Ok...friends in Waco who are pregnant or have a friend or family who is...I can not say enough good things about Post Partum Doula services of Waco. For the past 3 months since having Hagan, Tonja Carpenter has been there to help support us through this transition and has been a huge blessing to our whole family & been a huge part of what has made this transition the easiest so far. From helping with laundry, dishes, making a delicious meal every time she came (what Mom of littles wouldn't want that?!) to watching the boys so I could get a peaceful shower without interruptions (again, what mom of littles wouldn't want that?!). But the most valuable part of having her come is the wisdom and guidance she provided in caring, not just for Hagan but also for our whole family. She helped me notice ways that I could give each of my other boys special time, encouraged me in how to raise them to honor and obey, and read books and played imaginary games with them. She checked in on my husband Brandon and in the beginning when he was home with us, made sure he took some time to get out and recharge for himself. And as for me, she always knew how to ask the right questions and make sure I was taking care of myself physically, spiritually and emotionally and encouraging me to abide in Christ, which is something I have really grown in since having Tonja in our lives.

The doula's support brought order to the day and she gave me reassurance and more confidence because I was able to talk about different mothering issues. The weekly grocery store run was a real blessing to my husband and I.

We were so glad to have Tonja's help during the first weeks with our new baby. Tonja gave us practical advice and tips about breastfeeding, making sure the entire family's needs were being met, and even how to do simple tasks (that can seem daunting to a sleep-deprived parent) like giving a newborn a bath. She was a cheerful and happy presence in our house that provided major stress relief. During those early days when everything was a blur, she gave us comfort and moments of rest. Even just holding the baby while mom showered helped everyone to feel human. The delicious breakfasts that she made were like a miracle that filled us up while draining away worry. We were so grateful to have her as our postpartum doula.

Tonja provided doula services for our family for about a month after my last pregnancy she made the process much smoother and less stressful for me and my husband I cant imagine doing it without her. The wealth of knowledge she had and just a kind sympathetic person to talk to were such a relief and on top of that she helped me take care of the little but important things around the house such as grocery shopping and cooking and even cleaning, doula services are a must have for any future pregnancies I might have.
