Emily is a wonderful kind person. I am grateful that she was on my side during labor. Even when you have the best husband there is -which I have ;) - there is no replacement for a labor experienced woman on your side. Emily helped me to stay focused, especially during active labor and transition phase. It was much easier to cope with the contractions than with my first labor, where I did not have the support of a doula.
If every woman had this kind of support, there was very little need for interventions and pain medication.
Thank you Emily!
