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

This was my second pregnancy but the first that I went to term with. My first pregnancy was short as my son was born preterm at six months. With this pregnancy, I wanted to make sure I had someone experienced and put together to help me reach full term and also go through an unmedicated delivery. I could not have chosen a better doula to share this amazing time with. She was always quick to respond to any and all of my random pregnancy questions. I was extremely worried about giving birth preterm with this pregnancy too since I have a short cervix. Thankfully I did go to 38 weeks at which point Maris was by my side from the time my water broke till my beautiful baby was finally here. It was not an easy delivery since I refused medication and there was some fetal distress. But Maris made sure that my wishes for my birth plan were diligently followed and she was by my side making me feel safe and secure thru all the mind-numbing pain. My husband and I are eternally grateful that she was there to help me deliver our baby since he could stay home with our toddler and we did not have to worry about who would be by my side since both our families live far away. We didn't just hire a doula, we got a friend and wonderful human being into our lives who will forever be part of my little one's birth story. I highly recommend Maris for all these reasons and I know she will be an excellent support to you and your family if you do choose to have her be part of your pregnancy and birth.
