Testimonial for Nicole Chambers

I had an excellent experience with the Ridge Meadows Doula group. Each of the Doulas has their own unique strengths and personality and they all share a serious passion for what they do. They are goddesses of the birth world! Every time I had a question or concern, I knew an answer was only a quick text message away.

This was my first birth and at first I was a little hesitant to use a Doula Collective, as opposed to one who works on her own. These fears were quickly put to rest at the initial meeting. Their model really is effective, as one of them will just about always be available to you, even if another client ends up in labour at the same time. I found that my husband and I got to know Nicole, Allison and Jessica equally well through the home visits and online communication, and I remember when we were talking about it in the week before my due date, we couldn't pick which Doula we would prefer to be at the birth. All of them are great!

The home visits were very helpful in determining what was most important to us and what interventions could come up so we'd be prepared to make informed choices during the birth. The Doulas also went over Optimal Fetal Positioning and various methods of dealing with pain in labour. I always felt 10x more confident at the end of the visit.

When the time came, Jessica was at the hospital with us ASAP and was a very calm and comforting presence. She helped immensely when I started to panic a little.

When I first looked into hiring a Doula, I knew they attended births. I did not know how valuable they are Postpartum. Allison was a huge help in hospital, teaching my husband how to change a diaper and assisting me with the baby's latch. She even made a few house calls afterwards when I was getting the hang of breastfeeding, and held the baby while we ate dinner one night.

Overall, I would highly recommend Ridge Meadows Doula Group and would use them again without hesitation.
