Love Letters

 

Here’s what moms, who have hired Renée, are saying!

“As brand new parents we didn’t know what to expect once our baby arrived. Having a new baby would be a huge life change for us since we decided to have a baby “later” in life after we had been set in our ways and really “carefree” in our lifestyle.  I’m 39 and although through the years I had a lot of experience with children, I knew it would be a whole different world to […]

“Renée was our doula for our son’s birth on June 6.  My whole pregnancy I was prepping for a natural birth by eating healthy, staying active with yoga and exercise, educating myself through a Bradley Method birth education class and by reading suggested books, and last by hiring Renée to help keep me and my husband calm, cool, and collected on our big day.  Renée exceeded my expectations of just needing her during labor; she came […]

“Where to begin? When I found out I was pregnant, I knew I needed to get someone on my team to get through the next 9+ months of my life.  I’m not a “sit back and let the doctors tell me what to do” type person.  I like to be educated BEFORE I get to the doctor so that I know all possible options available to me.  Especially since I knew, from the start, that […]

As anyone could imagine giving birth is one of the scariest moments for someone who has never experienced it before. It’s the fear of the unknown, the “what if’s”, and just becoming a parent in general. With Renée as my doula by my side the fear diminished. I’m one of those people who suffers from panic anxiety disorders. Needless to say I was petrified to give birth. I felt like I needed someone there with […]

“Our beautiful grandson and nephew, Jack, was born this January. My daughters and I wanted to hire a doula for my son and his wife because although having your first child is the most incredible and exciting experience, it can also be scary and stressful. An expectant mother can read every book and listen to every other mother’s stories, but nothing really prepares her for exactly what happens during pregnancy and childbirth. Doctors and nurses […]

“Renée was by far my saving grace and angel not only throughout my birth but, throughout the past 2 1/2 years. Renée is not just a doula she has been a friend and a shoulder to lean on through every possible scary thought and experience a new mother to be could have. Renée went above and beyond for my son, my husband and myself. She stuck with me through both pregnancies although my first I […]

“Hiring Renée was one of the best decisions I made during my pregnancy.  It was a joy to work with her throughout the pregnancy and birth of my first child. In our prenatal appointments, Renée combined expert knowledge with a calm, positive coaching strategy to prepare my husband and me for the labor process. In one meeting, she mentioned to me what a gift it is to experience childbirth. She told me it would take […]

After experiencing an unplanned cesarean section with my first child, I knew that I wanted my next experience in labor and delivery to be different. When I became pregnant with my second, I reached out to Renee immediately. I was emphatic about surrounding myself with as many supportive people as possible, so that I could reach my desired goal: to VBAC. Renee’s knowledge of the birthing process, coupled with her unwavering support of my birth […]

I immediately felt comfortable with Renee, like I had known her for years. I hired her in my third trimester and I wish I’d done it sooner. It was my first pregnancy and I had some logistical complications that were making me anxious (changing doctors in the 7th month, living in 2 cities 9,000 miles apart, etc.). Her knowledge and positive, warm spirit put my mind at ease and made me feel excited and capable […]

Having Renée as our doula was the best decision we ever could have made! She is an outstanding doula, and an amazing person. Her compassion shines through and she radiates with positivity! She is grounding, nurturing, and knowledgeable and offers invaluable support for pregnancy, labor, and post-delivery. We felt instantly comfortable with Renée and liked that she really took the time to get to know us. Her approach made us feel at ease and I […]

Getting Renée to be part of the journey of our first baby was the BEST choice we could have done, and we would do it all over again with her!!! We came across Renée through a post I had done on Facebook.  I had made the move from California to New York being 6 months pregnant to be finally settled in one place with my husband (who is from NY).  My post was on the […]

As soon as I got pregnant, I knew I was going to hire a doula. A few members of my family had doulas for their birth experience and highly recommended it. It was time to search. I went on a few different websites and looked up many doulas’ profiles, but still couldn’t pick one. I mentioned this in a conversation with one of my cousins who highly recommended Renée since she was a friend and […]

