Testimonial for Deborah Perdew

Deborah is an angel. She is a very busy lady. If you need someone who is going to constantly check in on you throughout your pregnancy just be mindful that she is busy. However, if you need anything from Debbie throughout your pregnancy she is happy to make the time for you but you will need to reach out to her first. She has a ton of experience and is one of the top referred doulas in our area! She is very knowledgable, and she welcomes you with open arms from your first interaction/meeting. You will get bombarded with a lot of information, but it's good stuff. You will receive a packet of information (pdf file) of exercises, recipes, advice, etc. The packet is a little unorganized and I ended up rearranging the information so that I could best understand what exercises I should be doing on a daily/weekly basis. But, I am extremely type A and organized so that particular feedback is personal preference.

During the birth experience, Debbie was phenomenal. My goal was a natural birth and I wanted a mother figure in the hospital with my husband and I (given COVID and my relationship with my mother). Deborah's confident demeanor and encouragement were so wonderful during my labor. She did pressure points and constantly encouraged me. I kept saying, "I can't do this", and I remember her always responding, "You are doing it." She held me during contractions and help me rest during the "breaks". After labor, she gave the best foot massage and encouraged me more and more. A few days after labor, she visited to check in, debrief on my birth experience and I received ANOTHER foot and back massage. AMAZING. I felt like a princess and so loved and cared for. She followed up for the first month or two postpartum. Even when I did not respond, she kept reaching out to check on me to the point where she called my husband. I so appreciated being cared for in that way.

If you choose Debbie, you will not be disappointed. She is a God-send in every way!
