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

I'll admit, I was skeptical of using a doula at first, and didn't quite understand why I would need one. Because of COVID related factors, I ended up losing my midwife and doctors 7 months in, and we got a doula so I could have a consistent and familiar face in the delivery room, being a first time mom and not allowed to have any other guests besides my husband due to COVID. Now, looking back, I can't even picture going through the birth experience without a doula. In a sea of doctors and nurses, Ryah was definitely the smartest person in that delivery room and was a constant advocate for me in all 37 hours of an induction and vaginal delivery with an epideral. She has a strong but listening presence and I found myself trusting her immediately. My husband and I also took one-on-one online birth classes with Ryah, she shipped us a CPR doll to practice infant CPR since in-person classes were all cancelled, sent me evidence-based birth articles, and her postpartum home visit was incredibly valuable as a check in about my health (did you know that after you give birth you don't have a follow up visit with your provider for 6 weeks, while you're bleeding, tears are healing, and all your organs are going back to hopefully the right location?). Even beyond when her contract ended, Ryah reached out regulalrly via text to see how I was doing. Ryah is excellent at her job, and a joy to be around, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a support person to help you feel confident about parenthood and having a healthy satisfying birth experience.
