Absolutely everything! Cortney was essential in my birth process. She was calm, collective, supportive, educated, helpful, loving, empathetic, and empowering. Not just for me but my fiancé/father of the child, and my mom. She was able to give them recommendations on ways to help me and to help them selves also. She was there through every up and down for a good 24 hours i want to say she was there with us. She was able to explain what was happening in a calm demeanor as my entire natural birth plan was unraveling to pieces leading up to an emergency c section. I couldn’t have done it without her and i highly recommend her to any women who needs an advocate and support system outside of family who can be more emotional then actually helpful when things become very stressful. She continues to be a great support and someone i plan to use in the future for any other births and I’m so blessed to have had the chance to work with her and have her be apart of my first labor experience even if it didn’t go how i planned. She made it all easier. She even got some great photos of me and my family while i was in labor ??. Thank you so much Cortney, love Holly and little Forrest !
Highly recommend Cortney as your birth support person and doula. Cortney was in training when we first met, but you would have never known. As a mama to 2 littles, she brought personal experience to the table that really resonated with me. She provided me with numerous resources to prepare for an all natural birth with my husband as my coach. When I had questions about my choices, she always provided non biased information so I could make the most informed and best decision for myself and my family. When the time came to give birth, she coached me through the early laboring hours and when nothing went according to plan, validated my feelings and helped me feel in control of what I could control. She was there when we needed her and faded away when we didn’t. She went above and beyond to take birth photos and came back the following day to capture our first baby meeting our second baby. Finally, when medical complications were happening and breastfeeding was failing, she provided me support and resources to help me succeed in my journey. I am grateful. Cortney is calming, confident in her skills and knowledge, and felt like a best friend holding your hand through it all. ??
