“Doula support is something every parents should have. We struggled for four long days without sleep. Liz sat with me and helped us calm and feed our baby. She showed us how to soothe her. She really made me feel good. While I showered she held our baby and changed our sheets. I recommend First Coast Doulas to everyone for postpartum and newborn doula support.” ~Candice Rice
