We hired Jen as our doula for our second son. She was there for us during pregnancy, going over our details and desires, making sure we felt comforable with her and that she understood our birth plan and goals. I felt so supported by her and very comfortable. She made a lot of effort to get to know us and our style; asking a lot of questions and clarifying. When it came time for labor, she was on call. She was by my side throughout my very long labor- if I had to just use a few words to describe her presence they would be "strong," "kind" and "empowering." I honestly don't know what I would have done without her. She came to us late at night, drove me to the birth center (as I labored in the back of the van hah!) and was a strong support through every contraction- rubbing my shoulders and neck- doing counter pressure on my hips over and over. Her belief and encouragement made me believe in myself. She was on it- offering snacks and drinks and recommending different positions and comfort measures. I labored all night long until 5am when contractions stalled and we were sent back home. After being up all night with us, she was still just as kind and gentle. She remained available for us. The next night labor started again, and again she was there with us at the birth center all night long. Not only did she support me, but my family as well. I feel like she just brought such a strength and peace with her. She helped me bring my second son into the world after a hard labor. It's hard for me to receive help from people and she reasurred me over and over that I wasn't a burden and that she was glad to be with me and proud of me. I also loved the humour she brought. There were some times I needed tough love or a pep talk and she always seemed to know what I needed. Can't say enough about her. She's remained a support postpartum.
