Testimonial for Ruth Green

I would highly recommend Ruth Green as to a doula to anyone!

Although I may be slightly biased (she is my mother-in-law, after all), our experience was all that we had hoped for.

I had rather awful back labor, and Ruth diligently tended to me, even stepping aside at times to allow my husband to minister to me as well. She faithfully checked in with me, making sure that I was getting the help I needed, whether it was a drink, a massage, or  simply quiet in the room.

She worked very well with the others attending my birth, including my mother, sister and wonderful husband. She allowed my husband to be the go between for the doctors and nurses, which we appreciated. She was however, quick to point out if our birth plan was not being followed. Her cheerful disposition was quite encouraging as things became more difficult!

Something we especially appreciated was the thinking ahead attitude she had during the birth...freeing me up to simply labor! I hardly had to ask for anything, and it was already there for me to use (this includes rewarming those glorious heating pads that help SO very much with back labor). Trust me, in the middle of a contraction, having someone in tune with your needs is much prefered to actually voicing those needs.
