Having Emily as my Doula was the most amazing experience I could have asked for. Going into my third trimester I came to the realization I had no one to be with me during labor and became very panicked. After reaching out through a few local connections, I was introduced to Emily and I can honestly say that it was such an amazing blessing. Emily took the time to meet with me several times before my predicted due date. During these meetings Emily help me put any fears I had to rest as well as helped me become more open-minded about various aspects of my labor and birthing experience to come.
When the time came, Emily stayed overnight with me in the hospital as I was prepared for a scheduled cesarean. It was not what I had hoped for. In fact, I had been extremely opposed to having a cesarean from the first mention of it with my doctors. Again, Emily was able to help me realize that this was the best course of action and she did everything for me from helping me brush my hair to keeping my mind occupied with relaxation techniques to prepare me for the surgery.
Emily was there for me in a way I think a few other people I know could have been and I appreciate her so much for it. She held my hand through the cesarean and although I don't remember much of the end portion of being in the operation room, it was a great relief to me to come to and realize it was her that was getting to hold my daughter add her that handed her to me. Thank you Emily so much for everything you did for me and my little family. We are so blessed to know you and have had you be a part of this amazing experience.
Emily is a wonderful doula, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for calm and reassuring support person who will advocate for you and make you feel heard and empowered, before, during, and after your birth. Emily was present during the birth of my second little girl, and I am so glad she was there! She is both strong and compassionate, which is exactly what I needed. Even though I had already given birth once, our meeting ahead of time really helped me prepare and visualize what I wanted. Her support during the birth was amazing, and being able to process everything with her afterwards was also a very empowering and emotionally healing experience. I will not hesitate to ask her to be my doula again when it's time for baby #3!
