"I not only had a sucessful VBAC because of their awesome service...I am also a better mother to my children because I know them. If you are in Virginia, you could not make a better choice than to have them as your doulas."
"She remained SO sweet and supportive, telling me my different options and helping me make a decision without pushing me in any one direction. I was afraid that if I ended up needing an epidural, I would feel like a failure, but she was so reassuring and helped me see that was not the case. As it turned out, once I had the epidural, labor started up again and the baby was born very soon!"
"If I had known back then what I know now, I would have had her at each one of our deliveries. Not only is her knowledge of birth impressive, her LOVE of birth is even more incredible!"
"She exudes a gentle grace that brought me so much peace amidst my overwhelming doubts and fears surrounding my third birth, a VBA2C."
"After a long series of events, I ended up delivering via c-section...having her there brought a tremendous amount of peace to me...& we will forever be grateful for her presence at our son's birth."
The research is definitive: professional doula support improves outcomes for mothers and their babies, and increases satisfaction with the experience of birth. While any constant support will provide benefits, our wisdom and dedication is a rare find, a particular advantage to those seeking a calm and confident birth.
