Testimonial for Audrea Blayer, CD(DONA)

We ended up choosing a doula later on in our pregnancy. And boy, were we glad we did! From the initial interview, both my husband and I felt very comfortable with her. We were looking for a doula that would act as a coach, guide, mother figure, patient advocate, etc. for us. She helped us get started on our birthing plan and the many questions we had.  She is very sweet, down to earth, responds quickly, etc. She's been through this many times and has 6 children of her own! So, she has the doula experience as well as the experience of being a mother herself. She checks in regularly and adapts to your schedule quickly. She doesn't view this as a job. You are a main priority to her, and she truly does care for you. In addition, although she works with many different kinds of families, it was really comforting knowing we shared similar values in our faith.  Also, my goal was to keep everything as natural as possible for it, and we managed to do that with the amazing help of Audrea (counter pressure, massages, soothing tones, balls, stress relievers, breathing techniques, you name it!). She helped guide & coach us through from start to finish. In the healthcare world that we have now, it tends not to be patient-centered care anymore, and doulas are an AMAZING and necessary addition to the birthing process.  Another reason why we liked her so much is that she really works in tandem with the healthcare staff. She is truly a patient advocate but will not get in the way of the healthcare professionals and what they need to do during delivery. (side note: this might help any skeptical husbands - my husband was one and didn't think it was necessary - after hiring Audrea as our doula for our 2nd birth, he said he was wrong and could not have imagined doing this process without her - he agreed to hiring her for our next pregnancies!)
