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

One thing that can be very unpredictable through pregnancy is the labor and delivery process. My second pregnancy was different than my first pregnancy, 12 years ago. I am older and wiser, made better eating choices (at times), exercised regularly throughout the ENTIRE 40 weeks 3 days of my pregnancy, hired a wonderful Doula, Denise Bolds, and in my mind preparing for a successful Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC). However, after 40 weeks and no signs of active labor things moved in a different direction, a scheduled Cesarean (C-Section), a major surgery with a bonus blessing at the end. For this I am most grateful for my Doula, Denise Bolds! Her love, care, education, and support, even for my C-Section Delivery, made an unexpected event a beautiful birth story I hope to share with my daughter one day!

My husband and I were able to utlize Ms. Bolds's services even though we were out of state. She provided frequent phone calls, Facetime appointments, was available by phone/text when needed, provided resources such as safely laboring at home and a sample birth plan. Ms. Bolds's provided support at the hospital pre-C-section, and after the procedure. She encapsulated the placenta and even made a beautiful piece of artwork/keepsake from the umblical cord. Upon our return home, Ms. Bolds was able to provide some postpartum support, which was much appreciated.

If you are looking for a great doula, I highly recommend Denise Bolds's Bold Doula Services.
