Testimonial for Bethany Fenlason

My husband and I chose Bethany to be our doula for the birth of our son. We were first time parents and were looking for someone to help us stay true to our wishes during his birth. At our first meeting with Bethany, she gave us a list of birthing books that she recommended. Ina May Gaskin's, Guide to Childbirth was one I choose to read off that list. That book resonnated with me, and from then on, I knew what type of birth I would like to have. We met with Bethany several times to discuss our hopes and fears regarding the birth of our son. We wanted all natural, so she connected us with two excellent teachers of The Bradley Method. Bethany even attended a couple of the classes with us.

Bethany came and did home visits with us to further discuss the birth. She helped us with our birth plan, gave us suggestions on what to pack for the hospital, and gave us evidence based research for any questions we had.

The birth of our son did not go exactly as intended, we had many interventions that my husband and I hadn't planned on. With each new scenerio that came up, Bethany kept us level headed. She helped us walk through the knowledge that we had to make informed decisions. No matter what we decided to do, she supported us. At a time of disorder and stress, Bethany brought about a calm environment filled with love.
