My husband and I decided to have a doula because we wanted to be sure to have someone to represent our interests in the delivery room and a familiar face to guide us through the birthing process. We hired Bre because of her calm and friendly presence. Through the end of my pregnancy, Bre made sure we understood medical procedures and terms and made sure we understood all the options available to us. When I went into labor, I was happy to have Bre come and labor with me at home. She observed my labor and timed her suggestion to go to the hospital perfectly. While there, Bre supported me in labor with her whole mind and body, and I never felt unattended. My birth experience was pretty much everything I wanted, and Bre's presence contributed greatly to that. My husband and I are so happy we hired her, and would definitely recommend her to anyone.
Bre was such an integral aspect of my labor and delivery going well. I can't say enough about her. She was very generous with her time before and after the birth, including in-person get togethers as well as staying connected by text. During the birth she attended to me exactly per my wishes. She's positive, knowledgable, and definitely a calming presence. We were so pleased we have had her do postpartem doula work many times. I would highly recommend her, and have to other friends already.
Bre was amazing to work with, right from the start. She helped us think through our birth preferences in the last weeks of my pregnancy which helped me feel much more prepared and empowered going into the birth. As my due date came and went, she checked in and provided support and suggestions - even walking around Green Lake with me! And at the birth, she was attentive, knowlegable, and supportive. My birth didn't go as planned (do they ever?) but having her there with me, reminding me of my options and physically helping me through each step of the journey helped make it a positive experience nonetheless. Post-partum, she has been so wonderful - checking in, helping with everything from baby care to cleaning up, and bringing resources and other help along the way. We had been on the fence about hiring a doula at first and I am so glad we decided to do it, and that Bre was the one to help us bring our little one into the world. I can't recommend her highly enough!
We hired Breana to be our doula about a week or so before our baby girl decided to come two weeks early!:). This meant that Breana had to jump in and support me during labor and birth after having known me and my husband for a very short time. That didn’t seem to matter. She was amazingly flexible and supportive and the best doula we could have asked for. Her presence during the birth process was extremely reassuring. She was calm and encouraging. She supported my husband in supporting me. She helped me stick to my birth plan of an un medicated vaginal birth by using pain relieving techniques and helping me breathe and focus through each contraction. And when it came time for baby to be born, I swear she helped usher her out rubbing my belly and offering soothing words to my baby girl.
We have also appreciated Breana’s post partum care. I had no idea recovery would be so long and difficult, but she gave me lots of tips and advice to take care of myself while also taking care of my baby during our post partum meetings. I thank Breana for helping my family come to fruition! She will always be one of the most positive parts of the journey to parenthood.
I love Bre! Where do I start?! Honestly, I’m so thankful to have Bre as my birth doula. She made my birth experience so amazing and unforgettable. She was the perfect doula to have by my side and I can’t imagine my birth playing out as perfect as it did if I had someone else. I had a natural water birth and it was my first baby. It was the hardest thing I had to do!! Bre was so patient and caring. She did everything I needed her to do and more. Her gentle presence and calm energy makes her the perfect doula. It’s like she has this gift that makes her know what you need or want without you even having to tell her. Cause when you’re going through that labor pain you don’t feel like talking or saying too much!! She just guesses it. I love how knowledgeable she is and you can tell she really cares about her work. She is really there for YOU during labor and delivery. And even after birth. If I have another baby in the future I will hope Bre can be my doula again! Definitely will ask her to be. I’ve been telling everybody I know to consider getting a doula because I can honestly say my birth was perfect. I recommend Bre.
