I had such a wonderful experience with Elise throughout my pregnancy, birth, and after. She was very supportive, helping me to voice the birth experience I imagined for myself and my husband. I couldn’t be happier with my choice of doula and I would definitely reccomend her to other expecting moms.
My experience with Elise was amazing! This is my second child and I did considered a doula the first time, but decided not to do it. I am a single mom and having a second child was overwhelming and when a family member couldn't come out to help with the birth, I decided that this time i needed to hire a doula. I did check a few out, but they were more than i could afford and then my OB gave me Elise's email. I contacted her and didn't wait long at all for a response. I was basically at the end of my pregnancy so we met up quickly and by the end of the meeting i was already sure i was going to hire her. (Even though she told me to give it a day to be sure, I already knew) she was so knowledgeable. She brought up things i never even thought of and showed me all kinds of breathing techniques and positions since I wanted to try a natural birth this time. Beacuse of her i really felt like i was ready when i got induced (still scared though). I brought everything i could think of( birthing ball, snacks, heat packs). She kept me calm and helped me stick to the birth plan. If i forgot something that i said i wanted, she reminded me so that i'd ask for it. she even gave me back massages! I ended up having to have a C-section and my whole birth plan went out the window. While i was about to start freaking out, Elise grabbed my hands and hugged me and kept me calm. She never seemed scared or pushy or anything other than supportive. A C-section was the last thing i expected and while i was really hyperventilating on the inside, Elise went with the flow and assured me she would be there which helped me so much. She was there with me during the C section, she talked to me to keep me calm and took pictures for me.It was truly an amazing experience. I could not have done this without her. In a short time, she really became a good friend and when she came afterwards in the coming weeks, it was still a big help then too. Hiring Elise was the best thing I could have ever done!
