My experience with Ann Carter was a wonderful one. When I realized that I was going to have zero support from friends and family (the only exception was my father in-law) the mid-wife that delivered my first child recomended that I hire a doula. I had a week and a half until my due date. I found Ann online and when I called her I feel like we connected right away. She was very understanding of my situation and from the first time we talked I felt confident that I was going to have all the support I was going to need. She called me or texted me during that time to see how I was doing, if i wanted someone to talk to she was available anytime! Even the wee hours. My water broke in the morning and throughout the day she was contacting me to make sure I was ok. I didn't go into labour until that evening, when I called her around 11:00 pm she came to my house and sat and talked to me until my contractions were at the point that the midwives wanted me to come in. Around 3:00 am. She followed me to the birthing center, while my father in-law drove me and my 2 year old. When we arrived at the birthing center she was at my side the entire time. She held my hand, rubbed my back, brought me water or juice if I wanted it. She was great!! She talked me through the worst contractions and helped me focus my energy on delivering my baby. I don't know what I would have done if she had not been there. She stayed with me until I was comfortable and resting. She gave me words of wisdom on my transition into being mommy for two. I will treasure my experience with ann for the rest of my life. She helped bring my beautiful son into the world. I would highly recomend Ann, you will find her to be warm, compassionate and knowledgeable.
