Theresa - New Grandma

Since we don’t really have doulas service in our home country, we found ourselves not knowing what to expect.

Thanks again for sending your doulas here, their knowledge and expertise changed our lives dramatically and made parenting so much easier! More than anything, their warm support and kind words brought both me and my wife to tears.

The Chen Family

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!

We loved having Tricia help our family out. Our triplets took to her right away! I would say with her experience of having twins she had no problem adjusting to two or even three babies crying! She was always so helpful in any way she could be. I never had to ask her to do anything she just DID. Which is huge after having multiples and recovering from a C-section. You try to be super mom and do everything yourself, but she was for sure my “out”. I loved having Tricia come to our home, and most importantly I was able to trust her right away with our little blessings. She was like family to us and I am forever grateful for her help and advice!
