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

My husband and I had our first child last May, and Anne was a huge part in preparing us both for labor, delivery and parenthood. She educated both of us about the process of childbirth and recovery. When it came time to deliver she provided the calm strength needed for not only me, but for my husband and mother as well. The moment I told her I was in labor she was on the way to our house. Anne stayed with us through the entire labor, and her presence was soothing and her knowledge was extremely valuable. After several hours of labor my husband and I decided to follow the midwifes recommendation for an epidural and pitosin. Though we had wanted a fully natural birth at that point it was clear that I needed some help, and it was the right decision for me and my son. After four hours of pushing and 26 hours in labor my son came into this world and greeted us face up. I have no doubt in my mind that if we had not had Anne supporting us and a wonderfiul midwife team that our son would have been a c-section birth. Anne was able to give us the knowledge, guidance and support to have our son without the need of a c-section. The classes that Anne taught about childbirth prepared both my husband and myself for caring for a newborn. The knowledge that she passed on to us gave us the confidence to take home our son, care for his needs and bond with him. Anne is a large part of our families wonderful birth story.
