I wouldn't have made it through without her!
“I cannot recommend Odessa enough! I had thought about a doula in the beginning of my pregnancy but wasn't 100% sure that was the route I wanted. I met Odessa at a breastfeeding class and decided to contact her the next day. She went over everything with me and got rid of any doubts I had. We met up a few times before my son was born. We formed a birth plan and went over all possibilities and questions that I had. When labor started I let Odessa know and labored at home for a while. Odessa continuously checked in and was available anytime I wanted her. She arrived at the hospital shortly after I was admitted and stayed with me for 18 hours. Leaving only after all 3 of us were settled and my son was breastfed successfully. She was ready and willing to help me in any way possible. Recommending different methods to help me push and offering reassuring words through out the delivery process. She came over a few times after we were home to make sure I was meeting my breastfeeding goals and that my mood was okay. Bringing over gifts, educational handouts, and good company. To this day, I seriously swear I wouldn't have made it through without her!"
Odessa advocated for me
"Odessa worked hand in hand with the Midwife...Odessa advocated for me, explaining details...Without Odessa's coaching and guidance I would not have made it through labor...The midwife assisting me commented several times how well I was handling the situation and how supportive Odessa was throughout."
She was full of words of comfort
"She met with us at our house and we went over many things including the questions I had. She left a belly ball, printed handouts and a long piece of fabric to help with labor. She stayed in touch with both of us all through my pregnancy. Always checking in to see if we needed anything or had any questions. When it was finally time to deliver, she was there and ready. She set a relaxing mood with a string of lights and was available to massage me. She was full of words of comfort. She stayed the entire time...She stayed to meet baby Easton and she was so happy and proud. After that, she checked in with me via phone and text. She came over for a visit and brought us a few gifts! It was very comforting to have her there and I would certainly recommend her to other couples."
The midwife commented how supportive Odessa was
"Without Odessa's coaching and guidance I would not have made it through 12 hours of active labor medication free, and three hours of pushing, as well as a midnight emergency C section. The midwife assisting me commented several times how well I was handling the situation, and how supportive Odessa was throughout."
She cares for the whole family
“Odessa is extremely warm, intuitive, and dedicated. If I could give her a 10, I would. She is constantly continuing her birthing and doula education to provide the best up-to-date care. She cares for the whole family...mama, dad and baby(s)!”
