Testimonial for In Joy Birth Collective

I was supported by In Joy Birth Doulas during both of my pregnancies, births, and postpartum recoveries. I tested positive for covid days before I gave birth to my oldest daughter. My planned natural unmedicated calm water birth in a birth center turned into a stressful delivery in a hospital. I felt the birth of my oldest daughter was another delivery on an assembly line of a huge hospital system. Thankfully, I was prepared with my self-education, and the education from my doulas during my pregnancies to make informed decisions about my care and the care of my daughters. Without the support of my doulas, I would have been coerced into medically unnecessary c-sections during both births. The option for a c-section was proposed, but when more time was allotted, and alternative interventions were suggested by my doulas, two natural unmediated births were achieved.
