Testimonial for Emerald Doulas

Michelle and Melanie at Emerald Doulas were the only reasons we made it through our first birth experience the way we wanted. They helped guide as during pregnancy, and having Michelle at the birth was exactly what my husband and I both needed – a calm, confident, and reassuring presence with encouraging words and a gentle touch. She prepared our hospital room making it feel warm, had recommendations for pain management, and was constantly ready with new suggestions for how to change it up when labor needed to get moving. Everything was new (and scary!) to us, so we were so grateful to Michelle for being there. For the second birth, it was less scary because there was less “unknown.” But we still wanted Michelle’s guidance, love, and support. She came through again! This time, things went even more smoothly, and it was great to have Michelle bring up suggestions and learnings from our first time around – we got active labor moving much more quickly and the birthing process was much smoother and shorter (and therefore an even better experience than the first time). Perhaps the best part of working with Michelle and Emerald Doulas is the feeling of love and reassurance, but also safety. My husband especially appreciated having the Doulas there to sort of act as an intermediary between us and the medical staff. We always felt in control of our birth plan. We will definitely use Emerald Doulas for our next child!
