Megan YP

Wendy is fantastic.  She was a supportive, knowledgeable doula throughout our pregnancy and through delivery.  She stayed by my side from when I called right through until I was in my mother-baby room after my emergency c-section.  She rubbed my feet during labor for what felt like hours!  She checked in with me after we arrived home and was available for questions even after that.  Completely worth it -- even though my labor didn't go according to my birthing plan.  I was so happy to have her by my side.

Wendy was our doula for the birth of our daughter in February 2011 and I know it would not have been the same without her. Wendy helped to create the atmosphere that we needed to stay calm. She was a voice of reason even if I didn't always listen. She did not leave my side for almost 12 hours and gave the emotional support both my husband and I needed. She was an amazing energy source to have during this incredible experience and I am so thankful to have hired her for the birth of our daughter.

I would highly reccommend Wendy Mathews as a doula for your birth experience. My labor and delivery turned into a difficult and arduous situation and she was absolutely amazing throughout the entire thing. I really don't know what we would have done without her. She is caring, compassionate, extremely informed and informative, and beyond helpful. She makes you feel confident when you are in her capable hands.

My entire birth experience with Wendy was amazing! She taught me certain excercizes and techniques that made it very easy to maintain focus on the blessing of being pregnant without the fears. She showed me how to take the preassure of labor off my spin. The yoga poses and birthing ball tecniques were also so helpful. Wendy was very helpful to my entire pregnancy. The only regret I feel is that I was unable to deliver vaginally. Until then Wendy made me very comfortable and very relaxed. I also would like to add that what ever the next step was that my body made, Wendy was very knowledgeable about everything. She was very good to have around, also in some sence I feel that she prepared me for my c-section as well.

Wendy has been my doula for both of my births. She was there for me through my pregnancy giving sound advice, encouraging me through the labor, walking with me (at all hours of the night), and was a huge help at the birth centers to make sure that we followed my birth plan as much as possible. Both births were amazing and there is no way that I could have had the confidence to do a natural birth with out her!
