"I highly recommend them! When it comes around to having my second child I couldn't imagine having anyone else by my side then these two lovely ladies! You won't regret it!" - Stephanie B.
"Good to have Home Girls like these. All it takes is meeting them to know they are the real deal and who you want to have around during one of the hardest most important moments in your life. With Home Girls I not only found amazing birth workers to help me in bringing my baby into the world, but friends who enrich me and my family still." - Alana F.
"Heather from Home Girls was my postpartum doula for a couple weeks when my baby girl was 5-6 weeks old. She was truly exceptional and I wholeheartedly recommend her." - H.S.
