Testimonial for Emerald Doulas

After experiencing a traumatic birth with our son my midwife recommended hiring a doula when I was pregnant with our daughter. I called Emerald Doulas that afternoon. Melanie and Sara were the doula team we were going to work with! My husband and I had an initial consultation meeting with them and I just knew they were going to be the support I needed for this pregnancy and delivery. Although I was very excited about our growing family I realized I was still having a lot of anxiety and fear lingering from the birth of our son. I wanted to do everything within in my control to have the birth experience I imagined this time. Working with Emerald Doulas was the best decision we made. From there Melanie and Sara became an incredible source of support and knowledge. They are both such calming and nurturing women and they provided the reassurance I needed and helped educate me and were able to help my husband to be an active partner. I started to feel better about this pregnancy and wasn't as scared. My husband and I took the Childbirth Education class offered by Emerald. This was the BEST class and I wished I had the opportunity to have taken that class before we had our son the first time we were expecting. It should be required that ALL expecting mothers take this class!

Melanie and Sara were always available to us for support, questions, you name it. As we approached 36 weeks Melanie and Sara we discussed our birth plan and my husband and I were feeling confident. They had truly helped me and provided me with the confidence to advocate for myself. I did have the birth I imagined and words cannot explain how happy I was about the entire birth experience and I know it's because we worked with Emerald Doulas. I recommend them to anyone and everyone that I can. The level of professionalism, classes, support groups, lactation consultants, postpartum doulas, etc. that are available to the expecting parents through Emerald Doulas are one of a kind.
