I'm the OP of the other thread.
Does anyone have personal recommendations for a good doula in Lakewood with phone number?

If you don't mind, can you also share specifics that she did that helped you?
TIA.

She has tons of experience.
Took her a few vbacs. Went natural a few hours and eventually took epidural.
She is so supportive of all your decisions. Very positive. Kept dh involved. Very calm.

I'm not sure what other thread you're referring to, but I would highly recommend Aidy Hoffman.

Not only is she supportive and can help you get through the pain and all that, she is also extremely knowledgeable about baby position and can help you move in a way to get the baby in a better position. I'm talking about if a baby is posterior or too much to one side and things like that. She is also knows a lot about birth in general and can help navigate if anything comes up while in labor.

I know one of my sisters used her and was very happy with her experience.

I've never used a labor coach, so no personal rec's.

Bump.

Any other doulas?

The ones mentioned above are not coming to my hospital, Community Medical Center, at the moment, due to Covid restrictions.

Aidy hoffman - 848-299-2805
Unless she isn't going to Community due to COVID- wasn't sure if you were referring to her.
If you're using OGOA, the midwives know her and like her, at least when I used her.

Thank you. I am using OGOA.

Community is making doulas take a COVID test every 5 days, so a lot of them aren't going there at all now, or are charging a loootttt extra.
I spoke to a quite a few doulas, and they all said that Community has the most strict COVID policy of all hospitals.


I'm so frustrated.

Does anyone have?

Aidy Hoffman is definitely going to Community these days, I checked with her.
She really is an amazing doula and she knows so much about preparation for labor and birth in general.

dk the official average price but I know they can go from a few hundred dollars to a thousand, or possibly even more.

I'll just update that I ended up using Aidy Hoffman. She was super duper amazing but super duper expensive.
Worth every penny though.

Do you mind sharing her price (can be estimate if your uncomfortable with sharing the full price)

I'd rather you call her to ask. I think her price may have been different because my hospital had complicated covid rules.

I will tell you though, that she gave me a base price which was for the first 8 hours, and then she charges hourly after that.
It ended up being 15 hours total. 🙈 So was super expensive.
