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

I recently delivered my second daughter and after having a tough overly medical first labor I knew I wanted my second birth to be more mindful and less medical and if possible a much more centered and peaceful experience. Having a doula was a key to this plan. When I met Denise I immediately felt her positive charisma and her strength as a woman. I was not wrong as during my labor she was invaluable! When things were just winding up with my contractions she gave me an amazing acupressure massage on my feet with aromatherapy, who can ever refuse that!!! I had a plan for a water birth and she had tips and suggestions through out the whole experience which helped me be in better position and help my labor progress. She advocated for me when she felt I needed to be checked for progress. She knew what I needed before I knew my self. I wasn't able to deliver the bath as I hoped and needed an epidural for pain and Pitocin to help regulate my contractions, but this was not a limiting step for Denise. She kept me on the bed moving my positions making sure I was in an optimal setting to keep my labor progressing. She had a bag of magic with her, where she had all sorts of things...bolsters, hand fan...speakers and who knows what! She was packed for an episode of survivor on the set of L and D! lol Overall i have to say, Denise is amazing. In minutes I was comfortable with her like I've known her all my life! If we decide to have a 3rd child, I hope Denise will be there again to help me navigate my labor journey!
