Testimonial for Colleen Myatt CD/PCD(DOÑA), CLC, PES, ICCE

I had the pleasure of working with Colleen for the delivery of my first child.  I had met several other doulas (in Manhattan, Fairfield County, and Westchester County) for in-person interviews.  The majority seemed competent and passionate about their work, but it was only after meeting Colleen that I felt I had found someone who I wanted to accompany me and my husband on delivery day.  While being a very calm and warm person who immediately felt "motherly" to me, she exuded confidence, focus, and decisiveness, and I knew she would work well with both me and my husband.  I hired Colleen early in my second trimester, and in addition to her two pre-delivery visits that were wonderful, she was very responsive to any questions I had throughout my pregnancy.  She referred me to a wealth of evidence-based articles, daily relaxation exercises, online pregnancy workouts, and a chiropractor, all of which were essential in helping me to have a very healthy pregnancy while commuting into Manhattan and working long hours up until days before delivery.

My labor started with my water breaking around 2am, and it was Colleen that I texted in the middle of the night, more than 12 hours before I made the call to my OB's office.  Colleen coached me and my husband through early contractions over the phone; she knew when it was time to come to my home, and then when it was time to head to the hospital.  Just as I had hoped, I was able to labor mostly at home, arriving at the hospital just in time to push.  Had I wanted to go to the hospital sooner, or wanted an epidural, or needed a C-section, I know Colleen would have been supportive as she truly respects your intuition as to what is right.  I felt very safe working with her, and she is well-respected at Greenwich Hospital, which is where I gave birth.  She also continued to be a wonderful resource to me post-partum.  I recommend her most highly!
