I cannot recommend Megan enough. This was my first pregnancy and my partner and I really wanted someone to be with us answer questions and allow us to make informed decisions. Megan did more than that. When I say I could not have had the birth experience I did without Megan I am being 100% honest. Megan kept me and my partner calm, she made sure we were informed and encouraged us to make decisions that we were aligned with. Megan coached me through the pain and encouraged me to keep going. When it was time to adjust my birth plan she made sure I made the decision without outside influence. Through this experience Megan has become part of the family. I can sit comfortably with a birth that went nothing like I expected because through all the wild turns Megan was by my side. Thank you Megan!

Before I was even pregnant, I knew I wanted to hire a doula. Because as a first time pregnant person, I knew nothing about labor or giving birth. After meeting Megan, I felt a sense of strength and peace. She was in my corner from day one. Megan goes above and beyond and was always one text message or phone call away. I felt comfortable asking any and all of the questions.

After my birth plan was completely derailed and I had to be induced, Megan's presence throughout my labor experience was essential. I don't care what anyone says, I could NOT have done what I did without her support. She was my rock in the darkest of times. More importantly, Megan guided my husband through the entire experience as well. I appreciated how she helped us with decision making every step of the way - reminding us to weigh pros and cons and risks and benefits. I can't promise she will do this for everyone, but for us, Megan slept on the hospital floor... that is next level commitment! 

We will forever be grateful for Megan and her doula skills. As long as she is "doulaing" and as long as I'm having babies, Megan will be our doula for life. #BAM

Ah Megan ... Aka BAM (Bad A$$ Megan). I have no idea what I would've done without you during our daughters birth. You were a perfect doula and an even better ally to me and my wife. You helped me comfort my wife with such confidence in the most intense moments of my life. You kept me from passing out when I accidentally tried to do contraction breathing for 5 hours. You slept on our hospital room floor for crying out loud. Because of you we tell everybody to get a doula. I'm so glad we had you in our corner, and we hope we get to have you in the rest of our lives.

Having Megan in the delivery room was so calming and truly made my labor experience that much more special. It felt like I had both a nurturing mother figure and childbirth expert all in one which was exactly what I didn't know I would need through the process. Not to mention getting to confide in Megan throughout my entire pregnancy was  so special and more important for the journey than I realized. She is truly a light and I am forever grateful

We had a fantastic experience with Megan as our doula! We had 3 pre-birth meetings where we discussed how I was doing, my thoughts and feelings around pregnancy and preferences for birth, and Megan led us in a gentle prenatal yoga flow. When it came time for delivery, we had already established a great relationship with Megan and felt supported and encouraged by her. During labor, Megan was so positive and helpful and guided us to achieve a positive, empowering birth experience. After labor, we had a postpartum visit where we debriefed the birth. A few things didn't go to my specific plan during labor, but with Megan's help, I left the experience feeling strong, empowered, and courageous. Megan's positive attitude even left an impression on my midwives at UC Health Highlands Ranch, who asked for her contact information so they could recommend her to their patients.

I would highly recommend Megan Hannan’s doula services. I found her approach to be both respectful and extremely caring. From the moment we met, Megan immediately put me and my partner at ease. We got together a number of times prior to my due date to discuss my concerns, talk through preparations for labor such as creating a birth plan, and to practice prenatal yoga. I found her to be reassuring, knowledgeable and appreciated the resources she provided. It was wonderful to be guided through a gentle, pregnancy centered yoga class in the comfort of my own home- my partner joined in as well! My labor turned out to be much longer and more difficult than I had anticipated and Megan was there every step of the way providing support and encouragement for me and my partner. I honestly don’t know how I could have done it without her! I feel extremely fortunate for the compassionate care I received from Megan throughout my pregnancy, labor and postpartum journey.

They say it takes a village to raise a child. What they don't say is how important it is to have that village prior to their arrival. Megan, was so incredibly vital in preparing for our little ones arrival. An open book for every first time mother to be question. Never judging. Always full of love and light. 
Then came the big show. She was so great about conveying a clear, loving, message the entire time. Insuring that mom, baby, and dad understood every aspect of the birthing process. 
Hours of coaching and support produced one of the most magical experiences of my life. The birth of my sweet little girl. Knowing I had this calming, strength in my corner made the entire process amazing and I would highly recommend everyone to look into doula's for the birthing process, specifically, Megan.

We found Megan through DoulaMatch.net and chose to meet with her to see if she was right for us. After the first meeting we knew we wanted megan with us for the journey we were about to take. Her price and services were made clear up front, both of which were very fair and more than worth it! We enjoyed having Megan over for a meeting before our son was born, and she certainly helped ease our anxiety. The real work began when we were admitted to the hospital to be induced. When we were ready for Megan, we called and she was by our bedside within 15 minutes, even though it was 5 in the morning. having Megan with us for the birth of our first child was life changing. She walked us and talked us through every single contraction. She helped me find the strength inside that I didn’t know I had. She helped me stay confident in my birth plan, and kept me on track through the pain of contractions. She was a calming and reassuring voice, And Im not sure I could have had such a successful experience without her. We will forever be grateful for everything Megan did for us before, during and after the birth of our son.

This women is amazing, I don't think I could have made it through labor without her. She made sure I had everything I needed to bring my little man into the world. Thank you so much!??

Megan was great I wasn't sure about using a doula but my wife wanted to try it. I'm glad I listened to my wife. She made the whole experience great and was there to help her and me through it. She is very knowledgeable and she listened to what my wife wanted and made sure that's how it went. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great doula. Thank you Megan for being there with us!!!!

I had been thinking about hiring a doula when Megan and I met by chance through Facebook. We exchanged messages and decided to meet in person. Within the first few minutes of meeting I knew that I wanted to hire Megan for our upcoming birth. My husband was skeptical about it but went along with my plans. Wise man.

Megan and I communicated several times before the birth and she made sure to explain all the ways that she could support us during labor. She asked questions to get to know us and understand any concerns we had about the birth. She put my mind at ease with an answer to every question I had and even took the time to find resources for me on services that are outside of her scope.

When I went into labor Megan supported me over the phone and checked in  periodically to make sure I was doing well and let me know she was ready to come to me when I needed her.

When I finally decided to have her come over she arrived promptly and talked me through contractions, encouraging me with kind words and affirmations. She suggested different positions to help relieve pain.

Megan went to the birth center with us and  helped not just myself but also my mom and husband who were there supporting me as well. She offered breaks to them when needed and gave them front row seats when desired. We talked and laughed together and when things got hard she held my hand, smoothed my forehead and reminded me that the pain was bringing our baby into the world. Her reassurance calmed my nerves and gave me strength.

She managed to integrate seamlessly into my support team.

I have no doubt that had Megan not been at my birth the experience would have been much less pleasant. There is no better way to support a laboring woman than to have one person rubbing her back, another rubbing her feet and a third holding her hand!

Megan even made my husband a believer in the power of doulas!
