After my experience with Om Mamas Doulas I really wish doulas were a standard part of care covered by insurance so all expecting families had access. Chelsea and Lauren guided me throughout my first pregnancy, offering support and advice to help me navigate the many decisions which would have otherwise been very overwhelming. It also gave my husband great peace of mind to know we had a team to help us during labor so he could just support me.
I know that without this team I would not have had the positive birth experience and enjoyable postpartum experience that I’ve been extremely fortunate to have had. Chelsea was everything my husband and I needed during labor: a guide, a coach, a cheerleader, and also good company! She is also the keeper of our birth story – she recounted the funny/unique moments that we’d nearly forgotten in our labor haze. We’re forever grateful to her and our midwife for our daughter’s unforgettable birth.
And then the fourth trimester support – having Kayla has been a game changer and so worth the continued investment. She’s given us all the resources and tools to make our breastfeeding journey possible and first weeks so enjoyable – giving us the energy and space to truly bond instead of feeling overwhelmed.
This is a team that truly cares and are absolute pros. Thank you Om Mamas team, from the bottom of our hearts!!
