Doula client testimonials

When I first found out we were pregnant, as a first time Dad, I was nervous. I was a bit scared thinking about the process of labor. My wife and I met Virginia and knowledge quickly became our power. As a Husband, trust me, you want Virginia there for back up. I would recommend Virginia to anyone no matter what their birth plan! ~ M

I laughed when my daughter told me she had hired a doula. I thought it was the silliest thing I have ever heard. Now having seen what you do I don’t think anyone should have a baby without one! ~ Client’s Mother

We are expecting our second child and one of the first things I did when we found out was contact Virginia! She was such an integral part of the birth of our son that I cannot imagine going through the process without her. She was a strong support for both me and my husband. I would recommend choosing Virginia to ANY mom because her knowledge, experience, patience, and level of care is second to none. ~ E

I loved having a woman there to tell me she understood when I kept saying how hard it was. Virginia was with us at our house and stayed right by my side for the entire labor and recovery. She didn’t leave until after I had showered and settled in the bed to sleep. My labor experience was wonderful and life-changing thanks to our doula, Virginia, and my husband. ~ E

Virginia is kind, caring, and great at her job. Actually, “job” just isn’t the word to use. She treats you like a close member of the family, with love and concern, but has the knowledge that provides the experience you dreamed of. She is patient and understanding but will stand up for you in those moments you don’t have the strength to fight for yourself. ~ J

I didn’t think we needed a doula but during the birth of our daughter I was so glad and relieved that Virginia was present. She helped me, helped my wife in so many ways! Virginia really respects the moment between a husband and wife and she has the wonderful ability to mother the mother in just the right way and at the moment she needs it. My instincts are not that on cue! ~ G

Down to earth. Has been there a few times herself. Listens to your every word. Knows how to help you get comfortable. Knows when to step back. Nurses and doctors love her. If I had another baby she would be the first person I’d call. ~ J

Virginia moved around the room very quietly and spoke softly yet clearly. She was able to give what I needed before I ever had to ask. ~ A

I wish Virginia could have been at our first birth. The advice and comfort level she gave us was fantastic. ~ D

While expecting our twins, Virginia helped ease our fears of attempting a non surgical delivery. She not only supported me during my pregnancy, labor, recovery, & breastfeeding….but supported my husband, helping him cope with such a life changing event. I have never met anyone so calm and patient in my life!!!! Virginia is like family to us now. I will forever be grateful for her assistance in such an awesome moment in our lives. ~H

Virginia is a wonderful doula and an incredible human being. Most importantly, she is precisely the type of person you want at your side during and leading up to childbirth — she is knowledgeable, compassionate, and always available to listen to the mom/mom-to-be. ~ M

She assisted my husband and I prepare for and, then, welcome our second child.  She was a tremendous resource during the end of my pregnancy.  And, we felt so lucky to have her wise and calming presence during labor.  I had the good fortune to have the natural childbirth I so wanted with my son, and I do not think I could have done it without her!  After his birth, Virginia continued to be a huge help sorting out the inevitable kinks in the first weeks of breastfeeding. I cannot say enough good things about Virginia!  We felt so lucky to get to know her and have her invaluable help. ~ M

Breastfeeding Support testimonials

After the birth, I struggled to breastfeed successfully. My daughter was born on a Friday and had to be kept an extra day due to low weight and we had no lactation consultant at hand. She came at midnight and encouraged me while teaching me calmly what to do. She stood by my side while I had to pump because of pain and was my support when no one could be at the hospital with me. ~ M

Virginia has been such a wonderful support to me on my breastfeeding journey. In the beginning, she helped me get my sleepy son latched and gave me tips on how to wake him up for feedings. Even now, at 7 months PP, she makes herself available to me to address concerns I have about my and my son’s breastfeeding relationship. I am thankful for the knowledge I have gained from Virginia as it has enabled me to avoid some really bad breastfeeding advice! ~ A

Lamaze Healthy Birthing classes testimonials

I always left Virginia’s Lamaze classes feeling educated and empowered. She provided excellent visual resources and ample opportunities to practice comfort measures that helped ease the pain of labor. When my water broke at home, I felt calm and prepared because of the Lamaze healthy birth practices. Virginia’s class and doula support gave me the confidence to have the natural childbirth that I wanted. ~ M

Her birth class is also wonderful, she gives really clear information so that you feel fully informed about your options and about what might happen and creates space for you to process your emotions around your birth as well.~C

I found myself becoming knowledgeable about the natural process of birth and our rights as both patients and parents. She gave us tools to communicate respectfully our wants and wishes during pregnancy and at the hospital during labor and birth. ~ E
