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

Being pregnant for the first time, without the support from family due to COVID-19, we were very anxious about labor and birthing. We went through all classes and videos we can :P but that ended up making more anxious due to the focus on potential complications in many of them.. 

We wanted to have a natural birth with minimal interventions, and we decided to get a doula to help us through the process and make sure we make the right decisions for us. We interviewed Ryah, and she was a great fit from the get go. She was always available throughout the last month with any questions we had and kept reassuring us of what is expected as I saw many changes over that time. We had a couple of zoom sessions to prep for the labor and go over coping techniques - she even sent us a nice little gift box for the parter with 50 ways to help during labor..  

During the labor, we reached out to her middle of the night and she was quick to respond and guided us through it. In time, she made the right decision to go to the hospital and we reached there with 9cm dialation. She was very supportive throught the labor and we welcomed our baby boy less than 4 hours later. Unfortunately, I could not hold any food or water during early labor and had diarreah or vomit whenever i ate or drank anything. Ryah knew this could cause dehydration, and made sure that the hospital staff were aware of this and ready even before we reached there, which was very helpful.

Overall we had a great experience with her and will continue to get her help for the 4th trimester. She is very experienced and our takeaway is that she can help you the way that is best for your situation.
