Jenny Gold is an excellent doula. We couldn’t have asked for a more well-grounded, perceptive and attentive person to accompany us as we brought our first child into the world. She explained the whole birthing process to us in advance, prepared us for the worst, best and all other possible scenarios of what could happen on the ‘big day’ in a matter-of-fact, simple and clear way. She helped us shape our birthing plan by quickly identifying what approach best suited our personalities and sensibilities. She kept us calm and focused through the most stressful parts. She knew when we needed our own space, but also when to intervene to help us get what we wanted and needed from the staff at the hospital as well as from the whole experience. She is at the top of our list for round two!
