Venette is incredible! I had a very long early labor that really tested my limits. Her support was crucial to my spouse and I throughout our time at home, being sent home from the hospital (twice), and through the long-awaited active labor and delivery process. She was there when I needed her, both remotely and in-person, to provide timely encouragement, new pain control ideas, and wise advice and reminders. The hospital staff remarked to me multiple times how impressed they were by Venette and they really respected her input as part of my team. Venette respected my wishes and helped me communicate them to the rest of the staff caring for me too. I am so thankful that I had Venette supporting my partner and I through the birth of my daughter! 



I had a wonderful experience with Venette as my doula!  It was my first attempt at a natural birth after a C-section.  She was so caring and kind.  She educated me on how to prepare for labor and how to have an empowered birth experience at the hospital.  Venette checked in constantly when I was starting to show signs of labor, and she worked tirelessly to provide physical support in terms of positional changes, nourishment, and emotional support during a labor lasting more than 20 hrs at the hospital.  I highly recommend Venette as a doula!

My husband and I had the best experience with Venette! She was so attentive and compassionate throughout the entire journey. We had a very complicated pregnancy and birth. It was very far from what we thought our first experience would be like and it was certainly not how I would have ever wanted it. Venette made sure I felt comfortable and in control while we adapted to so many challenges. She helped me cope with the emotional side of things and helped me understand what was happening in labor and delivery when things got hard. She was there for me every step of the way and long after birth. Venette is a beautiful person and a fantastic doula!

I had an amazing experience with Venette as my doula. I was focused on having a physiological birth with minimal medical interventions and she was able to provide me with exactly the type of support I needed. I contacted her just a few weeks before giving birth and she was willing to work with me. She was very knowledgeable about the birthing process and was able to provide me with the emotional and physical support that I needed throughout my labor (and in the weeks leading up to the birth). 

After I gave birth, she continued to provide me with support during my postpartum period. She checked in on me regularly and provided me with resources and information that helped me navigate the challenges of early motherhood. Her communication skills were excellent and I always felt like I could reach out to her if I needed anything.

I would highly recommend Venette to anyone who is looking for a doula.
