From Our Clients
"Dana is a caring, supportive, and wonderful doula. She recently attended my home birth and was such a blessing to us. Since my birth happened so fast my midwife's birth attendant couldn't make it. Dana stepped right in and helped the midwife with whatever she needed as well as supporting me, encouraging me, rubbing my back, and reassuring my daughter that everything is fine with mommy. I look forward to some after birth care from her too. I highly recommend Dana."
Sarah G. (Mom)
"Dana was an intuitive, calming presence as my doula. By the time we called her, she was already almost to the hospital, which was way earlier than the nurses had predicted. She gently talked me through the contractions and just soothed me as it was my first baby and it was all new to me! In the end, though I had to be induced (and she helped talk me through some things in regard to my options), I was able to have a natural delivery, which was my hope. I highly recommend Dana!"
Jennaca B (mom)
"I was very blessed to have Jenny Ervin assist me while in labor with our first child, in 2011. I hadn't known her for very long, but her professional and warm approach, combined with her skill in helping to alleviate pain and problem solve were so very helpful. She truly helped to make the labor more bearable with her knowledge and support. I am so glad that she is pursuing doula training in a more professional capacity, as this is truly a gift she possesses, and she will be able to bless many others with her training."
Anne-Marie F. (mom)
"Dana talked over what we wanted at our birth, different laboring positions, and kept in touch, throughout all of my pregnancy. She was a phone call or text away. When the time came to have our baby, Dana went with us to the hospital and encouraged me during contractions, asked if I needed or wanted to try anything different periodically, and—most important of all!—alternated with Tommy in rubbing my abdomen during contractions to ease the pain. I was in labor for a total of 5.5 hours and she was amazing to have from labor to birth! It was a privilege to have Dana as our doula and would love to hire her again in the future."
