Eliza was a blessing for us.  I knew that I wanted to have a natural childbirth with as little hosipital interventions as possible.  At one point my labor stalled due to my cervix being swollen and, while the nurses could examine me and tell me the situation, they didn't seem to have any insight as to how to alleviate the problem.  Eliza was able to work with me, getting me into several different positions that help thin my cervix and get the baby into the right position.  I feel strongly that her guidance was what led to my sucessful vaginal birth.  

I used Eliza as a a jungle gym! Hangin on her, leaning on her, you name it... She was able to hold me, sway with me, keep me positioned on the birthing ball and rub me when I needed (I didn't have to ask, she just knew what I needed).  Never in my life was i happier to have someone offer me chap stick or ice chips!   Eliza was extremely calming.  As silly as this sounds, she smelled good too, which was actaully very refreshing and calming in an unexpected way.  Eliza was so calming, patient, reassuring, and a source of strength through the pregnancy. There were many times that her voice guided me through contractions and kept me focused and strong.  If we have baby number 2, she's our Doula!

On a side note:  I found that haveing a Doula was instrumental for my husband.  She worked with him and gave him the guidance to be active and supportive as well.  We did our homework, and my husband was prepared, but having Eliza was an extra source of support for him.

As my doula, Eliza was intuitive to my needs.  She listened, taught, researched, and referred me to helpful resources.  She tactfully advised us in the hospital when our son came quickly and decisions were being made on his behalf.  She is kind, smart, gentle, strong, resourceful, and reliable.  I am proud to call her my friend and I highly recommend her to any potential client.
