Testimonial for Sherilee Peters

I hired Sherilee to be our birth doula for the birth of our second child. I didn't have a doula with #1, and I wasn't totally sold on the idea UNTIL I took her Bradley Method classes. I totally recommend her classes for anyone who has not gone through the Bradley course... even if it's your second kid, it's worth it! Anyways, her education prior to labor was instrumental in setting up a birth plan that I felt comfortable with and confident about. Then, once I went into labor, she was such a calming presence throughout the birth. My husband and I both felt supported by her presence, and it was comforting to know we had her there on our side to make sure we had the experience we were hoping for. She was instrumental in communicating with the medical staff so we could just focus on labor. She even went to bat for me when the nurses told me there weren't any recovery rooms so I'd have to stay the night in the birthing room. She worked her magic and somehow got me into a more comfortable bed! Those birthing beds are not ones you want to sleep in ;)

The thing I'm most appreciative regarding having Sherilee at the birth was that while overall the birth was great, not everything went as planned. The doctor did not debrief me on the complication, and I was left with this hazy memory that something had gone wrong even though everything had turned out all right. Sherilee talked me through what had happened and helped me process the entire experience. Without that closure I think I would have always had lingering questions and mixed emotions about the birth. Now I'm pregnant with our 3rd and Sherilee was one of the first to know, as I can't imagine going through a birth without her. She's already provided me with great guidance regarding things I can do now to prepare for labor, and I'm just so glad to know she'll be by our side.
