Testimonial for Emerald Doulas

Short review: EVERYONE DESERVES A DOULA!
Long review:
My husband and I became acquainted with Emerald Doulas at the childbirth education class led by Ashley, which not only equipped us with important information we needed to know about childbirth, but also allowed us to reflect on our emotions during that very exciting time of my pregnancy. Until taking the childbirth class at 5-6 months pregnant, neither my husband nor I considered hiring a doula. The warm and empowering energy we experienced at the childbirth class made me realize I wanted a doula to be there with me during labor, even though I wasn't sure what doula support would look like or what kind of support I needed. Turns out I really needed it! The midwives overseeing my prenatal care at Durham Women's Clinic couldn't have been more reassuring and enthusiastic about our decision to hire Emerald Doulas. They assured us we would be in great hands and have all the support we needed during labor, and they were so right! Melanie and Kallyn were our doulas, and they will have a special place in my heart for the rest of my life. They offered support before, during, and the weeks after my daughter's birth. They have this amazing way of knowing exactly when to check in or offer the perfect bit of advice and support when I need it. Kallyn was there for the actual birth of my daughter, and my husband and I cannot imagine doing it without her. Kallyn's warm and loving presence, wisdom, and support endured through my very long labor and was welcomed by me, my husband, as well as the nurses and midwives on staff. Even during labor, I kept thinking how grateful I was to have her by my side and could not imagine the alternative. If I ever have more children, we will most definitely be hiring and Emerald Doula again. We couldn't imagine it any other way.
