I had no idea what a doula was until Amber came to a family circle meeting at our OBGYN. Once I met her, I said to my husband, " I feel like I need to have her at my birth". It wasn't just her training and experience that got me interested... Amber gave me a feeling of empowerment and confidence when talking about labor. That is exactly what I needed and wanted through out my pregnancy and birth experience.
I feel like Amber went above and beyond at our meetings. She stayed late and talked through so many things with us.She also offered Yoga sessions to be added to the package if that was something we wanted. I added 10 sessions (which I HIGHLY) recommend. I also had a massage done by her toward the end of my 3rd trimester ( Which I also HIGHLY recommend!!)
Going into labor for the first time... you just dont know what to expect. My Birth went even better that I had thought it would. It was very short, quiet, peaceful and powerful. With Amber and my husband by my side it was the perfect combination of encouragement and guidance. I highly recommend Amber and will forever be recommending and using her Doula services.
My childbirth experience would have never gone the way it did without Ambers support.
I highly recommend her to anyone interested in hiring a professional, educated, supportive and qualified doula.
If you are 'on the fence' about needing a doula - I strongly encourage you to contact Amber to see for yourself. She was an integral part of my birth story.
I have always wanted a Doula for my first birth and I wasn't sure who to contact. My cousin gave me Amber's contact information and right as I called her, I knew we clicked. When my husband and I met with her, she was so calm, nurturing, loving, caring and a wonderful listener. I chose to hire a Amber with 3 months left of my pregnancy (I wish I would have hired her sooner), but she was so extremely helpful and ALWAYS available via text or call during this entire time. Amber would check up on me quite often to make sure I was doing okay and was there to answer any questions I had, she still checks up on me to this day. During our initial meetings, she explained to me what hypnobirthing was and how to control your breath and to breathe through the "surges" and to picture the baby moving down into the birth canal. She had me practice when I was in my comfort place (the shower) while taking count of however many breaths went in, is however many would come back out. When my water broke at 2:10AM, she immediately texted me back and helped me through the process until she arrived at the hospital when I was about 5cm dilated. I had a 15 hour birth and Amber never once stepped away from helping me. She played calming/soothing music, put essential oils on me, helped me breathe through the surges, said words of affirmation the ENTIRE time, held a hose over my back for countless hours to help me get through my NATURAL birth, pushed on my hips to help relieve pressure, and massaged when I needed it. She stayed for an hour after I had her, and came back to check on me the next day. I honestly don't know what I would have done without her. She MADE my pregnancy the BEST one I could ever have! I constantly tell people this will be THE BEST $500 bucks you EVER spend! I appreciate Amber so much and am so thankful to have used her and found her as my Doula. I will be using her for my future births, HANDS DOWN! HIRE AMBER, HIRE AMBER, HIRE AMBER!!! She is worth every penny!
My husband and I both knew almost instantly that amber would be our doula. She was the first and only doula we met with, and we all just clicked. Throughout my pregnancy Amber was there for any and every question I had(and being a first time mom, I had a lot). She calmed my nerves. She gave insightful advice. She showed care and love. My labor was long. My mental stability trembled on my strength alone. But with Amber by my side, along with my husband, I pushed farther than I thought I could. When she entered my hospital room, she brought with her a peace that filled the room not only for me, but for my husband, mother and aunt. Her voice is so calming. words simply do not do justice to the love and appreciation I have for Amber. She will most definitely help me through every one of my future births.
