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

My husband and I welcomed a daughter one year ago in August. Denise was our birth doula and we cannot say enough good things. She is extremely well-trained, knowledgeable, and an advocate for you, the patient, first and foremost. My reasons for a doula were varying, but specifically that a) I didn't want to take a birthing class, mostly due to some time contraings and I acknowledged that I b) have an unjustified/irrational fear of the what if. My thought was what if something happened to me or to the baby, and my husband or I needed support, we needed someone in the room for US. Although the birth went off fairly easily, we were 4 weeks early. We had just met with Denise the night my water broke and so we ended up seeing her at the hospital later that night much sooner than anticipated. Because our daughter was technically premature and it all happened in a flash, Denise was able to help me and my husband navigate the circumstances and keep david with our daughter while I recovered.

She is straightforward, respectful, and no nonsense. She helped me figure out when it was time for an epidural and told me I'd gotten as far as I could on my own and was a cheerleader. It gave me the strength and rest I needed to get us across the finish line a few hours later. And because we ended up in the NICU, Denise couldn't come home with us and settle us in, but she checked back in and visited us in the hospital. Given that we met, signed contract and then had the baby, all in 24 hours, it was great. We are grateful to her for her support and have already recommended her to other friends.
