  1. Alexis was my doula and a blessing:) at my pregnant and fit class our instructor Suzie higly recommended her. She is amazing just a beautiful human being, just the little personal touches like home baked cookies for my husband, and a personalized neck warmer:) I had a rough labour and Alexis was there every step of the way guiding and coaching. I developed a fever and she would put cold compresses on my forward. she noticed my husband was tired and hungry she picked up a snack for him. I can’t say enough amazing things about her. And when our beautiful son was born she promised she would tell my parents right away and she ran out into the waiting room to announce it to them full of tears and joy as if its hers. I think she’s truly an amazing woman and if you get the pleasure of having her as your doula you will be truly in awe of the things she would do. She is truly priceless:)
