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

Working with Ryah Jo was one of the best decisions we made in our birth process. We knew we wanted a doula with lots of experience and with a background in medical knowledge should we need assistance in the hospital (we wanted someone who "spoke doctor"). What really won us over on top of this is her expertise in baby and birther positioning. We were planning for a home birth and since it would be unmedicated, I wanted every other type of assistance available to us. It turns out we made the right choice because 23 hours into our labor my contractions were coupling. She watched me through a few then guided us into a new position that allowed the baby to get better placed within my pelvis and the contractions were crisp from them forward. My active labor was about 4 hours and she was right there with me the whole time. It felt like she could feel what I was feeling she was so on it. With her guidance on new positions and taking me through the peaks of my sensations, I was able to just focus on my breath and move through the process without having to think about anything. I can't imagine my birth without her being there - it would have been very different.

I also loved the way she was able to provide support and confidence to my husband. She was as much his doula as she was mine, especially in the weeks leading up to the birth. 

Overall, I consider us very fortunate to have been able to be under her guidance and care for this transformation experience and would 100% bring her in for future births. There's a reason just about every doula, midwife, and OB in Seattle knows her by name. She's a force in the industry and we were lucky to have her on our team.
