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

I recently hired Denise as my doula. As first time parents, my husband and I were excited to be working with her and to have someone advocate for us on the big day. Denise handles multiple clients at a time so often we didn’t feel supported or even remembered. I had to follow up to remind her of my due date a few times and she didnt remember the sex of our baby 4 weeks before i was due. All truly telling signs. The positive experience we had was that we were able to call her whenever we needed, which without the help of google was few and far in between. When it came time for the big day, unfortunately Denise wasn’t there. I was directed by my OB to get induced on a Friday due to my escalating blood pressure. My husband made a call to Denise who told us to let her know as things progressed and that she was “going to bed.“ Immediately we felt again, unsupported in addition to our having tremendous fears of laboring which were expressed to her. Soon after the induction my pregnancy took an ugly turn and we didn’t have Denise there to coach us  during our most terrifying time. We honestly don’t know why we paid what we paid — for phone calls maybe? But overall we had a truly bad and traumatic experience. It would have been helpful if she was able to better communicate her process and pay better attention to the emotional and physical needs of her clients better.
