Testimonial for Ryah Jo (she/her) Silver CD (PALS) CBE, OMP trained

Hands down the best decision I made during my entire pregnancy was to hire Ryah as my doula. I didn't know if I needed a doula, if I could afford one, or if it would be worth it. Turns out she is worth her weight in gold and then some.

My husband and I had very little knowledge of childbirth, which caused great trepidation. Ryah not only respected this, but helped me through it. She took the time to explain things to me, gave me options to consider, and got to know my desires and comforts. She was incredibly insightful and intuitive. She honoured my requests and decisions and ensured they were met before, during, and after delivery.

I went into labour in the middle of the night, and she came to our house post haste. She stayed by my side for almost 20 hours, holding my hand, making me laugh, singing with me, wiping my tears, and constantly encouraging me. Her presence alone was uplifting, and her knowledge and medical experience was beyond comforting.

When there were times to ask her opinion on something (pitocin or no pitocin?) she presented the facts in a diplomatic and nonjudgmental fashion. She did not push an agenda, else than for me to listen to my intuition and do what was best for me and my baby.

I honestly cannot, nor would I want to, fathom my pregnancy and delivery without her. I find myself so incredibly lucky to have found such an amazing lady to assist me during such an intimate and crucial time. I would hire her again and again.
