Alyssa and her entire team of Postpartum Doulas that supported my family following my son’s birth were phenomenal. They helped me and my husband get longer stretches of sleep at night, did the dishes and never-ending piles of laundry, they helped my two year old daughter get ready in the mornings, and got breakfast ready for her while I nursed my baby. They were constantly asking me if I needed anything, and sometimes stayed up all night with my son so I didn’t have to. Every single one of them is exceptionally professional and went above and beyond the call of duty! Their help allowed me to focus on myself and my newborn, heal faster, and bond with him during the day. It was a pleasure to get to know each of them, and appreciate their genuine care and compassion for the whole family. I can’t recommend Gold Coast Doulas highly enough!
