Testimonial Tuesday: A Dad's Perspective on Doula Support
Aaron H, from San Diego, shares about his experience hiring Courtney Scott to support him and his wife during the birth of both of their children:
"Wow! I am at a loss for words to describe the seamless and exceptional experience we had with Courtney. This is our second time using Courtney as our doula, and we would not have had such an easy birth and postpartum experience without her. From the moment we hired Courtney she was there to guide us through the pregnancy, and made sure we were comfortable in the months, weeks, and days before we went into labor. Courtney's real magic comes the moment labor begins. She was present at the very moment we required her comfort. We ended up going into labor during the day and things got tough at night before we went to the hospital. At a moment notice Courtney got in her car and was at our home to help my wife. At the hospital Courtney was with us for the entire twelve plus hours and even came the next day for a follow up. I was amazed how may doctors and nurses knew who Courtney was and had worked with her in the past. All in all we had an amazing experience for the births of both our children - a majority of which we owe to Courtney! She is a breath of fresh air and I would recommend her without hesitation. Also - as a side note - Courtney encapsulated my wife's placenta both times. She takes care of the entire process, and delivers everything two days later. There are a number of doulas in town offering their services - Courtney is a diamond in the rough! Her calm, confident and reassuring demeanor only matches her bright smile and positive zest for life!"
