Client Testimonials for Courtney Buhrman

Larissa Heffner

Courtney was a fabulous doula.  She is the first doula for my one and only birth.  She was very comforting and calm.  I'm not calm.  My husband is calm, but doesn't have the knowledge she did.  My labor was fairly long, at 17 hours and she was there the whole time.  She also helped make sure that my husband got something to eat.  Her personality clicked very well with mine.  She was very personable, yet professional.  I wanted to find one that would almost be more like a friend, rather than a professional.  So for me she was perfect!  I know when I had her she had not had thousands of clients yet, but she was really good for me and my husband; and was willing to answer any questions we had.  I don't plan on having any more children, but if I did, I would definitely use her again!
