Testimonial for Deborah Perdew

Working with Debbie has been absolutely amazing, I wouldn't have been able to have the birth of my dreams without her. Her support from first contact through postpartum has been unwavering, and is exactly what I was looking for in a doula. I contacted Debbie about her doula services shortly after finding out I was pregnant, and was able to begin preparing with her right away. Over the course of my pregnancy Debbie was there to educate me on physioligical birth, methods to prepare my mind and body for labor and delivery, ways to prepare my husband, standard hospital policies/procedures (and my options), and pain management techniques for labor. Debbie checked in on me regularly throughout pregnancy, and answered any questions I had. I ended up needing to be induced due to gestational hypertension - Debbie educated me on the induction process, and was there for me every step of the way. In labor Debbie worked tirelessly to ensure that I was comfortable, felt safe, and used her expertise to get me into positions that helped my baby to be in optimal position. She helped keep my mind in labor-land, and was able to gently pull me back when my mind started to drift to a fearful and doubting place. I knew going into my induction that the process would be smooth, and I would be safe because I had Debbie by my side. Debbie also has a good relationship with the nurses and doctors at Virginia Baptist, so there was never a worry of her butting heads with providers. Since giving birth Debbie has stayed in contact to ensure both baby and I are doing well. Throughout the entire process Debbie made me feel loved and cared for, I never felt like "just a client" to her. If you're looking for a doula in the Lynchburg area I recommend hiring Debbie hands down.
