Testimonial for Grace Lape CD(DONA)

I truly feel like there are no words to describe the absolute gift Grace is as a doula, but I’ll try. Grace was present for both of my son’s births. Soon after I found out I was pregnant with my first, I started thinking about having an unmedicated birth but I was pretty intimidated, and I knew I needed a doula. Grace was the 2nd doula I interviewed and we clicked instantly. She was experienced, sweet, calm, relatable and she made me laugh! Something about her just made me feel so secure, like I was talking to my best friend. She really showed her confidence in me which helped me tremendously. Her guidance in my pregnancy was absolutely amazing, and I knew I picked the right girl to be my side in labor. Little did I know what the complete Godsend she was going to be. I went into labor late on a Friday night and my son wasn’t born until Monday morning… and you know what? She was by my side the ENTIRE time, including both times I got sent home from the hospital. I decided to get an epidural after they gave me pitocin because I was so exhausted after not sleeping and laboring for 3 days. Even with the epidural, Grace continued to work with me to help me get in a comfortable position while also supporting baby's positioning. Fast forward to our post partum home visit, where Grace encouraged me to see a lactation consultant after hearing about my difficult  experience of breastfeeding, which ended up making all the difference. Here I am 2 years later with a second baby boy in my arms who Grace also helped enter the world! And once again, she was by my side through it all. She helped me advocate my birth plan when it was challenged by hospital staff, and she encouraged me relentlessly until our son was born, with no need for an epidural. I don’t even want to imagine my births without Grace. She is everything you could ever dream of out of a doula. We love her dearly and consider her part of our family.
