My experience with Candice was amazing! The two preparatory meetings we had before going into labor helped to put my partner and me at ease. I had a long labor, and Candice was there through it all - from the first call at 1:30am ("we think this might be it... should we go to the hospital?") to 1:05am the next morning when our baby boy was born.
My labor was not just long, but was fraught with somewhat unexpected health concerns, and at least one shift change at the hospital. Candice remained as a bright spot of reliability through it all - she knew what my partner and I wanted and was familiar enough with both of us and our personalities that she knew when to ask what questions. Her presence really allowed my partner to be fully present with me, rather than worrying about the doctors and nurses.
I honestly can't imagine what my labor would have been like without Candice being a part of it. I know that the whole process - from my seventh month of pregnancy until our baby boy was in my arms - would have been a more scary, more lonely, and less happy prospect without her.
I'm happy to be reached out to with any questions or an over the phone endorsement of Candice's services.
