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

I decided to hire a doula because I wanted to have a natural birth, and I knew I would need someone to coach me through.  I picked Denise not only because of her deep knowledge and experience with birth, but because of her intution and clear ability to adapt to her client's needs.  Denise was attentive and helpful from the beginning, and kept up a positive attitude in the face of my worries that always managed to put me at ease. I finally went into labor at 40 weeks + 6 days, and I experienced exclusively back labor. Denise was with me the whole time, providing counterpressure and encouragement, and helping direct my husband to keep him calm and get everything ready for the hospital.  She kept me laboring at home where I was comfortable, and by the time I got to the hospital I was 10 cm dilated and ready to push!  She counted down the pushes for me and moved me into different positions so I could work the baby out.  In those moments, it was her voice that focused me and concentrated my energy to push.

Without Denise, I believe I would have broken down and gotten an epidural.  Instead, thanks to her, I had the completely drug-free birth that I had long wanted.  She will be one of my first calls when I get pregnant with baby #2. I cannot recommend her more.
