Testimonial for Mathilde Bourgon

Short of the decision to have a child in the first place, hiring Mathilde as both a birth and postpartum doula was probably the best decision my husband and I made in our journey to becoming parents. She has been there for us through deciding whether or not to induce labor, labor itself, an emergency c-section, the postpartum experience, and, most recently, sleep training. Here are the things I love most about Mathilde: 1) She is supportive of the choices you make. She doesn't push for natural birth, breastfeeding, etc. She is simply there to support you in the birth, postpartum and parenting experience you want. 2) Any recommendations she makes are evidence-based, and she will send you her sources. 3) She is French and provides a perspective outside of just U.S. norms and practices. My husband and I have LOVED learning about French/European perspectives on different elements of parenting. (For example, parents in Europe as a whole seem to do a better job of finding balance as a family and not making absolutely everything revolve around the baby.) 4) As a mom herself, she can share a lot from her own experiences. We asked for recommendations on so many things (formula, diaper bags, sleepsacks, you name it), and we have loved everything Mathilde has recommended. She has saved us hours of research. 5) Mathilde is a genuine, lovely person. I have appreciated how caring and funny she is. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
