Testimonial for Denise Bolds MSW, CD(DONA) CLC, CBE

Denise Bolds was a God send! The first trimester of our pregnancy was a bit rocky so when looking for a doula we wanted someone who had experience with possible complications. We also wanted someone who understood the nuances of being a black laboring woman and had methods to combat the medical disparity experienced by women of color. Enter Denise with her wealth of experience and no-nonsense advocacy. She presented options I didn't even know we had, provided support and education before we gave birth and most importantly was there to assist in the delivery of our son via medical induction. The postpartum support was one of the most meaningful parts of her service as the sense of being overwhelmed and unsure were mitigated by her ever calm presence. It takes a special skill to form meaningful relationship over zoom (required due to the pandemic), however Denise has this skill in spades because when she appeared in the doorway during labor it was as if we had known each other forever and I felt immediate relief that she was there.

Denise was also a life saver when it came to her breastfeeding support. As a CLC she supported us both with classes before hand and with hands on assistance in getting our baby was well fed after coming home. We are now well on our way to being successfully through "the fourth trimester" and remain eternally grateful for all Denise's knowledge, education, advocacy and support though this process.
