I was referred to Nancy by a trusted contact and was not disappointed! I was planning a natural water birth for my first child and had interviewed two other doulas. Nancy was the only doula that took the initiative to come to my home for our interview; she told us about her impressive personal and professional journey and the experience she had gained through having her six children naturally and supporting hundreds of women through their births since the late 1970's. Her competence and positive, soothing energy sold us and we hired her on the spot. Nancy's goal is birth satisfaction, no matter what does and doesn't go according to 'plan'. She helps you to make the best decision possible at each turn and provided solid support for me during an unplanned induction. Drawing from her strength and encouragement, I was able to achieve a pain-med-free birth, even though I had to endure the effects of Pitocin and was tethered due to continuous fetal monitoring. Nancy topped off her birth support with a homemade blanket and a lovely birth story during her postpartum visit. I would highly recommend Nancy's services!
My wife and I could not have gone through this experience any better with the help of the amazing Nancy Abbott. She handled everything professionally, offered tons of actually useful advice before, during, and after labor. I am not a religious person in the least, but Nancy was our angel who shepparded us through the unknown of the first birth. Three months later, we still think of her every day when we look at our baby daughter. She gets 10 stars out of 5.
