Angela was sensitive to everyone in the home bringing a positive energy. She was very hands-on and made me feel good about taking time for myself. She helped my elder boy adjust to having a sibling. Overall, she was a highly competent and caring doula.
Angela was quietly supportive and caring, giving me the space to talk and debrief about my birth and feelings around that. She thought of creative and unobtrusive ways to support my husband who is less used to accepting support.
The love she had for our baby was wonderful to see and the way she cared for him made us trust her immediately. She was one of the most empathetic person I have ever met and would 100% recommend her.
