"Edoukou was the doula I didn’t know I needed. This is my first pregnancy and I didn’t know what to expect, with her by my side I felt like I had a support person who genuinely cared and wanted ME, the MOTHER to be in a great space. She was always there when I contacted her, always made sure to check on me and made sure she found the answers for my questions. She helped me make a birth plan and made sure to break everything down so I can make the best choices. When it was time to give birth she stayed with me the entire time(30 hours). As I stated this is my first pregnancy and it was natural so I was scared because of the stories I’ve heard but with her and my significant other by my side giving me words of encouragement, giving me massages, continuously checking that I was staying calm from helping me with my breathing to distracting me when I had an contraction. When my labor was taking too long and I didn’t think I could make it she spoke soft words to remind me of my birth plan, she gave suggestions on things I can do to help with my labor. When plans had to change she would give her honest opinion and help me make the best decision. Honestly without her I don’t know if I would be able to make it through my birth. I love Edoukou and she has become family. I will be using her as my doula for any future pregnancy. I was truly blessed to have found her as a doula. I never had a moment of doubt that she was the doula for me." -Esther G

"As a first time, single mom to twins Edoukou was an essential part of my first 12 weeks postpartum as my postpartum doula. There were many days where Edoukou was the only reason I got a stretch of sleep. She made my life easier by keeping my girls alive (honestly some days the only thing I could care about getting done). Beyond that she helped me reset for the day by having my dishes done, my laundry cleaned, my diapers restocked, and my kids clothes folded and reorganized when they grew out of their preemie, newborn, and then 0-3 months all within 12 weeks. When helping while I was awake, Edoukou helped me ensure my fridge was full and my meals were prepped. She was an essential part of my postpartum team, and one reason why my preemies were able to thrive and be “caught up” on the growth curve by three months. As a first time twin mom it’s easy to feel like you’re drowning and Edoukou’s presence was always a breath of fresh air - bringing me positivity, understanding, and a chance to reset my head and get back into the mental game of motherhood. She was my teammate in early postpartum and when my 12 weeks of leave was over I felt prepared to reenter the work force thanks to her support. She will forever be a part of our family’s first days and choosing and trusting her for postpartum was one of the best moves I made while pregnant." - Kelly F.
