During my pregnancy, I knew I wanted a doula to help me succeed in my natural birth plan.
Cyndel is such an amazing person and I immediately felt comfortable around her. She has such a sweet demeanor and really cares about her clients and their babies. My husband was hesitant at first, not wanting the doula to take his place in my labor. He couldn’t have been more wrong! Cyndel was so helpful in having my husband be a crucial role during my labor and they worked so beautifully together to help me endure the waves of each contraction. My husband says that having a doula is necessary! He was so appreciative of having someone who knew techniques and positions to help me through the pain. I really don’t think I could have gone through my 30+ hours of back labor without any medicine or interventions without their teamwork. I got my natural birth that I wanted and I couldn’t be happier about it ??
Cyndel went above and beyond to provide Exemplary care and support during my two and half days of labor. She not only helped me physically but emotionally. She gave me such great encouragement to help me through. She not only helped me but my husband as well. Her excellent care didn’t begin when I went into labor she also helped me mentally prepare and gave me the knowledge I needed to make the right decisions. Her loving heart and vast knowledge is a huge part of my birth story and I wouldn’t change a thing due to her. Three months later and she is still helping me. I highly recommend Cyndel to anyone!
I'm so glad I chose Cyndel to be my doula for my last pregnancy. She is kind hearted and compassionate and was always ready and willing to answer all my questions and concerns throughout my whole pregnancy. She made me feel at ease when when i doubted my abilities to give birth the way I really wanted. She encouraged me and made me feel like a rock star when I was so tired and wanted to give up. Her stress and pain relieving techniques, along with her calm demeanor and sweet spirit were just what I needed to get through each contraction. I think my pregnancy and labor were so much better because I had her by my side every step of the way. Thank you so much Cyndel for everything you've done to help me bring my sweet baby girl into the world! :)
In my world, there's no other doula ????. Cyndel has such passion for the health and safety of children. I've never seen a pregnant mom Cyndel didn't want the absolute best for. She stays up to date on current child-bearing and delivery issues and has a full understanding of how to make the birth of a child a complete joy.
Cyndel was a friend of a friend at the beginning of my first pregnancy. But, by the time I was holding my sweet little girl in my arms, she had become so much more to me. She was such a wonderful educator, very personable and helpful. I had more comfort in contacting her with questions than I did my doctors nurses. Not to mention the fact that she had made herself available at any time, so I didn’t have to wait until the next day for a call back. When it came time for labor, she was by my side the entire time, never was invasive or intrusive. She was a support and comfort to my husband also, during a difficult labor. She was great with our nurses and my doctor for a long labor while being such an incredible encourager and comforter to me. After we delivered, she offered an appropriate amount of postpartum support as well as breastfeeding support. I can’t say enough good about my experience and journey with Cyndel, and my husband is her biggest fan as well. That is a high compliment to her, as he was thoroughly impressed with how she handled and interacted with us during the labor. All the while, as we talked pregnancy, labor and birth, we intertwined our lives through a wonderful friendship. I had confidence and comfort in Cyndel since day one. I will forever be grateful for my doula, my friend. And of course, I highly recommend her to anyone who is pregnant or trying to conceive.
