If you are unsure about whether or not you need a doula during your pregnancy, I hope this review is a sign for you to move forward and hire a doula. Specifically, if you want a world-class support system before, during, and after your birth - hire Zarema.
Like most moms, I wasn't sure whether or not I should hire a doula. However, my first birth did not go as planned (they never do), and I knew I wanted to feel more in control for my second birth. I decided to hire Zarema to serve as my birth coach with the goal of having a better, more enjoyable experience than my first birth. Little did I know she would become so much more!
Zarema immediately became invested in my birth as if she was the one giving birth. She listened to all my needs, fears, and concerns and helped me develop a strategy and positive mindset for labor and delivery. She communicated to me all the different possibilities that could occur during labor and the ways we would react while still maintaining control over the experience. She not only worked closely with me, but she made it a point to meet with my husband to coach him to be a more supportive birth partner. WIth her preparation and guidance as a doula, and her amazing support during labor and delivery, I had the birthing experience of my dreams - literally everything I wished and hoped for happened during my birth. I absolutely attribute that to all the preparation and support I got from Zarema.
Not only that, Zarema's support did not stop after delivery. She was constantly checking in on me, reassuring me about my motherhood instincts, and ensuring I was getting enough time for self-care and healing.
There aren't enough words to express the amount of gratitude I have for Zarema. I promise you, hiring Zarema as your birth doula will be one of the best decisions you make as a family and a mother.
Zarema was so helpful and encouraging during my first birthing experience! I couldn’t have asked for a better doula to be by my side through the beginning of this new chapter in my life.
