"Kristina and her team at Timeless Ways Doula Services were a Godsend for me and my husband during our first few months with newborn twins. They were nothing short of amazing during their time with us. Prior to giving birth to my twin girls, we had it suggested to us many times, from other twin parents, that if we should splurge on anything it should be a nighttime doula. After discussing at length with my husband about how we would make this work schedule-wise and financially, we decided to research nighttime doulas and came across Timeless Ways Doula Services. From the very first meeting with Kristina and her mom Rosie, I knew that they were the team for us. Their obvious expertise, honest loving care, and willingness to work with whatever plans we desired was very much appreciated by us nervous second-time parents, but soon to be first-time newborn twin parents. After our baby girls were born, Kristina, Rosie and Leanne started coming to our house on a varying schedule until we settled on the exact times we needed the most help, which was 10pm-6am. During those times they would help put the babies to sleep in a nearby room, change their diapers or soothe them when they woke up, keep track in a notebook of their dirty/wet diapers, feeding times, and particular notes from the night, and bring the babies to me to nurse when they were hungry. This last part was amazing as my husband and I were able to sleep for periods of time during the night and not have to wake at every little sound the babies made. An added bonus was the suggestions her team gave me regarding nursing twins, diaper rashes, eating behaviors, and a caveat of other subjects that greatly aided me along the way. After a few months my husband and I started thinking we could do it by ourselves and with the help of Kristina's flexible team schedule we slowly (and sadly!) weaned ourselves from our amazing doulas and had enough courage and knowledge provided to us by Timeless Ways to do it ourselves. I can definitely say the first three months of transitioning to newborn twins was made extremely comfortable by the Timeless Ways Doulas."
"Kristina is an absolute angel. Never did I feel rushed at the appointments before my labor or like any question was out of bounds or off limits. Kristina's wonderful zen energy and coaching is definitely the reason I made it through 19 hours of unmedicated labor. She is the perfect mix of involved yet not pushy and helped empower me to make informed decisions during the labor process.
After I gave birth she still didn't rush off but stayed to talk with me, my mom and my husband and to help with latching. So grateful that Kristina was part of welcoming our baby boy into the world.”
"Kristina is an amazing doula! She has a calm, positive and loving demeanor. Her unobtrusive and supportive manner was exactly what I needed when in labor with Marshall. I highly recommend this amazing woman!"

"My first pregnancy was an emotional roller coaster and I found a stabilizing presence and friend in Kristina. From the first interview we instantly clicked and I felt very connected with her. She became a fast friend and ally for my little family and I truly don't know how we would have gotten through it without her support. She gave us resources, listened when I needed an ear, and helped us cope with the unexpected turn of events that forced us to have a Cesarean.
She was our plus one in the surgery suite. She helped my little guy latch in the first 20 minutes post birth...and 7 months later she is still one of only a handful of people who can lull him to sleep in her arms. We are planning to use her with baby number two in a few years, because I can't imagine going through pregnancy without her. I cannot recommend her enough!"
"I am one of those people who believe everything happens for a reason. The way I met Rosie makes me believe it even more. The moment Rosie got to my house I was telling my husband that I didn't feel capable of getting inside of a car to go to a hospital. I felt completely powerless. I met Rosie at my bedroom door and she asked me how I felt? I said it hurts so badly and I hugged her. After that moment I felt blessed that she was going to be the woman to support me on that day and after 20 minutes with her I got the strength I needed to go to the hospital and deliver my baby. She was with me all day supporting my decisions and making sure I had the birth I wanted. I have nothing but great things to say about her. I was not able to share this moment with my mother, but sharing it with Rosie made it really special."

"Leanne never left our side. She rested when she could, ate when she could, and traded out with my husband so he could recharge as well. She provided amazing emotional and physical support for both of us. I’ll admit my labor process is a bit of a blurry memory, but I knew Leanne was there. I could feel her unspoken presence cheering me on and trying to ease the process. What I didn’t realize was how much of a support she was to my husband. He was my rock and Leanne was his. She provided guidance, reassurance, and love to him in the ways he needed it. I can never thank her enough for caring for my husband that way on top of caring for me.
Leanne has a gift for caring for pregnant women. Whatever your needs are- spoken or unspoken- she will be there. She became an integral part of our birth plan, and I highly recommend her to you as well. Whether this is your first baby or your last, Leanne will bring her knowledge, love, and support to you and your family."
"Timeless Ways Doulas made "bringing baby home" a smooth transition. It was almost too easy with the help of Rosie, Kristina, and Leanne, our postpartum doulas, who cared for our baby Oliver as if he was their own from the very first night we came home from the hospital . Our doulas are so incredibly nurturing and taught me how to overcome the challenges I faced taking care of a newborn that I could not learn or truly understand in any of the birthing classes I'd taken.
When breastfeeding became difficult and I felt like giving up, Rosie encouraged me and showed me different ways that even the lactation consultant never mentioned.
This support reached far beyond baby Oliver and I and helped ease our entire family into the changes. Getting that much needed extra sleep at night was life changing, especially for Dad who had lots of early meetings following Oliver's birth.
We loved our doulas so much that we continue to work with them to this day (Oliver is now 19 months old) and consider them to be a part of the family. We highly recommend Timeless Ways Doulas to parents and soon-to-be parents and can't wait for them to meet baby #2 someday very soon!"
