Testimonial for Corinne Bargen

Corinne was our back-up doula, and prior to the birth we had met only once before. At that time I was pretty sure I would try for a VBAC, but was also considering a repeat C-section. I felt immediately that Corinne would confidently, gently, and non-judgmentally support me in either choice. I did try for a VBAC, and Corinne supported me in my labour at the hospital exactly in the ways I asked, and also offered things I might not have thought of. At one point in my labour I got quite scared and Corinne was there supporting me and helping me feel safe and confident in my choices. Corrine cheered me on throughout the birth, and did not reveal if she was tired or sore herself. I pushed for more than three hours, but due to all the encouragement from Corinne (including holding up one of my legs the entire time!!), my midwife, and my partner, not once did I question whether I could continue to push my baby out. And thanks to Corinne's presence of mind, we have a few photos of the baby when she was seconds old. Corinne was a rock solid and positive presence and a key part of our successful VBAC. After the birth, she came to check up on our family and was clearly willing to offer us any kind of support we needed post-partum.
