Krystal was AMAZING!  My husband and I were hesitant to hire a doula as it was our second birth however I am so happy we did! Krystal had many calming techniques that really helped with our natural birth.  I highly recommend Krystal and I pass on her info every chance I get.

Krystall was our doula for the birth of my first baby in September 2015, and I am so glad she was. Without a doubt, her presence, knowledge, support, and patience made my 25 hour labor/delivery so much more empowering than it would have been otherwise.  

Krystall was with us from 6 am Friday to 3 am Saturday. We spent a few hours at home laboring/napping and then she met us at the hospital when it was go time. She was so calm, so patient, and so supportive of my decisions, from the decision to have a hospital delivery to the decision (at hour like, 23) to get an epidural to help coax baby out. She obviously has extensive experience and offered great comfort tips and advice for both my husband and me at every stage, without ever interfering or judging.  

She brought amazing lavender heating pads for my back. She negotiated with nurses for us and snagged a wireless monitor when they said that there weren't any, allowing me to stay in my delicious hot shower a little longer. She encouraged me (and my husband) when things were exceptionally difficult, and she helped me talk through my medical options when I could not articulate anything except "I AM SO TIRED PLEASE JUST GET THIS BABY OUT." She even brought my husband dinner at like 1 am!  Without Krystall it would have just been us in a room...having a baby, I guess? It would have felt isolated and bewildering--despite the birthing classes we took and the fact that we had great nurses.

I cannot overstate what a positive difference Krystall made in my birthing experience.  I feared the pain of childbirth my whole life.  And it was course painful, but I felt so strong and awesome throughout the whole thing--it ended up being an extremely positive experience!  Honestly, I was kind of surprised at how positive it was.  And no small part of that was due to Krystall's presence and support.  I recommend her wholeheartedly.

Labor is hard work (obviously!) but having Krystal as my Doula was such a relief. My husband has said since the birth that he does not know what we would have done without her. Her presence allowed him to sneak off and take a little rest and get something to eat. She gave him tips on things that he could help to make me more comfortable and assured him that all of the things that happened during my labor were quite normal. Crystal came prepared with honey sticks for when I was running low on energy but couldn't possibly eat. She helped with my breathing and to focus my strength during contractions and provided awesome overall support throughout my entire labor. Having her was so invaluable and I would definitely use her again.

Krystal has been such a big help and support during my pregnancy and especially during the birth of my little man. She always had a listening ear and great advice. During the birth she encouraged me with helping words and helped me through each contraction. She also helped me relax during the contractions. Besides helping me she explained certain birth related things to my husband and helped him with advices pn how he can support me during childbirth. It was a all over awesome experience. I would hire her again in a heartbeat.

Krystal Trammell was my doula for my 3rd birth and hiring her was the best decision I ever made! She was my 'calm,' when everything and everyone else was crazy! Often times other people who are present during a birth are more excited about getting baby there as soon as possible and forget about the mothers experience and what the birthing process means to the mother. Krystal was there for ME and never once left my side unless it was to get something for me. She knew exactly what to say and more importantly WHEN to say it! She knew the type of birth I wanted (as little interference as possible) and did everything She could to make it happen. I cannot speak highly enough about Kystal and her abilities to help ensure the birthing process is exactly what YOU want it to be. Krystal has a great wealth of knowledge about birth, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and mothering in general. I could talk to her for days and never get bored because of her first hand experience in all things birthing related! I truly can't say enough wonderful things about her! I wish we weren't done having babies because I would totally go through natural childbirth again as long as she was by my side! She's that AWESOME!
