Testimonial for Saltwater Doula LLC - @saltwaterdoulanh

From a husband’s perspective, I never thought I would be ok with using a Doula, but after our first two births ended in c-sections, and we found out we were pregnant with our third, we decided we would hire a doula to help try for a VBA2C. We found Ashley through DONA, and after our initial zoom meeting, we immediately felt like she was an understanding and excellent resource that we could trust.

Throughout the pregnancy, Ashley's was always available as a resource. When my wife went over her due date and we were told we needed to schedule an induction, Ashley helped us work through asking the right questions so we could figure out what the best options were to give us our best chance at a successful outcome.

My wife’s third labor was long, and throughout it all Ashley was indispensable. I know that I could not have provided all the support my wife needed over what was a 26 hour labor without having Ashley to back me up. She was a wealth of knowledge that helped us remember our goals and ask the right questions to help us get there. She was also a much needed set of skilled helping hands who gave my wife support, particularly when I needed a break. When it seemed like the labor was stalling, Ashley helped my wife labor in many different positions that I have no doubt helped the labor finally progress, and ultimately end in a successful VBA2C.

This third labor shared many of the same characteristics of our first two. What was different with this third birth is that we had Ashley. She was a steadfast and trustworthy resource, especially during labor. She never overstepped, and I never felt like she was “replacing” me, which is something that had kept me from considering a Doula in the past. Without her help, I do not think we would have had the result that we did. To any dad who is hesitant about using a Doula, I would wholeheartedly recommend Ashley. I am certainly glad we found her.
