Testimonial for Cheryl Murfin, MA/IAEd, CD

My husband I interviewed 3 doulas, Cheryl was the first. After the interview we looked and each other and said, "Do we need to interview the others"... she felt like a GREAT fit for us. We did, and it became clearer after each interview, Cheryl was our number one choice. As many births go, mine was not how I dreamed it would go. I planned for a hospital birth, hoping to do most of my laboring at home and unmedicated. I ended up at the hospital sooner than expected because my water broke and labor was stalled. As the Doctors started planning interventions, Cheryl was there every step of the way to suggest alternatives. To my surprise, the doctors seemed very open to all of her suggestions and we tried them. We got out for a power walk after being checking into the hospital, she brought in a great birthing tub that replaced the sad jacuzzi tubs in the hospital rooms and she kept me moving and distracted but still present. Because of her background, knowledge and time in the doula world, she was able to make my experience one that I could not have imagined any other way. She was also an amazing support for my husband as well. She guided him in a way that gave him the confidence to be an active part of my labor. Together, the 3 of us were an amazing "team" that brought my baby girl into this world! If you are looking for a no nonsense, forward thinking, reliable, passionate and genuine doula, Cheryl Murphin is just that. And she'll make you great soup too!
