Testimonial for Courtney Eisenberg, CD(DONA), CLC

After taking a childbirth class in December 2015, my husband Dave and I decided we wanted to consider hiring a doula for the birth of our first child due in March 2016. I looked for doulas on doulamatch.net under the advice of our childbirth class instructor and found Courtney. We set up a face to face meeting and Dave & I both instantly felt comfortable with Courtney and chose her to be our doula. She is warm, open and easy to talk to. We had a prenatal meeting at our home where we went over birth preferences and I found this incredibly helpful and calming. Courtney was also there by phone or text whenever I needed to vent as the end of pregnancy dragged on. I first started experiencing contractions on a Saturday night and let Courtney know and she helped me with how to try and relax etc ... we ended up going in early Sunday morning but being sent home which meant she had to start out to the birth center and then head home, which I'm sure was no fun. We finally checked into the birth center around 2pm on Sunday and Courtney met us there. Throughout my long labor, she was supportive of both myself and my husband. My labor did not go as planned - we spent about 8 hours in the birth center dealing with intense back labor and very little dilation or progress before making the decision to transfer. Courtney was extremely helpful with talking through this decision. In the hospital, I made the decision to get an epidural and felt supported in that choice. Ultimately, our daughter ended up being born by c-section late Monday morning. It was extremely helpful to have Courtney there for Dave and myself to talk through the options and our decisions with.

In addition to her awesome support before, during and after labor - Courtney followed up postpartum and made an amazing photobook of my labor and delivery which I will always treasure. She was a great support and I would highly recommend her.
