Testimonial for Deborah Badran, CD(DONA)

Deborah was amazing as our doula for the birth of our baby girl. Her experience comes through in her calm, warm, knowledgeable and unflappable approach. She really was there to support both me and my husband, not only me, which wasn't always the feeling we got when we met other doulas.Our OB recommended Deborah, and after interviewing many other doulas, we can now see why. She knows the ins and outs of the hospital and how the nurses and doctors in labor and delivery like to work. She was there to guide us through every step of the journey.
Her service is very comprehensive: she prepared us and answered all questions prior to the birth, she was in constant contact with us leading up to my due date, once contractions started she guided us through early stages and helped us decide when to go to the hospital. Once we arrived at the hospital Deborah was there and waiting for us. She immediately started coaching me through pain management and guiding my husband through the necessary logistics. She coached me through each contraction and offered just the right amount of physical support through labor. She helped me believe I could do it and even remembered to take photos of the 3 of us! After our daughter was born she immediately began focusing on our first latch, in fact her suggestion of trying football hold made all the difference and I truly think we were successful in those first few days because of her early advice. After all of this, Deborah made sure to stay in regular contact with us by phone and text just to make sure we were settling well at home.
Deborah believes in supporting you and your partner through the whole process. She honors your preferences, respects the care provided at the hospital by the doctors and nurses and they clearly respect her. She never made me feel guilty or bad for my choices, but helped me make them by considering the options based on knowing what I wanted. I am so grateful we were able to work with Deborah!
