Seattle, WA Service range 10 miles I am happy to take a ferry to meet you for a prenatal or postpartum visit, but I only attend births in Seattle area hospitals where a ferry isn't required.
Peggy was my doula for both of my children (now 17 and 3). Having a doula helped me navigate two hospital births and post birth complications. As my doula, Peggy was present, re-assuring, and compassionate to my needs and emotions. Her presence allowed me to focus on my process, to find the strength to either speak up or just be, and to own my birth experience(s). Having a doula like Peggy is truly a blessing to the birth process. I highly recommend hiring Peggy Foerch to be your doula!
Peggy attended the birth of my son many years ago, and I don't know what we would have done without her.
My adventure started out nine days past my due date with waters breaking in the middle of the night. For reasons I won't go into here, there was some concern that I was in trouble, so Peggy met us at the hospital soon after we arrived. About 23 hours later, I had a very large, healthy boy in my arms, but there was a lot of drama getting to that happy moment, having to do with a minor but pesky medical problem I turned out to have (but didn't know about ahead of time).
Peggy had the stamina and patience of a saint. She was well prepared by knowing her stuff, knowing our preferences, and being ready to pivot on our birth plan as circumstances required. She was the ultimate nurturing badass that night, morning, day, night, morning! Would recommend her to anyone!
