Jill Gardner

I cannot say how happy I am that Bonnie was a part of my baby's birth. She empowered me in so many ways which allowed me to be able to fullfill my birth plan. I wanted to labor at home as long as possible and have a natural birth. I am convinced that without her by my side I would have had a much harder time dealing with the pain and would have demanded an epidural. She talked me through contractions and used a hands on approach to ease the pain. She was incredibly encouraging and supportive. She is also very medically knowledgable and acted as a sort of liason between the nurses and midwife and I which was nice because I was busy focusing on contractions. She also made my fiance feel comfortable with the whole process and helped give him a break durring labor. Not only was she helpful before and after birth but she has also been a great resource and sounding board through my struggles with postpartum depression. She is a selfless soul who has the ability to bring calm to a stressful situation. You will not regret your decision if you choose her as your doula!

Bonnie did a wonderful job being our doula. My fiance and I got together many times before the birth to discuss our birth plan with her. She was very informative with all of the questions and concerns we had. When contractions came on she was right there by Jill's side coaching her through each one. At the hospital she made sure our birth plan was implimented with the staff. She was also very attentive to Jill's needs and concerns during labor. I wish we would have had her durring our first pregnancy. Our experance with Bonnie could not have been any better or gone any smoother. I highly recomend her for anyone looking for a no hasssle birth.
