Wiggle Worms Children’s Hair Studio
“They are OUTSTANDING! My son loves Marisa and she is so so so good with him. He had a bad experience at his previous barbershop, but Marisa worked with him to get him comfortable enough to get his hair cute again. He just hops up in whatever vehicle he picks not and lets her do his hair. He’s only 4 and used to stress about haircuts, but now he actually asks to go.”– Alyssa L.

2023 LOVE AWARD WINNER: BEST DEVELOPMENTAL SERVICES
“We have worked with Expansion Speech Therapy since June 2022 and could not be happier. They are an incredible team of therapists. From my initial call discussing my son, I knew we were in the right hands. She was caring, understanding, and made me feel that we would be able to work as a team to help my son with his speech needs. Her passion to develop a relationship with my son was apparent from the moment they met. She knows his interests, uses them to make their sessions entertaining and he truly cannot wait until she comes each week. In addition to the amazing rapport with our son, she is an expert in her field. She has an expansive knowledge base of speech difficulties and multiple strategies to target each specific skill. Not only is her rapport and knowledge base impressive, their customer service is a 10/10. Communication is clear and concise. We love expansion speech and have been so incredibly pleased with our son’s continued progress! “– Emily S.

Britt from Birth & Co is someone expecting mothers need on their team. She’s knowledgeable, strong, understanding, and above all she’s the best advocate to have when you enter the unknowns of childbirth. This woman is amazing and selfless, I know first hand because she gave up her Thanksgiving with her kids and husband to be with me in the hospital when I gave birth to my first child. She deserves to be recognized!”– Casey B.

Bronwyn is very friendly and like a ray of sunshine! We are very grateful for her help!“– Jill L.
2023 LOVE AWARD WINNER: BEST MATERNAL MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES
‘Heather has been instrumental in helping me develop a supplement strategy for my family. Navigating what supplements to take an be overwhelming, especially when there is so much conflicting information. In addition, my 9-year old son developed some tics and Heather was able to develop a plan to help support his brain health. Her bedside manner is calm, level, and kind. I feel like she really listens to understand and not to respond. Heather’s science-based, whole health approach is comforting and reassuring. She also has incredible handcrafted tinctures for all types of issues and wellness goals, as well as sound and light therapy (a real treat!).”– Meredith L.

Through my entire child’s smile improvement process, they have been kind, patient and have thoroughly gone through all the instructions and next steps in the process. They were there to answer any concerns I might have and put my child at ease with any of her worries. Dr. Welsh and his team are amazing and I can’t wait to see my child’s beautiful smile at the end of it all.“– Margot B.
2023 LOVE AWARD WINNER: BEST PELVIC HEALTH THERAPY
“A woman’s body is completely AMAZING and I think we can all agree with that! We make humans, birth them and feed them! Our bodies go through soo much and you don’t even realize what all of it actually is doing to your pelvic floor. And most woman go through life thinking it’s completely normal to have issues down there and don’t seek help. Recently I have been seeing a pelvic floor therapist to resolve some issues and to prepare better for giving birth to my little guy soon. I’ve learned SOOO MUCH from Danika! She makes you feel completely comfortable. Going through breathing techniques, body positioning, and the exam I felt like I was finally doing something to change my body that I didn’t even know I had the power to do! I urge anyone with any of the issues listed in the photo below to reach out to her. Also, if you are early on in your pregnancy you can learn a ton of great things to help against pain and discomfort towards the end of pregnancy. Do I wish I did this 5 years ago? Yes!“– Christina K.
2023 LOVE AWARD WINNER: BEST PERSONAL TRAINER
The Strong Mom Project
“Krista is sincere, passionate, and helpful when it comes to returning to exercise postpartum. She is a fantastic resource for this community to have and if you’re considering working out with her- do it! And if it isn’t something you’re considering right now, go to one of her free community meetups. You will not feel any pressure, just go, have fun & make some great new friends. The sense of community that the Strong Mom Project strives to achieve isn’t a gimmick, it’s very genuine and I’m thankful to have participated in the Core & Floor Restore program.“– Colleen M.
2023 LOVE AWARD WINNER: BEST SLEEP CONSULTANT
“I can’t say enough awesome words to describe working with Jen. She is amazing!! I was dealing with 3 months of no sleep and fighting with my toddler to get back to bed due to some separation anxiety. It felt like a nightmare! Thankfully I found Jen and she has changed my life! I went from a non sleeping mom with anxiety going to bed knowing my child would be awaking up to being able to sleep great through the night since my toddler does! Jen is very knowledgeable about children’s sleep patterns and more, she is very easy to work and communicate with and makes the whole process very easy as well. I felt like she really listened to my situation and was able to help and tweet the process as we went on day by day and week by week. From there my daughter started sleeping through the night by week two out of the four week program and has been staying strong since! I can’t say enough other than if you need help doesn’t hesitate to call you wont regret it!“– Kelly O.
