Testimonial for Saltwater Doula LLC - @saltwaterdoulanh

The hospital I gave birth at uses a team approach and I was free to schedule prenatal appointments with any provider I wanted but the doctor who would deliver me depended on who was on shift when I went into labor so there was a chance I would never have met him or her before. I was totally fine with this but it's what made me want to hire a doula because I wanted someone in the delivery room who knew me, knew my birth plan and who my husband and I knew. We found Ashley and she was amazing! My labor and delivery didn't go how I had envisioned it. I ended up being induced which made labor progress very hard and fast and despite being in the most pain of my life I remember Ashley being there and she had the essential oil inhalers, and she was rubbing my back and providing enough distraction to get me through. My husband was great but having her there was amazing for him too since this was our first and we were both a little shell shocked :) She offers to take pictures of the birth, which I didn't want, but she did take a few immediately after birth which I love because without her there they are moments we would not have captured. She was always available and checking in on me during my pregnancy, she was an amazing support person to have during labor and delivery, and she's been available and completely supportive since I have been postpartum. I struggled with breast feeding but having Ashley was such a relief. She was encouraging, she provided tips, and she reassured me I was doing a good job when I felt like I wasn't. She is very knowledgeable and has so many resources to offer before, during and after pregnancy. I can't say enough great things and I highly recommend her. I am very hopeful that she will be able to be my doula for my next baby. Thank you, Ashley!
