Hiring Amy as our doula was THE BEST DECISION we could have made for ourselves and our new baby boy. Before we got pregnant, I didn't know much about doulas, but a good friend recommended hiring one for the birth of our son.
Without a doubt, having Amy at our side during the entire journey of pregnancy and birth was priceless. Not only did she calm our fears, she also educated us, helped us prepare a birth plan and was always available when I had concerns or questions. I felt so fortunate I could just text or pick up the phone to get help when needed. She opened our eyes to birth options we didn't know were available. She was able to calmly communicate with our doctors and nurses during delivery, be our advocate & speak in ways we could understand. Looking back, I can absolutely see how our hospital birth could have gone a different way if Amy hadn't been there with us to keep us on track with our birth plan. She spoke up to hospital staff on our behalf when they wanted to try things other ways.
After we got home from the hospital, Amy came to our home and we were able to talk though and revisit the birth of our son since he needed to be in the NICU for 2 days. It was so helpful to be able to process it all again and get some closure. She even helped me get some additional chores out of the way, reassured us through additional questions we had and helped us give our boy a bath.
I would hire Amy again in a heartbeat!
Words can not express how grateful we were to have Amy during our pregnancy. She is very knowledgeable and was always available when I needed advice, had questions or concerns. We wanted a natural delivery and with the different techniques, positions and encouragement she gave we were able to achieve that. If we decided to have another baby we would definitely choose to have Amy there again!
From well before our birth to well afterwards, Amy was the perfect match for us as our doula. Before the birth, she called every one of my fears, helped educate me and teach me about natural birth practices of which I was unaware and never once rebuffed any of my more emotional pre-birth moments.
When I finally went into labor Amy was there from the very start. She helped coach me through the uncertain start all the way to the birth center. During my labor I couldn't have asked for a more kind, sincere and calming presence. She was encouraging, steady and supportive. She knew exactly what I was and never wavered in her support of the birth she knew we wanted.
After we went home, she came to the house, brought a hot meal, cleaned, did my laundry and sat and talked with me. She offered a nap but I was happy to just be. She is the consummate professional in addition to being kind, caring and knowledgeable. I can't wait to have her support us again during our next birth!
