Andrea has supported me mentally, physically and spiritually for a number of years before my pregnancy through massage, reiki, and being a source of womanly wisdom.  It was a no brainer for me to turn to her when I found out I was expecting. 

Throughout my pregnancy, Andrea gave me positive encouragement when I felt anxious, and helped me come up with strategies for coping with labor.  She also offered prenatal massage as an added comfort.  Her ability to calm my anxiety is almost magical!

When she came to meet me at the hospital, it was early morning, and I was in active labor.  She brought my husband coffee, and jumped right in to coaching me through the contractions. Even when I thought I wasn't strong enough, her gentle encouragement and trust in my strength gave me the energy to make it through each incredibly strong contraction.  When I went from 4cm to 10cm in one hour, she was able to help me and my husband prepare for birth- she showed my husband where to stand and help me, and then she held me from above and whispered strength into my ears while I pushed.

Postpartum, Andrea picked up my placenta and encapsulated it for me.  Taking the capsules daily has really boosted my postpartum energy and motivation.  Andrea also came to visit during the first week and my postpartum massage was wonderful!!  

 

Thanks for everything, Andrea!
