Brittany was my doula at the birth of our daughter, and our birth truly wouldn't have been what it was without her. She was an excellent source of knowledge beforehand, and was such a great support during the birth. She helped me breath through contractions, and was a calming presence, even for my husband, which he really appreciated! I would (and have!) highly recommend Brittany to anyone looking for a doula.
We had the pleasure of having Brittany as our doula. Brittany is incredibly knowledgeable, and anything that she didn't know outright, she investigated to the best of her ability to give us answers. She is a fantastic resource for all things pregnancy, birth, and parenting; she offered all information available so that my husband and I could make our own decisions. Even aside from the actual birth, she was an invaluable part of our team simply as a resource.
Regarding the birth, I cannot imagine getting through birth without her. A doula is a wonderful addition to any birth team, but the RIGHT doula is essential. Brittany's calming presence was so helpful, and her skills made all of the difference. When we got to the birth center, our baby was OP, but Brittany used a variety of tricks and position changes to help us turn him back to LOA.
This was our first birth, and as educated as we were from a our own research and our comprehensive birth class, Brittany still brought much more to the table. She was the perfect addition to our team, and we are so happy we found her and hired her. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone who is looking to make their birth experience better in a multitude of ways.
I had a wonderful birth experience and Brittany was a big part of that! I could not be more pleased with how things turned out. This was my first child and I was nervous that I would forget what to do when I went into labor. Brittany gave me great peace of mind, even before I went into labor. She was always willing to answer questions or address worries I had. When I went into labor it was really nice to have someone I knew on the way, since we didn't know who our midwife or nurse would be. She was a great support during labor and knew exactly what to do to make me more comfortable during contractions! I was so glad she was there! It really helped my husband as well as he was worried about being able to support me during labor. The labor and delivery went really well and I am so pleased with the experience! Since the baby has been born Brittany has been great about answering my breastfeeding questions and concerns. I would definitely recommend Brittany to anyone that is looking for a doula!!
Brittany was my doula with my daughter who was born in March of 2012. She was a great resource for both my husband and me. She provided literature and suggestions when we had questions during my pregnancy. Brittany also made sure we met and felt comfortable with her back-up in the unlikely event that she was unavailable for the birth.
I had a long labor, which Brittany helped me through. I know my husband was glad to have her there to help him figure out the best support for me as my mood and comfort levels changed. Brittany also built up a great rapport with the medical staff treating me. This was especially important since I really wanted to avoid a c-section and she was an additional advocate of my behalf. She was familiar with the birthing process and procedures, so she was able to communicate with the medical staff and help us understand what was going on.
Brittany also went above and beyond to capture some very special photos of our new family right after the birth. In addition, I was very emotional after the delivery because of an additional procedure I had to have done, and Brittany was there to calm me down. Even after we were home Brittany followed-up with us and continued to provide support.
Brittany was an incredible doula for my unmedicated birth of my first child, Lola Jane. She went above and beyond what was expected of her by not only being an amazing doula, but she was and still is a great friend. I met Brittany for the first time and I just knew I wanted her to be a part of this experience. My husband and mother were both equally impressed by her. Before the birth she was attentive and informative. During the birth she was amazingly helpful. She helped eliminate and ease much of my pain that I was having. The valuable knowledge that she brought to our experience was impressive. I definitely don't want to imagine what birth would have been like had she not been there. Even after birth, she was supportive and helpful with post partum tips including lactation advice. All around my husband and I would give Brittany Pietrzak a 100%, five star review.
