Testimonial for Candice Tizzard Photographer & Doula

As first time parents, we weren't informed on anything about birth and trusted what we were told to do. Fast forward to last year, I was 9.5 weeks pregnant by the time Cliffs first birthday rolled around... and I miscarried that baby on his birthday, within 45 minutes of Cliffs own birth. I was inconsolable for weeks, and devastated for months. I wasn't sure that I was going to be able to emotionally handle giving our wonderful boy a sibling, especially considering that miscarriage was not my first.
I then found myself pregnant again in January of this year. My husband and I were determined to ensure this would be a completely different experience than our first born. Candice was always there for me when I needed her even early on. My two preterm labour scares? She was there. All of my questions, she was there. Most important, she supported my husband and I's desire for an HBAC (home birth after c-section).
With Candice's support, I was able to look at my husband and see his excitement, not the fear written all over his face at the birth of our first. Thanks to Candice, I found the strength to keep on going, even when I wasn't sure I was able. And thanks to Candice, I was able to do it at home, in my own bed, completely drug and intervention free. My birth took 4 hours and 7 minutes from the first contraction to the time my son, Stockton, was born. He was caught by his dad and immediately given to me. Every little thing that happened with my first born is now erased as being traumatic for me. I've been able to heal from Cliffs birth, and I was able to heal from my miscarriage just one year before. And the person I owe a big portion of that to is Candice. She started off a stranger, and now she's like family. She gave me so much of myself back that I had lost the past two years, and I am forever grateful.
Thank you so much for giving my family my power back, Candice. My family loves you and we will be forever grateful for what you gave us.
