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

Luckily, Denise was available for my due date and I was able to secure her services with only 2 weeks to go! (although I ended up delivering 8 days after due date!!). I had a good feeling after speaking because of her upbeat tone and attitude (which is a must have in terms of support when laboring!). She came to my home to discuss my birthing preferences and then wrote them up and provided them to me for me to get approval on by my doctors/midwives. She even reminded me of the Hep. B vaccine for baby and what my plans were with that, something I totally forgot about (despite being my third child!) and no one else had brought up at that point. Throughout my wait for baby to come or even show signs of coming, Denise was supportive and communicative by checking in with me via text but not harassing me as to why my baby wasn’t coming out yet! (very much appreciated!). When the moment had finally come to be in touch with her for real, she was ready to jump up and get to the hospital at midnight! Once there, Denise was able to provide support my husband’s not trained to do like speaking with the staff about some things, telling them to give me a min. as I was starting another contraction, etc. (although my husband did get right up in the mix with us in my massaging and leaning as things got going through heavier parts of labor!) : ) ). Overall, I most appreciated Denise’s upbeat attitude, patience (I don’t have the quickest labors!), and strength in massaging/providing pain relief techniques to me for my back labor! It was almost as if she had read my mind at one point in terms of going to my hips for the hip squeezes at the exact moment I started to need that instead of a lower back massage! Despite doing this for hours, I felt totally comfortable calling Denise over each time a new contraction started and telling her if I wanted something very specific to be done to me.  And then, I was holding my daughter!! Thank you Denise!
