Testimonial for Barb Fraumeni

Speaking as a first time mom who was unsure of whether or not a doula would truly be worth the money, I can now confidently say YES a thousand times over. Barb has been one of the most grounding and supportive people I've had around me during my pregnancy. She helped to settle my anxieties around birth by walking through possible scenarios with me and getting a feel for my preferences. My husband, who was also quite anxious as a first time dad, describes her support as invaluable and grounding.

Even though my birth did not go quite as I expected (don't they all!), Barb provided amazing physical and emotional support throughout my labour. I felt less alone knowing that I had someone who understood the emotional aspect of birth and how to best advocate for myself within a hospital environment. Even my doctor commended her support and said I was lucky to have her. She went above and beyond afterwards, visiting me at home multiple times and suggesting resources when breastfeeding was a struggle. She is a very down to earth woman with kids of her own and a lot of valuable life experience. With Covid, Barb was also able to offer flexible options like zoom and phonecalls where needed. My husband and I cannot recommend her highly enough, especially for first time parents.
