Without Vannah, my first home birth would not have been the same. I wish I had known her with my first pregnancy, but I will definitely be hiring her for my future births. Her availability to text and talk to with questions and concerns meant a lot to me, and she came right away when I needed her in labor. My birth was healing and special, and she was supportive through every stage physically and emotionally with hip pressure through contractions and helping me keep calm when it got hard. I would especially recommend Vannah to a first time mom, or first time home birther, although she would be good support for a seasoned mom, too! Her own experience in home birth and breastfeeding gives her real life knowledge I appreciated having. I labored for a while before the midwife came, and having doula support then made an impression on that experience, I didn't feel alone, and didn't have any stress about when to call the midwife because even if the baby came fast, someone capable was already there. She quietly and calmly did everything necessary intuitively, I didn't need to communicate anything to her when I was deep in labor because she was already doing it. We set up the birth pool and prepared the house together in early labor, it was like enjoying a day with a friend. A few days postpartum she helped me with belly binding, watching the baby while I took a shower, did my laundry and dishes, and helped tidy the house some. She is such a blessing to me, and I am actually looking forward to another birth with her someday! <3
