Juthika and Evan, First Time Parents

“We initially met Devon through the Triangle Doula Collective zoom meeting. We had one personal meeting and knew immediately that I want Devon by my side during my birth. My pregnancy had complications that came up in the third trimester and we realized soon enough that I wouldn’t be able to go to labor on my own. In the months leading up to induction, I have found Devon to be extremely thorough in her work taking detailed notes about me and my pregnancy as well as educating us on what to expect during labor. She was always available via text messages/phone. My labor itself was very long and being in the mental state that I was, I texted her to come right away to the hospital. She was there for me at early labor through the period where my labor stalled and all the way going up to the postpartum room. She worked fantastically with the nurses in the hospital always thinking of the positions that I should be placed at for the correct baby’s orientation during the pushing phase. She was our voice to the hospital staff during this difficult time. She was also the voice of reason for me when I had given up on a vaginal birth in the middle of my labor and requested a C-section. Without her and my husband’s motivating words, I don’t think I would have made it through with a vaginal delivery. I also had several post delivery complications and Devon was always by my side asking the right questions to the doctors. In the midst of all the chaos, she also made sure my husband was well rested and well fed. Her postpartum visit after I was back home from the hospital again was full of rich information and she covered multiple topics that made me feel very comfortable and confident.

My husband and I are extremely pleased with the level of service Devon provided to us. We would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who is looking for birthing doula support. To us, she is not just a DOULA, she is a SUPER DOULA! Thanks Devon; we are so grateful.”
