Renee was my doula for the birth of my son in 2008. She was phenomenal.
Our meetings over the course of my pregnancy were informative and
thought-provoking, and her support through my delivery was priceless.
Throughout my labor, she coached me in pain management techniques,
she physically supported me, and she anticipated my needs. Her approach
was sensitive and flexible: she used a little humor to lighten the mood,
she used gentle encouragement to reduce my panic, and she worked with
the midwife, nurses and my birth partner on my behalf.
I would highly recommend Renee's services, and would be happy to
speak with anyone further about my experience with her as my doula.
Prior to meeting Ms. Cordes, I had gone through three failed in vitro fertilization attempts. Though there was no explanation for it, my body was not allowing the fertilized egss to implant. Each unexplained failure was a heartache as well as a puzzle.
I am happy to report that this last in-vitro attempt was a success, and I am a proud mother of 22 month old twins. I accredit Ms. Cordes with much of the reason for my blessings. I am not sure I would ever have experienced the blessing of motherhood without her imparted knowledge and skill. I am eternally grateful to her.
