“She is worth EVERY PENNY!”
Shana was an absolute godsend! I cannot recommend her enough. I never would have made it through my unmedicated childbirth without her. Her calm presence, effective coaching, and responsive to my needs was invaluable. Moreover, her ability to work seamlessly with my husband and the hospital medical staff was critical to my birthing process and impressive to watch. She is worth EVERY PENNY!
“I made the right choice”
Admittedly, I thought it would be really awkward to bare my soul and body to a total stranger. But from the moment I met our doula, I knew I made the right choice: she was patient, understanding, kind, funny, but above all else, passionate and fiercely determined (even when I wasn’t): she made me believe I could give birth to another baby without the fear. I’ll never (willingly) have another baby without a doula again!
“Saved us from a lot of Googling!”
My husband and I took the child-birthing series and the newborn class with DOB. We felt like we knew everything the doctors told us when I was getting induced and while in labor. Because of our knowledge and confidence we gained with DOB, doctors and nurses kept telling us they were surprised this was our first child. We highly recommend the newborn class. It saved us from a lot of Googling (which will lead to a ton of contradicting ideas and misinformation)!
The ‘Baby 101: 4th Trimester’ class was excellent! It was a great opportunity for both moms and dads to talk about and try out the basics of baby care and ask questions about the post-partum period.
Really enjoyed my experience with Doulas of Baltimore. Excellent support when we brought our baby home. Highly recommend!
I cannot say enough positive things about Doulas of Baltimore. Our doula was FANTASTIC. And the classes they offer (especially birth basics) were so informative. Highly recommend!
“I feel much more informed”
The Childbirth Series class was fantastic! The content was relevant and I feel much more informed about the stages of childbirth and post partum. Good mix of classroom style content in a laid back style that left plenty of room for questions and an interactive approach. I would recommend highly!
Our doula was amazing! She helped guide us to resources and information regarding birth preferences and approaches as we prepared for the arrival of our first child and respected and supported our decisions. Throughout labor she offered her knowledge and comfort measures which was beyond helpful. The genuine care offered by Doulas of Baltimore will be forever a part of our son’s birth story.
“My choices were validated”
I highly recommended Doulas of Baltimore! Everything changed for the better the moment my doula walked in the room. She was present, calm, and attentive throughout. What I most appreciated was her objective and informed knowledge which help me feel like my choices were validated. She provided excellent care and support to both me and my husband. She was practical, logical, understanding and empathetic. Overall, our doula seemed to know just what to do at all the right moments and we truly would not have had the experience did without her.
I feel like every woman, no matter her situation, should have a postpartum doula. I was instantly comfortable with our doula in my home and with my baby. She was like a maternal Mary Poppins, helping me with all the work of new motherhood and teaching me along the way. I got so much comfort just from knowing she was coming. I cannot recommend this service and this agency more!
“A calm, steady force”
Our doula and the whole Doulas of Baltimore team were amazing. I can’t recommend their services enough. She was a calm, steady force during my delivery and helped us navigate a very stressful situation. They also provided excellent postpartum services, giving me and my husband much needed sleep and peace of mind. They are kind, professional and attentive.
“Definitely worth the investment”
I recently attend the Birth Basics class from Doulas of Baltimore. It was definitely worth the investment and helped us feel much more prepared for our labor and delivery. The information about the birth process and comfort measure techniques especially was extremely helpful. This is a great class for expecting parents who like to know all of the options ahead of time in order to make betters decisions for their family in the moment.
Really enjoyed my experience with DOB. Excellent support when we brought our baby home. Highly recommend!
