Testimonial for Denise Bolds MSW, CD(DONA) CLC, CBE

As we gush over our healthy baby girl, my partner and I could not be more grateful for the amazing experience we had working with Denise. Due to Covid and mixed information about whether we could have a doula or not, we connected with Denise much later in our pregnancy than we would have liked. We immediately clicked with Denise and came to find that she’s professional, straightforward, respectful and has great energy. She took the time to get to know us as a couple so we had a great rapport. 

Our daughter ended up coming 2 1/2 weeks early but we were well prepared to have our minimally invasive, unmedicated vaginal birth thanks to Denise. She took the time to set our expectations and to outline all of the possible scenarios during our prenatal sessions. She was available to us as soon as we realized I was in early labor and she guided me through safely laboring at home for as long as possible. She me feel safe, comfortable and empowered.

She encouraged me through my delivery in her very calming voice. When I physically felt unable, she provided me with the support to push through. As a first time mom, Denise’s level of support and care was invaluable. She was able to capture some intimate photos during the labor and delivery which is priceless. 

Another HUGE benefit is that Denise is a Placenta Encapsulation Specialist. She explained her process and safety practices in detail so we were very comfortable.  I gave birth to our daughter on the weekend, so the hospital was not able to release our placenta to Denise then. She was back bright and early on Monday to pick it up so that she could get our pills to us in a timely manner. Everything was well packaged with detailed instructions and she even made a beautiful keepsake for our baby book.

As we continue to grow our family, we look forward to working with Denise again. Thank you Denise for making the birth of my first born a truly magical experience.
