Post-Op Support

 In the United States, 7 million people suffer complications following surgery each year, including at least 1 million deaths, many of which are preventable. Pre-Operative and Post-Operative Doula Support refers to the care, support, and education provided before and after a surgical operation. The aim of preoperative and postoperative care is to do whatever is right to increase the success of the surgery and promote a fast and healthy recovery.

I hired DMV Birth Doulas and was excited to be paired with Nikita, the owner of my post-op doula services. First, I had not heard of such a program but I was intrigued after researching doulas. I had an abdominal myomectomy which resulted in a multi-day hospital stay and six weeks of recovery. Nikita provided me with much-needed education. Even though I LOVE my OBGYN, Nikita told me things that my doctor failed to. When it was time for my pre-op appointment my doctor was shocked and pleasantly surprised by my knowledge and informed questions. Best yet, when I returned home, Nikita met me and my wife and she cooked a week’s worth of hearty and delicious meals to help in my healing process. I truly feel that her assistance led to a quick recovery process. My wife and I are now about to start our fertility journey again and we will be hiring Nikita for doula services very soon! If I could give more stars I would!
