Kai Doula Co. - Postpartum Doula Services - Greater Seattle Tacoma Area - Mary Hill, LICSW One thing about having a baby is that each step of the way you simply cannot imagine loving him any more than you already do, because are bursting with love, loving as much as you are humanly capable of - and then you do, you love him even more. (Anne Lamott)


"I appreciated that [Mary] had both understanding of the chaos of life with a newborn & so much knowledge to share that was helpful now & will be helpful in the future. I felt very comfortable expressing my fears & concerns of our situation & [Mary] addressed these issues in a caring & organized manner. And the best was the help for what we thought was a hopeless breastfeeding situation! If any moms are looking for a postpartum doula she has our highest recommendation." –C.C.

"Mary's patience & loving nature make her a natural around children. She understands child development, in my opinion, almost as second nature. I am a better parent because of Mary, not only because of the break I get when she is here but because of the way I have observed her interacting with my girls. I have learned a lot from her!" –M.M.

"Mary was very self-sufficient, figured out where we needed help and did it. And we really appreciated it! I would highly recommend Mary. She was so attuned to how exhausted we were with a new baby. She helped out so much with housework, breastfeeding, and gave us time for naps!" –C.G.

"Mary was very reliable and so much fun to work with. Our twin daughters loved her. Mary was so knowledgeable with newborns and taught us a lot! Yes!" –S.E.

"[Mary] took the time to have our two year old acclimate to her and look forward to her visits…She never made me feel like less of a mother even though I ran around in a sleep deprived stupor and half dressed. Mary really was great! You only had to tell her how to do something once and then it was done to perfection. She has a very nurturing presence and became part of our family." –B.W.

"I had a terrific experience with Mary—I'd love to recommend her. My main goal was not to "get behind"—with my health, my children, my house—after the birth of my third baby, and Mary TOTALLY made that possible. When she left I was sad but not overwhelmed with what I had to catch up on. I enjoyed having her and wish she could be here all the time." –J.S.

"Mary is wonderful with small children. She always is tuned in to [child]'s needs and he responds very well to her. I trust Mary!" –D.C.

"Mary is a baby whisperer. She was organized, low impact and took thorough, loving care of our babes. Exudes confidence in caring for twins." –G.E.

"Thanks so much for all you have done for us. The peace of mind you have brought us is priceless. You've allowed me to keep my sanity. Beyond that, you have been fantastic with the boys. I love how you interact with them. The spirit of your care will always stay with us." –J.C.

"Thank you so much, Mary, for your kindness and patient support. You have helped me go in the direction I was struggling so hard to find. I know I will be the parent I want to be now. Thank you! (As if Thank You is enough)." –C.E.
