"Elyse was an amazing support for our family during the 8 months she worked with us as our postpartum doula. She is kind, empathetic, knowledgeable, professional and flexible with client needs and scheduling. Our daughter responded extremely well to her. I cannot imagine my postpartum experience without her. I highly recommend Elyse to anyone looking for a postpartum doula!"
