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

This was our third birth with a doula, but first birth with Ryah. We knew Ryah was going to be a great fit for us as a doula right away--even over zoom introductions. She has a positive, calming, encouraging personality. Additionally, Ryah is naturally gifted as a doula and it's also very noticeable that she is highly skilled and knowledgeable through her experience as a doula and midwife assistant.

Throughout my third pregnancy she was always there to support me as I faced new medical challenges that caused me anxiety. She always validated me but also helped me focus on what I could control and the positives. When my baby was breech, she gave me a plan of daily exercises to help her move and my baby did flip!

Ryah helped us think about things for our birth wish list that we hadn't considered before. Ultimately, I had another unmedicated birth as I hoped for but I really don't think I'd have the confidence to do this without a doula support. Ryah provided support the entire time, helped my spouse support me as well, and helped me to stay focused and calm when I needed it. Towards the end of my labor as I was near pushing, we learned that my baby was sunny side up and turned, making my contractions really painful. Ryah quickly moved in to suggest different positions that helped the baby get into a better position. The OB was ready to break my water to move things along, but Ryah advocated to go through a few more contractions in different positions to get the baby to move first, which was great insight. Thankfully, my baby moved to a more favorable position for pushing. Ryah also helped advocate for my husband to be involved in the delivery--he got to pull the baby out once her shoulders were out and place her on my chest. This was really special for us.

Ryah made us feel comfortable, supported, advocated for, and cared for. She also took some beautiful labor and delivery photos. She is also great at maintaining clear communication.
