Client Testimonials for Stephi Anderson

Mickey Dillon

Stephi has been our rock throughout not one, but two pregnancies. While not working with HDC at the time of our first and most of our second pregnancies, she brings a wealth of knowledge, support, and passion to her craft. She provides a steady hand to hold (figuratively and literally) when you have doubts and concerns, but she is candid about realistic expectations as well. She provides abundant resources to her clients, including live online classes and exercises (which many doulas would typically only do in person). She is supportive of just about any reasonable birth plan you can come up with, though we were pretty much the typical "have the baby naturally in a hospital" couple. As a man, it's tough to feel like I have the right to have an opinion on things having to do with childbirth since I am not the one carrying the child, but she encouraged me to educate myself, ask questions, form opinions and participate in the process in more than just a "be there for her" kind of way. She is always happy to provide support, information, or peace of mind (whichever is most appropriate at the time).

On a personal level, she is one of the most open-minded, caring, and passionate people I know, and anyone who has had the pleasure of her services would agree. I haven't provided much in the way of details of our experiences (though I have still managed to say a lot), but if I did provide details of how much she has improved our experiences, I would run out of space. If any of the other doulas at HCD are half as good as she is, then you would be in great hands with them. Highly recommend.
