Erin Benson

I’ve procrastinated sitting down to write Courtney a proper review because I’m having a hard time putting into words how grateful I am for her during my pregnancy, labor and delivery, and postpartum. My husband and I found her late in my pregnancy but she was there for us and answered any questions we had promptly. During my labor and delivery, she helped my husband perform comfort techniques on me and fostered a calm, soothing environment for us. She helped put my husband at ease with everything that was going on. During my postpartum period, Courtney came over to our home several times to check up on us and watch our son for a few minutes. She even came over for a whole day to take care of Jack when we moved when he was 3 months old!

I cannot say enough good things about Courtney and how much she helped us have the (relatively) peaceful, natural birth that I had dreamed of having. We will absolutely be using her services for our next little one, hands down.

Courtney made my birthing experience the personal safe environment I was worried about not getting in the hospital. Courtney really cares about what she is doing and knows her facts when it comes to alternative options instead of being pressured by my doctor to do things the way was more convenient for her. She spoke on my behalf about my dispositions and made sure I was aware of decisions being made by nurses behind my back and supported whatever discussion throughout all my options. She is reliable and an overall upstanding person and I couldn't be more thankful to have had her there for me on this special day. She made my labor pain threshold change entirely with her pressure points and compressions of the glutes and hips when pain in my sacrum was killing me and beating the crap out of me!! That helped me so much and having someone coach me coming from a serene soft grounded center instead of just the nurses made me so much less stressed and gave me confidence and assurance that I could do this . 5 out of 5 most deffinately !!!
