Testimonial for Ruth Green

Having Ruth as our doula was undoubtedly one of the best decisions my husband and I made during my pregnancy. One of my best friends suggested that I find a doula when she found out I was expecting our first child. I started the search but it ended as soon as I met Ruthy. We hit it off immediately. She was funny, caring, detail orientated, experienced and also put my mind at ease. She also made me laugh and within minutes I felt as though I had known her for years! My husband, who was initially unsure about hiring a doula, warmed up to the idea once he realized that she would be there to support BOTH of us – not just me, and she was also NOT replacing him. During my pregnancy she would often check in on me and offer advice. I loved knowing she was only one phone call or text away- especially in the weeks leading up to my due date. The meetings we had and the birth class she offered were educational, informative, and fun. I actually felt prepared and calm on the day we checked into the hospital!  When the time came she was by our side in the hospital for nearly 24 hours, staying awake with us all night and staying by our sides.  Every 12 hours when the nursing shifts would change I would start to feel anxious, but knowing Ruthy was still there immediately calmed me down. She provided us with comfort and support. She was also my cheerleader, my advocate and my support system! Every time the doctor or nurse would recommend something, I would look at her for reassurance. In hindsight – I simply can’t imagine those 24 hours without her. In closing, if you are reading this review and looking for a doula on doulamatch.net – look no further then Ruth Green. If Ruth can keep this nervous first-time anxiety ridden Mama happy during a pandemic – AND keep me smiling, laughing and CALM in the L&D room for over 24 hours – she is capable of anything!!  Hire Ruth and I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
