Testimonial for Stephanie Read, CD(DONA), Ayurvedic Doula, RPYT

After expressing to our obgyn that I wanted an unmedicated birth she strongly recommended a doula. After discussing my issues with finding a doula in our area that seemed like they would be a oodles match she suggested Stephanie. I met with her and felt like we immediately clicked. She's funny, positive, down to earth, and very comfortable to be around. I love that she's a good mix of the more holistic side and the traditional medicine side of birth. I knew I would be in good hands and that she would help me achieve my unmedicated goal or help me adjust my goal depending on how my body was reacting to the birth process. We did her childbirth class which my doctor said she preferred over the hospital class. When it came time for the main event I stayed in contact off and on during the day with Stephanie. I was thankful that she was so adamant that mama knows when it's time to go to the hospital. If I had listened to what all the books say our little man may have been born in the truck! We called when we left and she was there as soon as we had a room. She kept me so comfortable and focused throughout labor I don't know if my husband would have been up to the task. It was so wonderful for him to just be able to be there instead of having to coach as well. I honestly don't feel ikea I would have had as wonderful a birth as I did without her guidance and support. We'll be doing it all over again in a couple years and I would want anyone else in there with me!
