Testimonial for Asha Thomas

I began my search for a doula because my husband and I do not have family nearby and I was looking for a support person who could help me through the journey of giving birth. Asha was an immediate fit and I found her to be a very calm and reassuring presence. She prepared us for the birth using both in person and virtual sessions as the COVID situation was evolving.

On the day my daughter was born, Asha arrived at the hospital just as my contractions were beginning to intensify. She calmly prepared the room with soft lighting and music because she knew I had wanted a home birth and did her best to create that safe space for me. She even covered the clock so I would stop obsessing over the length of the labour!

She was the perfect balance of support for both me and my husband and seemed to instinctively know how to balance the situation. She communicated our wishes to the hospital staff and took over when I wasn't able to communicate once the birth progressed.

I am so grateful that Asha was there for us and she supported us in ways we really could not have anticipated. After the birth the nurses commented that she was one of the best doulas they had seen. She visited us postpartum and answered all my questions and even provided  recommendations on breastfeeding. 

A few days later, Asha shared a few photos she took while I was in labour and right after our daughter arrived. I wasn't even aware she was taking them at the time but I cherish those photos now because they are a keepsake of the day. I was so out of it at the end and they are a comfort now that allow us to relive the best parts of the birth.

We would highly recommend Asha for her calming presence, her knowledge and for the above and beyond support she provided both before and after the birth. Meeting Asha and having her be a part of this journey was the best decision we made and we are ever thankful!
