Testimonials

"We can’t imagine having gone through the birth of our daughter Elsie without Darcie. I would strongly recommend having a doula to anyone, and Darcie exemplifies the support that a doula can provide. She helped us prepare for birth and supported us throughout several hours of back labor (overnight) as well as several hours of transition. Darcie was kind, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable about birth and the various options available to us. My husband also felt more comfortable and capable because she was with us. I also got the herbal 'add-on' package, which was a nice treat for mama and baby!"

"As first time parents we wanted a doula who could be our support system and help us carry out our desired natural birth plan. Darcie did this and so much more! Darcie truly understood the vision of what my husband and I wanted to gain from this experience and what efforts were needed by her to achieve it. Not only did she give us an amazing recommendation for birthing classes, pre and postpartum herbal remedies, she helped us understand the choices we had as parents, the options that would be presented to us, and allowed us work towards our birth plan the way we felt most comfortable. Through labor and delivery Darcie was the light to keep us persevering. Her wealth of knowledge, positive reassurance, and caring soul made what we thought would be a scary, chaotic, intense time, the most beautiful experience to look back on. Having Darcie be a part of such a life changing event was the best decision we could have made. Before, during and after delivery she was our advocate and provided endless amount of support. If and when my husband and I choose to have another child we'll be so blessed to have Darcie by our side again. Her passion for her profession is undeniable!"

"From birth until 12 months our son had been unable to pass stool on his own, only with rectal stimulation. We saw a series of pediatric specialists, none were able to find anything 'wrong' with our son. When he turned one we were advised to just watch and wait while giving him a 1 tablespoon of miralax every day in hopes that he would eventually start going on his own (a recommendation that we were not comfortable with). Right from birth we tried chiropractic, craniosacral therapy and diet modifications without any change in our sons condition. After learning about Darcie’s special interest in working with infants and children we booked an herbal consultation. She was able to set us up with an herbal plan that was safe for our son and easy to administer. Within 12 hours of giving him the first dose of herbs, he had a bowel movement on his own! At 16 months old he continues to pass stools on his own everyday within 20 minutes of taking his herbs, this is a true herbal miracle in our eyes! Ithaca is so fortunate to have Darcie as a knowledgeable and trusted member of the holistic health community!"
