Testimonial for Maris James, CD (DTI), CBE, CBC

I was unsure about having a doula for my birth up until the 6 weeks prior to my due date, but was so glad that I changed my mind and found Maris!

Maris made me feel comfortable from the very beginning, and she understood and eased my concerns. She was always reachable via e-mail or text, and quick to respond when I needed her. She also spent a lot of time talking to my husband, answering his questions and making him feel confident as we were entering the unknown.

Maris met us at the hospital, and because of her I had such a positive birth experience (My own mistake was not calling Maris to come meet me at my apartment when I first started my contractions). I was able to go natural with no epidural, though she was supportive of any decision I made, epidural or not. The counter pressure she applied during the final contractions was immensely helpful. I had a great staff of nurses and doctors with me, but Maris was a constant in the room and was an advocate for my husband, my child and me. 

I can't say enough positive things about Maris. She was the best for our growing family.
