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

Denise was the first Doula I spoke with. There was an instant connection. She was very helpful during pregnancy, answering questions, providing information and even recommended a free birthing workshop. She checked in a few times during pregnancy and I updated her on appointments. This worked for us as I didn’t want her asking me weekly how is it going.We had dicsucssed laboring at home, so I did a few hours before calling Denise and my OB. At the hospital she helped keep me comfortable talking me through breathing, massaging my back Etc. I was sent back home and Denise went home as well. This was odd to me as I thought she would come to my home during labor as discussed but I didn’t mention it as I felt I was fine (at least until I got back home and the pain was unbearable). During labor Denise explained the birth plan we created to the nurses ensuring they were meeting my needs/wants. She was very helpful getting me through natural labor. She talked me through the pushes and filled in counting etc.. She kept me calm. She took photos during labor -I absolutely loved that she was able to capture the moment. After delivery the nurses asked if we would be keeping the placenta. Denise said that she would. The next day I asked my partner about this as it wasn’t discussed.  I kept meaning to follow up with her about it but did not until about a week later where she informed us she discarded it. I was disappointed to hear this as we discussed some options of things to do with the placenta but never finalized. She didn’t communicate with us her intentions or that things changed and she would need to discard it. Denise visited us at the hospital the next day, helped with breastfeeding and answered all of our questions and again in our home about a week later. She showed different ways to swaddle. Denise continues to be a resource today.
