Testimonial for Betty Wright

In Fall of 2019, i found out i was pregnant with my second child. Betty was in California and i was in MA, but she offered to be my doula via phone and zoom calls as well as offering to fly out in early April when the baby was due.

During those frightening early months of the pandemic and the end of my pregnancy, Betty was a stalwart presence in my life. She coached me through several nervewracking scenarios (an early labor scare and sudden weight loss in the third trimester) with her trademark humor and gravity.

When it came time to deliver my baby, it wasn't anything like the peaceful birth i had planned. I was induced at 41 weeks in an empty hospital room with my husband, both of us masked. 

But Betty was there on my phone every step of the way. I texted with her frequently, giving her updates, and confiding my anxieties. She was always available to chat and support me.

When the misoprostol kicked in my labor shocked me with both its intensity and speed. I ended up delivering my beautiful, healthy son in forty five exciting minutes.

In the days following the birth the isolation of the pandemic was the most difficult thing to surmount, but I had Betty as my lifeline. She was on call any time i needed her day or night. She got me through the horribly lonely hormonal fluctuations, the crash course of being a mother to a newborn and a preschooler, and the navigation of those long days and nights of early motherhood that were both painfully familiar and wildly foreign.

Betty is an incredibly knowledgeable support to have on your team during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. She advocates for mothers with science and reason, then is happy to switch gears when you just need someone to fiercely be on your side.

I cannot recommend her highly enough, whether you are an experienced mother or a brand new one. She's got you.
