I absolutely loved my birth experience with Verda as my doula! It was my 3rd birth and even though I felt prepared as far as what to expect, I wanted to add another dimension to my birth experience and choosing to have a doula really enriched the whole experience for me. Verda provided my husband and I with new birthing techniques that helped us stay focused on our goals and really encouraged us to work together as a team. She has a very calming presence that made working with her easy and enjoyable. Her passion for encouraging and empowering moms to have positive birthing experiences was evident throughout all of our interactions. She was always focused on providing us with the best experience possible and did an amazing job of communicating with us and interacting with the nurses, doctors and family members to ensure that we stayed on track with our birth plan. Verda was extremely helpful post birth as well. Her extensive knowledge of breastfeeding and postpartum needs is very valuable to a mom welcoming a little one. I highly recommend using Verda as your doula!
