Shannon was a great doula. She helped through labor and delivery with my first child and it was a very memorable experience. My water broke at 11:30 on a Thursday morning and I immediately called Shannon followed by my husband. We met at the hospital at 1:00 p.m. where Shannon convinced the doctor on duty to let me try to get my labor started by walking for about 6 hours instead of starting pitocin right away. When I did end up having to start pitocin, she helped me to cope with each contraction one at a time without the use of an epidural as I had requested. I ended up laboring until 8:31 Friday morning when my daughter was born and Shannon stayed up with me the whole time whether I needed someone to walk with me or just assure me that it would in fact come to an end and that I was coping with it well. Shannon helped to deal with any problems I had with the staff and helped my husband also to comfort me as best he could. Both me and my husband were pleased with her skilled service and I would definitely reccomend her to anyone looking for a doula.
