Testimonial for Grace Lape CD(DONA)

When I was pregnant with my second child, I began looking for a doula who was a faithful Catholic and could support me in the spiritual aspect of labor, as well as someone who was casual, easy to work with, and worked well with my and my husband's personalities. I was seeking someone who could help me have a different labor from what I had with my first baby, which was scary and disappointing in some ways, and did not include a spritual aspect.The first time I spoke with Grace, I knew she was the answer to prayer. 

Grace immediately understood what I was looking for and shared ideas for how I could approach my labor prayerfully and with intention, while also leaving room for God to work with us in the moment. She helped it become everything I had prayed for and it was such a beautiful experience. I labored at a hospital but she made it the environment I really wanted, from playing beauitful music to keeping the lights dim to helping me labor in the best positions for me. She helped me have a natural labor and I truly don't think I could have done it without her.

Grace also helped keep my husband involved in the entire process, which was very important to us. I think some people are afraid a doula would replace a husband's role, but a good one can actually enhance his role and help him meet his wife's changing needs. She knew exactly when to step in directly and when it was a better time for my husband to be closer to me.

Grace is also nonjudgmental and will affirm and support whatever decision you make for your labor, whether it's in your planning or an in-the-moment decision you have to make. Although I chose no interventions, I truly felt that if I had decided to have an epidural or needed a c-section, the way she saw us and treated us would not have changed at all.

Overall, we had a beautiful experience with Grace and she truly blessed our family. I hope to have her with me again if we are blessed with more children.
