Testimonial for Barbie French, CD(DONA), CPD(RI)

After researching and interviewing several doulas for post partum care I came across Barbie’s profile. Her years of experience were what originally prompted me to setup a call. Barbie and I spoke on that first call for nearly an hour. Something about her just made me feel very comfortable. Not only did she have years of experience but she had a wealth of knowledge on all things pregnancy and childbirth. Shortly after meeting with Barbie for the first time my husband and I decided we would also like to hire her as a birth doula. She was extremely supportive and helpful to us during a scary time- giving birth during the covid-19 pandemic. She was calm, collected and a strong advocate for us at the hospital. Throughout my pregnancy, any question I had for Barbie she was able to answer immediately and would often provide articles/ backup to help me make any decisions I needed to on specific issues. In addition to her prenatal visits, Barbie was always available by text or phone call throughout my entire pregnancy to answer my questions. She not only helped me prepare for birth with tools and exercises to ensure the baby was in proper position for birth but she was able to recommend products for my recovery after birth as well as things I hadn’t even thought of for the baby’s recovery. She provided many helpful resources such as books, support groups and lactation consultant recommendations. After I got home from the hospital Barbie was there for moral support. She was able to talk me through my emotions and anxiety that I was having after childbirth and with caring for this new baby. Anyone would be lucky to have Barbie as a birth and post partum doula. She’s knowledgeable, calming, and a strong coach to get you through the most important job of your life!
