Testimonial for Deborah Perdew

Hiring Debbie as my doula was the best choice of my entire pregnancy. My husband and I are convinced that without her, the birth of our son would have ended in a C-Section. Debbie was my bulldog and my advocate when I could no longer advocate for myself. Through this process Debbie became a part of our family forever, she is more than just a doula. Quite honestly I wouldn't want to have another child without her! 

I had many pregnant friends who told me that I did not "need" a doula and that I should rely on my husband during this process... let me tell you what... Debbie truly brought my husband and I closer together during this process. She coached both of us and we felt so much more prepared and empowered going into the birth of our son. Debbie helped my husband to feel useful when in reality without her he would have felt helpless. My husband truly amazed me during the birth of my son and I know it's because Debbie gave him the right tools. Debbie was such an encouragement to both of us during a very hard birth. 

I am so thankful that I listened to God when he opened the door to hire Debbie as opposed to my friends. Those friends later told me they wished they had hired Debbie after we compared experiences and plan to hire her in the future. I went into the birth of my son being open minded about an epidural. I prepped my body to do it naturally but due to unforseen circumstances I did choose an epidural. Debbie never once made me feel bad about about my open mindedness, in fact she encouraged it, which took me by surprise. I had many people "warn" me about doulas and their pushiness to do things naturally. Debbie made it clear that she was there for me and what was best for me! 

The birth of my son ended in the most amazing and empowering way when it started off very badly due to Doctors not caring about my traumatic past. I cannot say enough about Debbie as she was a true light in a very dark place for me.
