Testimonial for Debbie Castelbuono

There are not enough words to describe how wonderful it was to have Debbie every step of the way, through my pregnancy and through labor and delivery she was instrumental in me feeling confident and in control. My husband and I chose Debbie as our Doula because of her hands on pain management techniques, her years of experience, and when we spoke with her we felt she would be there for us 100%.

The prenatal visits we fantastic. As first time parents there was so much we didn't know and her visits calmed those nerves immediately. We felt comfortable discussing everything.

Once I had contractions that were progressing, Debbie came right over to our house. I labored at home for 5hrs- she was right next to me the entire time helping me with pain management with massages. She helped us determine when to go to the hospital and was by our side from the minute we got there until we welcomed our son! Debbie and my husband were an incredible support, making sure I stayed hydrated and fed and literally supported me while I pushed (4.5hrs of pushing, they never faltered!) When we discussed our birthing wishes with Debbie, one of our wishes was to have minimal to no medications or interventions. Debbie helped advocate that for me while I was in labor - we successfully made it through with no medications and I owe so much of that to her hands on support and words of encouragement. When the doctor presented me with the option to have my son suctioned, she helped me confidently and comfortably decide that was the right choice in that moment. Debbie stayed with us after labor to make sure he latched successfully and to make sure we were okay. It was close to 11pm when she left, a much longer day than expected but she never showed hesitation with her dedication to us.

Debbie is exceptional and with her support we had the confidence we needed every step of the way. We love you, Debbie! Thank you for joining our family in this special way.
