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

On Nicole’s very last prenatal visit, which was scheduled at 3:45PM, Nicole takes the train alone to the visit. The weekend before, she would move into a new, larger apartment with her husband. Nicole also BUILT two dining room tables. All of these actions were not conducive of a placenta previa and pre-eclampsic pregnancy. Nicole also was not getting enough sleep and working many days until 10 PM, Nicole had very little sleep/rest/recovery to support a healthy outcome. It was at her last prenatal visit Nicole and her husband were advised of having an induction and were instructed to go to the hospital after having one last good meal before the procedure. Both Nicole and Damien would arrive at the hospital at 10:47PM - almost 7 hours later after being instructed by their prenatal provider to have some thing to eat and head over to the hospital. Please keep in mind – I was waiting on stand by all this time. Nicole and Damien did call me before going to the hospital and I admonished them at their delay in getting to the hospital. It would be another 2 hours before the couple would arrive. I explained the procedure to them again and also clarified that a doula normally doesn't come at the beginning of any induction as the procedure takes awhile and that yes, I would be going to bed and resting up for when the induction goes into full affect. Please keep in mind I was on stand by during the 7 hour-long dinner. (part 3 continued below)
