What is Virtual Doula Support Like? Hear from These New Parents:
"Our Baby Nest doula was essential to the gentle birth of our 2nd son. Unfortunately, because of COVID-19 hospital restrictions, our doula was limited to a virtual presence. When my water broke and labor began in the middle of the night, she was immediately available via FaceTime. At first, I was worried about the virtual experience, but it worked out wonderfully!
She listened closely to my contractions and provided the necessary support between the surges to give me confidence. At the hospital, my husband set up his iPad and our doula was present for the entire birth. I still felt her presence and she was able to offer guidance.
After the birth, she continued to offer suggestions and advocate for our birth plan. Since the birth, our doula has checked in every day to see how we are doing, answer any questions, and continue to provide support. We are so happy with hiring a Baby Nest doula, and would highly recommend a virtual doula!
During the unprecedented times surrounding the COVID-19 crisis, pregnant mothers need the extra support to navigate the unknowns. Our virtual doula played a vital role in helping us stay calm, reassured, and prepared for our new healthy baby boy. I had a dream labor and delivery.” - Sandy R.
