Julie Guttmann was well worth every penny that we spent on her and more. She helped us maintain as much of a steady emotional baseline as possible throughout the labor process. Her expertise allowed even my very capable husband the confident feeling of a support system during the birthing process. She was there for us throughout the pregnancy but also after the birth when there were all sorts of unanticipated questions popping up that we never would have anticipated as we became acclimated to the new life in our home. Her advocacy of our natural birth plan and her assistance in helping us to execute it was critical. She is outstanding at interupting the oftentimes unnecessary cascade of interventions that can be pushed on an overwhelmed mother & father when nurses who are uncomfortable/unfamiiar with natural, uninduced, unmedicated childbirth. I am sure that she would be just as capable of advocating for whatever birth choices one might have desire or need for. We love Julie. We will definately use her again if there is an opportunity.
Julie's presence was invaluable. She made a difficult birth into a beautiful birth - and what could have been a frightening experience into a meaningful one. Julie helped my husband to support me and supported both of us when things didn't go as planned. Noah is a happy, healthy two year old now and we still look back with great fondness on his birth - which is in no small part because of Julie!
