Meeting Ruth 13 years ago was such a blessing. She is talented, knowledgeable and caring. She was there for the birth of my healthy 12 yr old and thank heaven there for the traumatic premature birth of my now healthy 5 year old. She believed in me and made breastfeeding my preemie possible when everyone said it couldn’t be done. She is a true example of how women can empower one another and is the first to pick up someone when they are down. I am lucky to call her my friend all these years later and am forever grateful.
First of all, having a Doula at your birth is an amazing thing, in other words, it’s kind of a must! Doula Ruth Kraft is by far the best Doula I have come across in both my personal and professional opinion, being an OB nurse :-). She is so wonderful with clients and is such an empowering woman no matter what your birthing preferences are. It was so awesome having her by my side at my recent delivery and our birth pictures are absolutely breathtaking! She has also been instrumental in our breastfeeding success. I personally have had many breastfeeding issues along the way and she always gave the help and encouragement I needed. She is absolutely the best in my book 😉
Now that Baby is here I found your breast feeding session to be most
beneficial to me. My husband enjoyed the session for the fathers to be. It
mad him feel More a part of the whole experience.
Ruth, What can I say, I learned SO much last night!
I now see breastfeeding as an absolute miracle. I can only imagine that natural childbirth is too.
Thanks again for everything!
We learned so much!
The decision to hire a doula to attend our daughter’s birth was one of the best choices we made in our journey to parenthood. From the moment I looked pregnant, people began to discuss – in great detail – the trauma of their birth experiences. And while this information was not empowering on its own, it helped cement our resolve to enjoy our birth experience with the help of an experienced birth “mentor.”
