Ann far exceeded the expectations we had going into the birth of our first child. Ann sat down with us multiple times before the birth of our first baby and extensively reviewed our birth goals. She was also available by phone or email to answer any questions that arose during the pregnancy. Ann offered extensive insight into the birth process and made every effort to ensure the delivery aligned with our birth goals. Ann advocated directly on our behalf with the hospital staff and immediately established an extremely positive working relationship with the nurses and midwife involved in the delivery. My husband and I both felt very comfortable with Ann throughout the entire process and feel that she was an indispensable part of our child's birth. We could not have asked for a more effective and compassionate advocate during our delivery. Ann seamlessly transitioned between offering counter pressure and massages during labor to working with the nursing and midwifery staff to ensure we were using effective and comfortable laboring positions to minimize discomfort. My goal was to have a natural childbirth and I am so blessed that I was able to, and I believe having Ann as a constant support in the delivery room made that possible. Birthing Abroad and Ann will definitely be called upon for doula services in the event we have more children.
