My entire pregnancy, I knew I wanted a doula, but I couldn’t find one that I clicked with. When some unexpected vet bills arose, I had to give up my doula dream. Thankfully, I’d mentioned to my midwife I really wanted someone as this was my first birth and she referred Andora to us around 37 weeks.
Andora was an absolute blessing for us. As first-time parents going through a natural birth, she was able to calmly guide my husband and I through the labor and birthing experience. Leading up to delivery, she provided various tools (like a rebozo and a birthing ball) for us to use at home. When my labor first began, she labored with is at the birthing center and showed my husband numerous ways to help me with the intense contractions. And when we wound up changing our birth plan to the hospital, she held my leg and kept giving me words of encrouragenent as I pushed my little girl into the world.
I can’t say enough about how invaluable Andora’s calmness, knowledge, and strength was for us. She kept our anxiety at bay during the whole process those final weeks. I plan to hire her again for our next pregnancy, and hope her schedule will be open for when that takes place!
