Testimonial for Denise Bolds MSW, CD(DONA) CLC, CBE

 I knew once I got pregnant that I wanted to work with a Doula. I spent time researching & interviewing many hoping to find someone that I connected with. When I found Denise I knew I had found someone special.  She was professional and had a very informative website and a structure that appealed us.

Denise taught us all about labor , provided us with extensive resources that we could review on our own time, helped us develop a comprehensive birth plan and made the experience personal with two home visits. She orchestrated a group chat where we could check in with her and ask questions.

Our interactions with Denise prior to being giving birth were wonderful, but they in no way prepared me for how amazing she would be at the hospital. From the time she walked in (suitcases and materials in hand) we knew she meant business. I was striving for an unmedicated birth and Denise did everything in her power to help me achieve my goals.

Denise worked alongside the hospital staff, my husband , and my mother to ensure that all my needs were met. She helped me navigate and breathe through my contractions and advocated on my behalf if there were any issues.During my labor there were times where I was quite restless and Denise assisted me into various positions until I found some level

Of comfort. She coached me through the use of nitrous oxide and communicated with the hospital staff when necessary.

When it was time for me to start pushing Denise was there to lend a helpful hand. Her and the lead nurse held up my legs while by husband supported my back. For 90 minutes the three of them assisted me in my pushing until my beautiful baby girl entered this world.

Throughout my pregnancy, labor, and post partum Denise was a crucial part of my journey. Providing words of encouragement and assistance every way she could.

I am so thankful for her love and support and would highly recommend her
