Brittany is a wonderful doula and we would highly recommend her to anyone. She has a lovely calm energy that was a perfect addition to our birth team. She was non-judgemental and supportive of our birth plan, at the same time reminding us to stay open and flexible when things didn't go to plan.
It helped that she knew a lot, not just about birth but also postpartum care and breastfeeding. She also had some great tips on parenting in general. And she makes a mean lactation cookie! We are so grateful to have had her as a part of our birth experience.
A friend’s doula referred me to Brittany and we connected over FaceTime. She was the 1st doula that I interviewed and I could immediately tell that she was a good fit. I liked that she had been a kindergarten teacher, that she calmly explained her role in the birthing process, and that she was very open to whatever birthing experience that the mom wanted.
Brittany knows a lot about pregnancy, the birthing process (vaginal and “belly births”) and postpartum care, especially breast feeding. Like most doulas, she is a believer in natural birth (as are we!), but she never pushed her agenda - only listened as we relayed information from our Obgyn as the pregnancy progressed.
She went above and beyond as my doula and attended a yoga for birth workshop with me when my partner was unexpectedly out of town.
In the end, my baby was breech so we never got to “labor” at home with Brittany. I know that she would have been a calm, solid, constant partner and would have supported my husband a lot in the process.
And, when we found out the baby was breech and a C-section was the plan, she spent one session talking us through all that she had experienced with C-sections, to assuage my fears and so there was no mystery on the day.Too, she came to my surgery prep and kept both my husband and I calm chatting and reassuring us as the medical procedures happened. Lastly, she was there when I came out of surgery and helped make sure the baby had a good latch. To this day, I have not had any breastfeeding issues and I attribute a lot of this to a great first latch thanks for Brittany.
I whole heartedly recommend Brittany as a doula and I hope if we have a second child vaginally, she will be there!
Brittany was an amazing resource for us. She is caring, calm, and provides lots of useful pre and post natal information. I initially wasn’t sure if using a doula was for me, because I am a very private person. When I had my first phone conversation with Brittany she said I could make her services my own. If I wanted her in the delivery room great, if I wanted her in the hallway sometimes to have a moment alone with my husband, she said no offense would be taken. At the end of my 2nd trimester I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. After my diagnosis I decided I wanted all of the expertise I could get. Brittany provided a sense of calm and support during the end of my pregnancy that I very much needed emotionally. At 39 weeks I was induced. During delivery Brittany was especially helpful as I was hooked up to many machines as part of my induction. If an alarm went off on a machine, she could help ease our nerves quickly with an explanation as to why before a nurse arrived. If we had questions on the induction process/next steps Brittany took her time to answer our questions in a calm manner that we could easily understand. She also reminded us that next steps that are not a medical emergency and are our choice. We did not always get that patience from the nurses or doctors in the hospital. 1-2 weeks post birth Brittany came to our home to talk about my delivery, give me lactation support, and make sure everyone was doing well. She also brought some delicious nettle and red raspberry tea to help with my recovery. I would highly recommend Brittany to any friend or family member! She is very professional, warm and has an amazing aura.
From my first moments speaking to Brittany on the phone, I knew right away there was something warm and inviting about her personality. It didn’t take me long to decide that she was the doula for me (and my husband!)
When Brittany came to our home to meet us to discuss what I wanted out of my birth journey, my initial thoughts of her were solidified. She was open to any thoughts and concerns I had, and what kinds of supports I thought I would need. Even when I didn’t know what exactly I wanted, she asked the right questions to guide my journey.
She carried with her this bag of magic tricks, birthing magic if you will... filled with items from scarves to different types of pressure balls to honey straws. Anything I could have wanted out of a doula, she was there to offer me.
Fast forward to my actual birth- turns out I didn’t wind up using much of that magical bag, but her presence was magical enough. My water broke at 1:50 in the morning, and her smiling face was at the hospital with me by 7 (after everything was confirmed). Things progressed fairly quickly, at least that’s how I’m remembering it, and she was there every moment for both me and my husband. That’s what’s so wonderful about a doula like Brittany, they’re not only supportive to the mom to be, but the partner too. She offered assurance to my husband when he needed it, and even empowered him to be my coach and cheerleader too.
My little boy was born at 12:54 in the afternoon, and from the moment Brittany arrived, until well after he was born, she was fully present in my journey. She quickly became a friend and a face I looked to for comfort. It takes a truly special kind of person to do what she does, and she makes it look so effortless that you know it’s a true passion for her. Brittany is one of a kind.
Brittany is both professional and nurturing.
She created a schedule to match our needs and gathered our food and care preferences in advance of baby's arrival.
She is very knowledgeable. From baby care to lactation advice she had answers, suggestions and additional resources ready to share during her visit and through email.
Plus, she is super thoughtful! she brought me homemade lactation cookies and nettle tea (both delicious!).
Not to mention, she brings a calm atmosphere to my home with her relaxed and easy going manor.
From the first moment of getting in touch with Brittany I FELT SAFE!!!
As I approached my labor Brittany became my Friend and Teacher, ready to jump in at any moment to give my physical and emotional support, explain options and truly give me confidence in my choices
In our meetings beforehand and during my labor, she helped me find the strength and confidence to successfully give birth to my son naturally, but prepared me for second and third possible case scenarios and discussed cases if things went a different direction! She was a nurturing and reassuring presence during a very intense experience of birthgiving and an incredible help postpartum!
It was so nice having her there to prepare my husband and support his needs as well throughout the prebirthing, labor and coming home experience . I couldn’t have asked for a better doula and when/if I have a second child, I won’t even hesitate to call Brittany up and have her help with that birth too.
Do not hesitate to reach out to Brittany - she has beautiful energy!
We found Brittany through a friend’s referral and I’m really glad she was there for us at the birth as well as for the prenatal and postpartum period. She is an amazing, reliable, calm and knowledgeable person. Served as a great resource all along. She didn’t mind going the extra mile when needed. She even helped research on hospital and birth center options available in Manhattan providing the kind of service that would best fit my birth plan. She helped to keep preparations on track and was a great emotional support as well. She kept it cool when I was laboring at home (and in the park) as well as when they wouldn’t let her in in the hospital at first - she calmly waited outside till we cleared up the situation. Our little new family is very greatful for having her on our birth team. I would highly recommend Brittany to anyone who is looking for a caring, knowledgeable doula, fully supporting all kinds of birth choices.
I had a wonderful experience with Brittany and would highly recommend her to anyone! She provided invaluable prenatal, delivery and postnatal support. Her expertise ranges from medial interventions to where to purchase the best nursing bras. In addition, she has a very nurturing and calming nature which helped to ease my anxiety throughout the process. She was super flexible and accomodating to our schedule, traveling to our apartment several nights and weekends. She is non-judgemental and was an incredible resource, and I can't imagine having gone through this process without her.
When my husband & I became pregnant, we were uncertain of weather or not a doula would be a welcome addition to our family. We researched the care doulas provide & realized one would add knowledge & calm to the experience of welcomeing a child. We received a recomendation to explore Carriage House Doulas and were overjoyed to meet Brittany Revo. She not only seemed knowledgemable but warm and relaxed. Over the course of the next few months, we met to develope a "Birth Plan" and get to know one another better. Not only did she answer every question that came up, she also provided resources to further our preparation. When the day came to meet our baby, I was induced and Brittany was at the ready. Although I never labored, having Brittany be a part of the hospital experience kept both my husband and I calm. Sharing the experience of meeting our daughter with Brittany felt natural & cozy. Since, we have kept in touch and I would very much recomend not only the experience of working with a doula but specifically working with Brittany Revo. She is a real lamb.
