Testimonial for Valerie Godbout

Valerie is an incredible Doula and any family would be lucky to work with her. She worked with my family for about 3.5 months as a night doula, from my daughter's first night at home. This was my third baby but first time with a night doula and I just can't say enough. I felt completely comfortable with Valerie from the moment I met her, and my daughter loved her too. Valerie had great advice and reminders for me about newborns, but she always shared her knowledge in the most supportive, gentle way and I always felt that she would have respected my wishes if I wanted to do things differently (though honestly I never did, we were always on the same page!). I had the most wonderful post partum experience because of Valerie -- I was sleeping WELL knowing that all I had to do in the early days was pop into the nursery to nurse and then get back to bed, and later on I slept uninterrupred when we got onto a schedule of me pumping before my bedtime so Valerie could feed my daughter with a bottle. I honestly never had any post partum emotional tears or breakdowns I think becasue I was sleeping well and felt like I had really good support (I defintiely cried post partum with my first two). In Val's last two nights at our house she started supporting us through some sleep training at my request.  On the third night of sleep training (our first night without Val) my daughter slept 12 hours with one wake up where she was able to self soothe.  Every baby is different obviously, but I really credit Val with knowing when my daugther was ready and reminding me of the steps to take and giving me the confidence to do it.  I have truly felt like Val is a part of our family (my older kids and husband adore her too!) and we're going to miss not having her in our house daily, but I also know she helped us set up the foundation for a really successful, fun, and peaceful newborn experience. You should hire her :)
