Our time with Joey was one that brought me confidence and understanding to my birthing experience. Her knowledge and expertise made me less fearful and more confident heading into our labor and delivery. As a first time mom I felt like she gave me a voice when communicating with my doctor and nurses, and we are so grateful!
I definitely recommend using Joey as your doula, if I could do it all over again I would have hired her sooner!
A NEW FAMILY
When I found out I was pregnant I was terrified of the birthing process. I didn't know what to do, how to prep, or how to learn. After a couple months, I asked my sister about a birth plan. She and her husband started telling us about Joey and the help she had given them. Immediately my husband and I wanted to meet her. We started childbirth classes and almost immediately my fear started melting away. Joey taught us both so much about pregnancy, child birth, and caring for your newborn, we even learned infant CPR. I wasn't scared anymore. I felt equipped to make our son's birth just that, OUR birth, not just do whatever the doctor says but have an experience that is personal, special, and safe. That was just the beginning. Joey was with us at the hospital during a very long birth. Her strength, attentiveness, and the way she worked with our doctor was wonderful. My husband and I wholeheartedly recommend Birthing Miracles.
A NEW ADVENTURE
Joey was AMAZING to work with. My labor was nothing short of fast and intense and this made me absolutely terrified, until Joey arrived. Joey pushed me to do things I didn't want to and NEVER made me feel uncomfortable or that my wishes were not being met. Joey really tries to get to know a mother's wishes or labor and delivery and makes sure those are accommodated. I felt so empowered and had an amazing birth experience because of Joey coming to my rescue.
MORE than just the time in the hospital, Joey checked in on us after this new bundle of joy was here to make sure that I had all the help I needed and I was being cared for. So many times, people ask only about how the baby is doing and forget that the mother isn't going to bounce up and be 100% in a few hours. The care before and after was something I didn't expect, but was a wonderful surprise!
Hands down I would recommend Joey to any of my friends or family who are expecting.
