Testimonial for Carina Bishop

Carina was extremely supportive during the labor of my second child. My first labor was very, very long, so I went into my second labor hoping to go natural but not wanting to beat myself up if I was unable to do it. Carina supported this decision. We met several times before I went into labor and she explained that even if I ended up getting an epidural, the longer I could go without one, the faster my labor would be. I really hoped to not need medication as my due date drew closer....and then passed. On day 9 after my due date, my doctor induced me. Carina was extremely encouraging as my labor intensified. She kept reminding me to just get through the current contraction and to take each one, one at a time. When I asked for an epidural several hours into it, she was very encouraging for me to hold on a bit longer. I did, but ultimately decided I really needed help with my pain management. Once I made that call, Carina was totally supportive of my decision and did not make me feel like a failure in the least. Looking back on the labor and birth, I honestly would not have changed a thing about my birthing experience.
