Testimonial for Brighid Quinn

I was unsure about hiring a doula, because I knew I was delivering in a hospital and not opposed to an epidural, but several friends and prenatal caregivers suggested I look into it. "The doula is there to take care of you" was what I was told. I am SO GLAD that I did, and that I found Brighid. This was my first delivery, and I was in no way prepared for the onslaught of choices and decisions that need to be made in the final months, and during the delivery itself.

Brighid helped my husband and I think through our preferences and understand our options when it came to developing a birth plan. During our initial meetings she gave us excellent information and context that we did not get in the birthing classes we attended. When she did not know something (we had a question about the placenta, and a few others), she asked her colleagues and did the research. At all points in developing the birth plan we felt very supported by Brighid.

I went in for a scheduled induction, which lead to a 3 day delivery. Brighid was indispensible during that time. She helped us reason through the many decisions that needed to be made, understand and weigh our options. She kept the mood light, and helped my husband and I find ways to support each other in the process; while also advocating for me with the medical team. During contractions, she was right there providing mental and physical comfort and support.

Out of all the things I did to prepare for my new child, working with Brighid was by far the most invaluable.
