Happy Clients

We will remain forever grateful for selecting Doulas of Orange County and most specifically, having our doula there for the precious first weeks of our daughter’s life. Not only did she give us peace of mind and confidence - and some serious sleep at night! - but she loved and cared for our daughter like no one else. Her loving attitude, charisma, candor and gracious ways assured us we were doing all the right things and made the daunting first night’s with a newborn more than achievable. We know having a postpartum doula is a luxury and are so glad we made the decision to welcome a doula into our home.

We are so incredibly thankful we found Doulas of OC! 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 our two night time 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!
