As a Certified Childbirth Educator that maintains an active membership with ICEA, I conduct classes in the community for low and no cost, on hormones, wellness, body awareness, fertility and classes for young ladies going through puberty. I offer low cost doula services for teen mothers, and those considering adoption. I frequently work with area midwives to offer excellent continuity of care. I'm a Certified Herbalist, so I'm truly a birth educator, doula and practitioner that offers full scope care for the childbearing year. I am active with ICAN, as a mother with 2 previous C-Sections and 8 VBA2C (8 vaginal births after 2 c-section) , and maintain awareness of current local birth culture issues, as well as providers in the area.
My experience with Andrea was absolutely amazing! I did not think I would need nor desired to have a doula present at the birth of my firstborn. However my midwives insisted that it would be a good idea.
My labor progressed fairly quickly. We were waiting for the birthing center to open up after an earlier birth that morning. I was thankful to have Andrea as we almost had the baby at my house, which we definitely were not prepared for. She stepped up and started to prepare the house just in case, though we finally got the okay to head to the center.
At the birth center, I started to experience pretty intense back labor. She showed us a spot on my back that could be pressed in order to relieve some of the pain (which she faithfully did throughout the rest of my labor) There were times I thought I couldn't go any further and she was always right there to encourage me that I could.
Even after my son was born, I've been able to ask Andrea questions throughout the postpartum period. I 100% recommend Andrea for your birth experience. She is faithful, loving, understanding, and a true servant.
I can’t say enough amazing things about Andrea! Not only is she responsive all the time, she does what she does because she loves to help women and serves the Lord. She has a heart to help and she isn’t about the “money” or anything else. She is also so knowledgeable and been able to provide advice in so many areas, not only my life and health but my toddlers health. She has been a blessing to me!
