"We used DCBD for both our baby's birth and also postpartum. Jen was the senior doula for our birth and she was amazing! She coached me through the whole process the day of, was kind, patient and very knowledgeable…We also had Rebecca as our post partum doula and we were also equally lucky and felt that we were in good hands! She did many of our firsts with us! Showed us how to bathe our baby, how to baby carry, going on a walk in the stroller for the first time and because she connected with Jen, she knew exactly what I had been through and was amazing at helping me build my confidence as a first time mom!”
