My experience with Brittany Revo. Where to even begin?
Brittany is everything I hoped our doula would be, and so much more. From being a trusted resource throughout my wife’s pregnancy, to guiding our pre- and early labor at home. From check in at the hospital (ON Thanksgiving), to navigating a confusing, long, arduous, and at times scary, labor. From delivery, to our postpartum follow up. She was a constant grounding, helpful, and supportive guide. A natal shaman, if you will.
This space is so full of misleading information; the mommy bloggers, the armchair experts, the advice from aunties, the anti-vax MAGA hippies, the boomers who said "we never did that, and your generation survived" - I can’t overstate what a lifesaver it was for us to have Brittany as a wealth of veridical information presented without bias. She would give us all the latest research / information, and always remind us that whatever we wanted to do, she would get behind. She let us know that her job was to provide the facts, and support whatever decision we made based on said facts. She stayed true on that to the letter.
Our baby was born happy and healthy, in accordance to our birth plan, and (due to details I won’t outline here) I don’t think that would have happened without having Brittany in the hospital with us. She was also available to us for postpartum support at home, a couple times a week, for a month - which proved to be another godsend.
While I already miss having her here, I’m truly happy that other expectant parents get to experience the gift that Brittany is.
