Testimonial for Ryah Jo (she/her) Silver CD (PALS) CBE, OMP trained

Ryah was absolutely amazing and hands down the reason I had a successful VBAC. I was nervous about choosing a VBAC and hiring a doula (especially during Covid life) but every step of the way, Ryah provided reassurance and calmed my nerves. During our check-in's she would give great suggestions on how to prepare for labor and get my body ready to attempt the VBAC. She was always available, responsive and genuinely cared about my pregnancy and birth plan. During the actual labor/birth, she was fantastic. I delivered at Swedish and they were not very supportive of my VBAC (to say the least).  Unfortunately the medical staff was not as welcoming to her and often commented on her techniques with a condescending tone. However, Ryah was an incredible advocate for my needs while also being professional and courteous to the medical staff. She also included my husband and ensured he got to experience the birth they way he wanted (catch the baby, cut the cord, etc.). When it started to look grim for the success of my VBAC she never lost hope and continued to try different methods to get my body to cooperate. Eventually I did get my VBAC (little help from the doctor and nurses). Ryah took tasteful photos and a video, which were great. She even knew that I would be starving and ordered food for me before she left and before the kitchen closed. Overall, I had the birthing experience that I really wanted and owe it all to her. I would highly recommend hiring her if you're considering a doula. I know that if I choose to have a 3rd baby, I will 100% be using her services again. Thank you, Ryah! You have no idea how special you made this experience for my family!
