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

Ryah was unbelievably helpful and supportive before, during and after our labor. She connected with us immediately when we first met her, and we appreciated her guidance immensely in the weeks leading up to birth. She checked in with us regularly to understand what kind of birth experience we wanted, and help us understand what options were available and the pros and cons of each. As we got closer, she helped us deal with the discomfort of late pregnancy by guiding us through exercises to relieve strain on the back and hips. She was always available to help and reassure us through whatever we were going through. When we went into labor, her help became truly invaluable - I honestly can't imagine going through this process without her. When she arrived, our labor was progressing slowly, and she immediately could tell that the problem was that our baby was still slightly rotated, making it difficult for him to engage fully into the birth canal. To correct this, she performed a minor painless manoever to nudge baby in to place, and our labor accelerated immediately. She coached us through the remaining home labor, got us into the car right on time, and helped advocate for us to receive care according to our birth plan when we arrived at the hospital. She had a solution for every challenge, and the tools she pulled out of her bag (TENS unit, spiky pressure ball) were "small" but made all the difference for my wife, especially during the car ride to the hospital. When my wife couldn't get out of the labor tub, Ryah told her immediately how to breathe to help her get out. Critically, she took care of us and everything going on around us, allowing us to focus entirely on our birth experience. Ryah was just an indispensable part of our labor - believe me when I say working with her was the single most impactful decision we made that helped us get what we wanted from our birth. She's the best. And gosh, the pictures and video she sent us afterward were perfect!
