Testimonial for Vanessa Flanders

This is my second child and I never had a doula before.  When I first met Vanessa, she impressed me with just our first meeting. She was very knowledgeable about the duties and techniques of a doula. I was very pleased with what she had to offer.

We met twice before my daughter was born. She came with info and practice techniques for me and by husband. We came up with my birthing plan. She was very receptive to my needs, desires, and fears.

The day of my daughter's birth. It was a scheduled induction and Vanessa was there the every step of the way. She was 100% dedicated even though I urged her to take breaks! She made it very clear that she was here for me and to help me through this. My goal was to get to 5cm or 7cm natural and then then get an epidural as I was too afraid of going the full nine without any medication. And Low and behold I actually ended up having a natural birth. Vanessa was so helpful I know 100% I could not have done a natural labor without her and my husband. She kept me moving and encouraged me. She took pictures of my new family and stayed until we were ready to me moved to the post/recovery room.

She visited me 1 week after the baby was born. She gave me my birthing story and a very special handmade gift for my daughter. She gave me a verbal of her overall view of how everything went. It was bittersweet visit. Happy I wasnt pregnant anymore but sad as I wont see her anymore.

I HIGHLY recommend Vanessa. She is excellent and very capable of being your Doula. I am a tough critic and I have absolutley nothing to say but postive things of her behalf.

Vanessa thank you again for being my Doula!!
