      I have collaborated with Belle to support families with newborns and they all appreciated her energy and extensive knowledge about birthing options in the hospital or at home, hypnobirthing, preparing the pregnant body for birth, what to expect at the hospital and how to care for your newborn!

      With this pregnancy I wanted someone who would advocate for me and my needs and that’s just what I received. I was very adamant about having a natural birth and alternative pain control methods. So she introduced me to hypno birthing. I was very skeptical of the process but trusted her because she was very knowledgeable and frankly answered any questions I had. On the day I delivered I labored at home until it was time to go to the hospital. While I still experienced pain because nothing but drugs can really eliminate the pain. And let’s be honest sometimes it doesn’t even work. But I digress while I did feel pain it was managed through all the hypo prep we did. And she was there to help me through every contraction. Within minutes of getting to the hospital I had my new bundle of joy completely naturally without complications. I am really grateful for the support and care I experienced with Doula Belle. I don’t plan on having anymore but I would definitely recommend her a thousand times over.

      Belle Washington is a loving and kind person. She takes the time to connect with others to identify their needs and how she can help. She’s amazing.

      As a first time momma I had questions about EVERYTHING! I had no idea what to expect and Belle was very patient with me, answered all of my questions thoughtfully and educated me and dad on childbirth and postpartum care. I felt at ease when it was time to deliver and once baby arrived Belle was available for the additional support I needed. I don’t think I could have another kid without her
