Testimonial for Janet Gordon, CD/PCD(DONA), CLC, LCCE

I had the pleasure of having Janet as my first doula for my first natural birth experience. Although it was my 4th birth, I had never birthed without medication and outside of a hospital, but my dream was a birth center water birth (and it came true!). I knew I needed support and encouragement from a mother figure. I felt a connection with Janet immediately. She was resourceful and knowledgeable, providing me with information to better prepare for birth and breastfeeding and general decision making (she was also very support of my decisions and empowered me); she was someone to share my heart with (all of the excitements and concerns that come with pregnancy and the postpartum stage/mothering newborns) and she was genuinely caring, encouraging and very attentive. Her presence alone calmed me during labor and she was supportive not only of myself, but of my husband, empowering him to be a useful birth partner, sharing comfort techniques with him and making sure we were both okay. She always communicated with me to be sure what she was doing was helpful to me, her words of encouragement during contractions were welcome, her voice soothed me! When we got pregnant again we knew we wanted her by our side for this birth also. Our eldest daughter (9) attended the birth and Janet was a great support to her too! She made it another wonderful memory for us and a good experience with childbirth for our daughter. She kept her company while I labored intimately with my husband by my side and kept her informed as to what was occurring at the different stages of labor. Janet did such an awesome job making sure we were all taken care of during that time! My family has received so much love and support during and after our pregnancies/births from her and we know she would provide that same attention, love, care and knowledge to anyone who invites her to come alongside them during such a special season of life. We truly treasure her and you will too!
