“Becky was ready to go when we needed her and used many techniques to keep me as calm as possible during labor, and helped my husband know how to help too. She was a knowledgeable and compassionate companion for an intense labor, and even went out and got us some Chipotle after all was said and done. We don’t know how it would’ve gone without her there with us, but we don’t want to know!”
“The Piedmont Doulas team is incredible. Every person delivering a child truly should have doula support, and these women are exceptional at what they do. Beyond the birth planning and experience, the postpartum community that Becky facilitates has been incredible. It is such a special group of parents and I draw on their collective expertise at least weekly. I can’t recommend Piedmont Doulas enough. I promise you will never regret adding them to your birth team!
“I can not recommend the Piedmont
Doulas enough. As a first time
Mom, they were tremendously helpful for me leading up to the birth of my son and during labor and delivery. With Covid, the childbirth and newborn classes taught by Becky were virtual and they were still fun and informative. My husband was skeptical of the classes and we ended up both looking forward to them every night and learned so much. Thanks to them I went into birth feeling confident and informed.
When I started laboring at home in the middle of the night, the doula team picked up the phone and talked my husband through helping me until we were ready for them to come to our home.
We had Margo with us for labor and delivery but I would have felt confident with any of them. Margo was extremely helpful in labor and delivery, by physically helping me when I was in pain and by talking through options when there were decision points during labor. I felt like I had an informed friend there advocating for me. My husband and I both agreed that it was money well spent (they should probably charge more for all they provide) and if I have another baby I will definitely hire them again.
“We were extremely happy with our experience with Piedmont Doulas. We felt supported by them from the initial interview and then all the way through our daughter’s birth. Becky is a veritable guru of all things baby and birth in the Triad, and she leads an incredible team. Before the birth, whenever we had questions, they had answers. During the birth, Margo’s was indispensable; we likely would have ended up having a c-section if it weren’t for her calm and knowledge and physical support. After the birth, they checked in with us and continued to help us navigate our new role as parents (for example, offering suggestions for baby photographers when we realized that getting that set up had slipped our minds!). Especially being new to the area, their recommendations and connections were a huge help. We cannot recommend them highly enough!”
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Piedmont Doulas professionally for five years first as an L&D nurse, and more recently as a midwife. They are kind, compassionate and knowledgeable. Their goal is to help you navigate pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum with a little more ease of mind, body and grace than you might otherwise do! They are excellent at what they do. Piedmont Doulas has worked really hard to establish good relationships with the local childbirth professionals which helps them help you even more! I’ve also had the pleasure of sitting in on Becky’s childbirth education classes and to see the huge impact these classes have made for my patients in terms of the preparation for birth and beyond. Classes are such an important part of being prepared for labor and childbirth– both when things go exactly as you hoped, but also when the unexpected happens. Knowledge is power!”
“We were extremely pleased with the professionalism and compassion from this doula team. Angie, Becky, and Margo are a wealth of knowledge when it comes to pregnancy and local resources. We strongly recommend them to anyone in the area seeking a doula.”
“Piedmont Doulas exceeded my and my husband’s expectations. Becky and Margo’s support during an unexpected induction greatly contributed to me considering that experience a positive one, despite all that was out of our control. They are kind, professional, and most importantly, non-judgmental.”
“Thank you Piedmont Doulas for your support during my delivery… I had the desire for a natural, unmedicated birth and thanks to you that is exactly what I had. You ladies are amazing and I couldn’t have done it without you.“
“Cannot thank Margo and Becky enough. They helped my husband and I start to finish with our first hospital birth! They helped me feel I had the support I needed to make decisions about my labor. Also, I was so blessed to be a part of the Mom group following birth where I found lots of support as a brand new first time mother! Becky also hooked me in with some awesome breastfeeding classes that prepared me for the beginning days with basic latch help and going back to work and pumping.”
