Testimonial for Birth Connections LLC

We welcomed our daughter in May 2020 with the Birth Connections doulas (our family's second birth with this team). Ravae worked with us to plan for a level of support appropriate for the goals we had for this birth, keeping in mind our previous experience. I was impressed with how quickly the Birth Connections team pivoted to adjust our plan to the COVID pandemic. With COVID affecting folks availability, Ravae kept lines of communication with her team open so that I was sure to have someone available in-person who I was comfortable with. One of my main goals was to avoid medical induction, and Ravae provided tips and tricks to get things going at 40 weeks+. Baby needed to be monitored for medical reasons as soon as my water broke, so we ended up with continuous virtual support at the hospital (no in-person doulas allowed at that time). Ravae provided coaching through contractions and helped us determine what questions to ask the hospital team via FaceTime and AirPods. In between she was available for updates or concerns via text. With Ravae's help, labor progressed easily and smoothly.... until baby flipped at the last minute, ending in an emergency c-section due to baby's positioning. Ravae quickly helped me calm down and get into the right mindset to meet our new family member, and was available to check-in immediately post-op. Ravae and Brandi provided crucial empathetic and non-judgmental support for the first few weeks postpartum as we adjusted to having a newborn during a pandemic. We leaned on Brandi's postpartum expertise via phone consult for everything from baby scheduling reminders to sibling support and breastfeeding advice. Choosing Birth Connections means you have multiple experienced people on your side, with amazing women contributing their specific areas of strength and expertise. Once again, the Birth Connections team pulled through for our family and made a whirlwind birth experience into something positive and empowering.
