I can’t express how much I appreciate Dana’s role at the birth of my daughter. Her joyous personality, encouragement and the hardcore counter pressure were above and beyond the investment we made in hiring her! My husband was able to stay up front and center to connect with me emotionally and not worry about the little details like keeping me hydrated or pressing on my sacrum so I could cope with the intense pressure waves. My daughter ended up being a full body dystocia, born weighing 10lbs 14.5 oz and the midwives had to use three manouvers to get her out along with pulling her out while I purple pushed. She was okay but needed to be transferred to the hospital (we delivered at a free standing birth center) for some help with her oxygen levels. My mom had arrived with my toddler son before we realized she would need to be trasferred via ambulance, and as I desperately wanted to see my mom and for her to catch a peek at her granddaughter but didn’t want my son sensing the stress of the room...sweet Dana sat with my son outside in the parking lot so my mom was free to come see us. Which I SO appreciated because I knew that was not her job description, but she knew how important that moment was to us and my son loved her! Not only that but she came with me to the hospital once my bleeding was stabilized and I had eaten something, carried EVERYTHING and made sure I got settled into my postpartum room and walked with me to meet my husband and baby girl in the NICU to check in with us all before leaving.
guys. This lady right here is the real deal with a heart of gold and the knowledge surrounding birth and support to match it. We absolutely loved having her at our birth, I wouldn’t have had it any other way!
