Amanda was a god send. She was so knowledgeable, comforting and supportive - like a cheerleader, and really helped guide my husband in supporting me. She was a key player to have along during the pregnancy and through the labor. She was always available when I had questions, and showed up quickly when I went into labor on thanksgiving night. She’s dedicated, judgment free, strong, caring and sympathetic. Just the kind of woman you’d want by your side for the most special time of your life. I’m blessed I was able to have her with me.

I was interested in having a natural birth and using alternative methods throughout my journey.  She was well informed regarding all the different options available to me. Amanda listened to my concerns and desires and provided me with exactly what I needed. She accompanied me to various birthing centers and hospital locations in order for me to choose what was right for my birth. I was so happy to receive informational emails from Amanda throughout my pregnancy pertaining to my specific needs. All in all, I am so happy I decided to work with Amanda and have her as my Doula!

"As a first time mother I had no idea what to expect in pregnancy and birth. But from the very first time I sat down with Amanda I walked away more confident, less scared, and totally empowered. She was always a text away when I had a question and seemed to check in on my at just the right time, every time. My husband and I felt prepared for the unexpected and were able to utilize techniques and tools we learned from Amanda even though my birth experience DID take a few of those unexpected turns. Not a week went by in my pregnancy that we didn’t look at each other and say, “Thank God for Amanda".

"I am so grateful to have had Amanda by my side at the birth of my first baby. She was incredibly supportive and attentive throughout the whole process, especially during the most challenging parts of delivery. We were able to experience an unmedicated birth, and while that was always our hope— I don’t know if it could’ve happened without Amanda's invaluable support and presence in the room."

Sophie Shalenberg

"Having Amanda by my side during my daughter’s birth, helped give me confidence to follow my body’s lead and to trust the birth process. My husband was even able to nap comfortably, because he knew Amanda was there. It was like having an old friend by my side, keeping things calm, making sure everything was ok, working with us to welcome our baby girl into the world as gently as possible. Amanda was almost as excited as we were to meet our daughter; she is truly passionate about being a doula, which makes her amazing!"

Amanda was such a great asset to my birthing experience. I am grateful that I had her by my side during my delivery. I had the most peaceful, relaxing, calm delivery in the hospital and she helped the whole way through.
Thank you Amanda!

  • So thankful for Amanda, the LA Doula! With her at my side I was able to have a successful and empowering vbac. I was a bit scarred from my first birth and Amanda helped me to process those feelings and encouraged me so much this time around. She helped me feel confident and secure in the hospital and I was able to advocate for myself without fear. Plus she's just super fun and calming to be around! I would recommend her to anyone looking for a doula.

She was there via text and call every step of the way since hospitals weren't allowing for doulas during that time.

As amazing as the pre care was, the postpartum follow up with me was what I found most helpful. I had an emergency c section and being able to share and process that with Amanda as doula, mom, friend, was invaluable. To have someone ask questions I didn't even know to ask yet, someone who cared but wasn't my partner or family.

I would say if you are opting for a more natural unmedicated birth, Amanda is your resource. If you're feeling like you already know you want to be medicated then I would voice that straight away. I know she will advocate for you and what you want but sees such beauty and power in unmedicated births that she may ask you about your thoughts on that.
Amanda was my dream doula.

Amanda is amazing! I don't know how I would have gotten through my 48ish hour labor without her (and my hubs)! She made our room in the hospital feel cozy, smell good, and made sure we were fed and hydrated the whole time. Amanda went above and beyond for me and my family and we couldn't be more thankful! There was so much peace going into my daughter's birth due to all the support Amanda provided. She also took some of the greatest photos for us throughout the whole time. If you're looking for a doula, Amanda is definitely your gal!
