We had a wonderful experience with Misty. She was with us throughout the whole birth process and after. Even after our son's birth she came to our home multiple times to make sure everything was going well. She helped with breastfeeding and even provided multiple bags filled of her son's clothes. However, the biggest testimonial has to be from my husband. At the beginning, my husband was not completely excited about hiring a doula. He felt it would usurp his role as my coach. In the end, we both felt that Misty's presence at our son's birth was nothing farther from this. Misty never took Rod's role away from him, instead she helped make his job both easier and made him feel more confident at doing it!
My husband and I were looking for someone to help us in the birth of our first child that shared our faith and ideals. We met Misty after interviewing 3 others and immediatly knew she was the perfect fit. Her dedication and passion was clear to see and we felt comfortable and at home with her. When the time came for our little one to arrive she came immediatly and was supportive, patient and kind. She helped keep me strong and focused by reminding me where my strength comes from. I feel blessed to know her and to have had her to lean on during such an incredible part of my life.
We interviewed a few doulas in the area, but clicked with Misty right away. She was very involved with our pregnancy and labor from the start, introducing us to the Bradley Method and attending a few of our Bradley classes with us. During our prenatal meetings, Misty covered all the details we forgot to discuss, and ensured we were as prepared as possible. Once labor started, it instantly became clear to us how advantageous her services really are. She was there through every step of the birthing process, providing constant support to me. My husband and I took Bradley classes and knew what to expect, but my labor didn’t exactly follow any sort of plan or progress as quickly as we would have liked. When going through that much pain, it was comforting to have Misty present, as a woman who has experienced childbirth herself. Misty knew immediately based on how I was sitting and what I was saying what I needed. I didn't have to ask her anything - she was always just there, doing exactly what I needed, when I needed it most. Since the birth of our son, she continues to be an excellent resource, providing countless answers to questions on newborn care. Most importantly, she was able to provide us with what we desired most: a natural childbirth and profound experience of welcoming our son into the world. Even after having been through labor now, and attending Bradley classes, I will undoubtedly have her at all of my future births.
Misty is great! She was very helpful with creating a birthplan during our prenatal appointments. I only wish she could have been at the birth. My labor lasted less then two hours in the middle of the night. By the time we called her and she was on her way, we were on our way to the hospital. She met us at the hospital, but I had already delivered. She was fantastic when she got there though. Very attentive and on top of things. She immediately got me hydrated and helped me get all cleaned up and situated. Misty's energy is great. She is a lot of fun and I enjoy every minute I got to spend with her. She also has a great network of contacts. I will absolutely have her as my doula again IF we have a need for it.
