Testimonial for Deborah Badran, CD(DONA)

This is a rebuttal to the testimonial posted on 5/25/2017 I am truly shocked and saddened by the MJW testimonial placed on my doula profile and that she did not put her name on it. I know exactly who this is. It is an attack on my professional character intended to destroy my reputation and to dissuade potential clients from working with me. It is so easy to project negativity anonymously and do harm to others on line. In the interest of fairness and protecting my honor as a trusted birth professional, I will post my thoughts. I have had wonderful happy clients throughout my doula career that spans over 19 years. I have never had a client speak of me in the terms mentioned here. I have never persuaded a client to work with me. I only want to support wonderful clients who are of the same philosophy, character and mindset as myself so that we are a great match for a successful birth experience. I work with clients who “choose me” to help them have the most rewarding birth. When I agree to take a client, they see my contract and refund policy which clearly states that I accept payment at the time my services are engaged. It states that if there is a scheduled c section or an emergency, that there will be a refund of 50% which was paid to this client. Neither of us have any control over an unexpected c section. We have to share the loss as I turned away 2 other clients to protect their due date. Unfortunately, it took much longer than I would have liked to refund their money as I had other people with unexpected scheduled c sections at the same time. This testimonial is a gross misrepresentation of the excellent support I have offered to over 1800 lovely clients during my doula career. It is always my priority to be fair and supportive of all of my clients.
