Annaliese was my doula for the birth of my 4th baby. This was my only unmedicated birth. I had tried to do it previously but ended up with an epidural with my other 3 labors. I am 100% sure I could not have done it this time without her caring assistance. She came to my house to help me figure out what pain management techniques worked best for me, and even created musical playlists specifically for me. Once labor began and I was at the hospital, she came in and transformed my dulll hospital room into a beautiful, comfortable, homey environment. It immediately helped me to relax and feel better about birthing my baby there. She also knew I was nervous about many of the aspects of being induced and I had many preferences that are different from what the hospital staff would typically do, so she created visual birth plans and hung them up in my room, while also making sure that my nurses and doctor understood my requests. Once the contractions got going, the help she provided is almost indescribable. She was able to alleviate so much of my pain using techniques we had practiced. During EVERY SINGLE contraction! She may be small, but she is STRONG! I was amazed at how much it helped physically, and how she was able to keep up with all my contractions the entire time. While providing physical pain relief, she was also coaching me through each contraction with her soft, comforting, positive words. She kept the environment so peaceful and allowed me to focus on the experience. This was the most intense, amazing and most natural birth I've experienced and I owe it entirely to Annaliese. She reminded me of how strong I was every step of the way, and never let me doubt my capabilities. It truly was a magical experience, for which I am grateful beyond words. I would absolutely recommend her, and I feel that she has found her calling, with her kind and gentle nature, yet professionalism, and a voice to speak up for her clients.i can't imagine my labor without her!
