Testimonial for Chloe Wilcox. CD(DONA)

Chloe was a godsend to my husband and I for the birth of our second child in two years, our daughter Maya. A few weeks before the due date we had to abruptly change birth plans from a home birth with our local midwives to a hospital birth with the nurse midwifery team at Providence in Everett due to rising blood pressures. The exact same thing had happened with my first child's birth, and I had an emotionally difficult experience with his birth due to an induction at 39 weeks and several parts of that process that didn't go so smoothly. I resolved that if I had another hospital birth, I'd do my best to have a doula. Chloe just happened to be available on such short notice, so I met with her and felt so comfortable right away. She offered so many resources, but most of all affirmation of all I was feeling and openness to what I wanted my birth experience to be and how she could help support that. My husband was less convinced that there was much value in hiring another person for our support team, but in retrospect he said he got it and that it was great that she was there. My birth experience this time was so much different from my previous birth; I felt more confident, like I had someone I could rely on for experienced ideas about what to try next, how to interpret what was happening, and also who would take some of the pressure off of my husband. After I birthed our daughter, Chloe stayed with us for a few hours while they got us settled in and stablized me (I wasn't sure I wanted the specific medication they were going to give me, so Chloe helped me feel confident asking about my options). Chloe also visited us at home after the birth, and gave us a typed copy of the timeline of the birth, which was really neat to have. Overall, Chloe provided incredible support both before, during, and after our daughter's birth, and I would highly recommend her to any family seeking a birth doula.
