Testimonial for Nicole Chambers

We hired Nicole from Ridge Meadows Doula Services when I was 8 weeks pregnant.  I had a good feeling about her from the beginning.   Throughout my pregnancy she was never more than a text message away with a few questions I had.  Then late into my pregnancy I started having complications.  Turned out 5 days before my due date I ended up consenting to a induction.  I was admitted to the hospital.  I called Nicole in tears.  She was by my side not an hour later.  I wasnt even in labour yet. I was just upset over the situation.  She brought over her tens machine which was a big help with the contractions I was having.  The OB wanted to go straight to a c section the next day, bypassing more cervadil or a pitocin induced labour.  I felt bullied by the OB, I wanted to at least try labour but I felt like my opinion was invalid.  Thanks to Nicole, Allison and Erin (we got the benefit of all 3 of Nicoles Doulas at one time!) who with their help the doctor agreed to let me try pitocin the next day.

During labour she realized that I needed moral support from my husband, who would have been cowering in a corner without Nicoles direction to help make me comfortable.  She quietly nudged him to be the emotionally available husband he has never really been.  I didnt think he had it in him.  I am forever grateful to her for that.  Pitocin induced labour was a beast that could not be tamed, but she tried.  I had bruises on my low back from where they were trying to give me counter pressure... which still wasnt enough.

After a c section Nicole came to recovery to see me, with another member of her team up with my terrified husband and our new son.  After the birth I had breastfeeding questions which shewas always available to answer.

Thank you Nicole for everything.  The coaching, the support, the knowledge and the forever positive energy!
