I had the pleasure of working with Johnetta as my Doula to birth my second child. It was very important to me this go round to have a supportive team to increase my chances of having a vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC). I can honestly say that even through a pandemic, the level of support and care received surpassed my expectations. Johnetta went above and behind on the resources provided and check ins. Although the corona virus changed the way we could interact during labor and delivery, we still were able to connect virtually and she offered to come to the house to assist in laboring at home. I wholeheartedly believe that the support Johnetta provided my husband and I prior to delivery helped us to feel confident and knowledgeable about owing our birth experience and what we should expect. We were able to achieve the VBAC we desired and I would like to think our decision to hire Johnetta as our Doula aided in that. I would highly recommend Mother of Many Doula Services to any expectant mom who desires to take control of their birth plan and team while being supported by a qualified and caring professional.
My husband and I highly recommend Johnetta. She was truly a God send in our birth journey. She's down to earth, answered all of our questions and concerns and above all nurturing.I went in thinking I knew a lot and that I wanted her there more to support my husband but everything I thought I knew she clarified and even suggested or mentioned aspects that I had no idea existed or knew I needed.
Johnetta was there every step of the way not only giving me advice but my husband as well. She was always available for us and when the time came she was right there helping and encouraging me every step of the way going above and beyond. I enjoyed her personality and the knowledge that she brought forth not only as a doula but as a mother herself.
She suggested and used great resources that were useful. I'm grateful to have found her for the birth of our daughter. She even took pictures for us during birth. Wthout her quick thinking I wouldn't have any of those moments to look back on.
So if you are looking for a dependable, soothing and knowledgeable supporter of the birth process she's the one to go to. Thank you so much Johnetta for your continued support, kindness and friendship!
Johnetta was a godsend for my husband and I. She was kind and compassionate from the start of our journey. She provided us with valuable information and resources. She is very passionate about working and helping mothers and their partners during their pregnancy and birth experiences. In my experience as a first time mom, I do not think we would have had a positive laboring experience if it were not for her help, guidance, and support. She kept my husband and I focused and encouraged us to work together as a team. I highly reccomend you hire her as your doula, I promise you will NOT be disappointed!!!
Johnetta was amazing from the moment we connected until well after I gave birth. Her attention to detail to include my emotional well being and wishes for how I wanted my labor and delivery to go was unmatched. She provided excellent mental support to myself and my family and ensured that everyone knew what was going on and was comfortable. There were plenty of times throughout my journey when I thought I wasn’t going to make it (literally), but Johnetta’s calm spirit and guiding energy was everything that I needed to successfully birth my son. She made sure she was in tune with me, from beginning to end. I highly recommend her to all looking for a doula. Thank you again, Johnetta! I couldn’t have done it without you ????
Johnetta was my doula for the birth of my first child in late July 2019. She was awesome and I highly recommend her. I would definitely hire her again! She was always available and willing to chat before the birth- sending me helpful resources and tips and offering advice when we chatted on the phone. I hired her only a few weeks before the birth because my other doula fell through, and she was great and constantly checked in.
She was a lifesaver during my birth at GW hospital. She met us there at 2am immediately after we called her. I was having a tough time, and she immediately offered relief with back massages and position ideas and suggestions. She also had some doula tool that she would roll over my back that helped me relax. She stayed with me in the hospital over my entire, very long labor, well into the next night, and she was extremely helpful. My husband was also very relieved she was there, because even though we had read books and taken classes she knew instantly what to do and could show my husband as well, so they could switch off giving me massages, etc. She also comforted my mom who was having a tough time watch me labor.
My birth didn’t go exactly as planned, I had some complications, but Johnetta was absolutely terrific through the entire process and helped explain what the doctors were saying and really offered a lot of relief as I was laboring. I felt like she was there for me, and supported my choices during the entire process.
