Testimonial for Jade Passamonte

First, the collective model- Having a collective means you are supported by a community of strong, supportive, smart women instead of just one person. It took the pressure off of finding a "perfect doula"-- instead I had three unique and knowledgable doulas (Bailey, Jade and Kate) who worked so well together to help me feel confident and in control of my choices before, during and after birth (+ Jessica for lactation support!).

My partner and I hired this collective about 2 months before my due date. They supported us with every little question around 3rd trimester discomfort, helped us navigate switching OB providers to someone supportive of natural birth, supported a late decision to plan a home birth (and recommended an excellent midwife) and crucially for me, calmly navigated complications around delivery the day before my baby was born which landed us back in the hospital. 

At 40+6 I had a biophysical profile which showed that we couldn’t have a home birth and needed to go to the hospital that evening. Kate, Jade and Bailey helped me understand the situation and options, advocate for myself and calm my nerves and anxiety. They helped us ask the right questions, relax and have a safe, medication free birth at the hospital, ultimately not too different than what we had planned. 

Kate joined us at the hospital. With the collective model, I had a choice (assuming they were available)-- honestly I would have been comfortable with any of the doulas because of their continual support to that point. She was so patient, calming, comforting- I really do not have the proper words to describe her support. We trusted her completely and she kept me focused and calm through labor to the moment I met my daughter.

We feel so lucky that these women were part of our birth story and are grateful to be part of their community. I would recommend Whole Mama Wellness to anyone without hestitation.
