" I am writing to unequivocally recommend Edna Childres as Baby Doula. Edna came to my family when my daughter, Hazel, was almost one month old. She was colicky, and would cry continually from late afternoon into the late evening. After my husband and I tried everything unsuccessfully to calm her, Edna was finally able to within minutes of meeting our little one. Edna stayed with us for several months until Hazel’s colick passed, always doing a wonderful job at soothing and nurturing our baby. A few weeks after joining us, I began leaving both Hazel and my toddler with Edna, so I could get out of the house. It was a great comfort knowing I was leaving my children in competent and trustworthy hands. Any family would be fortunate to have Edna as their caregiver. "
" Edna worked for me for 4 months as a Postpartum Doula/Newborn Specialist at night. As soon as I came home from the hospital she came over and helped. She was referred to me by my OB/GYN who had used her with his own babies. She made everything fall in place. She worked from 8pm-8am 6 nights a week and was willing to coming in if needed at any time. She was a pleasure to have in our home. She would feed and bath my babies at night and get them to sleep. She was always on top of everything. Edna would make sure the babies were well cared for through the night. Edna would make sure the babies were dry and clean along with their beds. She always had their nursery stocked and maintained with supplies for the next day. I would get up in the morning and all the bottles were sterilized and prepared for the next day. She made our lives easy. I was sad to see her time with us come to an end. Edna got the babies to sleep for 5 to 6 hour at night which gave us some much needed sleep. I still call upon Edna to watch my babies from time to time. I would recommend her to anyone.
" My wife and I feel fortunate to have found Edna. She truly saved the day by helping my wife and me sleep through the night during our difficult and challenging “baby with colic” experience. Edna took very good care of our little boy and he seemed to feel at ease in her presence. I learned some very useful tips for caring for an infant from Edna, who is a naturally gifted doula with a wealth of knowledge and experience. Thanks in large part to Edna, our family now sleeps through the night. "
" We had a wonderful experience working with Edna Childres. We initially hired her for overnight relief with our colicky 5-week old son. When Edna first came to our house, Ryan was crying in pain and discomfort off and on all day long and would only sleep for extended periods of time while lying on another body. After just one night, Edna had Ryan sleeping in his crib, waking up only once or twice a night. When I started taking over a night or two, I could tell that Ryan was totally set in a routine and was very comfortable sleeping in his bed.
" I used Edna for my twins last year for about 3 months. She worked from 10pm to 8am four nights a week. Edna was really good with the boys. She would feed them, get them back to sleep and make sure the were all ways clean and dry. Edna would do the boys wash and make the bottles for the next day. The boys room were always clean and well stalked for the next day. The boys really enjoyed Edna and we still have her watch all 3 of my children. I wish I would of known her and was able to use her with my first child. She made my life easier. "
" I am writing on behalf of Edna Childres. Edna has been nannying for our family for almost two months now and has been helping out primarily with our newborn daughter, born at the end of October of 2008. Our daughter has relatively mild (“relative” is the operative word—she still cries a lot!) colic and reflux, particularly in the evenings, and Edna has helped us in the evenings dealing with this less-than-fun situation. We have an older daughter (almost 2 years old), with whom Edna also helps from time to time.
Edna came into our family when our newborn was 2 months old. We feel so blessed to have had Edna come into our lives. This was truly one of the most difficult times we have had. Our son has reflux and colic and would not sleep for us. We tried pretty much everything that we could think of and nothing would help soothe our child. The day we met Edna she got our son to sleep within minutes of holding him. She could read our child so well and figured out exactly what worked for him within the first day of meeting him! She is amazing!
