Jen was a wonderful doula for my labor. She met me at the hospital very quickly. She was such a rock during my labor. She helped provide humor and distraction when I requested it and helped me focus when I needed to. She brought soothing music, hard candy to help me deal with nausea, and extra tennis balls to help me cope during contractions. All of those things were essential to helping me cope during the intense transitions. She reminded me of ways to help labor progress. It was my second birth and I really wanted to have my son without pain medication, which is something that I did not accomplish with my first. Jen reminded me to change positions and change my breathing during transition. She kept me on track for a medication free labor when I thought I couldn't do it. She reminded me that I could. I'm not sure I could have gotten the labor that I wanted without her by my side. She reminded hospital staff of my wishes when all I could focus on was labor. She even provided light touch massage when I needed it. She makes you feel at ease and has a wealth of knowledge. If I am ever blessed with another child, I will hire Jen as my doula all over again.
