Postpartum Testimonials

 

Trang became our postpartum Doula when my son George was six weeks old. I was an exhausted overwhelmed mother with a toddler running around and a new baby who didn’t yet sleep through the night. Trang came in and helped me with literally everything in my life. She brought me delicious food, helped me keep my house tidy, helped me with (seemingly endless) laundry and most importantly nurtured and loved baby George like he was her own. I finally started to get some rest and feel like I could get my head above water with her help! To this day when George sees Trang he lights up and reaches for her! He absolutely loves her! She is a person with endless patience and a heart of gold and would be a welcome addition to any family in need!

I didn’t even know what a postpartum doula was before I met Trang. Now I know how helpful having one can be. I am a board certified veterinary internist with years of medical training under my belt. I waited until I was 38 years old and had been married for over 7 years to have my first child yet I felt overwhelmed and frankly a bit clueless about motherhood. Trang is kind, warm, and most importantly, knowledgable. I found her to be genuinely caring and it was easy to talk to her about anything even the first time we met. She helped me with laundry, figuring out things I did and did not need, breast feeding, and had tips regarding my health and the health of my baby. Not only did I feel comfortable with her in my home, I really enjoyed having her there. Sometimes as a new mom you really just need someone to listen to you, assist you, and advise you in a friendly and nonjudgmental way. Trang is that person and I would recommend her without hesitation. I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with her and continue to reach out to her and perhaps more amazingly her to me to check in. I really appreciate her and her advice. I can’t imagine anyone not benefiting from her support!

After a high risk pregnancy  that ended up in strict bed rest, my husband and I knew we needed some expert help to care for baby and I postpartum while I got back on my feet. Trang came as a lifesaver the first day I got back home from the hospital: After a 48 hr induced labor followed by a c-section, I clearly remember dragging my feet from bed to the living room with my empty bottle of water in hand, hoping to fill it out on the way to meet her.. Trang grabbed it from me, filled it up, helped me sit on the couch, got pillows all around me, then proceeded to lift my feet up on a footstool. Two minutes later, she whipped out a plate of deliciously cold and sweet cantaloupe for me to snack on– I knew then I was going to love this woman for life.

I can honestly say that I trust and value Trang’s opinion in all aspects regarding breastfeeding, pumping and storing breast milk, and healthy eating/meals, she even showed me how to properly bathe my little one. Most importantly, I was able to truly relax knowing that my newborn was in good hands while I caught up with some well needed sleep..

I delivered my son via emergency c-section and a couple weeks after being home alone with him, because my husband works long hours during the day and I do not have family in the area, I was desperate for help! In a panic, I got on the internet and found postpartum doulas and Trang’s name came up.  I immediately called her and she was nice enough to agree to see me the next day! When she came over she made sure I had water and a meal. She made me a fresh arugula salad for lunch and a delicious pot of soup for me and my husband to have for dinner. She helped me with nursing and provided advice. When my son fell asleep she urged me to get some rest while she took care of my laundry and tidied up my home. She was so caring and nurturing with my son and me. After her visit, she continued to check in with me and made herself available when I had questions or just needed to talk to someone. She was the support that I needed to get through my postpartum time. It was like having my mother or best friend there. I would highly recommend her to anyone!!

Trang was a great help to me when we brought our second daughter home from the hospital. Everything from cooking, to helping us keep the house tidy while also helping me with the baby and my two and a half-year-old daughter. It made the transition so much smoother. She was really wonderful and we felt very comfortable with her in our home!
