Testimonial for Michelle Gabriel-Caldwell

As first time parents, my husband Brian and I wanted to go into the childbirth experience with as much information as possible. I knew from the start that I wanted a doula by my side when giving birth. I set out to find a doula, and through my OBGYN/The Birth Center of NJ, I was able to connect with Michelle.

Michelle provided us the tools and knowledge needed to feel comfortable and at ease when preparing for our baby. We were lucky enough to take a birthing course with Michelle as our instructor and we felt so empowered at the conclusion of the course.

Preparing for birth, I felt confidence in myself that I never had before. I owe much of that to Michelle. When meeting with us for the first time, Michelle took the time to ask us questions and get to know us as people and to understand what we wanted to gain from our birth experience.

When it came showtime, Michelle was my rock. Waking up the morning of March 13, 2021 and feeling strong contractions, I knew it was time to give her a call. Michelle offered comforting words and we talked through what our plan for the day would be. When it came time to labor at home, Michelle was in my bedroom, offering massages, water, snacks, and support.

Having Michelle next to me during my entire labor was the ultimate feeling of comfort and support. I would not have had the experience I did had she not been at my side. Even when I had to be transferred from a birthing center to a hospital post-birth, Michelle was right there. She stayed with me in my hospital room into the early morning hours and always had my best interests in mind.

She was my advocate, my support, my comfort, my strength. She helped guide me to finally meet my baby girl. A doula's work is truly magical.
