“We met Valerie at a doula meet & greet.  We immediately connected with her and knew she would be our doula.  From then on we became a team to welcome our baby into this world.  Valerie is very kind, gently, warm-hearted, a great listener, and is radiantly joyful.  She was open to our family customs and adapted well.”

“My husband and I were honored to have Valerie’s doula support for the birth of our first child.  Our interaction with her was easy and natural, from the first consultation to the post-partum visit.  She provided great resources and even suggested phone apps to prepare us for labor management and nursing.  At the hospital, she guided us through birth pains and progress.  She was hands-on during my pushing, and offered words of assurance and encouragement.  She helped my husband feel at ease, and communicated with our families during times of anticipation.  We felt confident and at peace with our decisions that day, largely due to Valerie’s support and expertise.  Her thorough timeline of our birth experience brought tears to my eyes.  We are thankful that Valerie heped us to treasure this beautiful day.  We would recommend her to anyone looking for a doula!”

“Valerie Rohde served as our labor doula for the birth of our first son.  We chose to hire a doula since this was our first child and we didn’t know what to expect.  I intended to have a natural birth and understood that it could be intense as well as a long process so we wanted to ensure we were well prepared.  That preparation came in the form of selecting a care provider we were very comfortable with (Dr. Joseph Tate), attending a birth class that suited us well (Hypnobabies) and hiring an educated doula we felt a strong connection with (Valerie Rohde).

Prior to going into labor, Valerie was readily available and checked in with me often.  When I went into labor, Valerie met us at the hospital and was there with us every step of the way until our baby was born not long later.  Throughout the process, Valerie was very encouraging and supportive to both me and my husband and helped me to have the natural birth I had hoped for.

I am so thankful for the photos she took that day – they will be cherished for years to come.  She also provided a significant amount of information and support regarding breastfeeding as I had some difficulties during the first weeks.

My husband and I were very pleased to have selected Valerie Rohde as our doula and we would highly recommend her to anyone interested in having additional support as they labor and deliver.”

“When my wife suggested that we hire a doula for the birth of our first child, I was a bit skeptical and hesitant.  After some convincing, I agreed to meet with labor doula, Valerie Rohde.  She answered all of my questions and made me realize that having a doula in the delivery room would only add to the experience for both me and my wife.  She was right!  I am so thankful that Valerie was there with us and helped guide me as I supported my wife.  There were a few times I needed to leave the room for various reasons and I felt comfort doing so just knowing that Valerie was there with her.  If you’re considering hiring a doula, contact Valerie – you won’t be disappointed!”
