My pregnancy and birth experience was anything but easy! It was 25 long hours and Diane was there from hour 1-25! She was so soothing and has such a calming and caring nature about her! She is absolutely wonderful! She was there suggesting different positions to ease pain, keep my anxiety low, and keep my hospital room positive! She was also there supporting my husband and best friend. Reminding them that they needed to sleep, eat, and take breaks for themselves as well. She gave tips to my husband of things he could do to help me remain as calm and comfortable as I could be! She even took off my make up for me when I was crying! Highly recommend Diane to anyone, especially those who are afraid of the labor experience!

My husband and I used Diane for the birth of our second child, and I have to say that I'm just so pleased that we found each other. We connected on all levels of what I envisioned for my birth plan. Diane displayed a sense of calm, natural-born birthing wisdom, and full support during the course of my entire labor and birth. Though it ended up being a much quicker experience than any of us anticipated, I still felt that her presence and (and coaching leading up to our due date) helped keep things smooth and empowering. I highly recommend Diane to anyone looking to bolster their emotional, mental, and physical support in their pregnancy, labor, and delivery.
