Testimonial for Anne Schuchman

My husband and I had a great experience with Anne from the start! We had 3 meetings before the birth and 1 after the birth. She was very informative in the meetings, answered all of our questions, and gave me books to read before the birth.She asked questions so that she could get a good sense of the birth we wanted to have. We also discussed techniques she could use while I was in labor to help ease any discomfort. I felt very confident going into the birth because I knew Anne and I had developed a solid plan and she would be by our side to help us through each stage. While my birth didn't go exactly as planned (I had to be induced) Anne helped me adjust to the new situation and reassured me I could still have the birth I wanted. She thought of other ways to allow me to still have the comfortable, natural birth I wanted. Since I was hooked up to an IV, I could not get out of bed to walk around like I had wanted to. Anne helped me adapt to this by suggesting different positions I could do in bed to ease the discomfort. I took Hypnobirthing classes before the birth so Anne used those techniques to help me relax between contractions.She was great at reminding me to use my breathing throughout the labor, which really helped. She used massaging and applying pressure techniques to help get me through the tougher contractions.Everything she did really helped me through each part of the labor and made me a lot more comfortable than I expected to be.She was also a great support for my husband. I had a strong sense of confidence throughout the whole birth because I knew she was by our side. Anne has a very calm demeanor that helped keep my husband and I calm through every part of the birth. She was a huge part in helping me have the natural birth I set out to have. And aside from being a great doula, she is a wonderful person that genuinely cares about her clients.I highly recommend her and would definitely have her as my doula if we have more children!
