Jessica

Nancy was a wonderful doula.  She was thoughtful and calming and had some great tips for aftercare.   We used some of her ideas and they helped put our daughter to sleep.

Nancy was the most unexpected gift to come into my life when I was pregnant, and I am grateful every day to have her in my life. I was in a drug and alcohol treatment center when I met her by chance on an outing one day, I was in a different state from home, and felt very alone. But after we met and got approval from my counselor and the Executive Director of the program I was in, I saw her nearly every week, and when I got closer to the end of my pregnancy, it was nearly every day.I was able to talk to her about all of my fears - the delivery, I was choosing to have a natural delivery, fear of the future - I was placing my daughter for adoption, and had a lot of feelings about the process and how I would feel after. Nancy was so supportive through every step of the way.When the time for delivery came, I was being induced, she picked me and another girl from the treatment center up, and the three of us spent the whole day together, and with my family. We walked laps around the delivery ward, laughed, watched tv, and emotionally and physically tried to prepare for the moment. She was so intuned to my needs, even before I realized what I need. She was an advocate for me when I felt uncomfortable speaking for myself. When my labor felt too intense, she was right there telling me that it was okay to ask for an epidural, even though I was trying so hard to do without.The anesthesiologist didn't make it in time, and in minutes from the time my water broke to delivery, she was right behind me, and helped me catch the baby when she was born, and tell me how great of a job I did. She even stayed overnight in the hospital, helping care for the baby so I could rest afterwards. And our relationship didn't end there. She continued to come to the center to see me after delivery, and we still talk to this day.Without Nancy's support I don't know how I would have gotten through the process. It was the best birth experience I could have had.
