this was our first time having a doula during our pregnancy and birthing time, and I am so glad we chose to go this route. This was baby number 7 for us, so not our first rodeo. However we have had c-sections as well as VBACs and each birthing time has been different and has had their fair share of crazy happen. We choose to use Hypnobabies with our births as well, and adding a doula just seemed like the right fit. I am so glad we chose to do that! Our little one decided he wanted to join us 3 1/2 weeks early and ended up in the NICU after his birth. This was very traumatic for me but Patti was there every step of the way! I called her at 4 am in labor. She immediately came down to our home. By the time she got there I said we needed to head to the hospital. She helped me get out to the car and She followed us to the hospital but we had a hiccup on the way and ended up in an ambulance. She followed the ambulance to the hospital. Due to the circumstances she wasn't able to be present during the birth but once I was in the recovery room she came right to me and stayed with me. My husband had went to the NICU with the baby. Had we not had a doula, I would have been in that room all by myself. So while our birth plan did not go at all how we planned, I did get my VBAC (barely) and I had someone to hang out with me so I was not alone. She went with me to the NICU and was able to help me think of questions to ask she checked in with me for several days afterwards. We then had a post-pardum visit where we chatted about breastfeeding and thrush, as well as chatted about myself and how I have been doing. Dusing the pregnancy we met a couple times and went over my birth plan and different birthing positions. I definitely recommend a doula and Patti is a great choice! We will hire her the next time around for sure!

Patti helped me so much! If it wasn't for her, I probably wouldn't have been able to have the birthing experience that I did. I wasn't able to take any birthing classes, but with Patti by my side, it felt as if I knew exactly what to do. She is someone that you instantly click with and I felt so comfortable with her.
