Testimonial for Haley Parizo, RN, CLD, CPD

Haley was an incredible doula and we are so grateful she was with us. From the moment we met her, Haley was a calm and reassuring presence in our home. She took the time to get to know us (and our pup) so that we were at ease from the start. At one of our prenatal visits, Haley walked through our home with us and pointed out things we could set up or do pre-baby to make our first weeks easier like set up a changing area downstairs and buy snacks for those midnight feeds. Her tips were so helpful we've repeated them to all our pregnant friends!

My labor was long and difficult and Haley stayed by side the entire time. She somehow knew exactly what my husband and I needed without ever having to ask. She suggested different laboring positions and whispered words of encouragement. When labor got really tough, I just looked for her calming face. I don't know we would have gotten through it without her. She also took beautiful photos of our labor and delivery, though I don't remember noticing she was snapping photos at that time. We're so grateful to have those now. 

Among the best parts of working with Haley was her postpartum care. She visited our new family a few times after baby was born to help us give him his first bath and use baby carriers and answered general baby care questions. My husband and I were so happy and so relieved to see her each time she came by. She even helped care for baby when I struggled with mastititis and needed to rest. 

If it is not already plainly evident, there are not enough positive words to describe Haley. She is kind and skilled and strong. If we are lucky enough to have another baby, we will call her the minute we get that positive pregnancy test. She will always be a part of our family.
