Testimonial for Joanne Dahill

Joanne assisted me in the 2 very different birth experiences of both of my sons.  Both times she was instgrumental in helping me acheive my goal of an epidural-free labor/delivery with as few interventions as possible - I don't think I could've done that without Joanne.

At our initial meeting, Joanne got a sense of my previous birth experience, what I was looking for with my current pregnancy and delivery, and she gave me some helpful websites and book recommendations.  Joanne was available to answer any and all of my questions throughout my pregnancy, and when I ran into obstacles, she helped work through them with me.

My first son's birth was fairly quick.  I was about 4 cm dilated when I arrived at the hospital, and my son was born 2.5 hours later (I swear Joanne's massage relaxed me so much that my body just let go!).  What I remember most about that experience was Joanne's calm presence when everything started to happen quickly. She gave me confidence that my body knew exactly what it was supposed to do.

My second son's birth experience was quite different.  After my water broke and I didn't start contracting on my own, I had to be induced.  Joanne  stuck with me throughout the day, night, and into the next morning, when baby boy finally came.  When my IV failed and I thought getting another IV would send me over the edge, Joanne convinced the nurse to ask the doctor to let me labor without the pitocin and see if my body would take over (it did).

I was so grateful to have Joanne by my side as an advocate, a calm presence, and someone to turn to for advice throughout my pregnancies and deliveries. She is absolutely wonderful and truly passionate about what she does!
