Great experience. She conducted 2 or 3 prenatal visits prior to my due date so we could get to know each other and practice some of the comfort measures so I could come familiar with them. She was very confident and down to earth, she always truly cared about the woman and her birth preferences and did everything to help go as planned on the big day. I could always get in touch with her with questions about birth and loved that she was always willing to send me information if needed.
She arrived promptly to the hospital and never left my side. She made me feel confident that I could birth my son naturally And worked with my husband during labor so that he could perform some of the comfort measures as well. This was my last child but I would definitely hire her again and recommended her to my expecting friends.
This was my fifth child and my first experience with a doula. I started out the experience feeling like an old pro, but I learned a lot of new tricks. Donna was able to gently get me out of what I thought was my comfort zone...aka "the bed" ...and try new techniques that really helped in the laboring process. She was supportive and seemed to know when I needed a kind and encouraging word and when I needed silence. This was my first birth with out the aide of an epidural, which made my recovery time super quick. I was up walking around and my back did not hurt. I am so thankful to have had such a wonderful birthing experience, especially since this was my last one.
Thank you Donna!
