#TBT from when Doula Leslie Geick got to hold some babies!

Leslie usually focuses her amazing skills on getting babies OUT and into their parent's arms, so it's fun when she gets to actually love on the little ones!

Often we get calls asking how late is too late order placenta services - it's never too late until shortly after the placenta has arrived or longer if it has been on ice/refrigerated.

We call these last minute calls "drop ins" and we ❤ our drop ins. Call us on the red phone at 833-PLACNTA. No worries!

Also, I love how young I looked in this pic. Happy Thursday!

#TBT from nine years ago.

This family rocked a VBAC after switching to a more supportive provider toward the end of pregnancy. Changing providers to one that supports your birth goals can feel overwhelming, but it also can be so worth it!
