Testimonial for Emerald Doulas

My number one recommendation for friends expecting in the Triangle area is to work with the team at Emerald Doulas. Melanie and the team have supported my family through two births now, and I can’t imagine going through pregnancy/birth/postpartum without them by our side.

 


Melanie and Vanessa were my birth doulas this time, with Melanie supporting the birth itself. Melanie was such a calming presence in the birth, actively helping me through contractions, talking through my feelings and fears during the birth, supporting me through natural labor, and assisting with breastfeeding after my son was born. There are so many things that I think we assume the hospital staff would do that Melanie took on — I truly can’t imagine what it would have been like without her there.

 


We also worked with Whit and Tali from the sibling doula team. They were fantastic. We ended up having family in town and we didn’t call Whit and Tali to help with our older child, but they were super helpful leading up to the birth and also after the birth providing resources and insights to help us assist our daughter transitioning to her new role as big sister.

 


The whole team provided really excellent emotional support throughout my pregnancy and weighed in with helpful information leading up to the birth, as well as after.

 


I am a huge fan or Emerald Doulas and would recommend working with them to anyone.
