“Samantha is extremely compassionate, considerate, reliable, and knowledgable of pregnancy and birth. She was understanding and respectful, taking my needs into consideration, making sure I was understood and taken care of - exactly what a doula should be. She works well with clients who have difficult pregnancies or are in crisis, and is able to handle conflict and stress very well."
