Testimonial for Deborah Perdew

I wanted my second labor to be different from the first one. And Debbie made that possible. First one was full of fear. Second one, with help of Debbie, was a redemptive experience. She genuinely cared and provided necessary information to help my husband and I make the best educated and informed decisions possible for both baby and I. She taught us how to stretch, do Revozo, and how my husband could help. She explained the why's behind everything she taught us. I started to overcome the fear and got excited to experience the joy of birth this time. Debbie walked us through the pre labor stage while we stayed at home. I wanted to labor at home as much as possible, so it was wonderful she was available on the phone guiding us on what to do during early labor. When it was time, she was quick to meet us at the hospital (as that was where I felt safe to give birth). My contractions got so strong when I arrived at the hospital that I couldn't even walk out of the elevator quickly, and she was so so patient with me and encouraging. She prayed with us during labor, massaged my back, and said just the right things at the perfect times to empower me and help me get through the pain of contractions. She helped me change positions to help baby get in the right position. Within about an hour upon the arrival at the hospital, just after a couple pushes, my baby was in my arms. I will never forget that sweetest moment. The day after birth, she came back to check on us (including a massagemy to help with postpartum). She honestly still has been checking on me (I gave birth in November 2021 so it's been over three months) and I love that. The relationship you build, the care you get that is genuine, and the knowledge/experience Debbie has, you cannot compare them with any other doula experiences you may get anywhere else. I will definitely work with Debbie again if God gives our family another child.
