"Giovanna was absolutely amazing to work with and I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone! As a first time mom, there was so much I didn’t know to expect or prepare for. Giovanna was always calm, collected, prepared, and professional, and was so emotionally and practically supportive to me and my husband — from the prenatal appointments through the birth and postpartum visits. She provided useful educational materials, asked great questions and helped clarify and communicate our birth preferences, showed us positions and activities for early labor, and brought a well-stocked “doula bag” to the birth with everything I didn’t know I wanted! She was available by text and phone whenever I had questions or medical updates prior to the birth (and helped talk me down when I got frustrated still being pregnant at 40 weeks!) and was so incredibly indispensable during a long and tough labor and delivery. Her calm and confident energy was a perfect match for what I needed. I cannot describe how helpful she was, and I’m not sure I could have done it without her. She also came out to our house for two follow-up postpartum visits, providing critical emotional support and processing of the birth experience during the first hard weeks, as well as physical help around the house and with the baby. We cannot thank her enough for supporting us through the hardest parts of this experience, so we can focus on enjoying our new baby! Her support was critical to making this a positive transition for all of us and we’re so grateful to have found her."
