My experience with Emily was wonderful. She knew just what to do to help me through my contractions, and she had different positions and ideas to help relieve my pressure and pain. Her presence was extremely comforting and non-intrusive. She was very observant and noticed when I needed something during my labor. I chose to give birth in the hospital and she worked with me and with the doctors to make sure that my birth plan was known and heard, and she helped remind me of things in the moment that I needed to communicate with the doctors and nurses. She was willing to work with me and whatever it is I wanted for my birth plan, and I am extremely grateful that I found her and hired her for this labor and delivery. I highly recommend her!
Emily was great with keeping up with my appointments and checking-in to see how I was doing. This was my first pregnancy, so when me and my husband met with Emily, we had a lot of questions. She answered all of them and settled some nerves that I had. She had a lot of techniques and positions when I started to get further in my labor that helped me get through it easier and involved my husband which he enjoyed. She also gave me massages and helped make sure that my voice was heard. Emily far exceeded our expectations. She was wonderful, caring, and helped me stick to my birth plan. When my labor was getting intense and I was about to give in and get an epidural she helped me stay strong. She helped with a lot of the anxiety I had during the whole birth process. I can't say enough good things about Emily. She's a lovely doula and person in general. She became a very dear friend during this experience. If we choose to get pregnant again, I would definitely have her as my doula. She helped make the birth of our baby girl a beautiful experience that we will always treasure.
Emily was amazing. The fact she understood so well how I birth helped a lot. Im super bossy but she didnt miss a beat. She supported me through a very high risk pregnancy where docs where pressuring heavily for csection. The photos she took I will treasure forever. Seeing the emotional release of a healthy baby in photos is something I will forever cherish.
