Location Matters

SUMMER CLASSES ARE ON THE NEAR HORIZON!  STAY TUNED!!

Telia brings a deep well of labor support skills and an equally deep well of compassion to every labor.  As a labor nurse I was always happy to see Telia because I knew she was my other half.  She is a gift to our community.

-Anna H

Luna was an incredible partner and especially helpful in providing information and clarifying options when we had to navigate more difficult decisions.

--LM

During 24+ hours of labor, Luna was a grounding and encouraging presence.  I honestly wouldn't have been able to make it as far as I did without her gentle reminders and suggestions.  And during the early postpartum period, she was there with validation and witnessing--she even saved me from an awful plugged duct by suggesting resources.  It makes me so happy to know Luna is providing doula support in our community!

 

--MZ

Luna stepped in when our trusted support withdrew from us in our time of need.  Luna got to know us and made us more comfortable with ourselves and each other.  I appreciate how you were there for both and all of us.

--JC

Luna offered wise reminders and witnessed me in my strength and believed in my Warrior Mama spirit--showing so much respect and empathy.  My heart is happy to know Luna is in my community supporting families before, during and after the intensity of birth.

--MZ

Telia was kind and supportive during my change of birth plan.  During the chaos the only thing I was focused on was Telia telling me it was going to be okay.  I would recommend Telia hands down to anyone who is having a baby.  The love and care she puts into not only the birth but checking on us after was absolutely amazing.  When we have our second, Telia will be there with us again.

-Jess S.

Luna brought great perspective to the table and really helped me prepare for bringing my babe into the world.

--BK

Luna's advice throughout all these months made me feel prepared and confident.

--AH

It was comforting to have Luna as part of the process and be able to talk through the last stages of pregnancy.  Also, to help further process our feelings about our first experience!  Thank you Luna for being on call so quickly for another rapid birth!

--SO

This was our third baby and our first time using a doula.  Luna helped me to process our previous birth experiences and really helped me to hone in on and actualize my desires for this birth.  Luna is warm as well as knowledgable, and had a wealth of resources for anything I sought support for.

 

--MS

I was somewhat frightened by the recent rising maternal mortality and child morbidity rates in Black families.  Telia not only assisted us through our pregnancy with information but was there as the liaison with our medical staff with things just didn't sound right.  She came to appointments, taught my husband techniques to help me in labor, and even visited after baby was born.  Overall Telia was an amazing doula and helped me have the most amazing birth experience.  I'm excited to work with her again when the time comes!

-Tamara S "Rina"

Luna stayed with us through the labor to postpartum transition, which I was nervous about.  She helped to make our postpartum room a sanctuary.  This effort helped me to feel cared for and comfortable in our space so that I could focus on resting and bonding as a family across the first couple of postpartum days in the hospital before going home.

--MS

Luna offered a warm, grounding, and heart-filled presence every step of the way.  We are so grateful she was part of our birth experience!

 

--C&HW

Luna provided a wealth of knowledge, gentle advice, and unwavering support through the third trimester and during our postpartum months.  Luna helped us navigate a number of issues during those chaotic, but precious, months...she even helped us find a nanny!  It was great to have someone--other than our medical care provider--whom we could turn to whenever we had questions or concerns.  I would, without hesitation, recommend Luna to anybody thinking about hiring a doula.

 

--JF

 I appreciated Luna's expertise, insight, and gentle, caring nature through out our prenatal visits, laborite, and postpartum visits.  We would recommend Luna to any family looking for support in their childbirth journey.

--MS

These days, when people no longer speak to each other at the market or on the street, isolation has become a major source of general anxiety.  The pregnant [person], especially, needs contact with others; the presence of a supportive community makes [them] feel happier and more secure.
