I cannot say enough good things about Teresa! She was amazingly knowledgeable, supportive, kind and full of helpful tips about birthing and taking care of babies. I did not have an easy birth experience (39.5 hours in labor ended in a cesarean) and I couldn't have done it without her. We followed my birth plan to the best of our abilities, she made sure I was aware of all my options at any given moment, and she kept me as comfortable as possible. I can honestly say I don't regret anything about my birthing experience and hiring her was the best decision ever. As first time parents we had no idea what to expect and we were nervous. Having a doula like Teresa help us through the process seriously calmed our nerves and helped us to be confident in the decisions we made along the way. If you are thinking of hiring a doula, this one is awesome!
I am so grateful for Teresa and the support, encouragement, and guidance she provided during my labor. My baby was arriving prematurely and my husband and I were nervous. Teresa took the time to get to know us and helped make our delivery experience feel personal. She coached me with patience, understanding, and always made me feel comfortable asking questions. I highly recommend her services and will definitely be hiring Teresa for delivieres in the future. Thank you, Terri!
Terri was a huge support during my labor and delivery! I pushed for two hours and Terri was by my side every second helping to make me more comfortable. We originally decided to use a doula because my husband and I were unable to attend the birth classes. Additionally, my husband was worried he wouldn't know how to support me in the moment. Terri was there and was able to support me while also helping my husband support me. Terri stayed with us for several hours afterwards while my son was in the NICU and then helped me nurse him for the first time when he was released. She even visited us the next day!
Terry was phenomenal! She has a very calm demeanor which makes you feel at ease throughout labor and delivery. She made the whole day easier and less stressful. I would recommend her to anyone interested in using a doula.
The perfect match for our son's birth! She was kind, attentive and positive - she also had great relationships with the hospital staff, which was reassuring. We had great conversation while labor progressed, which was exactly what I needed to keep me relaxed and not staring at the clock. Overall, we are so happy she was part of our birthing experience! Thank you!
She was attentive, warm, friendly, and made my very intense labor manageable. I recommend her!!
Teresa was amazing! I had planned to use the same doula that I had worked with when my son was born but unfortunately she came down sick the night I went into labor. Teresa was the recommended replacement and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Friendly and proactive, she really listened to how I was feeling and how I hoped delivery would go. Admitted at 1am, my daughter arrived just before 8am via all natural delivery.
If you are wondering whether a doula is the right choice, here are a few things to consider. Every delivery of is different. My 1st was ROUGH but my 2nd was a breeze. Doulas know the hospital staff, where stuff is and can help provide additional information and guidance if things don't go "according to plan". It also provided company while my spouse got some rest and a variety of suggestions of how to work through contractions I wouldn't have thought of.
5 star 200% recommendation for Teresa from this happy mama!
I had such a positive birth experience working with Teresa. She was extremely attentive to my needs during labor and very knowledgeable, which made the overall experience as calming as possible. I felt like I was able to be very present in the moment, and she was a wonderful advocate as well.
Fantastic. She was great, really helped my wife, made her as comfortable as possible. Knew things to try that I never would have thought of or known about. I highly reccomend Teresa (and having a Doula in general).
