Testimonial for Barbie French, CD(DONA), CPD(RI)

I cannot emphasize enough the invaluable support and care I received from my doula, Barbie, during my recent childbirth experience. From the moment my husband and I rushed to the hospital due to unexpected bleeding, to the emergency c-section and the subsequent challenges that arose, Barbie was there every step of the way, providing comfort, guidance, and a sense of calm that I desperately needed.

When we arrived at the hospital, we were immediately met with a whirlwind of tests and the news that we would need an emergency c-section. I was taken aback and unprepared to have my baby so early, with five weeks still to go. At that moment, Barbie was on her way to the hospital, and I only had a brief conversation with her over the phone. However, those few minutes on the phone were enough to remove any fears and doubts that I had. Her soothing words and reassuring presence gave me the strength to face the situation with confidence.

She stayed with me as my husband left to follow our baby to another hospital's NICU, ensuring that I was never alone during this challenging time. And she didn't leave my side until I felt settled and reassured. 

One aspect of Barbie's support that I truly appreciated was her familiarity with the hospital staff and her knowledge of the hospital's layout. It was evident that she had established strong relationships with the medical team, as they expressed their admiration for her during our hospital tour.

Barbie's commitment to my well-being and emotional stability was truly remarkable and made all the difference in turning what could have been a traumatic experience into one of strength and empowerment. I would highly recommend her services to any expectant mother seeking a doula who goes above and beyond to ensure a positive birth journey.
