Client Testimonials for Becky Ofrane

Emily

We had such a wonderful experience having Becky as our doula for our 2nd child's birth. Before the labor, she helped us focus on what was ahead, both the labor and the challenging early newborn phase, strategizing care for our toddler and mental preparedness.

During labor, she was essential, navigating an overcrowded hospital with no laboring rooms available. Becky was an amazing advocate, making sure I got the medical care I needed as soon as I needed it.

Finally, her support in the weeks that followed was extremely helpful. She helped me focus on creating an optimal nursing setup, talk through challenges, and figure out my and the baby's needs, taking care of each us in equal measure.

I highly recommend Becky for labor and post-labor doula services!

Becky is a birth mama to the fullest! She took care of me while I was awaiting active labor by providing me with comfort measures including broth & jello, a relaxing pre-birth music mix, warm smiles and hand holding. She also provided my husband with good company as I rested, helping to calm his first-time-dad-in-waiting nerves. Oh, and she even brightened up the hospital room with artwork made by her daughter! During active labor she was AMAZING, giving clear guidance about how to visualize pushing (something no one on the medical team provided), appropriate cheerleading that made me feel powerful and supported, and capturing photo evidence as requested. Becky will be there for you in whatever way you want and need. She is intuitive, insightful (having had two kids of her own), soothing and delightful. Have I said too much? I haven't said enough. I recommend Becky with all my heart!
