Chelsea was referred to me by a mutual friend and she was the first and only doula I interviewed. From the very beginning, she seemed very informed, easy to talk to, confident, caring, and comfortable with my husband's sense of humor (very important for us since we would be in a very important situation - the birth of our 3rd child and first VBAC attempt). As soon as we left our initial meeting, I knew she would be our doula. 

Throughout my entire pregnancy, Chelsea kept in touch with me and never hesitated to answer any questions I had. Our prenatal appointment was great and her constant contact with me until the end of my pregnancy was very much appreciated. Although my wishes were to not be induced if at all possible, when my midwives determined I would need to be induced a week early, Chelsea helped me determine if I was truly ok with that and what our plan would be since it wouldn't be a sudden situation. 

During my labor and delivery, Chelsea was amazing. She helped me through each contraction and kept reminding me of how close I was getting and how far I had come. She worked great with my husband and helped to keep the environment relaxed or cheerful or however I needed it in that moment. She is also the one I remember during transition and pushing that snapped me back into reality so I could focus and accomplish my goals. 

There is not a doubt in my mind that I wouldn't have had the birth I wanted, and got, without her. I HIGHLY recommend her services!

Chelsea was very helpful during birth. She helped me to keep calm and focused during the hard parts of my labor. She is super sweet, caring and her bubbly personality makes you feel like you have your best friend as a doula.
I appreciated her caring attention even before going to labor, I always felt that I could call her and she could lend a listening ear to my fears.
She worked with us and our schedules to make our prenatal visits work. With everyone's busy schedules it was not an easy task for her.
She did a wonderful job with making us a birth video, this is a wonderful keepsake full of happy and meaningful moments to remember.
If you are thinking is hiring her as a doula you are making a wise decision!

If you're looking for a doula, Chelsea should be on your list of doulas to interview. Frankly, start with her because you probably won't have to look any further.

Throughout my pregnancy Chelsea provided me with a wealth of information to help make decisions for my baby and me. She also simply listened and supported me when I needed someone to talk to about the aches and pains I was experiencing. Her prenatal visits were friendly and warm; I always felt comfortable and cared for during our meetings. 

When THE BIG DAY arrived and my water broke, I was able to contact Chelsea without any issues. (I don't know how she does it, but she sounded awake and cheerful despite it being the middle of the night!) We made a plan and both arrived at the hospital around the same time. Never did I feel alone during my labor. I loved how she swayed with me during my most intense contractions and how she would quietly whisper encouraging words to me while I was pushing out my baby. Perhaps most importantly, when things didn't go as I had hoped, she never left my side. 

I feel blessed to have had Chelsea be a part of my pregnancy and the birth of my son.

Chelsea was a wonderful addition to our birth team for the birth of our third child. She provided much needed support before during and after the birth. She helped me to work through issues that I had leading up to my birth including ten days worth of prodominal labor and three false labor alarms. She helped me to breathe an stay relaxed through my contractions.  When I finally went into full labor it was a quick an intense experience an Chelsea sensed it was too much too fast for me an when I started to tense up an try to run away from it she talked to me an told me I knew I couldn't run an I had to relax. She has proved to be a wonderful  doula an now friend. I wold recommend her over an over again. If you need a calming friendly presence for your birth I strongly recommend Chelsea. I couldn't of rocked my second vbac without her an her wonderful support!
