Testimonial for Cheryl Murfin, MA/IAEd, CD

From the very first meeting we trusted Cheryl completely as a member of our birth team - by the end of the labor and birth experience she felt like a trusted friend, too.
Her calm, reassuring, knowledgeable presence helped us feel calm and confident about the choices we had to make. Things did not go as planned (posterior baby, stalled labor) – and our planned home birth ended in the hospital. What could have been a very scary and negative experience ended up being a beautiful one in large part thanks to Cheryl. From driving ahead of us to the hospital, to helping us ask appropriate questions, to coaching me through the pushing, to just being there next to me, her presence made me feel confident and safe.
Cheryl also helped my husband and I share the birth experience in a more intimate and meaningful way. Her coaching helped Andrew feel like he was doing everything he could to help me. She also took care of countless little things (getting me food and water, heating up rocks, etc) that allowed him to stay by my side where I needed him. And when (after about 18 hours of active labor) he needed a break, she sent him to take a nap so he could be ready for the birth and all everything that follows.
I can’t say enough good things about our experience with Cheryl Murfin. She played such a large part in making our birth story a beautiful one. If we have another child I will call her again without hesitation. I would recommend her to anyone.
