Client Testimonials for Marilyn De Leon

Jessica Hartley

When I first found out I was pregnant with my second child, I just knew I had to get with doula. I desperately wanted a vbac and I was afraid that I would be pressured to get another c section. I never experienced labor before and was nervous about the whole process. Marilyn was there for every question and worry I had during pregnancy, no matter how small it was. She always responded in a timely manner. Having her at my side during labor and birth gave me the strength to attempt birth without medication. She is more than just a doula, she's a truly loving soul that will give her all to ease your every worry.

Marilyn is an amazing doula that I would recommend to any mamma. She is knowledgeable and passionate about what she does. I labored for 2+ days and she was there for me at all hours of the day and night, answering any questions I had and offering advice throughout. Once I was admitted into the hospital, Marilyn arrived and helped to keep me calm with essential oils and breathing techniques during my contractions that really helped me to stay focused. She held my hand and was able to explain options as they were presented to me. She stuck around a bit after the delivery to ensure that everything was all good with me and to help with the transition to caring for my newborn for the first time before gently giving my husband and I some space to experience our new family together. Marliyn was sure to check in each day for the next few days and then did a follow up visit to our home afterwards to answer all of our new concerns, meet the baby and to make sure I was comfortable and feeling ok.

I am so thankful for her services, and now, her friendship. If we are fortunate enought to concieve again, I will definitely be calling Marilyn! In my opinion, this was a necessary investment and one of the best decisions we could have possibly made for such an important experience!

XOXO,

Krista, Charlie & Kendall Deborah
