I met Wendy several years ago at a local yoga class. She was the instructor, and after the first class I knew her style of teaching was exactly what I needed. Her personality is terrific, and she is so much fun to be around. To date, her class is the only one I've ever attended religiously. In 2016 Wendy was just starting to practice as a doula after taking a break for several years. When I became pregnant with my daughter, I knew I wanted her to be our doula. Throughout my pregnancy she was always available for questions, and offered advice regularity. She also provided me with several resources (books, videos, etc,) that were extremely helpful. When I went into labor, she made her way to the hospital and began offering support immediately. Even though my husband and I attended birthing classes together, and we felt prepared, it seemed he really did not know the best way to help in certain situations. Wendy really took over and was the support I needed. She was there the entire time. Although things did not necessary go as planned, the birth was exactly the way it should have been. Wendy contained to provide support after birth, specifically around breastfeeding. There are really no words to describe how thankful I am that Wendy came into our lives. As I mentioned before, her personality and attitude are terrific, and she was such an important part of my pregnancy and birth story.

Wendy made all of the difference between my two natural births. She was attentive, caring, compassionate and HILARIOUS! I appreciated her thoughtful gestures before labor, during labor, and even after labor. She just seemed to know what I need without me having to ask. Her being there allowed my body to be at ease and to do what it was made to do: birth my baby.
