We are so incredibly thankful we found Doulas of Orange County! Being first time parents, we quickly learned just how hard it is to raise a newborn - especially when you have no family near by to help out. Doulas of Orange County helped us fill that void - serving as family when we needed it most. Between Allison and Sara (our two night time postpartum doulas), we were able to transition into parenthood a bit easier and work to get our baby on a schedule. We couldn’t have gotten through those first 8 weeks without them and would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for some extra support - especially at night!
