Testimonial for Betsy Pool, CD(CBI), Certified BRM Pro

Betsy and I knew each other since we were kids so I knew that she would be a great fit as my doula. She did alot of education explaining what a doula was and had many wonderful articles that helped me along the way especially at the end of my pregnancy. We live in Wichita which is 2 hours away from Betsy but she was open for the challenge and we were able to communicate well with video chat and ultimate I decided on inducing a week after my due date. We talked about it at length and she educated me on both sides of the decision and at the end other circumstances led me to decide. During labor, she was a calming presence that I needed and she had some great suggestions when I would need a new approach. I also had a labor and delivery nurse friend that was there and they worked well together. She also is for the more natural ways to birth and they worked amazingly together! Betsy is on her way to be a great doula and she reads people well, is a calming presence even when I was not expecting her to be! Natural labor makes one not calm and I thought I needed a coach forcing me into things but that is not the case. You have to have a calmness to get through the contractions.  She also helped post labor that night until late into the evening and even afterwards she has been a great help in the transition to nursing and sleep for my baby. She has a wealth of good information and I would definitely have her come down again when we plan for our next baby. As for now, I am one tired mama lol but it is all worth it! Thank you Betsy for asking me to do this!
