Making our clients happy makes us happy!
Mother Me has had the pleasure of working with more than 900 families. This is what some of our clients have said about our newborn care doula services.
We have so appreciated your support to our family over these past months and couldn’t imagine how much more challenging it would have been without having the help of your doulas. And thank you for all your flexibility and for communicating so well with us, it has been so nice being able to rely on your help and having you follow up with us so regularly.

We had Nimmi as a night-time doula from the time our twin boys were a few weeks old until they were about 3 months. She would come two nights a week to allow me some extra hours of sleep, handling the babies when they were in their fussier stage, and giving them a middle-of-the-night bottle once they were a bit older. She is very kind and gentle, and showed obvious affection for the babies. Nimmi is very supportive of breastfeeding and eager to help in whatever way she could. I definitely appreciated and relied on those nights of help during the early days!

I was so anxious about my husband going back to work and handling my newborn all by myself during the day while still recovering from a hard labor and birth. So my parents who live in Europe and couldn’t be there right away treated me to daytime doulas from Mother Me. This was the best gift ever. Doula Anna and Doula Rose were both amazing, each in their own way. They gave me time to rest and recover while I could trust them to watch my baby boy. They gave me lots of good advice as well and in the meantime I became more and more secure in handling the situation on my own. I can highly recommend this service to every new mom.

We are so grateful to the care provided by Mother Me. We had Penny visit overnight for 4 evenings as we welcomed our newborn. As new dads, we had lots to learn! Penny was very friendly and supportive and taught us various new skills. She helped us master burping the little guy. It was tremendous to be able to count on a good night sleep during this period of transition. We trusted Penny completely as we caught some shut eye. We highly recommend this service!

Mother Me got us off to a wonderful start with our first baby. We know that having the Mother Me doulas nearby from the very first night, during those early weeks and into the first few months contributed to our family in many ways.
From the success of our early bonding with our baby, to establishing a solid breastfeeding connection, supporting us in our chosen parenting styles, and in our relationship with each other. We will definitely be contacting Mother Me again when the time comes around for a second baby.

I had a colicky baby boy who wouldn’t sleep. My husband and I tried to find some night help, and luckily found out about Mother Me through a friend’s friend. Although I was hesitant to leave my newborn with a complete stranger, I was also desperate for some relief at night.
I met with Liza who came to my house and devised a care plan. She was personable and professional and I instantly felt at ease. A few days later I met with my night doula, which was fantastic. She was experienced, reliable, and very caring towards both me and my baby. Mother Me allowed me the rest I needed to survive those first difficult months with my colicky baby. They are an excellent resource that I would highly recommend.

Mother Me was invaluable in getting our household organized for twins, and supporting our choice to breastfeed. The knock on the door for our doula’s arrival was what I looked forward to all day.

Mother Me services are #2 in the hierarchy of things to do in connection with childbirth, right after #1, the epidural! We still feel that Mother Me may have been the best choice we have ever made as parents.
~ Used Mother Me for Their First and Second Baby
If not for our postpartum doula from Mother Me, I don’t think I could have kept up breastfeeding my twins. She gently coached me through the rough times and supported me all along our journey. She was an invaluable resource for both me and my husband – everything from bathing to breastfeeding our babies. Truly a fantastic doula!

When our twin girls came home from the hospital, I was completely overwhelmed. After three nights with almost no sleep I was a physical and emotional wreck – not to mention very frightened.
Thank heaven for Mother Me – a doula arrived on the fourth night and I felt intense relief. I truly believe I would have ended up in the hospital if I hadn’t had their help.
My doulas were so kind and professional and seemed to genuinely care about me and my babies. They got me on a schedule, taught me how to breastfeed both girls at once and reassured me when all I could do was cry. Mother Me was worth every penny.
