Abby Beyrau

Chelsie was my labor doula for the birth of my son (my first baby) in January 2018. My husband and I very much appreciated the time she took to meet with us and the information she provided to us both before and after the birth. She answered questions that we didn't even know we had! I appreciated her knowledge and personal recommendations - everything from the best books to read, to must-have baby gear, to tips for my husband to help support me.


During labor, Chelsie was a calming force and came prepared with tools and tricks to help me make it through the labor and birth naturally. I don't think I could have done this without her! In addition to supporting both me and my husband through the process, she captured great photos and videos of the experience! I am so grateful to have this - along with a detailed birth timeline. My husband and I were so overwhelmed, Chelsie was a great pillar of support through the whole experience.
