Hi Jazmine, Thank you for taking time to give honest feedback. I'm deeply sorry to hear that your experience was not what you hoped. During our prenatal experiences I stressed the importance of you telling me when something wasn't helping you. There were a few times when your mother and the baby's father suggested I leave, but I wasn't hearing it from you so I didn't know it was what you wanted. While I was waiting outside during the epidural, your baby's father told me"my services were no longer needed", it sounded like he wasn't clear on the role of a doula to support, epidural or not. When I came in to double check with you, I felt I needed to let you know that I'd support you through the whole thing if that was what you want. I asked if you wanted me to stay, and you said yes. I gave ideas for position changes, comfort measures, asking before doing anything. Your mother did ask me to let you and the father be alone during pushing. I told her my role was to be here for my client throughout the experience so long as that's what she wanted. When asked you said yes, so I stayed. I knew you didn't want pictures, but when your mom was trying to get pics of baby I asked her if she wanted me to take them so she be in the moment. She said yes, so I took some and texted them to her. I deleted the pics from my phone, but I should've used her phone.The night before the pp I texted to confirm, you told me that you lost your phone charger so you might not respond to texts the next day. When I arrived, a man answered the door. He told me you were sick anddidn't need a visit. I was flustered because I wasn't hearing this from you. At this point I was worried and knew your phone was dead, which is why I reached out on fb. I wanted you to know I was there if you needed to process the birth or talk. If you had told me you didn't want a pp visit I wouldn't have messaged. Again, I am so sorry that your birth experience wasn't what you hoped for. I wish you the best.

My experience with Doula MaryRose Nelson wasnt what I expected at all.  During our two meetings before  I went into labor she was very kind and answered any questions I may have had.  She had even said that a doula isnt there to take the position  of the birth partner away. But the day I was in labor she was very in my face and did not encourage  my birth partner  in anyway  but instead she was on top and in the way. My mom & birth partner  couldn't  do anything to help except  hold onto my foot bc she wouldn't allow them to. Eventually she was asked 4 times to leave by me, my mother, the drs and the babys father and yet she was very insistent  and would NOT leave. We had even had the money ready to pay her so she could leave but still insisted. When I was pushing she started to take all these pictures  before  and after when I specifically  said NO.  I would  not recommend  MaryRose Nelson to any mothers expecting a child.  I didnt even want to meet for a postpartum visit so when she came that day my father opened the door and gave her the money bc I wasnt feeling well at all and that led her for her services.I had gotten rid of her on social media so she would  not contact me on anyway. But then she went out of her way to search for me through her personal  FB acct to still insist on coming for the postpartum  visit even after we paid her and thanked her.  Im sorry but  I really DO NOT recommend  MaryRose Nelson If you're looking for a Doula.
