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.
