Where do I begin…? I’ll start by saying it is no exaggeration when I testify that R. was a god-send. This young woman knows what she’s doing. She was caring, attentive and offered professional, loving and experienced support before, during and after birth. I am eternally grateful to her and will be utilizing her post-pregnancy services. Thank you R. for being a part of the journey of this chapter of my life.
R. was an exceptional doula. She educated me before birth and after birth. I loved that we kept up with our appointments. Before birth she helped educate me and really helped me think of how I imagine my labor and postpartum. During labor she was wonderful with helping me breath through the contractions, doing movements and exercises that comfort me. Even after labor and I had an C-section, R. helped me get my milk supply going so I can breastfeed. Even after birth she followed up with me and made sure me and baby is okay. R. overall is an excellent doula and person! She made my birth experience rememberable & I’m happy I had her as doula!
We had the best experience with R. as our doula! From our initial consultation, we felt like she would be a perfect fit for us. We immediately felt very comfortable with her and it was as if we had known each other already even though we had just met. Her experience as a doula and with lactation consultation made us feel very secure in our birth plan choices. I ended up delivering earlier than expected and she was there each step of the way to support me as I mostly labored at home and then was vital in helping me to get my daughter to latch in the golden hour after her birth. She was also very supportive during our post partum visit and allowed my husband and I to get a good nap in while she helped watch over my daughter. I would recommend her to anyone and if I have another pregnancy I would love to work with her again!
R. was most helpful in regards to providing questions I could ask my MDs, especially when complications occurred. I also found her tips for flipping a baby helpful. Finally, R.’s session on pain management was new information for me and extremely useful. During my birth, I was induced for a brief period of time and had to quickly move to a C-Section so much of what I learned with R. wasn’t able to be used. However, if you want to feel informed and have someone if you do go into labor and delivery vaginally, I recommend R. based on the education I received from her.
R. has been working with us as a postpartum doula, spending evenings with us and overnights with our newborn. From the moment she walked in the door, I knew we would all be in great hands. As someone who has struggled both physically and emotionally with breastfeeding, R. has been a great support; she’s provided resources and helpful advice, but more importantly, has made me feel like no matter what I do, I’m a good mom. During this stressful postpartum period, having that feedback is invaluable.
At every visit, she makes it a point to review how our day went, and always has helpful advice for the challenges and “unknowns” of new parenthood. Her positive attitude is also such a breath of fresh air!
R. is absolutely wonderful with our daughter and a calming presence in our home. We’re able to get a full night of sleep, and a full report from R. the next morning on the night with our daughter, who is always sleeping peacefully and ready to feed at the exact time R. predicted she would be.
I could not recommend R. highly enough! We didn’t know what to expect with a doula, but all of our expectations have been exceeded by a long shot!
