Testimonial for Ryah Jo (she/her) Silver CD (PALS) CBE, OMP trained

Ryah was an amazing doula, and I’m so glad we worked with her. I was drawn to Ryah because I thought she would be a good coach for me during labor and because of her training in Spinning Babies/baby positioning. Both of these things proved to be true. With her help and the laboring we did at home, I arrived at the hospital and was 9cm dilated. Both at home and in the hospital, she offered recommendations for positions that helped move my baby down. She also helped make the hospital room more comfortable – such as asking the staff to turn down the lights. My pushing phase ended up being multiple hours, but she helped me stay calm and focused throughout. There were some complications at the end which were the only moments I felt truly scared and out of control. Ryah was so present and with me in those moments – it brings tears to my eyes when I remember it. Afterward (both that day, and in a postpartum home visit) she talked through the events of the birth with us, which helped me make sense of all that had happened and gave me a greater sense of peace about the birth.  

Other benefits of working with Ryah: she’s very responsive, she offers a breastfeeding mini-class which was really informative, and she took beautiful photos during the labor and birth that captured the experience so well.
