John & Elizabeth Lindler

Having Serenity as our Doula was a Godsend. Though we chose to meet her at the hospital when my wife went into active labor, she was ready and willing to come to our home, even though we live almost an hour away. Serenity had previously met with us and had a full understanding of our birth plan. She was supportive and confident during the 21 hours of active labor at the hospital, standing with my wife’s decision to give birth to our little girl naturally, without an epidural, and prepared to stand with us if the hospital tried to interfere with our birth plan. Serenity was not only strong and supportive to my wife, but was careful to consider my needs, as well. On several occasions, she offered to take my place next to my wife so I could grab a short nap, and encouraged me to eat for energy and keep hydrated. When it came time for the final push, I was strengthened and ready to be there 100% for my wife. Serenity was right there, coaching my wife to breath for the baby and encouraging her all the way. She is knowledgeable, dedicated and compassionate. I am so thankful we had her at our side during the entire process, from putting our plan together, to being a part of the birth of our beautiful girl. But, she didn’t stop there. She continued to follow up with us after the birth. She is an amazing young woman who absolutely loves what she does…and it showed in every aspect of her commitment to us and our baby girl. God bless you Serenity!

From the moment we met Serenity we knew we wanted to have her around for our birth. Her knowledge and obvious passion left a great impression on us. Knowing that Serenity was not yet certified made us a little nervous but we decided to follow our instincts and believe it was the best decision we could have made for our birth. Serenity made us feel comfortable and secure. She was thorough in making sure we had a plan and supported our vision every step of the way from our first meeting, and until our daughter was born. During the labor and delivery Serenity couldn’t have served us better. She was cool, calm, and collected which helped me better manage my contractions. She followed my birth plan and when things went not quite as planned, she had another way/idea to help me and the father. Not only was she amazing for me but for my partner too. At first, he wasn’t really for a doula; however, he kept an open mind and decided to try it out and he believes he couldn’t have made a better decision. After experiencing labor with her, he believes he needed her more than I did. She was able to give him a break when he needed one and emotional support when labor was getting intense. We both now realize what an asset she was in helping me to have a natural birth. This birth couldn’t have happened without her. We are forever indebted and very grateful for all that she did before during and even after, coming to our home to help us transition into to parenthood more easily. We will always be sure to hire serenity to be our doula for every birth, she is more than a doula she is a true friend.
