Testimonial for Denise Ramirez

My husband and I had such a great experience with Denise - we would highly recommend her to anyone going through a birth experience! She was invaluable - with words of wisdom before, insight around caring for a newborn after, and in helping us during the labor process in the hospital.

I had to be induced and received pitocin to bring on contractions. I don't think I would have been able to stick to my natural birth plan if she wasn't there providing guidance and support when the contractions got increasingly stronger and faster.  She allowed us to focus on the labor process, and gave us a voice with the doctors and nurses we would not have had otherwise.  As the nurses kept increasing the pitocin drip, she helped me through each of the contractions and suggested different positions to help manage the pain, but also helped my husband with his recommendation that the doctor not increase the pitocin delivery amount; upon which, the nurse figured out that the fetal monitor was situated incorrectly and they slowed down the drip, even removing it completely for a period.  Without Denise, I would have had to get an epidural for pain-management, and there's no telling what other complication she had averted through her experience, understanding and encouragement throughout labor and delivery.  We felt as though we had someone on our side, and we are forever thankful to her for that.

After our baby was born, she helped me with breast feeding and getting the baby to latch, which, even though we saw hospital specialists and had my parents stay in the area, was still extremely helpful. Denise even followed up with us after we got home from the hospital and provided more help and support to my husband and I as we were trying to navigate taking care of our brand new baby! We would highly recommend Denise and would be happy to share perspectives or thoughts with anyone else.
