I am so thankful for my doula, Gabe. She was like an angel from heaven to me. I knew within 1 minute of our initial meeting that Gabe was the perfect fit. She is centered and serene and the easiest to talk to person I have ever met. I am a shy and private person, but throughout our 3 prenatal meetings, during labor, and at our folow up visit, I have poured out my heart to Gabe, clung to her like I would my mother or sister, and chatted like I would with an long time friend. After the birth of my son, I missed Gabe and couldn't wait for our follow up visit. As I am learning to care for my newborn son, I can hear her gentle voice in my mind, encouragng me - "That's the way. There you go." Gabe was a gift from God to me.
In regard to the administrative side of things, Gabe is extremely organized and staight forward. I never had to wonder about cost or protocol because all the details were in writing. Gabe was on time for each meeting and was very easy to schedule with. She went above and beyond our contractual agreement with texts and phone calls following my birth.
I was so grateful to have Gabe to take care of me during my labor. She gave me confidence to have a beautiful natural birth. I only planned to have one child, but now, maybe I will do it again. Thank you, Gabe!
