Elysia was amazing! We hired her for support with the birth of our first child, Vivian, born in September of 2014. Elysia helped prepare us for the delivery with pre-natal visits to our home. Having her present for my delivery was invaluble. My delivery did not go exactly as planned (whose does?), and Elysia was there to advocate for me and calmly explain my options each step of the way. In addition to helping me through my labor, I was especially impressed at how she was able to keep my husband calm and expalin what was happening, during the times that my midwife and nurses were focusing on me. This really kept him from feeling like an 'outsider' to the process. After the delivery, she was there to answer all my questions about the baby, breastfeeding and recovery.
I would HIGHLY recommend Elysia to anyone, and will definitely hire her again should we decide to have another!
