I believe in the value of doula support. I ask that families who are able to hire a doula pay my fee, but I don't want financial need to keep a woman from having the support she needs.

Having a natural birth was very important to me and hiring Liz made that possible. She was a great support to my husband and me. She continually encouraged me, telling me that I could go on when I was at the point of wanting to give up. She worked well with the medical staff and made sure my wishes were upheld. I am so grateful to her because not only was I able to have the labor I wanted (well, I wish it were shorter!) but my son was delivered safely and came out healthy and alert. Going through labor was the most intense and difficult thing I have ever done but I feel proud to have survived it and having Liz there made all the difference. :)
It's been over a year since Liz helped the midwife catch my baby & I regret that I haven't been able to write this sooner, but the immeasurable appreciation I have for Liz is as strong as it was then. As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, adult sexual assault & domestic violence (for which I was still in family court through which my contact information is still kept confidential such that I cannot open a bank account or forward my mail, etc.), living in a new city without medical insurance for part of my pregnancy, I was an emotional mess. Liz reached out to me while on vacation & we met only a couple times before I went into labor. I dissociated for almost all 35 hrs of my 1st labor & had no emotional connection to my baby immediately (save for the urge to kill anyone else who touched her). Liz's presence was so calming, it was so reassuring to know she was there "just in case", & she always seemed to instinctively know exactly what I needed when I needed it. My 2nd birth was so incredibly empowering & beautiful. I am forever grateful that she was a part of it.
Liz Baer was a lifesaver! My girlfriend was pregnant with our twins. We both wanted a natural delievery, with a c-section being a last resort emergency. All the doctors and nurses were pushing for an early c-section. Jenny developed preclampsia in the last month of the pregnancy. The doctors TOLD us that they were going to induce. Liz was an excellent UNBIAS source of information to us on both health and legal facts (all backed up by documented literature) so that Jenny and I could make OUR OWN educated decision on whether or not to induce. Ultimately we did induce, but we were able to have a NATURAL TWIN delivery. I cannot honestly say that this would have been possible without the help of a highly educated doula NOT affiliated with the hospital and their best interests. Liz Baer stayed and helped us through the entire labor and delievery...I would HIGHLY recommend her services!
My experience with Elizabeth as my doula was positive in every way. She supported my decision to have a natural, low intervention childbirth experince. Elizabeth came to my house while I was in early labor and helped time contractions and helped us decide when to go to the hospital. She helped me and my husband during all 14 hours of labor and delivery! She was a critical component to my wonderful experience at the hospital and the birth of my baby. She helped me through the pains of labor and helped keep me calm during contractions. I did not want or need any pain medications or IV during labor because I had such a great support team. I highly reccomend Elizabeth as a doula and am proud of my birth experience.
