Testimonial for Cheryl Murfin, MA/IAEd, CD

Cheryl was and continues to be a blessing in me and my family's life.

Although using the Midwives at UCLA, who were exceptional, I wanted a Doula to be an advocate for me and my husband if our minds weren't in the most rational places.  Cheryl not only did that but so much more than I could've imagined.

Cheryl directed my husband for his health, telling him when he should go eat -- regardless of his lack of appetite, when I should switch positions, regardless of the fact I didn't want to move at all, and providing us both calm explanation for the different things we were experiencing both physically and in regards to hospital procedure.

Cheryl was the first one to see that my contractions were coupling and the nutruring enegy I needed when, after no other way was possible, I had to let go of my natural birth hopes for a necessary emergency c-section.

After all was done, because of Cheryl's words and knowlege, I didn't leave the operating room feeling taken advantage of, or forced to do something I didn't want to do.

In the most vulnerable of positions I felt powerful and womanly and Cheryl helped fascilitate that experience for me.

Now she continues to check in on me and my husband, and daughter.  I can call her or text her with questions and concerns whenever and she is always prompt and kind.

Simply put, my husband and I couldn't imagine how we could've navigated that day without her.
