WHAT DAD'S ARE SAYING ABOUT nest bIRTH DOULA:

 

"After our first delivery, we knew we wanted an advocate involved for our second go around.  I knew about midwives, but a doula was something new to me.  I discovered that a part of what they offer is education & information regarding birth.  There's a lot of information & misinformation out there.  Jody was able to cut through all the noise & answer all of our questions.  She also shared options we didn't even realize we had in the hospital.  In today's hospital environment I wanted someone on our team who would be there without question.  Births can happen anytime day or night & you never know who will be there when the time comes.  Nursing staff members can be hit or miss, rotated out, & your OB may be out on vacation, as ours was.

Luckily we had Jody on our team.  My wife went into labor at 1:00am and Jody joined us within the hour. She met us at the hospital & was an enormous help during the delivery.  Without her there, it literally would have been me & a travel nurse I had never met through 90% of the process."

"Having a doula during the birth of our second child eased my mind a lot.  The doula helped keep my wife calm & showed me ways to comfort her.  Most importantly, my wife was was able to have the birth experience she wanted with the help our our doula."   Daddy in Cleveland, TN 2015
