Testimonial for Bethany Fenlason

Bethany was my doula for my most recent birth. Our first meeting was while I was in labor (though we could have met sooner, but labor begin sooner than I had planned). I didn't take any childbirth classes, so my knowledge of pain management techniques was minimal, but Bethany explained everything in a way that I was able to process quickly. She helped me work through contractions, and I managed to deliver my baby without pain medication of any kind. Bethany kept me calm, and I felt like she made a BIG difference during labor. While my family members in the room kept insisting that I was going to give in and ask for an epidural, Bethany kept reminding me that I was capable of handling labor on my own. She was especially helpful during my transition. It was helpful to have an advocate there who was familiar with natural labor. I could not have asked for a more supportive doula!

The neatest part was when I delivered, and Bethany had the foresight to take pictures for me with my phone. I wouldn't have thought to ask her to take pictures, but it's nice now to be able to look back and see those first moments of my baby's life.

Overall, my experience with Bethany was GREAT! She has such a calming presence, which is exactly what I needed during labor. I highly recommend her!
