My husband and I decided to hire a doula because we wanted as natural a birth for our son as possible. Bethany really helped make our experience as natural as possible. I was struggling early in labour to maintain a drug free birth as my water broke before contractions started and labour was not progressing very fast. She really helped my husband and myself to stick as close to our plan as possible even though we had some road blocks come up. I would definitely recommend that everyone hire a doula especially Bethany.

My husband and I hired Bethany as our birth doula because we were preparing for a drug-free hospital birth. Neither my husband nor I are terribly comfortable in hospitals, and we wanted the extra support that a birth doula provides. Thanks to Bethany, our birth experience was extremely positive and all of our birth preferences were respected by hospital staff. Bethany helped us so much in our journey and I truly believe that without her, I would not have been able to have the positive drug-free birth experience that we had prepared for.
