Testimonial for Audrea Blayer, CD(DONA)

When I had my first son in 2011, I was naive. I thought my husband and I would go to the hospital and we would do whatever they said and it would be fine. I certainly was not interested in having anyone else with us. Well, I had a terrible birthing experience - Pitocin, episiotomy, third-degree tear, and then problems with my bowels for a year. I was scared to have more children and didn’t think I would.

We used Audrea for our second and third babies! We had a son in July 2015 and a daughter in December 2016. I am so thankful that we found Audrea because she was such a pillar of strength for us. She helped me feel more knowledgeable and confident after having a scary first delivery. Having Audrea with us gave my husband a chance to do something as simple as grabbing a sandwich without leaving me alone. Think of her as a coach - labor can be long or short, but with her to give you a plan, it can go quickly. There were many times that Audrea and my husband helped with pressure points simultaneously.

Our second son was 2 full pounds larger than our first and I had no problems. The doctor/midwife team opted for a small side episiotomy to ease the tension on my scar. I also opted to have a drug-free, natural birth. I feel that my experience on Pitocin was by far worse than a natural experience. We were so pleased with Holy Spirit Hospital and Audrea, we decided to travel two hours to have our daughter there (we had moved away after baby #2).  Our “littles” are 17 months apart and we felt more confident traveling rather than using a new hospital.

Audrea is selfless, caring, funny, knowledgeable, and pretty much always up for texting a mommy when she is worried.  She truly cares about you as a mom, your partner, and your children.  I highly recommend Audrea as a doula and am grateful that I found her!
