Valerie came to our family at great timing. 4 weeks before delivery, when most things got to go around the pregnancy and delivery. I was looking for a support person that would care for my birth plan and for me and my husband's well being. Valerie did that with care, a smile on her face, a mindful presence when with us and with excellent bedside manner.
She engaged with my mom and toddler, making them feel valued as well. She was available for contact and was prompt when called for my overnight hospital vaginal birth. She came to my prenatal appointment as well.
I had back labor and needed A LOT of back massage / pressure and she was great at it! She cared to be near, to keep me hydrated and to take pictures when appropriate. She was devoted to have me mobile and that helped with my labor progress.
We had an excellent birthing experience and I am happy we had Valerie as our doula! Thank you.
