From the moment my husband and I met Chelsea, we knew she was the person we had been looking for. Her passion for her job, the respect for the process, and most importantly, her calming presence reassured us from our first meeting that we NEEDED her in the delivery room with us. Her first order of business was to convince my husband that we needed a doula :) He just wasn't sure on the process and to be honest, was nervous that a doula would take away from US sharing this beautiful experience. Chelsea did a very good job at explaining her role and how she supports BOTH of us and empowers us to help one another during this very important milestone...He was sold

She helped us think through our birthplan and asked us very thought provoking questions to help us really get on the same page. She even helped us draft a post partum plan - which I didn't even know was a thing! She was on call throughout the whole process and never hesitated to answer a silly question or help analyze very graphic photos! She was with us for about 13 hours the day I went into labor and ultimately, she was there to witness the first breath our daughter took. I was able to bring her into this world exactly how my husband and I had hoped for and I strongly believe that Chelseas can do presence, her informed advicacy and SOUL helped us see it through. 

I cannot say enough about this beautiful soul and would recommend her to anyone who is interested in having their mind body and soul be part of of this beautiful journey. Your body is an incredible vessel and she does not let you forget it. And if she'll take us on as clients again, I would have her in a heart beat, no matter where we are in this world ??

How to describe a person so special to me. :)  First of all, you don't even need to read this, just go ahead and hire her.  

But if you need more convincing...I'll tell you my story.  I met Chelsea through my chiropractor.  We had planned on interviewing other doulas, but we met Chelsea first and looked no further.  My husband and I both felt a connection and it felt good.  We hired her immediatlely, when I was about 20 weeks along.  We had a couple of pre-natal visits at our home with Chelsea, where we discussed birth "plans", practiced laboring techniques, and asked her lots and lots of questions.  I was grateful to have her help to guide us through an (ideally) unmedicated birth at our local hospital, and that my husband and I could enjoy the process and not have so much pressure on him as my labor support.  We were all set to have an amazing birth.

5 weeks before my due date, my husband passed away suddenly in his sleep.  Chelsea was one of the first phone calls we made to ask her what we should do to ensure the baby was safe.  She was shocked of course, as we all were, but calmly advised us.  Chelsea came over soon after that horrible day and we cried together.  

Later, we formed a new plan together for our birth.  My sister, mom, and Chelsea would all assist me in labor and be there to cheer me and baby on!  I was so glad Chelsea had gotten to know Jeremy, and knew his spirit and personality so she could bring his energy with her, as my mom and sister did, into the delivery room that day. Aside from the obvious, I was able to have the birthing experience that Jeremy and I had hoped for; a drug and intervention-free labor, in about 10 hours from the breaking of waters to screaming, wide-eyed baby girl!  Chelsea helped me push through one of the hardest, best days of my life and my daughter and I will always lover her for it.
