Testimonial for Sherilee Peters

My husband and I had a wonderful experience working with Sherilee.  We (I) decided to hire a doula after learning about their supportive role in birth at a expectant mother meetup.  I had never given birth before and the idea of having a person by our side who would know what was going on and be with us the whole time was incredibly appealing.  I looked for someone who would be a calm and comforting presence during my labor, someone who was knowledgeable and confident, warm and strong.  Sherilee was all of these things and more.  We interviewed several doulas and when we met Sherilee we knew we'd found the right fit.  She was open and supportive of our desired approach to the birth experience.  Although we were working for a natural birth, I was well aware that unpredictability is an inherent part of having a baby.  As it turned out, 18 hours of unmedicated labor led to 10 hours of medicated labor which led to a C-Section.  My child had/has an enormous head.  Although that path was not our plan, the experience was not a negative one.  I felt strong and supported during labor, I knew that my husband had an ally and was also being watched out for...I didn't have to worry, I could just be in the moment.  And when I forgot to do that, I had a kind and experienced voice to remind me.  After our baby was born, we were able to look back and know that we made the best decision we could at every juncture.  We never felt scared or intimidated or unsure.  It was Sherilee's support that allowed that experience.  The pre- and post-birth visits were also invaluable. Feeling prepared, then having someone with whom to process everything and share another set of memories was really wonderful.  I highly recommend Sherilee!
