Testimonial for Renée Ahmadi MA CD (DONA)

We first met Renee about 2 months before babv was due. From the get go we were impressed with her openness and her flexibility in giving us the care we needed. She helped us understand what ways she could support us: helping Mum-to-be in a hands-on way (massage), coaching the Dad-to-be with what to say/do, going out to buy groceries, practicing different positions….many things we had not even imagined a doula would do! I worried I would get irritated and annoyed with her during the labour. She said, no problem! She could handle it. I had a hospital birth planned and already knew I would need pain medications due to dealing with previous health issues. Renee never once made me feel lesser for not having a “natural birth.” She respected my choices. The baby decided to come early. It was 4:30 in the morning when dad-to-be called Renee. She came to sit with me on the bed for a bit and helped me breathe through the contractions. Her presence magically made them slow for a while and we all had some rest. It was a big help having Renee in the car with me on the way to the hospital. This let dad focus on the driving and know mama was in good hands. Renee stayed at the hospital with us, supporting us throughout. I unexpectedly had had a transfer of care from my midwives to a doctor I did not know just a few days previous and so my husband and Renee were the only familiar faces, I was so glad we had a doula at that moment! I had a tough labour which required a great deal of coaching. We experienced a significant turnover of nursing staff. Renee provided consistency throughout which helped me deal with having six different nurses in 8 hours. After the baby was born Renee was very helpful visiting us at home and providing assistance on everything from dealing with post labour pains to how to wear different baby carriers. Renee was an invaluable part of  son’s birth and I would not hesitate to use or refer her services again.
