Testimonial for Emerald Doulas

We used Emerald Doulas for births in 2017 & 2020 & relied on them virtually for our experience in 2020 for COVID-19 restrictions. The community prenatals provide so much helpful information that I’ve relied on to take good care of my son, especially in a time when my normal support system is not available to me in person. Additionally, having virtual check ins, video chats, text messages, and basically on-demand answers and expert guidance all combine into a really informative experience. This current time is very isolating, so being able to reach into a wealth of educational content prior to and after birth has been reassuring. I wanted birth doulas primarily for their wealth of evidence-based guidance and received that and much more from Emerald Doulas, a long with really impressive adaptations to virtual support. As we updated them during birth, they guided us to try certain things, like suggesting when to put the TENS unit on based on the sensations I was experiencing. We have learned great things about medicated and unmediated birth, exclusive breastfeeding, infant growth, infant care tips,  paced bottle feeding, pumping and transitioning back to work, introducing our dog to our baby, navigating the emotional labor of caring for our home and each other postpartum, and so much more. We used the knowledge we had gained from EmDo education prior to and during birth and in the weeks we’ve spent so far with our son. I am very grateful for their support and highly recommend their services, especially in such unknown times. Having a solid, evidence-based foundation going through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum (especially in the midst of a pandemic) provides stability, confidence, and improves your family’s ability to care and advocate for themselves. Thank you for the education and support, EmDo team!
