I don't know how we would have made it through the last few daus without Chandler. My best friend was told on 8/25 that her 38week son had passed away, and she would have to be induced and deliver him stillborn. It was obviously overwhelming news, and we didn't know who to turn to. Luckily a friend recommended we get a doula ASAP, but not just any doula...a doula with personal and professional experience with stillbirth. Chandler rushed to the hospital from over an hour away to be with Rachel, Sean, and the rest of us.
Her expertise, calming presence, and "you will get through this" attitude were exactly what we all needed. Before this I has no experience with doulas, and expected them to all be older hippies I think ;) But Chandler was right around our age and totally unassuming. She had the perfect balance of empathy, professionalism, humor, and warmth. Chandler is great!
Chandler was such a wonderful addition to our birthing team! She was very knowledgeable about the process- really helped me understand what was happening to me and what I could expect next. Most importantly though, she was just extremely supportive throughout my 38 hour labor! She spent hours and hours with me both at my house and the hospital, massaging my back, helping me into positions that might expediate a labor that was frustratingly not progressing on its own. I am so grateful for Chandler's support throughout my delivery and highly recommend her to any family.
