Allow us to preface this page by stating the honor of attending and supporting families is all ours. These kind words go above and beyond the intense and indescribable journey they have already allowed us to share with them. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
It was a pleasure having Becca as our doula! We chose Becca to support the birth of our first child because of her clear passion for her work as a doula. We also felt a connection with her that continued throughout our experience. In our prenatal meetings she was resourceful and knowledgeable, and seemed interested in getting to know us personally. Leading up to labor, Becca provided us with resources to answer our questions. In the last weeks of pregnancy, she made herself available to us 24/7, responding to our questions promptly, positively, and with the perfect amount of information for us to feel comforted or to investigate further. We definitely recommend Becca to anyone considering a doula for their birth. If we have more children, Becca will be our first call! We can’t imagine having gone through labor and birth without her in the room with us and we are incredibly grateful to her.

My husband and I hired Bethany for the birth of our son, and now two years later, were thrilled to be able to use her services again for the birth of our daughter. We had such a positive experience the first time around that we knew immediately we wanted to have Bethany by our side again for my second labor. We were so glad we made this decision and would highly reccommend Bethany to anyone looking for a doula in MA. Her soothing and reassuring presence in the labor room is a breath of fresh air! We felt lucky to have Bethany's guidance, support & knowledge as we welcomed our two babies into the world. Thank you Bethany!
Having Bethany as a Doula was more than my husband Jason and I could ever have imagined. We had very little family support and this being our first child together, we really wanted to have the best experience possible. (And throw in some mom anxiety in there too!) The biggest draw to Bethany is her passion and approachability. The first day we met, I knew she had my best interest at heart and that she would be my advocate through it all.
Bethany was always there to listen, ask questions to, need some nudging (see mom anxiety above) but most importantly, she wanted you to embrace your pregnancy and delivery journey and make it your own. She has an amazing rapport with all the doctors and staff at my OB-GYN office and delivery hospital and it’s clear to see why. She calms the anxious dads and soothes the nervous moms just with her presence alone. (Not to mention amazing massages!!) We will forever be grateful for having Bethany with us!
Becca provided wonderful support to me and my husband for the birth of my second child. Her informative, open, and calm style was also very reassuring as late stage pregnancy and labor were new territory (and sort of scary). Becca joined us at the hospital when it was time, and provided the perfect amount of support throughout. She interpreted my changing mood/needs well, providing suggestions/assistance and letting me do my own thing as most appropriate at the time. Overall, I felt like I had a strong team backing me up, and am so glad she was with us. All of the nurses also mentioned afterward how great she was to have in the room. I highly recommend Becca's doula services. Besides the wonderful support she provides, it was an absolute pleasure getting to spend time with such a lovely, fun person.
Bethany was not only our doula, meeting with us a couple of times prior to the birth, but also taught us childbirth education and encapsulated my placenta. She led us through a very thorough review of what to expect during the birth, techniques for pain reduction, ways to prepare my body for birth, and options for delivery itself. This last part was especially helpful for me as I did end up opting for pain medication (an epidural) during delivery. Bethany supported me the whole way through, ensured that I was positive about my decision to take the pain medication, and never once judged me or was let down that I took a different avenue than we had prepared for. Even through the epidural, Bethany held my hand, helped me focus and made sure that my husband was supported every step of the way. We had a long labor and could honestly have not made it without Bethany's support. She is a friend and teacher all in one!
