Testimonial for Evana Cooper, BA, CD AMANI

Evana was the recommended doula by my OB/GYN, and I am so glad we could work with her. Her calming presence and evidence-backed methods made my husband and I feel so supported and as prepared as we could be ahead of the birth of our first child. From our first phone call we felt trust in her. She provided us with articles so we could be fully informed on making decisions on my prenatal care, birth plan, and care for our baby once she was born. She shared her own opinions without bias, so we felt any decision we made would be supported. For example, I especially felt supported by her in my decision to have an epidural - she let me know what I could expect and both the potential pros and cons of getting one. When I had to schedule an induction, I felt so much more prepared with Evana's walkthrough of what to expect than I did when I asked my OB. My husband and I felt empowered in making decisions about my care, the birth experience, and our baby's care thanks to Evana's understanding of and experience with hospital births.

Due to my due date being close to when Evana would be traveling, from the beginning she set us up with a backup doula, Vanessa, so we could be comfortable with another doula as well in the event that Evana couldn't make it. We could not express our appreciation more of Evana being so proactive in preparing us for that possibility, and we ended up having a doula 'team' ahead of the birth where we felt like a priority for both of them. It turned out that baby came while Evana was away, and the transition to Vanessa felt completely natural and seamless. Both Evana and Vanessa came to our home a few days after our daughter's birth for our postpartum followup, and were an incredible resource and moral support as I struggled with breastfeeding. I would absolutely recommend Evana as a doula to any of my friends in the future. Thank you so much!
