We were so lucky to have Odessa as our doula for the birth of our twins! The multiple pre-birth visits gave us time to calmly work through our birth plan, think, revise, and truly feel ready for this adventure. She also made sure we were ready for after the birth, helping us get our home ready, and feel comfortable swaddling/wearing/feeding, etc. She is a caring, intuitive, professional doula who knows how to make sure everyone is supported. With twins, complications are expected, and having a birth plan B and C (and D!) are necessary. She made sure to fully understand my priorities so that she could advocate for me at every stage (which she did). She was in close communication leading up to the labor, was very professional (second cell phone, 24/7 response), and arrived exactly when specified. Her support during labor was essential to the success of the births. She was comforting and confident. It was a long labor with 5 hours between the twins, but she advocated repeatedly for m...

Odessa is extremely warm, intuitive, and dedicated. If I could give her a 10, I would. She is constantly continuing her birthing and doula education to provide the best up-to-date care. She cares for the whole family...mama, dad and baby(s)!

“I cannot recommend Odessa enough! I had thought about a doula in the beginning of my pregnancy but wasn't 100% sure that was the route I wanted. I met Odessa at a breastfeeding class and decided to contact her the next day. She went over everything with me and got rid of any doubts I had. We met up a few times before my son was born. We formed a birth plan and went over all possibilities and questions that I had. When labor started I let Odessa know and labored at home for a while. Odessa continuously checked in and was available anytime I wanted her. She arrived at the hospital shortly after I was admitted and stayed with me for 18 hours. Leaving only after all 3 of us were settled and my son was breastfed successfully. She was ready and willing to help me in any way possible. Recommending different methods to help me push and offering reassuring words through out the delivery process. She came over a few times after we were home to make sure I was meeting my breastfeeding goals and that my mood was okay. Bringing over gifts, educational handouts, and good company. To this day, I seriously swear I wouldn't have made it through without her! “
"Odessa worked hand in hand with the Midwife...Odessa advocated for me, explaining details...Without Odessa's coaching and guidance I would not have made it through labor...The midwife assisting me commented several times how well I was handling the situation and how supportive Odessa was throughout."
