Aside from being a generally awesome human, Amy was the best thing that happened to me in childbirth (other than having a baby of course). I really don't feel like I could have had this baby without her.... her instinct to what I needed, such as massage or pressure, made it easier for me to focus on getting through each contraction. As loving and supportive as my boyfriend is, Amy provided the physical and emotional support that really helped me through each moment; yet, she allowed my partner to be there exactly as I needed him to be as well. She always had my water or sherbert ready, brought me bagels & cream cheese whenever I asked, had dry, warm blankets when I needed them, and supported me in everything little thing I asked for - I truly felt pampered during this experience. I intended to do an unmedicated birth, but when things weren't moving along and my midwife suggested pitocin, and when I decided I wanted an epidural, she supported me in making the best decision for me and my baby, which was especially important as I was being hard on myself for wanting the epidural (I really wanted to be all natural). She also somehow managed to take a bunch of beautiful pictures without me knowing the entire time. I can't say enough amazing things about Amy - if you're at all considering her to be your doula, CHOOSE HER!!!!!
My birth experience would not have been as great without Amy. She was professional, educated, prepared, dedicated, and caring. She really helped to prepare us for the birthing experience. She also helped to bring such a calming atmosphere to the labor room, helped to provide my husband and I support,and helped me through the contraction pains in multiple ways. I highly recommend her as a doula and I had such a great experience with her by my side during labor!
