Shelia was amazing. She played a crucial roll in the healthy birth of our baby boy. She is extremely personable, we felt connected to her the moment we met her. She was very communicative and reponsive throughout my pregnancy. She answered all of our questions and provided resources that made us more comfortable with the birthing process. On the day of our birth, she responded to my husbands calls very early in the morning and arrived at our home to assist the moment we felt we needed her. She came prepared with labor positions and helped make the labor process as comfortable as possible for my husband and me. During the birth at the hospital she was there every step of the way, helping my husband and myself cope, massaged, took pictures, and was an advocate for me.
Shelia wrote up our birthstory as a letter to our son days after his birth. It was beautiful and something we'll treasure. She also shared her pictures with us, and came over for an after birth home visit. She has checked in my times and is truly interested in our well being and knowing how our son is doing.
All this to say, Shelia is caring, condifent, and very capable in what she does. We could not imagine our birth without her there. We would highly recommend her to our friends and look forward to working with her again with our future children.
