Testimonial for Allison Connor

When my wife suggested that we contact Allison to discuss her assistance in the upcoming birth of our son, I had never before heard of a doula and had no idea what her function would be. The closest correlation that I could make was to that of a midwife, and having already found an ob/gyn that we were quite comfortable with to deliver our baby, I failed to see the need for the assistance of this strange, unfamiliar "doula" that she spoke of.
 I agreed to a meeting with Allison, fully expecting to come away with affirmation of my misgivings. However, during the course of that first meeting, I became a believer. Not only was Allison able to allay my fears at the thought of introducing another participant into this very intimate occasion, but her knowledge, professionalism and disarming demeanor encouraged me to view her participation as a necessity. We acquired her services immediately.
 She became, and remains, an integral part of our family. Including her in the extraordinary event of the birth of our son Reed turned out to be one of the best decisions that we have ever made. When we get pregnant again, you can be sure that the first call we make will be to Allison; and this time the only decision to make will be hers..."Should I take them up on their request for me to move in with them for the next nine months?"
