Having Megan as our doula for the birth of our first child was incredibly helpful. She was always calm, collected, and supportive. Her considerate nature and ease with people truly shined while I was in labor for 20 hours at the hospital. Giving my husband breaks to nap while keeping me company, applying cool towels, and getting water or popsicles in the earlier stages of labor might sound small - but the little things made such a BIG difference in keeping me relaxed. As my labor progressed, Megan's actions were a fabulous example for my husband to follow and mimic how to help me. This definitely made the experience more meaningful and positive for us as a couple. From taking walks around the birthing pavilion, to suggesting, and doing different stretches or poses with me, to communicating with nurses when we needed something or had questions, Megan was a wonderful, non-intrusive advocate.
Megan's non-judgemental and supportive approach to being our doula was ideal and I was ableto have the epidural-free delivery that I was hoping for. Thank you, Megan!
I wasn't sure what a doula was, let alone that I would want one. But on a friend's suggestion, I decided to hire one. I chose Megan and she was with me every step of the way. I was so thankful to have her by my side. It was invaluable to have her support and guidance. She was a strong and calming presence. She had great advice and ideas. Her ability to work with our schedule, even with a baby who came very late, was perfect.
I would certainly use Megan again, and I would encourage anyone having a baby to have Megan as their doula. I honestly feel like I would have missed out if I hadn't.
Megan was an integral part of our team during the birth of our daugther. We met several times in advance and she got to know us and our birth preferences. She was very considerate and also offered suggestions based on her experiences. She was very supportive and encouraging. While I was in labor, she came to our house at 2:00 am and stayed with us through the night, applying counter pressure during surges, and even walking up and down our driveway under the stars at 4:00 am. At the hospital, she was right there helping with labor positions and making sure we were in synch. Megan is very strong and very calming. She knew how to be there in the moment and help us at the right times. We were at ease knowing that she was there with us. She was supportive of both of us as a team unit. Because of Megan's support, I was able to have a natural, unmedicated birth using the hypnobirthing techniques, and we have a beautiful daughter who is healthy. Megan is an outstanding doula and a wonderful person.
Megan is great. She was able to provide great support for me especially since I had to be induced early. She was very knowledgeable about the different procedures they could do a and was there every step of the way to help advise and keep me sane. I wish I had her for my first pregnancy. Comparing the two, having her there for support was awesome. Don't hesitate to ask her anything! She was also great at following up afterwards to see how both baby and I were doing. If I have another child, she will defintely be my go-to doula!!
