Testimonial for Grace Burson

I found Grace later into my pregnancy,  at the recommendation of a mutual friend. I had already been thinking of contacting her,  from information she had posted around town. She is very friendly and down to earth,  and we have similar interests.  All of our pre-labor meetings went fine.

When it comes time for actual labor,  nothing goes according to plan of course.  I was 10 days early and really assumed it was just false labor, though I had notified my ob and Grace, in case it was real.

1am, definitely real.  Again,  notified Grace we were going to hospital but didn't feel I immediately needed her.  By 145, I had my husband call her again to come in.

We ended up using none of our discussed positions and techniques. Not because grace was not willing,  but because I was not willing.  She however,  did exactly what I said I wanted as I wanted it and provided my husband with a but of relief from not having to be the only one dealing with my crazy requests.

My only regret with using Grace as doula is that I did not get to use all of her skills.  I arrived at the hospital at 120 and at 342 my baby girl entered the world.  We had some concerns afterwards and again,  having grace there as a backup with my husband meant that while I was worried,  I knew I would get all of the information I needed.

I would recommend having a doula to anyone and specifically and especially Grace. Having a baby is hard but Grace made it easier.
