Testimonial for Ruth Green

Ruth was a wonderful doula and I am so glad that I chose her. My initial goal in hiring a doula was to maximize my chances for a VBAC. Ruth was very knowledgeable and provided additional information specifc to VBAC. She was available to answer questions that both me and my husband had. When I went into spontaneous labor I called her, still unsure if it was time for her to come but she could tell it was and met me at the hospital. I felt at immediate ease when she arrived and she helped me labor in appropriate positions even with an epidural. When the baby experienced distress and they had to take me for an emergency c-section Ruth was right there helping me keep calm as my VBAC slipped through my fingers and fear for the safety of the baby took over. She was my spokesperson when I was in no contidion to speak for myself and made what could have been another traumatic c-section a healing experience as she made sure the baby stayed with me once she was medically clear and that I got skin to skin and early nursing. She stayed with me until I was moved to my room and comfortable and even took pictures and helped my older children hold and meet their little sister. She also offered me post-partum services and was availabel for breasfeeding concerns, she helped me around the house with cleaning and laudry and meal preparation and even transported my older kids to and from daycare. Ruth was truly amazing and if I ever had antoher child I would without question hire her again. She would be an asset to any soon to be Mom before, during and after birth.
