What are some positive comments made about you by other people?:
“When I was pregnant with my first in 2015, Lisa was not a doula and was not even on her register to become one, but she wanted to help me (her sister in law) with labor and delivery and I was definitely not going to say no to help! Very thankful that Lisa –before she even was a doula – was there to help with the delivery of my first and it’s been amazing to see that that experience made her want to pursue the doula life.” -Christina Canfield
