When a woman finds out she is expecting, she can be flooded with overwhelming thoughts and emotions. Labored With Love can help you sort through those thoughts, focusing on what is most important to you and walk you through your pregnancy. Knowing what to expect throughout pregnancy and birth, as well as knowing how to facilitate open discussion with your health care provider, makes a world of difference in one’s overall experience and satisfaction of pregnancy and birth. Just as pregnant mothers may be unsure of what to expect, the families of these mothers may also find themselves unsure of their own roles. Labored With Love will help families adjust and learn ways in which they can engage and effectively support their mommy-to-be. Through the use of doula, private duty nursing, and lactation services, it is our desire to help unify the family unit by empowering them with knowledge and resources to make their own decisions and move forward confident in their abilities.more about us

"LYDIA WAS GREAT DURING MY LABOR. THIS WAS MY FIRST AND ONLY CHILD. I CONTACTED HER PRIOR AND REQUESTED HER. AT THE TIME AND DATE OF MY INDUCTION SHE MADE SURE SHE WAS SCHEDULED FOR THAT TIME AND HER SERVICE WAS EXCEPTIONAL AND NOTHING SHORT OF AMAZING. SHE EXPLAINED EVERY PROCEDURE AND HELPED ME FEEL AT EASE. AFTER DELIVERY SHE CONTINUED TO CHECK ON ME AND BABY THROUGHOUT. I COULDN'T HAVE DONE THIS WITHOUT HER. SHE DEFINITELY MADE MY FIRST EXPERIENCE A NICE AND RELAXED MOMENT. I WOULD DEFINITELY DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN AND MAKE SURE I USE HER SERVICES AGAIN."
" I would recommend Lydia to anyone. I had a very tough pregnancy luckily I was blessed with awesome nurses. Her service was exceptional I was terrified to deliver my son but with her constant support, prayers, and reassurance everything was going to be ok I was so blessed to have a happy but most importantly safe delivery of a handsome little prince. So if you're looking for a great doula who will make sure all your needs are met, you're informed of everything that's going on try her out you won't regret it "
"Greatest experience ever!!!! My daughter just had her second baby, my second gbaby! I was nervous because she had to have a c-section. Lydia was there from the beginning to the end. Her knowledge and bedside manner was the bombdigity! I had questions and she had answers! The comfort she gave me was awesome. I’m the gmama watching and waiting, so you can only imagine how the mother to be felt. Total awesomeness is what I experienced!!!!!!"
"Lydia was and is such a blessing. Breastfeeding was a very big challenge but she pushed me to keep going. It was so helpful having her to talk to and learn from. I'd recommend her without a doubt"
most definitely recommend Lydia because the work that she does and how she does it is truly amazing I have never met a Doula who was more compassionate and sincere....throughout the whole process everything through and through she was so thorough and she explained things perfectly....anyone who had a kid on the way I would most definitely recommend Lydia the Doula who's the best at this I have seen honestly"
I simply had the absolute best experience as a first time mom and I can’t imagine having done it without her! I would recommend Lydia to anyone looking for a great doula! At first, I wasn’t sure if I should hire a doula, but I’m SSOOOOO GLAD I DID! can’t imagine having done this without Lydia by my side! She was very attentive throughout the whole process and made me feel as prepared as one could be for their first time. Her background as a nurse also made me feel like I was in the best possible hands! I just can’t say enough about her as a person and a doula!If you are considering a doula for your labor, seriously look no further!!"
