Debi, or Debi the Doula as my family likes to call her, is exceptional. Not only was she incredibly helpful and supportive during labor and delivery, she was also amazing before and after. She came over multiple times for many hours so my husband and I (and our dog) could get to know her before this major event in our lives was about to happen. Debi also helped us postpartum for 2 weeks and that was one of the best decisions we ever made. She was there for us emotionally, physically, and spiritually. She even made us chicken soup! She still comes by months later to see us. She is kind of like the baby whisperer. We Love her. You will too. E.M.
Debbie is the person you want by your side during pregnancy. She is educated, loving, and really put's the pregnant mama's interests above all. During my pregnancy she was available to talk for as long as I needed, some times she just listened as I struggled to figure out what I needed. Other times she offered advice when I asked. I had doctors recommending next steps and I was scared. She came with me when I had to be monitored (even brought lavender oil to calm me), she was there with a hug and a warm smile when I got out. And as far as the birth went, she helped me through contractions, came with us to the hospital and continued to offer support. And post partum, she's been there - even brought me a veggie filled drink to help with recovery. I LOVE Debbie! Yes, she's nice, compassionate, and funny, but more importantly, she's educated and supports the mamas right to choose the birth that's right for her. You will be very blessed to have her by your side! - A.L.
Debi was my doula as well as my childbirth educator. She was amazing in both roles. The class was very informative, and small enough that it was more like a very educational conversation in a comfortable setting. My birth experience was long and complicated, but Debi was always there to offer advice, rub my back, support my husband, and whatever else I needed. Without her, I probably would have ended up with a c-section, but she helped me have the strength to stick through my original plan for a vaginal birth. She had both the knowledge and the gentle manner to communicate effectively with the staff and ensure that my wishes were met as much as possible. - A.K.
Our decision to use a doula with the birth of our daughter was one of the best decisions we ever made and we were so happy that we found Debbie Benton. Debbie was first highly recommended to us by a friend of a friend who had used her services. —and Debbie was the right one for us! Because of my insurance, the rocky start of my pregnancy, and the fact that our hospital and doctor didn’t have the reputation of being real “patient friendly”, we needed a doula that was experienced, understood medical jargon, and knew how to talk to doctors. Debbie was VERY knowledgeable and confident in that area—and most importantly we found her to also be genuinely kind, caring and loving. She was very attentive to our needs, concerns, and questions before, during, and after the birth. She always made herself available to us, and our family was very appreciative to have her around at the hospital to update them on our delivery status. We were extremely impressed with Debbie’s dedication to her profession---she truly treasured being a part of our most important life experience. We felt more confident and at peace--- just knowing we had someone at our side during Eliza’s birth eased our minds and gave us the stress-free natural birth with no complications that we had dreamed of! We would recommend her to anyone! Thank you , Debbie! T.C.
