My labor experience was more comfortable thanks to my doula Sydney. I don't know how I would have done without her. She kept me positive and encouraged throughout my labor, even when the pain was unbearable, she went above and beyond with making me feel comfortable. She used words of encouragement, massages and held my hand even when I wasn't making it easy to be around, she stuck by me. She remained calm and poised through the entire experience.
