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

We were unsure until late in my pregnancy whether we wanted to hire a doula, and I'm so glad we did.  Colleen was an integral part of our birth experience.  Happily, she was available on short notice.  After meeting with her and discussing our birth plan, it was clear that she was knowledgeable about the kind of birth we wanted to have. i was also reassured by the fact that she has several children of her own, so has her own experience to bring to the table.  She came to our home and met with us to help us prepare for the birth, and gave training on basic infant care and first aid.  I feel that we were pretty well prepared for a natural childbirth with our choice of hospital and healthcare provider, but Colleen offered helpful additional information.  She was supportive when I went past my due date and helped me get through the process of stalling the induction that my provider was encouraging.  Unfortunately, I did eventually have to have the induction, but with Colleen's help we were still able to have a natural childbirth without medication.  Colleen has a very grounding manner,  and she knows when to step in to provide extra support and when to play down her presence.  I felt she was very respectful of my partner's role as my birth partner while providing additional, essential care and support.  She worked well with my midwife, too. Colleen also provides placenta encapsulation services, which I recommend to help with the tough postpartum hormonal changes.  She even returned to the hospital to pick up the placenta, since they would not release it right away.  Colleen took a lot of photographs during the birth,  and shared them with me, which was great. She also paid me a visit a couple of weeks after our daughter's birth, just to check in and make sure that the transition was going well. She's very professional and kind, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a doula.
