Testimonial for Ruth Green

From the moment my husband & I met Ruthy, we unanimously agreed that we wanted her to be the doula for the birth of our first child. Her calm & professional demeanor impressed us & we always felt at ease when we met with her leading up to the birth. When it came time for me to deliver our daughter, Ruthy was very accessible, despite it being a holiday. My husband & I decided to have Ruthy meet us at the hospital after my labor had started. However, as my labor slowly progressed, I ended up choosing to have an epidural. We felt like since the birth was taking a different direction than what we had wanted & since I thought my pain would be a little more numbed, that we did not want to waste Ruthy's time. We called her to tell her what was happening & that we weren't really sure if we would need her help. What a welcoming surprise it was though, when she came into the labor room. She asked us if it was still okay that she was there & we of course, said "Yes!" Despite having the epidural, I still felt the contractions on my left side. Ruthy was always very much in-tuned to what would be best to make me comfortable. When the idea that a c-section was becoming more and more of a reality, Ruthy offered to pray with us & suggested that we contact our friends to do the same. After exhausting all humanly possible options to avoid having a c-section, it wasn't until after that moment that I finally reached enough dilation to be able to push & avoid a c-section all together. I am extremely grateful for Ruthy's care for us during the birth of our daughter. I think without her encouragement & support, our birth would have been a very different experience.
