Testimonial for Shannon Lee

When my husband and I found out we were expecting out first, we knew we wanted to work with a doula. When we sat down to talk with Shannon, we knew she was the right fit for us. She immediately understood both our concerns with labor and delivery and understood the type of experience we wanted to have. We knew we wanted to have the most natural birth possible, Shannon brought a sense of calm to our labor process and encouraged me to trust my body to do what it was made to do.

When I was hospitalized for complications a few weeks before delivering, Shannon was available to reassure me that everything would be alright. She continued to be available for us in the weeks and days leading up to our delivery date, and never made me feel like my questions or concerns weren't important. The day I went into labor, Shannon arrived as soon as we asked for her assistance. She stuck with us as labor progressed and helped me labor at home as long as possible. My husband and I relied on her immensely throughout the process. She kept track of my contractions so my husband was able to help me get through them. She offered suggestions on ways to ease the pain from the contractions and make me as comfortable as I could be. Once we were at the hospital, Shannon was an advocate for my husband and I to make sure our birth plan was followed. During our prolonged pushing, Shannon was right by my side with peppermint oil to help with my nausea and cold compresses to help keep me cool. Shannon also took beautiful photos of our delivery to help us remember the day.

After our daughter was born, Shannon offered instruction and support with breastfeeding while we were in the hospital as well as once we were discharged and I was struggling with breastfeeding. My husband and I look forward to working with Shannon again if we have another child in the future.
