Testimonial for Colleen Myatt CD/PCD(DOÑA), CLC, PES, ICCE

After having twins I needed help and I had no idea where to look. I didn't know postpartum doulas existed and I definitely didn't know what one could do for me.

From my first phone call with Colleen I was completely comfortable. The minute she stepped foot in my home I felt at ease, and within the hour my (considerable) nervousness about having a stranger in my postpartum wreck of a house evaporated. Without being asked she knew what needed to be done both to help with me and the babies and to get my house back in order. Having her here was very calming for me and the babies both responded so positively to her. I also think she may be part octopus; the first day she was here I went up to shower and when I came down she had one baby on her chest, one on her lap, and was happily folding laundry. They're my kids and *I* can't do that. 

Colleen was with me for several weeks and became a member of the family. She was able to help juggle both babies and my three year old as we navigate toilet training, in addition to giving me a break and keeping the house running. She never got ruffled, never forgot to do something, was always game for anything. She gave sage advice if I asked for it but I never, ever felt like she was judging me for decisions I made on my own either.

I don't know how to adequately sum up the difference Colleen made in my postpartum period. I felt grounded, supported, and strong with her here in a time when I was navigating my new life in the dark. It was like having all the best parts of your mom there, along with a personal assistant, nanny, housekeeper, and most importantly friend. If a postpartum doula is in your future I can't recommend Colleen highly enough. If you're on the fence about getting one - do it. I wish I'd known about it with my first child, I think it would have changed the whole experience of being a new mother for the better.
