What can I possibly say about Erin to justify her service to us?!
I'll start with the fact that my husband was against us even having a doula again. Our first experience, with another doula, wasn't terrible, just not incredibly helpful or worth the money. I was able to convince him to hire her, and it was, beyond-words helpful! We were able to meet a couple times before the baby arrived, she was interested in our entire family, and loved on us all!
The morning of the big day, I called Erin, and let her know that my water had in fact broke high and that baby would be making his appearrance soon! She came to the hospital completely prepared and ready to be at my beck and call. She let me sleep as the nurses hurried themselves around me to prepare to hook up the internal monitors. We had big plans in place to use all her tools and knowledge to help baby arrive quickly. They came in and inserted the internal monitor, and that broke my water completely. From there, things happened quickly! We didn't have much time to use her tools, but she was phenomenal at being by my side reminding me to just breathe that baby down. She never left my side, and had so many words of encouragement as I thought maybe I couldn't do it. She helped me to reposition in better positions to get the baby to continue to descend and in only 4 hours, we welcomed a 9lb 4oz baby into the world!
We, my husband now agrees, were so blessed to have Erin, and we are sad that she has left our area, but know that she has an amazing heart for those she works with and would reccommend her to anyone looking for a doula!
