"Cynthia has been nothing but helpful, even from states away! She’s always there to answer questions and gives very helpful and useful information, even if it’s at 2 am. She’s helped me more than she knows on my breastfeeding journey and if it wasn’t for her I don’t think I would have been able to make it this far. She does not make you feel like any question or concern is silly and will give you the constant reassurance, and checks in on you periodically! Highly recommend!"

"Cynthia is very well educated and well informed in childbirth,postpartum and lactation. She is very passionate about the work she does and is very open about her own birth stories. My partner was having lower back pain and Cynthia knew the pressure points to help relieve the pain. She showed us different positions and techniques to help with labor. She goes above and beyond for her clients and is very hands on, which helped me tremendously as a partner. Cynthia has a very welcoming and nuturing vibe, she was always looking out for our best interest and helped us through stressful decisions. I highly recommend her! We felt heard and respected."

I’m so glad I found Cynthia! She was an amazing person to have on my side and went above and beyond to make myself and my partner feel comfortable throughout the entire pregnancy and birth process. I very much appreciated that she not only brought her own experiences to the table but was also a wealth of educational resources. Cynthia took the time to connect in person, via video, and through text before, during, and after the birth. I highly recommend her, not only as a doula, but for encapsulation and lactation needs as well. She truly makes you feel cared for, listened to, and respected
Cynthia was very kind and sincere. She was very accessible and answered questions quickly, day and night. She's very knowledgeable about pregnancy, birthing, postpartum and infant care. Cynthia was very inclusive of my partner and was able to communicate with him in Spanish when needed. She also helped me find resources for baby items. When it came time to deliver, she was willing to come to my home when I felt I needed support. She was very supportive of my home birth.
Cynthia is a beautiful soul who was my rock during my Pandemic homebirth. She supported my 4th birth and second homebirth. I am very educated on the topic of birth. But Cynthia brings so much more information that I didn't even know. Having her as your doula will drastically improve your support system. I highly recommend her to everyone I know. I love Cynthia's dedication to serving women. She has a passion for serving women that's like no other. I have never felt so seen and heard when it came to having a say about my births. Highly recommend her to everyone seeking a doula.
Cynthia and her services exceeded my expectations (which were already high) by a long shot! She is super thorough, prompt, compassionate and really looks after mama’s and their families. I am so thankful to have found her and I highly highly recommend. She offers a wide range of care which is really nice to be able to find all in one doula. Cynthia threw in some extra goodies with my order and they were so thoughtful. I’ll cherish my first birth forever and I can thank her for a big part of that! Thank you Cynthia<3
I am so grateful I found Cynthia to be my doula. I was initially thinking I wouldn’t want a doula, as I thought I did my research and classes, but I am SO glad I searched for a doula and hired Cynthia. Being my first labor/ birth, I wanted to find someone who not only was experienced in all types of births (home, birth center, hospital) but also someone who has experienced giving birth herself. Cynthia was always available to answer questions and was extremely knowledgeable. As soon as I went into labor, she drove right over and was supportive of not only me but also my boyfriend and family. She guided me through my entire labor. I was at a birth center and unfortunately had to be transferred to a hospitals Cynthia was there with me at the birth center and hospital. She advocated for me at the hospital as they did not have my birth plan. Even though it wasn’t my ideal plan, I was still able to have my unmedicated birth that I wanted, and Cynthia guided me through that. I highly recommend having Cynthia as a doula. I will be contacting her for my next pregnancies for sure!
I contacted Gentle Love Doula for the placenta encapsulation service. She was prompt in picking up the placenta from the hospital and had delivered the capsules to my house a few days later. The placenta print and dried cord included in the package are such sweet keepsakes. Would highly recommend Gentle Love Doula to any expecting mom.
