It’s difficult for my husband and I to articulate just how impactful Amy was during my pregnancy and labor. When we first met Amy we were struck by her positive energy and enthusiasm. We knew that her’s was the support we wanted during our journey. Amy provided us with multiple prenatal meetings during which we had lunch, coffee, and went on a walk. She took the time to get to know my husband and I as a couple and to understand the thoughts and emotions we had around our pregnancy.
When we chose to leave our primary caregiver and seek out other birth options, Amy was always available to speak about my concerns and offer perspective and encouragement. She helped my husband and I to feel confident in the choices we made and provided us with additional educational materials when we had questions.
During my labor, Amy was my champion. She was always by my side with food, water and positive affirmations. Amy was quick to suggest new laboring positions and to try different comfort measures. She supported my husband so that he could rest as well. Amy constantly affirmed my strength and my progress through a long period of pushing. Her touch and her calm nature made me feel safe and immensely supported.
After our daughter’s birth, Amy made my husband and I dinner and did not leave our home until we were comfortable. We have seen her multiple times since the birth and continue to feel her love and support. Amy also leads a new Mom’s group in her home, which I look forward to attending.
We cannot recommend Amy enough. When it comes time for us to have another child, we hope that Amy can be convinced to fly to our new station as we can’t imagine a labor without her!
