Testimonial for Ryah Jo (she/her) Silver CD (PALS) CBE, OMP trained

Ryah Jo is an incredibly experienced, compassionate and personable doula. She supported us through two births and I am so glad we had her! There are so many amazing things to share. One reason we loved working with her is that she worked really well both with my husband and I, but also the midwives and nurses. She supported by husband in supporting me by teaching and coaching him through the coping techniques. Together they took turns and worked in tandem to help me through contractions. In addition, she communicated clearly and directly with the hospital team. She framed questions to me in ways that made me feel heard and supported and then helped communicate my wants and needs to the staff. She also helped me understand my options in ways that felt managable. She really took us through the births one step at a time. For my most recent birth, I've told everyone that Ryah completely saved my birth. I was induced at 40+6 and was feeling really disappointed and discouraged about that decision by my midwives. The induction was stalled out at about 20 hours and they wanted to break my waters to get things moving and at that point I'd given up all hope of being able to labor on my own, but Ryah Jo arrived and within the hour I was in full blown labor. She knew the positions and movements to try to get labor going and it worked. She really listened to my revised birth wishes and helped make them happen, I had exactly the birth I wanted. And through all that she captured beautiful photos and videos during both births (some while holding a leg to help with pushing!) that we will treasure forever. I *highly* recommend Ryah Jo, I felt so deeply held and supported during my births with her.
