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

I am SO thankful that we had Denise as our birth doula. Her support before, during, and after my delivery was absolutely invaluable and I would highly recommend her to anyone considering hiring a doula.

Before delivery, Denise met with us via FaceTime and in person and gave us a ton of helpful information and resources. She was quick to respond to any questions I texted her and she even dropped off a birthing meditation CD out of the blue one day.

Denise also put together a thoughtful and comprehensive birth preferences/plan for us based on our discussions. As is often the case, my labor took some unexpected turns. I could not have been more happy with the help and peace of mind that Denise provided throughout the entire process. Unfortunately we ended up with a standoff-ish doctor that we really disliked and it was like pulling teeth to get any information on how things were progressing from him or the nurses. Denise was our rock, there with a wealth of information and moral support. She helped us understand what to expect in terms of what should and shouldn’t be happening, as well as things to ask the nurses. She is calm and reassuring, and also knows the appropriate times to be firm (especially when advising us on how to deal with the frustrating staff!). I mean it 100% when I say that it is because of Denise that I will remember my delivery as a positive experience.

After birth, Denise stayed with us, took photos of our precious initial moments as a family, and made sure that we got our “golden hour” with our new baby. Even after our post-natal visit at our apartment, Denise continued to follow up and help with tips and referrals related to breastfeeding, colic, and circumcision. She even stopped by again to give us a product she recommended for our baby.

Overall, Denise is a warm, funny, caring, confident, and knowledgeable person.
I cannot recommend her highly enough!
