Testimonial for Cashew Pendergrass | Holistic Perinatal Care

I chose Cash as my doula because I felt that we had similar values l and I appreciated that she attended many unmedicated births and had had homebirths herself. I felt that she understood what I wanted for my ideal pregnancy and birth and was in support of my decisions for myself and my baby. Cash and I went over my birth plan in detail and we worked through my anxiety around things not going to plan. We also came up with ideas to get labor back on track and avoid medical interventions that I did not want. Cashew supported the decisions I made throughout pregnancy and birth and helped me advocate these to my midwifery team. Cashew regularly checked in with me to see how I was feeling and if I needed any extra support. She helped connect me to a pelvic floor physical therapist, a photographer, and other resources for handling pregnancy aches and pains. Cash always spoke with positivity and confidence. I could tell that she had confidence in me and trusted the birthing process. She took lots of pictures and was very helpful during the first postpartum hours with breastfeeding support, newborn support, and clean up. She was there to help with anything I needed and supported my healing and feeding postpartum. Cashew was always available when I needed support during the early postpartum weeks. She made me feel special by bringing me flowers, lactation snacks, affirmations, self care items, and printed out photos from my birth. Cash always had such a positive energy, was very supportive, empathetic, and never judgmental. She went above and beyond as a doula make me feel supported through my pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. Having a doula offered us extra support and more flexibility for my partner to more present during the birth and early postpartum hours. Cashew always goes above and beyond to make you feel supported and care for. I am very happy I hired a doula and will hire Cashew for my next birth.
