When you’re pregnant you focus a great deal of energy on preparing for the birth of your child. You go to classes and research all aspects of the labor and birth process and spend countless hours worrying about it. Turns out, that was the easy part. I recently gave birth to twins and when it came time to discharge me from the hospital I found myself asking the nurses, “are you sure?” Would they really trust my husband and I with these two little lives?! We went home a new family of four and those first three weeks were a blur. The two of us were a team and we were surviving the hard moments so that we could enjoy the good moments. When he went back to work after three weeks I started panicking. Juggling two infants is a daunting task. On the second day home alone I found myself calling my lactation consultant to admit that I needed a postpartum doula as she had strongly recommended. She sent me to NOVA Birth services and that Friday Robin walked into my home. I had been nervous at the thought of someone in my house potentially judging me for my lack of housekeeping abilities (newborn twins?!) but Robin instantly put me at ease. She immediately helped burp and change babies as I tandem breastfed and helped boost my confidence in my own abilities. Robin came three times a week for a month and it made a world of a difference. She helped me get the babies on a better schedule during the day so that they would sleep longer at night. Robin was able to teach me about my breast pump and helped introduce bottles to the babies as well so that I can eventually go back to work. Every piece of knowledge that she imparted was delivered in a manner of a friend giving advice. Never did I feel judged or like I was being lectured. Robin simply offered support to help me be a mother (and shower too!?!). I appreciate all that she has done for me to support me as a woman and as a mother. This experience really helped me and my family make that transition from simply surviving to truly thriving. - Lisa P. (1/22/2019)
Robin instantly put me at ease
Jennifer was an absolute rock star during my labor
Knowledgeable, professional, amazing, and exactly what my husband and I needed from our Doula. Jennifer was an absolute rock star during my labor at INOVA Fairfax and I can not recommend her highly enough. Her presence and help is why my labor went as well as it did. I 100% believe that without her we would have had a very different outcome (and less of the experience that I wanted). She knew what we wanted, provided helpful suggestions while also supporting our wishes, during labor she anticipated my/our needs beautifully, helped manage the process, and made sure that I got what I needed when I needed it. We were in great hands! - Nicole D. (10/26/2018)
I highly recommend Andrea for your prenatal/postnatal experience. From our first phone conversation, we were warmly welcomed and provided a continuous flow of information and assistance throughout our experience. She is very informative and hands on. Most importantly, I had extreme anxiety regarding labor. As soon as Andrea showed up at the hospital, my nerves were eased tremendously. She immediately jumped into action and stayed with me throughout the entire experience. We were able to experience an unmedicated natural birth. My husband really enjoyed that she was there to assist in ways that he couldn’t. She followed up post birth as well. She genuinely cares about the family as a whole and it shows through her actions. Without a doubt, we had an A+ experience!!! - Teakora Stewart (11/1/2018)
it was a wonderful experience!
As a first time mom I wasn't quite sure what to expect for the birth of my baby, but Jennifer was with me through the pregnancy and a huge support during the birth for both me and my husband. My goal was to have an unmedicated/natural labor and birth, but when my midwives suggested pitocin after my water broke and contractions weren't starting on their own, I was so nervous! Jennifer helped me through the nerves and difficult contractions-- it was a wonderful experience! - Jessica Kelly (9/27/2018)
