Testimonial for Colleen Myatt CD/PCD(DOÑA), CLC, PES, ICCE

After researching childbirth and all that came with, I determined that I wanted to have a natural childbirth.  For me, this meant taking a hypnobirthing course and hiring Colleen as our doula.  Both decisions were pivotal and I credit both with enabling me to have the birth experience I wanted--even when wrenches were thrown into our "plan" along the way.  When our baby was still breech at 36 weeks, Colleen provided me with techniques to help flip her, but even more importantly, supported me once those techniques did not work and my husband and I turned to ECV to flip the baby. (It worked, thankfully).  Once I did go into labor at just over 40 weeks, Colleen played an even more crucial role in allowing me a natural, drug-free birth.  I dilated swiftly, but our tiny, opinionated, and stubborn daughter simply did not wish to descend (she was most likely facing posterior).  After three and a half hours of pushing accompanied with back labor, my resolve began to crumble and I started mentioning words like "epidural."  Colleen was the voice of encouragement I needed in that moment.  She reminded me how strong I was and how far I had come, and when I decided to employ vacuum extraction, she was completely supportive.  Colleen both rolled with the punches and allowed me to do so.  I cannot thank her enough for what she has done for us--during pregnancy, in the delivery room, and after Rose was born.  Needless to say, I will be calling on Colleen for any future pregnancies!
