Erin was incredibly easy to work with and accomadating during our pregnancy. She made sure that our needs were met, both during pregnancy and during labor. She took the time to explain all of our possible options and help us figure out what our birth experience would be like. She is really down to earth and did not push anything on us- she let us tell her what we wanted her to do to help and then suggested things she could to make sure we had a positive experience. We went into the pregancy knowing we were going to deliver at the hospital and that I was going to get an epidural and any other pain management that was offered to me. We were not looking for an all natural or alternative (like home birth or birthing center) birth and she was totally ok with that.
I believe I was able to make it through my labor, especially my later painful contractions and when I had to push, because of Erin. She helped me with breathing techniques and rubbed my back with each contraction. When we went down to the labor and delivery room, she put up encouraging pictures and sayings and some nice candles to make the room feel a little less hospital like. She was super encouraging when I was pushing and kept me calm so I could push with new energy each time. My husband is wonderful but I knew I needed additional emotional support from someone that could really focus on me. And I was able to get that from Erin.
It has now been 6 days since our son was born and she has checked in every day to make sure we are doing alright and to see if we need anything from her. She has been very attentive and we would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a doula that is great with going with the flow.
