Here is what a client named Gina Silva Guimaraes has to say about working with Brittney:
My husband and I had the pleasure of having Brittney Kildare as our doula, and we couldn't be more grateful with the experience. Brittney was not only incredibly responsive throughout the entire process, promptly answering our questions and addressing our concerns, but also showed a deep level of care and compassion. Her ability to read the room and understand our needs added an extra layer of comfort and reassurance. Brittney’s availability and willingness to provide guidance at any time, combined with her genuine caring nature, truly made us feel supported and valued. I highly recommend Brittney to anyone seeking a doula who is not only knowledgeable and skilled, but also exceptionally responsive, genuinely caring, and attuned to the needs of her clients.
Here is what a client named Andrei Shutovich has to say about working with Anna:
My wife gave birth in a hospital a few weeks ago, and Ania was our birth doula. Despite long (~26 hours) and intense labor, with lots of unexpected twists, the end result was a healthy baby, plus we managed to avoid a C-section, so my wife's recovery wasn't too bad. In retrospect, we couldn't have achieved that if not for Ania's help and advice.
Before the delivery, we had a few in person meetings with Ania, where she learned our preferences and suggested her approach to preparing for the process, without insisting on us following every detail. We also watched videos of a few births. Thanks to those meetings, we were better prepared for the delivery and post-partum.
During the delivery, we woke Ania up in the middle of the night (as the contractions started at 2 AM), and she joined us in the hospital an hour later. She was with us all the time until we left the delivery room in about 30 hours. She had hardly slept during this time, her attention was always on my wife. She went above and beyond to make her as comfortable as possible. Also, she was focusing on how to make the contractions more effective via different positions, and how to speed up the delivery by various non-medical means.
Ania also consulted us on every decision we took, supported every choice we made, and, at one point, she even defended our interests (although she didn't sign up for this). Her advices were always motivated by the needs of my wife and our baby.
After the birth, she visited us a few times, and was always ready to answer our questions by phone (we called her every time we didn't know what to do). Given that my wife and I have no relatives who live close by, we're very grateful for that help.
I believe that being a doula is not just Ania's job, it is her vocation. Her ability to build trust and to establish a deep and personal connection is extraordinary, and I'm certain she puts her heart and soul in every birth she assists.
Here is what a client named Julia Tazelaar has to say about working with Cait:
From the first time I talked with Cait over Zoom, I felt a connection with her. She was knowledgeable, easy to talk to, and she even encouraged me to interview other doulas because her number one concern was making sure that I had the right person supporting me. After that initial conversation and reading her story on her website, I knew Cait was the right person to help guide me and my husband through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. At our two in person prenatal meetings Cait provided vital information and asked a lot of questions to understand what kind of support my husband and I needed. She also answered many, many questions over text, never making me feel like I was being silly or worrying too much. When I went into labor, Cait came to our house as soon as I asked her to. Throughout the next 36+ hours she gave constant help, guidance, and reassurance as I worked to bring my son into the world. In this postpartum period, she has continued to be a rock for me. When I was struggling in the first few days home with an infant, she came and reassured me that everything would be okay. She has answered even more texts with all kinds of questions, at all hours of the day and night. She has been my biggest supporter and cheerleader, helping me find my confidence as a new mom. If you are looking for someone who will give you all the evidence based information you could ask for, who will look at pictures of your baby's poop and tell you it's normal, and who can be your strong advocate in a medical setting, I urge you to talk with Cait to see if she is a good match for you.
