Samantha ended up being my doula because mine was with another mom. She jumped right in and was immediately on the same page as me. She supported my medicated birth and helped me with my anxiety. She jumped in with ideas to help turn baby and was amazing with keeping myself and my husband informed and hydrated. Even having never met me before she did amazing adjusting to my behaviors as they changed from making jokes to yelling and screaming. I honestly do not think I could have done the 4 hours of pushing for a sunny side up birth without her! Thank you thank you!!
Samantha was awesome! Incredibly friendly, experienced, knowledgeable, and dependable I'm so grateful for all of her support. She really did go above and beyond.
Sam is an excellent resource for consultation and support. Knowledgeable, friendly, and very helpful.
Doula Mae is an awesome doula. All my clients that have used her have loved the quality of care they received.

Samantha is very knowledgeable, helpful, friendly, professional, and compassionate. She is flexible, easily reached and has a very fast response time. I would highly recommend her!
When finding out I was pregnant, I knew right away I wanted to encapsulate my placenta. My theory was, "many mammals consume their placenta after birth. Why now humans?" Samantha and I talked a lot about benefits of placenta consumption and we were both very excited to see what benefits it would bring me. I was very afraid of the healing process after birth and Sam assured me that the placenta pills would help - and they did. My milk came in nice and strong 4 days postpartum and I have never had issues with my supply. Also, I was apprehensive and nervous about developing postpartum depression (especially because I was having my baby in the middle of winter when seasonal depression is also at an all time high). I never once felt sad, depressed, or regretful after birth and I credit that to my placenta. I did feel a little "grossed out" by consuming my placenta and I choose not to see it after birth. When receiving the pills from Samantha, they looked much like vitamins and had virtually no taste (which was ideal for me). If you were to ask me if I would do it again - I would say yes 100 times and recommend every new mother also take a chance because the benefits FAR outweigh the risk!
Samantha arrived quickly at the hospital after my delivery to pick up my placenta. She had my pills made and delivered super quick also. The pills are working wonders and I swear by them. Samantha did wonderful pictures for me and a beautiful placenta picture with frame!!!! I also did the cord keepsake which is super cute also. Even though the dr cut the cord short Samantha still made it work for me. I would definitely recommend and return to Samantha for future doula services. My husband even swears by the pills. He will actually ask "did you take your pills?" And this is coming from someone who thinks holistic methods are just a placebo effect. So the power of the pill is real!
Samantha was great and I highly recommend her. I contacted her last minute (was already home with baby) & she had my placenta picked up within 24 hours of contacting her and than within 24 hours of picking it up had it dropped back off to me- she also sent me photos & made some cool placenta prints. I have really noticed a difference thus far in how I feel postpartum compared to my previous babies so I am glad I chose to encapsulate my placenta. Thank you so much Samantha!
I can’t believe how amazingly fast and timely she was. Within 24 hours she picked up my placenta then had it delivered to me the very next day. These pills I swear have helped me with breastfeeding so far with my daughter. I even have my boyfriend helping me remember to take them through out the day.
