Testimonial for Denise Bolds MSW, CD(DONA) CLC, CBE

I was very happy with my birth experience with Denise and would recommend her. I interviewed four doulas before I hired Denise, and what impressed me at our first meeting was her confidence, positivity, and clear organization. None of the other doulas I spoke to had a checklist of topics to go over with new clients the way Denise did -- this was very important because I was a first time mother and didn't know the right questions to ask! I was also very heartened by the statement of inclusivity on her web site, which stated that she supports mothers of all kinds -- same-sex couples, single mothers, teen mothers, etc. As a single mother, it was important to me that I feel explicitly included by my doula, rather than that my lack of a partner was a problem she had to work with, as other doulas made me feel. She was very thorough and put together a complete birth plan before I went into labor. Once I was in labor, I stayed in touch with Denise by phone until the labor was clearly progressing, and she joined me at my apartment and then drove me to the hospital. I was in a great deal of pain and Denise was firm and kind, helping me through contractions and physically holding me gently but firmly. Denise was exactly the right person to be with me in that moment, maintaining her calm and positive attitude no matter what I said or did! She also followed up with me many times after the birth (more than necessary from her contract) and genuinely remained interested and concerned about my progress and well-being in the weeks after my son was born. I absolutely am glad that I hired Denise and would recommend her with no hesitation to other mothers.
