About my amazing back up Doula!
I am super lucky to have a close working relationship with this wonderful lady who serves as my back up, support system and friend. Chloe Wilcox CD(DONA) and I cover each other for scheduled absences and emergencies. We feel that it is important to be able to spend time with family and have other activities outside of work. Knowing that my clients are covered while I take a day off is very important to me. I will notify you, my clients, of any scheduled days where she will be covering for me ahead of time. Chloe has been a Doula in our area for several years and has served all of her clients with kindness and confidence. She is Dona Certified and Spinning babies trained as I am.
