"Your Journey, Your Way"
Throughout my pregnancy we used Priya Lad as our doula and she was absolutely wonderful to work with and extremely knowledgeable. As this was our first pregnancy, we were super nervous but priya was able to ease our worries in terms of how I was feeling physically and emotionally with my pregnancy. She provided us with wealth of knowledge for labor/delivery and what to do to keep me calm throughout. After having my baby, Priya and I also did postpartum visit and that was extremely helpful knowing I had someone I could talk to regarding my feelings. I can’t thank her enough to walk beside us during and after my pregnancy. She truly made a huge difference and provided us with so many resources to set us up for success with our little one.
As first time parents, my husband and I were so thankful to have had Priya present at the birth of our daughter. It was very calming to have someone there that not only knew what was going on with me physically, but also was familiar with the in's and out's of the hospital procedures and could help us understand what was going on and our options. I also found it so important that I did not have to be left alone at any point during the labor. priya is an amazing doula! Both my husband and I can attest to Priya’s ability and knowledge. Her presence during the birth of our daughter was a tremendous help. This was our first pregnancy and we both wanted to have an experienced and encouraging coach to help us along the way. Priya was helpful in educating us in what to expect in the weeks leading up to the birth, the childbirth process itself, and what to expect postpartum. Priya was very professional and nurturing throughout the labor and delivery. Priya was quick to suggest laboring positions and to ask questions and make suggestions that were in my best interest. In addition to her active coaching, Priya also provided music and essential oils. Priya was a great cheerleader in moments where I thought I would not be able to deliver the baby. She is awesome and we recommend her highly.Thanks so much Priya!
Priya helped me stay calm and focus where I needed to during contractions. She was very personable and helped me relax in between pushing so that I saved energy. Her attentiveness made me feel more at ease during a naturally stressful time. She worked alongside my husband as well as the nurses and midwife to comfort me and help me have an amazing birthing experience. I felt that anything I asked at any time was immediately answered. She anticipated my needs, which is why I highly recommend her.
I am so thankful that I reached out to Priya a few days before our son was born. I was very uncomfortable by the end of my pregnancy and was just ready to meet our son. I mention to Priya that I went for my stretch and sweep that Thursday and my OB said that my cervix was still closed and that the baby wasn't coming anytime soon. Priya was very knowledgeable and helpful in educating me in how to induce my labor naturally. That Saturday I went for a very long walk with my dog and then again after dinner with my husband, came back home and had some raspberry leaf tea. With in less then 24 hrs I was in labor. Our son was born that Sunday at 5:17pm. Even though we live in Canada I would highly recommend Priya to anyone I know! Your amazing and thank you for all your help!
