Testimonial for Audrea Blayer, CD(DONA)

I was pregnant with #2 and because of the experiences I had delivering #1 I felt the need for a doula. I had an emergency c-section with #1 and a lot of PPD after feeling I had failed. I realize now that feeling was silly, but!. From the moment we started talking, Audrea put my mind at ease, she also methodically and very kindly helped to rebuild the confidence I had lost from my first pregnancy/delivery. She taught me pain coping techniques and helped to educate me for a natural delivery. She encouraged me to advocate for a VBAC which I desperately wanted. My LO was past due date and she kept me calm while I was stressing about being forced into another cesarean. When delivery day came 4 days after due date I wasn't sure what labor felt like and she walked me through it every step of the way. I was in labor at the hospital for a total of 5 hours little man came fast, quick, healthy and unmedicated! That soul healing experience gave me a euphoric sense of accomplishment and confidence and I could not have done it without the love and support of my partner and my doula. We loved working with Audrea so much that when we were surprised with our third little one she was the first person we called. She again helped me to have a safe, healthy and extremely manageable unmedicated labor and delivery. She encouraged me to do research on pain coping techniques with recommendations which really helped. She also worked Hands-On with my partner to apply counter pressure for pain relief, and touch to increase my feelings of calm. Audrea helped me get to a place where I was 150% confident to birth my babies and I was not afraid because of the strength and courage she help me find. I could not have had the blissfully beautiful experiences that I had without Audrea. It almost makes me want to keep having babies so that I can continue to work with her! I can never truly articulate how much she means to us but highly recommend her services!
