Testimonial for Ryah Jo (she/her) Silver CD (PALS) CBE, OMP trained

Ryah was a dream-come-true-of-a-doula for the birth of our daughter, who was born in April! Our first meeting was virtual, and she immediately felt like she was a family member - she got our humor and dished it right back ??, was an overall genuine and loving human. We felt very comfortable with her from the get-go and didn't hesitate to sign on with her. We could tell she was passionate about being a doula, was very knowledgeable, and easily put our nerves to rest. Our next visits were in-person, where she again listened to our concerns, issues, and answered our questions with love, curiosity, and evidence-based answers. Ryah was always quick to respond to texts too - great communication. 
She was hands-on (massage/exercise techniques) and helped my husband (and I) understand what would be happening during labor/birth and gave him a great set of tools to use. She also took photos and videos for us to refer back to, which were really helpful. 

During the labor process itself, she was AMAZING, starting right from when my water broke. Ryah was great at checking-in with us every now and then when I was still in early labor at home, making sure I was doing alright. Once at the hospital, she was an advocate for me to the hospital staff. She knew my preferences and wishes and wasn't afraid to speak up. She wasn't afraid to hop on my hospital bed either LOL (to help with labor exercises and different positions). It even impressed the hospital staff! She was constantly checking in on me, making sure I was hydrated and doing okay. She was comforting, a great listener, and shoulder to cry on, as was my husband - it felt like I had the dream team. Was great she captured a ton of photos and shared with us too, since we were a little preoccupied ??.

My husband and I cannot recommend Ryah enough! She'll definitely be getting a call if I find myself pregnant again :).
