Betsy is one of those people that being a mother just comes naturally to. Add in her positive attitude and calming demeanor and you have the perfect recipe for a doula.
Before my son came Betsy was always willing and able to listen to my worries and fears and she backed up each of her responses to me with not only credible sources but with an understanding heart. She truly loves the birthing process and speaks about it so passionately it was hard to not shed some of my worries and join her in the excitement.
While in labor Betsy provided my husband and I with numerous suggestions on different labor positions and genuinely encouraged us throughout the entire process. One of my favorite things she said was, "You guys are doing great together. You're a good team!" That reassurance
made me dig up energy I didn't even know I had during labor. She timed each of my contractions for almost 6 hours and looked up every question I had during labor.
During those intimate moments Betsy stepped back and allowed my husband and I to be joyful together and she simply was just there for us if we needed her.
The days following my son's birth Betsy asked several times about not only his well-being but mine also. As a new mother, it is so very nice to have someone ask about you! Betsy truly understood this and made it a point to make sure I was adjusting well.
She was there for us through one of the most special times of our lives and we could not thank her enough!
