"I am so grateful that my partner and I had Deirdre as our doula for the birth of our first child. Deirdre brought a calm and confident energy to my labor that contributed to a positive birth experience for our family.
We hired Deirdre part-way through the pregnancy and were able to have three prenatal meetings with her. Although I felt I was well-informed on pregnancy and childbirth, I learned new information, resources, and tools from Deirdre at each of our meetings. I felt particularly supported by Deirdre in identifying, practicing, and using comfort measures during my labor. I felt that the topics and information we discussed were always well-tailored to my and my partner's specific needs and concerns. I also appreciated that Deirdre was available by phone/email between our appointments. After the birth, it was so nice to have check-ins from someone who understood and had been a part of our birth experience.
Deirdre is highly professional and evidence-based--- it is apparent that she closely follows new research and developments in women's care and pregnancy. I would recommend her highly for birth doula support!"
