I didn't have the greatest experience with a doula at my first birth and was reluctant to have one with my second pregnancy (I was one of her first births and her presence seemed ineffectual and almost annoying at times). I decided it was best to talk with a prospective doula or two if, for no other reason than to be an advocate for me and what I felt was best when dealing with doctors at the hospital.
I'm so glad I spoke with Becca! She described to my husband and I all the potential things a doula could do for me during my pregnancy and labor (so many things I didn't even know were options after my first expereince) and put no pressure on my husband and I to work with her. She offered to meet with us multiple times and always came to where we were. She was wonderful with our curious 4 year old as well!
I was getting very frustrated in those last few months, but she was always available to answer a text or a call or an email. She even came over and hung out with me during some not-going-anywhere preliminary contractions. Just hung out for support.
When it came to actual labor, my son came much faster and with more fury than any of us were prepared for (apparently, the doctor on call was blowing through stoplights to get there in time!). I was loosing a good amount of blood and really out of it, and even though Becca wasn't able to get there for the actual event, in the blur of it all, a few moments after I gave birth, Becca was all of a sudden right there, holding my hand. 
Labor is the scariest thing I've ever had to do and I can't thank Becca enough for her calming presence, supportive nature, and generous spirit.
Anyone would be lucky to work with this incredible woman.

I am so glad I had Becca as my doula! During my pregnancy, she helped direct me toward useful resources that helped prepare me for the birth I wanted, including books on birth for me and my husband. She especially helped prepare me for successful breastfeeding by sharing videos and finding my local La Leche League and coming with me to a meeting. At my actual birth, she provided exactly what we needed, coaching my husband in how to be the partner I needed, and providing support and snacks so that my husband and midwife could do their jobs. Also, it turns out I can only yell at my husband while in active labor, and Becca provided necessary mediation. Overall, my pregnancy, birth, and even post-partum experiences were significantly improved by her input, and I would not hesitate to book her for any future pregnancies!
