Testimonial for Corinne Bargen

We were skeptical about needing a doula but it was our first baby and we wanted all the support in case things went wrong and we were so happy with our decision to work with Corinne. After 26 hours of early labor, 6 hours of active labor and 2 hours of pushing we ended up having our baby boy by emergency C-section under General anaesthesia. Leading up to birth Corinne was so easy to communicate with, super organized and so resourceful. She showed us all her birthing tools and toys and we felt really connected from the get go. When we finally showed up at the hospital Corinne was already on the second floor waiting for us and I remember the elevator opening and I was crying so hard in pain but I saw Corinne and fet the hugest amount of relief knowing everything was going to be okay. She was AMAZING through labor - for me she said everything I needed to hear when I needed to hear it and she held my hand through contractions and got me juice and water when I didn't even know I needed it. She was anticipating so much for me. My husband doesn't know how he would have got through any of it without Corinne, especially when he though he was going to scrub in for the C-Section but suddenly was told only "there were complications and we had to put her under. You can't come in." Corinne was a huge support for my husband that day. Just when we thought she was done, postpartum care was through the roof. At first she came over, answered questions, gave us tips, taught me how to pump and helped with breastfeeding and then as weeks went on we realized our baby was very colicky and high needs. Weeks and weeks later we reached out for help as we were buried in holding our baby 20 hours a day. She reached out to her network and got doulas to volunteer to help us during a very busy time. She cares so much about her clients and we feel blessed to have known and worked with her! We would recommend her to everyone!!!!
