We hired Misty as our doula with our second child. I can't imagine not having a doula again. Misty was very knowledgeable and answered so many questions I had during pregnancy. My experience with the pregnancy and birth of my first child was vastly different than my second. I felt very prepared and confident in myself having Misty as my doula. Misty arrived at our home when I was in labor. She worked with me on different positions to help get me more comfortable as well as lots of massage! It was so nice being able to labor in the comfort of my own home with my family there. When we dicided it was time to head to the hospital Misty followed. I was very surprised and shocked to find out I was already 8cm dialated. Everything after that went pretty quickly. We did have time to labor in the tub which was something I looked forward to. I wouldn't have made it through the pushing phase without Misty's lovingness and constant reassurance I was doing a great job. After my son was born Misty stayed with me while my husband was with our son who was having a little bit of a hard time at first. She was explaining to me what was going on and that everything was going to be fine. It was fine. I will always cherish those first pictures she was able to capture of my little family.
Misty was a huge help with breastfeeding support. Any questions or concerns I had, I texted her and she would always help me through it. I continue to have communication with Misty and she continues to check in to see how everyone is. I highly recommend a doula and even more so I recommend Misty. The massage alone was worth double! ;)
I knew I grabbed Misty’s arm when I needed the strength to keep pushing. She had been there by my side for the weeks I was in early labor and the prior two days non-stop. She helped get me in a better position and to relax! She makes you feel so loved when you feel scared, kind of gross and your husband looks like a deer in front of head lights. I don’t think my active labor would have been as fast without her. I achieved my birth plan give or take a couple surprises. Misty was by my side during the hardest most beautiful day of my life. There is no one else I would have wanted to cut the cord. Not to mention, she managed to take the sweetest photos, especially of my husband holding him for the first time! Misty is worth her weight in gold!
We had a great experience with Misty. Before our son’s birth Misty was always easily accessible and happy to pop by if we ever needed anything. She had delivered her boys at the hospital we were using, and it was nice knowing she had been there before and could give us tips on arrival. I had an extremely quick labor, So Misty met us at the hospital. She was a supportive and peaceful presence, stepping in to help whenever she noticed a need. After our birth, she took sweet pictures of my husband and me with our baby, which I love! Misty came by to see our son after we got home and has checked in several times to make sure we are doing well. We would highly recommend working with Misty as a birth doula!
My name is Ashley and I had Misty as my doula. I knew what a doula was to a degree and what they could provide, misty did just that and offered so much more. From informational videos, exercises, answering scary labor and delivery questions, to kiensiotaping, to stretches, a rebozo, and everything in between.
I learned so much on techniques to flip a baby in utero (safely) so they are in perfect position for birth. I learned what exercises to do to open up my pelvis. How to tape for extra support, and so much more!
One of the biggest helps misty was for me was just having her there for labor and delivery for extra support. It was nice to have her around my family to prevent any drama. She also listened to my wishes and respected them and tried to get my birth plan to go as planned. She knew exactly what I wanted and didnt want from discussing my birth plan and she accommodated my needs. I recommend her to everyone I know because she was amazing to have for pregnancy, labor and delivery
