Testimonial for Ruth Green

We had an excellent experience with Ruthy as our doula during the birth of our first child. We met with her initially at Panera to have an introductory conversation, and through the course of our talk we realized that this was a good fit of both ideals and personalities. We were looking for a doula who was a balanced Christian and who would be a support for both my husband and myself, but would mainly encourage and equip my husband to be my primary support during the labor and delivery process. Ruthy has a very steady and grounded way of speaking that instills confidence, and she is both strong and maternal, which is a vital combination during labor. We had one prenatal visit with her which was extensive and informative, and she helped us find balanced resources from her lending library when we asked questions about vaccines. We had a second prenatal visit scheduled, but we went into labor a month early! During the initial contractions we called her several times with updates, and she provided tips and encouragement as she headed our way. Our original plan was for her to meet us at our home to labor there as long as possible, but my labor progressed very quickly, so she met us at the hospital. She helped me manage the pain of contractions with double hip squeezes (I just KNOW her arms were killing her the next day) and throughout my [quite swift] labor, she would suggest a different position if needed or rub my back or remind me to stay hydrated. I primarily remember my husband's presence and confidence throughout the process, and I know that her quiet suggestions and encouragments to him had a lot to do with his level of comfort, which was exactly what I hoped for. Ruthy had worked so diligently to get to know me and my husband during the prep conversations that I had every confidence that the three of us were working as a team and were on the same page. All in all, a beautiful blessing of an experience, and I would recommend her.
