Testimonial for Arrity Deakin

Arrity was amazing!! We worked with her in preparation for the birth, at our birth, and for postpartum stays so we really got a chance to get to know her well. 

For the birth prep, Arrity helped us cut through the noise and advice thrust at new parents. We had no idea how to set up the house for caring for a newborn or preparing a birthing plan. She was fantastic at guiding us through with kindness, giving us information but not skewing our choices. We felt heard, supported, and respected through every step. 

This carried into the day of the c-section. Arrity met us at the hospital and immediately calmed our nerves. She was with us every step of the way, making sure to step in and help us advocate for our choices. While she wasn't able to come into the operating room, she was waiting for us when we got out and was a crucial set of hands. I struggled to come off of the medications post-surgery so having Arrity there to support my husband as he bonded with our new little one was priceless. I'll never forget Arrity bringing me juice and snacks while my husband could focus on our new baby. Her presence helped get us through the first day of being parents.

We also worked with Arrity for postpartum overnights - the best decision we ever made. I cannot emphasize how much we looked forward to Arrity's visits. Not only did it allow us to get a full night's sleep, refueling our energy for another week, but it allowed my husband and I to go to sleep knowing our child was safe and in great hands. It was the only time we could shut off our new-parent brains from worrying all night. We would wake up to clean bottles and a tidy living room - all better than how we left it. We loved working with Arrity so much that we extended our overnights with her by two more weeks! 

We cannot recommend Arrity enough. She is caring, funny, compassionate and supportive. We love "Aunt Arrity!"
