Testimonial for Colleen Myatt CD/PCD(DOÑA), CLC, PES, ICCE

Colleen was my doula for both of my births. I always knew that I wanted to birth with midwives, in a birth center, and that I wanted a doula. But then, COVID happened, and it was even more crucial to me that I had a doula. I knew that I wanted a doula because birth providers (OBs and midwives alike) can be attending multiple births at a time. And even if they aren't, they are there mainly for the medical aspect of the birth. They aren't necessarily going to be caring for you and coaching you through the birth. I wanted a natural birth but I wasn't 100% confident in my ability to accomplish that and knew that having a doula would greatly increase my odds. I'd always pictured my birth experience to include my husband actively participating, and my mom present. But then, COVID. My mom couldn't attend, only a doula and my husband. Colleen was the perfect fit. She 100% provided that motherly attention. Even before the big day she went above and beyond to provide support with her pre-natal support group and two pre-natal educational meetings 1:1. She was also always checking in on me and gave me so many resources to be ready physically and mentally for labor. Then when I was laboring she was the perfect support person - she had already shown my husband how he could support me and she was there to coach him how to be helpful. Without her I think I might have even had a hospital transfer the first time - she kept my husband and I calm by keeping us informed and reassured, knew when to bring the midwives in to assess, but also knew when to step in and suggest different positions to try when things were stalled to give me the best chance for a natural delivery without transfer. She provided the perfect motherly care and support without having my real mother there. She even spoon-fed me after my daughter was born! I had two succssful, comfortable, natural births during a global pandemic largely because of her wonderful care. She is who you want as your support person!
