Elizabeth has a special gift. Since the first time my husband and I met with her, I've felt like I've had a wise, quiet, reassuring presence in my corner. She checked up on me after my OB visits, listened to my worries, shared my relief when everything turned out ok. She and my husband worked together seemlessly to support me through a long and difficult labor, and she's been a valuable friend to me since the babies were born. I am very glad she has been a part of this crazy beautiful time in the life of my family.
From the start of me and my husband's relationship with Elizabeth, she demonstrated both a high level of professionalism, as well as a warm, empathic respect for us. Each meeting only solidified these first impressions, with us coming to see Elizabeth as an incredible source of knowledge about our selected methods, with her bringing new ideas to each session on how to maximize the birthing experience. Moreover, while Elizabeth was open to sharing her expertise and perspectives on birthing, she always provided us with a sense of agency and control as we made decisions.
In addition to responding to questions about Hypnobaby and Partner-coached Birthing procedures during each pre-session, Elizabeth never wavered in the birthing room. She remained calm and soothing. Throughout the labor her presence gave me encouragement, with her techniques helping to subtly guide me all the way up to birth. When me and my husband recall the experience of having our first baby girl, it is difficult for us to imagine having accomplished our natural birth without Elizabeth by my side.
When the time for our second child arrives, we definitely plan to work with her again!
Elizabeth was amazing throughout the whole process. She met with us and answered any questions we had even prior to hiring her. She adjusted our appointments to match my husband's demanding work schedule, and even came to a prenatal appointment when my husband was not going to make it. During the actual birth, she was a great resource for both myself and husband. She helped guide my husband so he could help me during the birth. Additionally, she would step in to allow my husband to take a break or she would work beside my husband to help alleviate the pain of labor. She is AMAZING, and very calming during the labor process. I can not recommend Elizabeth enough! We are so blessed to have found her and will continue a life long relationship with her.
Having Elizabeth attend the birth of my daughter can only be described with one word, a blessing! I knew I wanted her there, but I didn’t know how essential she was, until she walked into the delivery room and I felt a wave of relief. Her calm yet confident presence is perfect for setting the mood that let me know I could do this! She is knowledgeable but respectful and not overbearing with her opinions, which allowed the birth experience to be completely my own. I didn’t feel judged by her, but rather, supported. She let me know that I was in control of my environment. She was completely present with me, not wandering to other thoughts. She stayed by my side and was my rock in a 24-hour labor. She built on my husband’s commitment to the experience, without taking away his role. He was able to be more fully present and enjoy our impending arrival, as his confidence in her abilities put him at ease. Elizabeth is passionate about women and birthing, she will not let you down. She is sweet, professional, and irreplaceable!
