Everyone dreams about the kind of birth they want. My dreams always included a supportive, knowledgeable doula by my side and that is exactly what I found in Brandi!
Brandi met with my husband and I and discussed the vision I had for my daughter's birth. We talked about things I wanted, things I didn't want, my husband's role, her role, and our expectations during delivery and after baby is born. We had every question answered and every subject covered.
My birth didn't go as I had envisioned. I was induced due to gestational hypertension. Within minutes of messaging Brandi she was on her way to be by my side. She offered position suggestions to ease labor pains and aid in progression. She helped me make educated decisions with necessary medical interventions. She even took gorgeous photos of my labor and our new addition to our family that I will always cherish.
After my precious baby was born, Brandi helped make sure I was recovered, comfortable breastfeeding and had a few good latches before leaving. She followed up with me the next day to make sure I was feeling well, baby was doing well, and breastfeeding was successful. It felt amazing to have someone who cared so deeply about my comfort and wellbeing! She followed up with me a few times after going home and always offered help if needed.
I wish I could have Brandi again for any future babies! I highly recommend her to moms looking for a fantastic, caring doula!
Brandi was a phenomenal support not only during labor, but pregnancy as well. We were faced with countless challenges from the OB department and Brandi was always there to listen. When I had a 40 hour labor that went off the rails, she was there for my husband and I every step of the way. Neither of us could have been as successful without her! If ever we lived in the same place again, we would want her on our team again no question!
In the midst of a chaos and not ideal birthing experience, Brandi was the calming presence I needed. Due to her support I felt comfortable listening to my body rather than doing what the medical staff were pushing me to do. She provided my husband and I the opportunity to be present with one another and share the intimate experience as she assisted with pain management through pushes and utilizing a rebozo. She helped my husband feel confident in his ability to comfort me and advocate for me throughout the laboring process. I am so grateful for Brandy and her doula services for helping me bring my beautiful daughter into this world.
