Hello! My name is Michelle and I’m writing to you regarding Debbie Sokolow’s doula services. My first labor was over seven years ago. My husband and I were confident that we knew what to expect when giving birth. We quickly learned we had no idea what it entailed! my husband was a nervous wreck, feeling so hopeless about how he could help. He didn’t feel he was able to be as supportive as he thought he would be because he was worried about so many things. I went into labor naturally and all of a sudden they told me they were giving me pitocin to “speed things up”. Well apparently that combined with the epidural could slow things down as well. Next thing I knew I was in for a 21 hour labor. I was pushing HARD for hours and we could not get him out. Eventually when the dr threatened c section I gave the ultimate push and got my baby out! Once we got home, my baby and I had so much trouble getting the breastfeeding going. I quickly had to get a lactation specialist over! Fast forward three children later and there’s a lot i would do differently. ?? Hiring Debbie as my doula made my labor and postpartum experience completely different. She was a support for me as well as my husband! She guided me through both labors,step by step, so that I could give birth in the way I felt comfortable in. She was able to provide me with positions and exercises so i didn’t have to push for hours on end. She was a constant guidance and had the loving support only a mother could give! She came by after delivery to check on the baby and I and she stayed to perfect our latch and even swaddling the baby! I just can’t recommend her more! Please email me if you have any hesitations at all!
My husband and I were looking for an affordable doula to take part in the birth of our first child. We are so grateful we found Dolly through a recommendation. This awesome and professional woman went above and beyond the call of duty, never leaving my side for the entire 32 hours of my labor. I can honestly say if it weren't for her, I would have probably been coerced into having a c-section. She is amazing, caring, kind and just about the sweetest person I've ever met!
I cannot say enough good things about her, and would recommend her to anybody looking for great support during and after birth. We feel like she is part of our family and if we decide to have another child, I could not think of anyone better to assist than she.
Love you Dolly!!
Nick, Yo, & Aramis
