Client Testimonials for Merav Minkin

Amy Barlow

Merav is a wonderful doula and person. In the months leading up to birth of my baby, Merav provided gentle encouragement and expertise. It's reassuring to speak with somebody who is not only very knowledgable about childbirth, but had specific information pertaining to doctors, nurses, and facilitates in Providence. During our many conversations with Merav, my husband and I learned about doula practices, birth plans, labor support, pain management, hospital protocol, and countless other topics. We also learned about each other and borrowed materials from Merav's personal library (super helpful books and documentaries!). When I went into labor, I felt confident in my decisions because of the education and support I received from Merav. We spoke and texted throughout the day until I made the decision to go to the hospital. Once there, she worked in concert with my husband, the labor and delivery nurse, and the doctor to guide me through the final and most incredible stage of labor: pushing! I will always be grateful for Merav's presence during my son's birth and for her admiration of him in the days that followed.
