Testimonial for Linda Crownover-Inch

Linda at Childbearing Year Resources was my Doula in 2009 for my son's hospital birth and for a childbirth options consult when I was pregnant again in 2011. I was looking for an experienced and wise woman to offer support for my goal of a low intervention birth. I am very satisfied with her service and support. Linda met with us at several prenatal meetings and offered information as we researched and made decisions about our prenatal care, birth, and post-partum. Linda came to the hospital when I asked and stayed with me, holding space, answering my questions and listening. When labor became intense for me I felt reassured by Linda's presence, massage and soothing touch, helping my husband with ideas to support me in labor, and encouraging words. I felt all the preparation and learning we did with Linda really helped me not be afraid and know what to expect from my body. My baby came prematurely and Linda went above and beyond after birth by offering me support over the phone and in-person when we were in the NICU. Linda introduced me to La Leche League peer breastfeeding group, ICAN, and other local parenting support groups and resources. I felt loved and supported throughout my Childbearing Year and I trust Linda. She empowered me to learn about and advocate for the respectful care and type of births I felt were best for my family. When I became pregnant again I hired Linda for a childbirth options consult and feel it was well worth the investiment as it helped my husband and I sort out what we wanted and offered referrals to providers. Linda really cares about her clients and about parents and babies in her community as evidenced by volunteering her time, knowledge, and experience to help families and her advocacy in support of people's rights in birth. She inspires me to serve parents in my community too. If I have another hospital birth and Linda is available, I would hire her again. Katie Hatch