After a previously traumatic birth experience, I began my second pregnancy with high anxiety and fear that this birth would not go well again. I had educated myself since my first birth and decided I needed to hire a doula. Renee was recommended to me by many mutual friends. The moment we first met, she brought such a calming, confident feeling and my anxiety and fear melted away. Knowing I would have someone so experienced […]

I hadn’t had a doula with my first child, and didn’t know anyone personally who had one either. I did some research and realized that I needed a doula in my life! I turned to a local mommy page for recommendations. Renee’s name came up several times and I figured I would give her a ring. From the moment she answered her phone, I liked her. She was so warm and receptive and reassuring! When […]

I could not be more happy with our experience working with Renee Pizzuto as our doula. Not only was she extremely organized and informative but so kind and supportive. She explained in detail the stages of childbirth, what we could expect to happen before and after with breast feeding. Through the entire birthing process, Renee was incredibly encouraging and supportive and we had a 35 hour labor. She and my husband worked so well together […]

I called upon Renee before the birth of my second child to see if she knew anyone that did placenta encapsulation. She happily connected me with a woman who was pleasant to work with and reasonably priced. I had had a rough post Partum with my first son and was looking for a natural way to maybe curb the crazy for this next post partum. But.. I still wound battling anxiety and insomnia after giving […]

Renee played such a huge and positive role during the birth of my first baby 8 months ago. Using her as my doula was one of the best decisions of my life. She was my guardian angel, cheerleader, advocate, rock, and during the pushing stage, literally an extension of my body. I was confident in her abilities during prenatal visits because she has a lot of tricks up her sleeves regarding positions during labor, acupressure […]

I would like to start off by saying that on behalf of myself, my husband and our daughter, we are so thankful to Renee for the support, education and quality of service that she provided during my pregnancy and delivery. It is rare to come across a service provider who sticks true to their word and goes above and beyond the terms of their contract to give support to a client, but Renee does this. […]

I can’t say enough good things about my experience with Renee. I was fully prepared as a first time mom to be extremely nervous about my pregnancy and delivery but with Renee guidance i felt that I had all the information and support to go through with confidence and the knowledge that when needed I would have someone to lean on and be able to rely on for questions and issues as they arose. I […]

It is my honor and privilege to share my experience with Renee as my doula. As anyone could imagine, the whole experience of giving birth is a bit stressful but, I found the perfect doula that made the experience memorable. Renee has a warm and easy-going nature and has a very caring heart. During labor she was calm and soft spoken, letting me know what was happening and how to move through the pain. She […]

I first contacted Renee soon after learning I was expecting-in need of some posititvity. She was THE person to call. She fairly radiates with joy, especially when discussing babies and young children. She really was able to provide exactly what I needed at that moment – ENCOURAGEMENT. It was my third child, but I was overwhelmed – it had been quite some time since my babydays, and starting all over seemed scary – so did […]

As a first time mom, I was very nervous about having a child and what the labor/delivery would be like. After meeting with Renee and learning more about the assistance a Doula can provide, my husband and I were excited to partner with her. Since we both work full-time, Renee was very flexible and able to work around our busy schedules. She was always very approachable and responsive when we had questions or needed help. […]

I was skeptical about hiring a doula for my birth, but I’m so glad I did! Not only did Renee provide support, but she really listened, was so personable, and helped to alleviate my fears of the birthing process. She provided home visits pre and postpartum and was available by phone 24/7. Renee was available when I needed her most and I am so appreciative of the care she took to make the birth of […]

The word amazing comes to mind when I recall my experience I had with Renée as my doula of choice. Renée was always a phone call away with any questions or concerns I had throughout my pregnancy. She kept me strong and focused throughout labor with her words of wisdom and laboring techniques as I tried to fulfill my goals of a natural child birth.

Working with Renée was an incredibly positive experience. My husband and I are forever grateful for all her guidance and support during the most special time in our lives. She is very passionate about her work and we highly recommend her.

We were extremely fortunate to have Renée with us every step of the way. I don’t know how we would have gotten through without her. We were so impressed by her warm, yet professional manner, and by her knowledge regarding pregnancy and the different stages of labor. Renée never left my side. She did everything she could to make my experience as painless and as comfortable as possible. Hire Renée and you can be confident […]
