Testimonial for Erin Ronder Neves, MA, CD(DONA), CLC, SpBCPE, BCCE

Prior to my wife getting pregnant, I'd never heard of a doula before. When she first explained it to me, I figured it was just another of the litany of expenses to prepare for our baby's birth. I soon learned that hiring a doula, specifically Erin, was the best investment we made in a long time.


We interviewed a couple other doulas, but especially appreciated Erin's candor and transparency. Almost immediately we felt like we could trust her. She met with us on FaceTime and in-person in the months leading up to the birth and helped us figure out what items to include on our baby registry, how to draft a detailed birthing plan, and how my wife and I could do stretches together to make sure our baby was in the optimal birthing position and to relieve pain in my wife's back and pelvis.


My wife and I are both naturally anxious people, so having Erin with us throughout the pregnancy proved to be incredibly helpful in assuring us that everything would be okay. We were ecstatic to learn that Erin would be able to join us in the hospital for the birth, where she was a huge support to my wife with her breathing, how/when to push, and supporting her love languages of physical touch and words of affirmation.


Even now that our baby was born in what our midwife called "such a joyful birth" (in large part thanks to Erin!), Erin has continued to support my wife and I. Erin made sure to prepare my wife and I with post-partum supports and has also been really helpful to my wife with lactation consulting. 

In short, throughout our pregnancy Erin was able to support my wife in ways I wanted to, but wasn't able to without the first-hand experience of being a mother and her expertise in all things labor and delivery. I can assure you that if you hire Erin you won't regret it--we consider her one of our friends now!
