Testimonial for Joanne Dahill

My husband and I were very pleased with Joanne during our first pregnancy & delivery, so much so that we called her again when pregnant with our second. I appreciated being able to call or email Joanne after prenatal care visits to discuss anything that came up, what the midwives were saying, etc. I found her feedback to be very reassuring and comforting. My first labor & delivery experience went so quickly that I don't have a lot of vivid memories of Joanne's presence then, but I do recall her helping apply a lot of counterpressure to ease the back labor I felt. My husband has said many times how grateful he was to have her there, mostly because she coached him on measures he could take to help relieve my pain, etc.

When we engaged Joanne during our second pregnancy, she was willing to be flexible with us about the services we needed since we had already done it all just a couple years before. My second labor/delivery experience was relatively quick, too, but I have more memory of her presence -- I remember her being upbeat, enthusiastic, and very encouraging, which was helpful because there were times when I wasn't sure things were progressing as quickly as they should have been. She also provided and instructed me on the use of her TENS unit, which I found to be very tremendously helpful in distracting me from the most painful contractions. 

I have no doubt that having Joanne on our team (along with my husband and fabulous midwives and nurses) was instrumental in helping me achieve the two unmedicated labors I really wanted. I would enthusiastically recommend her to anyone looking for a competent, experienced, reassuring doula.
