"I can’t say enough about Lyssa and the support she provides. Her devotion to assisting women in giving birth is inspirational. She helped me tremendously, both physically and mentally – before, during and after labor.
During labor, she helped me stay strong and get through the pain by massaging me, applying counter pressure and holding my hand. Her guidance allowed me to relax through the contractions and push efficiently and effectively.
Lyssa is calm, open, and understanding. She was everything I wanted in a doula and so much more. Meeting her was one of the greatest blessings of my pregnancy.
I will always be immensely grateful for Lyssa’s soothing presence during the birth of my son. She also took wonderful pictures of the delivery! I strongly recommend Lyssa as a doula." -Sierra
"A friend of ours knew Lyssa and introduced us (I was 7 months pregnant and really didn't know what a doula was or how using a doula might benefit both my husband and I).
We met with Lyssa on several occassions before delivery and through those experiences we felt that Lyssa was a calm, caring resource. It became very clear that having her help could ease our minds. While we love our friends and families, it was wonderful to find a third party that we could communicate with easily and was there to be an advocate, comforter, reminder, and an extra set of hands.
Both my husband and I praise Lyssa and feel that Melina's birth was so successful and a wonderful experience having had her guidance." -Lara
