When I discovered I was pregnant with my first baby, I was completely overwhelmed in trying to figure out how and where I wanted my birth to be. Luckily, I made the wise decision that finding a Doula would be my first priority. Tori was the perfect person to help me through pregnancy and birth. She helped me understand all of my options and respected all of my decisions as I eventually transitioned from Midwifery care to a Physician. Tori’s presence is bright but also very calming and understanding. She was always available for support and instilled a confidence in myself as my first experience with childbirth approached. She taught me how to listen to and respect what my body was telling me, and to trust my own instincts.
Unfortunately, my birth plan had to change as I began to experience multiple complications during my 36 hour labor. Tori helped me accept these changes, and also helped me remain in control of as many aspects of my labor as possible. I was able to rest comfortably knowing that she was advocating for me even when I couldn’t speak for myself. She was especially helpful in teaching my husband how to be a part of my labor and showing him ways to support me. I’m so glad I made finding a doula a priority, and even more so that I chose Tori! When I found out I was pregnant for the 2nd time, Tori was my first call. I can't wait to have her with me through my second pregnant and labor!
