Testimonial for Grace Burson

Grace was absolutely critical to our birthing process.  We ended up in labor for 36 hours and, after all of that, having a C-section.  Grace was emotionally and physically supportive the entire time.  She helped us make decisions about if/when to start Pitocin, if/when to stop using the nitrous oxide and switch to an epidural for pain management, and through it all she was supportive as we tried to use the hypnobirthing techniques that we had practiced.

It was so helpful having another set of hands available during the contractions to help keep my wife calm and relaxed.  Our labor was not short and there wasn't much more than a few minutes between contractions, so it was also nice having someone else in the room so that I could take a quick nap or go use the restroom without leaving my wife completely alone.

Grace helped us make sense of the information we were being given from the nursing staff and make calm, rational, informed decisions.  She helped us keep the lighting soft and the calming music playing to make the experience as enjoyable as possible.  She was willing to do anything that we needed and made pointed suggestions about aspects of the birthing process we either didn't know about or weren't thinking clearly about in the moment.

We were both very grateful to have Grace with us in the labor and delivery room!
