Testimonial for Anne Wallen, CLD, CLDT, CPD, CPDT, CLSE, EpiDoula

I began to look for a doula, on the advice of my midwife, not completely convinced I needed one.  I had already decided, if at all possible, on a natural, unmedicated childbirth facilitated by a team of midwives at a free standing birth center.  I thought the services of a doula were to provide support and bring a more holistic approach to a hospital birth.  Being that I had the midwives and the birth center already lined up, what more could a doula do, I reasoned?

Then the midwife explained to me that a talented doula, with whom I felt comfortable, could provide invaluable support at home before going to the birth center.  She could provide support during the birth in a way to compliement the midwifery care, and could follow up at home as well.

Anne did this and so much more.  She came to visit and get to know us at our home on several occassions.  She was available by phone and text for questions anytime.  She offered her experience and referrals for everything from breastmilk storage bags to pediatricians.  And when it came time to labor, her presence was unobtrusive and incredibly supportive.  She made an effort to get to know my husband and I and find our what was important to us.  She was able to not only respond to our requests, but anticipate our needs and reassure us that everything was ok throughout our journey.

Her years of experience within and around the birth process were exactly what we needed.  Anne is not only a mother herself, but has years of varied birth experiences.  She will get to know you and find our how she can best help you to have the birth experience you most desire.
