Testimonials

The mothers who deliver at San Francisco General Hospital are presented with the option to work with a doula during their labor. Here are some things they had to say about the support they received.

No matter what I say it is not enough to thank her for her courage and bravery.​

My doula was there for me on levels that my family was not capable of reaching. I am a 26 year old single parent and did not have the mental and emotional assistance that others may have. My doula coached me through my whole L&D process. She was great and I only hope that others experience the reward of a doula's support.

I was not able to have my family around. My doula made sure that I didn't feel alone - she made me feel like she really cared and for that I love her.

The doula was integral to my two day labor process because she was not only my coach; she was my advocate as well. I also felt a spiritual, if you will, connection with my doula. My doula was so in tune and engaged with my situation. It was overwhelmingly amazing to me that I lucked out the way I did having her by my side.

"

I would like to say many, many thanks and my baby thanks you for everything because he came to this world very happy.

"

We'll always be thankful for having had the opportunity to have someone so knowledgable and calm that made the whole process even more beautiful.

As it stood, I did not need any machines, drugs or other such interventions. What I did need was my doula support.
