Oh boy where to start...we are a military family new to the area and we were expecting our 2nd son. I had heard that Megan was a doula through some fellow mom friends and I reached out. Right away we met and totally clicked. Her calm, open and approachable demeanor makes for and ideal doula.
Throughout my pregnancy I recieved prenatal massages with additional craniosacral treatments for releases of discomfort that often comes with pregnancy.
Although our birth didnt goes as planned (as most tend not to ;) ) Megan was right there holding my hand and laughing and crying and soaking up the arrival of our 8lb baby boy Leo.
She even visited after his birth and provided craniosacral therapy for Leo to provide relief from his colic.
Her varied skills from yoga, massage, doula training and overall awesomeness makes her invaluable as a doula as you welcome your miracle earthside.
Megan was my "Doula" before she even knew she wanted to be a Doula. 13 years ago, I gave birth to my first born daughter, Ava. The birthing experience didn't go as planned...AT ALL. I had to have an emergency C-section after hours upon hours of pushing to no avail... I am extremely claustrophobic. Part of my birthing plan was that, should I have to have an emergency C-section, they were NOT to strap down my arms during the procedure. Well, because the anesthesiologist apparenlty gave me a "high block" ( which didn't know what this was until years later when pregnant with my second daughter), I lilterally lost my mind in the operating room as I couldn't feel myself breath. Because of my panic, they in turn attempted to strap my arms down and give me oxygen at the same time. Which again, for anyone who has claustrophobia you can imagine this did not go over too well. Megan was there with me during the entire pushing process and normally they would only allow the father in the OR, but they made this exception because of my condition to allow Megan to come in as well. Megan was able to relax me during the process, she got to witness her first C-section, and when all was said and done, they knocked me out so they could put me back together after my daughter was born. When I woke up, who was there yet again to comfort me? Megan. I honestly don't think I could have made it through this very stressful yet magical time without her by my side. With her caring, calming, and nuturing nature...she was born for this "job". Love, Love, Love Megan and so thankful every day that she was there for me!
