Testimonial for Grace Lape CD(DONA)

My husband and I hired Grace for the birth of our first child. We met with her a couple of times before our daughter's birth, and knew from the beginning that she would be a great support for both my husband and myself. Before birth, Grace was a great resource for helping myself mentally prepare by talking me through what to expect at the hospital (triage, the norms at our specific hospital, etc). She was always very personable and relatable, while still maintaining a high level of professionalism.


I went into labor a week before my due date (on Christmas Eve!). Despite it being a holiday, Grace immediate replied to my "this might be a false alarm, but..." text and stayed in contact during the early signs of labor. She arrived at our house once things started to progress and helped me labor at home (something that I had expressed as a wish during our initial meetings). We went for a walk, tried several different positions during contractions, and she supported my husband as he helped me relax during contractions. Once my contractions got intense and close together, we headed to the hospital.


During labor she was an excellent support to both myself and my husband. My husband was my main support and coach and Grace filled exactly where needed to help both of us. She was a great and non-judgmental support when I asked for an epidural during transition, supporting the hospital staff when they explained it was too late for one! She was also a great resource for communicating with the hospital staff.


Grace stayed with me after birth, something I especially appreciated since our daughter had a brief stay in the NICU and my husband was with our daughter. Grace also followed up one week after birth, which was really helpful in processing the birth experience. She also provided great postpartum resources. I would highly recommend Grace!
