“Instantly comfortable”

I feel like every woman, no matter her situation, should have a postpartum doula. I was instantly comfortable with Deb in my home and with my baby. She was like a maternal Mary Poppins, helping me with all the work of new motherhood and teaching me along the way. I got so much comfort just from knowing she was coming. I cannot recommend this service and this agency more!

—Emily M.

“Invaluable guidance”

Everyone giving birth should have a doula from Doulas from Baltimore! Our doula provided my husband and I with invaluable guidance and education leading up to the birth of our son in December. She was a calm, steady, and incredibly supportive presence during the birth and postnatal time period. If you’re considering having a doula at your birth, I highly recommend this agency!

—Gretchen R.

“Worth every penny”

I recently utilized Doulas of Baltimore for the birth of my first baby and could not be happier with the support I received. My husband’s feedback: “worth every penny and will highly recommend to anyone”. Thank you again!

—Stephanie R.

“Her coaching got me through”

My doula was super responsive, helpful, non-judgemental, and knowledgeable throughout my pregnancy. She is absolutely the only reason I didn’t end up having to get a c-section—her coaching got me through a longer than normal pushing stage. My husband also really appreciated her presence and her support. Totally worth the money!

—J. H.

“Genuine care”

Doulas of Baltimore are amazing! Our doula helped guide us to resources and information regarding birth preferences and approaches as we prepared for the arrival of our first child and respected and supported our decisions. Throughout labor she offered her knowledge and comfort measures which was beyond helpful. The genuine care offered by Doulas of Baltimore will be forever a part of our son’s birth story.
