We had an excellent experience working with Zoey for the birth of our third child. We had a difficult labor with our first child and had a doula for our second. We found Zoey on doulamatch when I was 7 weeks preganant and are so grateful we did. Her and I texted throughout my pregnancy. I kept her in the loop on how everything was going. She was always very quick to respond. If I had any questions for her she always had answers. She came to our house for the 2 prenatal visits and she was very prepared. She helped me create a birthing plan and brought ideas that I hadn't previously considered. When my husband and I had hospital visits Zoey helped me think of questions that were pertinent to my labor. My doctor began to push for induction and Zoey gave me natural ideas for inducting labor on my own. The night I went into labor I called Zoey and she met us at the hospital. She spent about 22 hours with us and was absolutely amazing. She made me feel as comfortable as possible by bringing essential oils, helping massage my back, applying cool compresses to my forehead when needed, and encouraging me to change positions to find one that was more comfortable. Zoey was extremely supportive of me wanting to do a natural childbirth and she was very knowledgeable about how to help me. I found that with her present the nurses gave me the space I needed to labor without distrations. If we needed something in the room she would go talk to the nurses. Zoey was great at predicting what I needed when I needed it. She helped me focus on the current contraction and not look ahead and get discouraged. If I became discouraged she would motivate me to get through the current contraction before making any decisions. She also kept my husband from becoming worn out by encouraging him to drink water, eat, and gave him breaks that he wouldn't have wanted to take without her present. My husband and I definitely recommend Zoey for anyone who is in need of a doula.
Zoey was a lifesaver for us during the birth of our second child. I was looking for a sibling doula since we don’t have any family nearby and needed someone to care for our 5 year old son whenever I went into labor. It was important to find someone who understood the birth process, not just a nanny or a babysitter.
Zoey was great with our son and always responsive to us when we reached out before, during and after the birth of our daughter. She took him to preschool and kept his routine the same so that we could minimize the disruptions he was already going to experience with a new sibling. We are grateful that she was there during this stressful time and would recommend her to any of our friends.
