I hired Willow Tree Wellness when I was 37 weeks pregnant. Tara and her partner, Crystal, gave me unparalleled support during my final weeks of pregnancy. They always responded in a timely manner to my text messages and calls. They were great cheerleaders and did a good job of steering me toward evidenced-based-research whenever I needed to make an informed medical decision. From the very beginning, I got a strong sense that they would support me in whatever kind of birth I wanted. They helped me craft a succinct birth plan that reflected my true wishes. They gave me incredible support at the hospital and I was able to achieve an unmedicated VBAC thanks to them. I truly believe I would have had a repeat c-section if I did not have the encouragement of the doulas. During birth, I felt empowered and listened to. Because they have seen so many births and have extensive experience with the hospital, they were able to put my mind at ease about what was normal in labor and they could help me navigate some of the hospital protocol and decisions I needed to make there. During labor, they suggested different positions for laboring/pushing and applied counter pressure in ways that made the contractions bearable. They never gave up on me and continued to encourage me even when I felt like giving up. My postpartum recovery was difficult, but they even made that better. They came to my house for a visit and spent several hours drawing me a healing herb bath, helping prepare a meal for my family, playing with my toddler and holding my newborn son. They checked in with me often on how my healing (physical and emotional) was going and I always knew they were just a text message or call away. I truly believe hiring Tara and Crystal was the best use of money I could have invested that would lead to the ideal physical and emotional health during, before and after birth. My husband, unsure of hiring a doula at first, would also concur that they were a great investment!
