“My doulas were so knowledgeable and supportive. They often anticipated my needs and helped me make decisions that fit me and my family at every step of my pregnancy/delivery and early adjustment with baby. I highly recommend Ann Arbor Family Doulas!”

“Ann Arbor Family Doulas helped us enter parenthood feeling confident and supported in ways we were not equipped to on our own. Even though the pregnancy and birth did not follow our birth plan, we were supported every step of the way and guided through many difficult decisions without bias or judgment and with tons of compassion….Every family would be incredibly lucky to work with Ann Arbor Family Doulas, and we will certainly have them by our side for our next baby too. We also received incredible postpartum support from Sierra and Tracy and recommend the placenta encapsulation services as well.”

“Kristen helped us labor at home and at the hospital – on her own birthday! – as we prepared to welcome our daughter. We were blown away by her dedication and helpfulness as she provided physical and emotional support through a long labor. The best recommendation we can give is this: if we are blessed with another baby, we will definitely hire Kristen to support us through that birth as well.”

“Sierra was an essential part of my birth experience in 2013. Her confidence, kindness and years of wisdom helped me to feel safe and secure through pregnancy and homebirth. She also helped my mom through her anxieties for my wellbeing and I was so grateful to have her as an ally in that regard. Sierra is phenomenal and I HIGHLY recommend Ann Arbor Family Doulas!”
