Testimonial for Annamarie Rodney

CFD is absolutely wonderful! Our family welcomed our last baby Feb 12th, 2018. I was seeing The Midwives in the same building. I did my homework and interviewed about 5 Doulas and ended up choosing Kelli. My biggest concern was finding a connection that fit for me and my family. Kelli really took the time our initial meeting to get to know me and my family. I had so many questions, but Kelli was so helpful and always was just a text away. When it was labor day, it was about 2am my contractions started, by 4am, me, hubby and our 18 month old were headed to West Suburban Hospital. I sent a text to Kelli. Luckily, she was just a little closer than where she usually is. By 630a I was in the ABC Room and about 15 minutes later Kelli arrived. She was so helpful in helping me work through my contractions and keeping me calm. My husband and daughter were not allowed to meet me upstairs. We were not aware of this when we toured the hospital, and mentioned several times we wanted our children to stay with us. We were told something completely different and I was 39 weeks when they posted the notice.About 835a I was ready to push. My husband ended up missing the birth of our daughter but we were so happy she was born happy and healthy. We really couldn't have done it without Kelli. I was alone and separated from our family, but Kelli is so great and really was my rock through this amazing experience of natural birth.I'm so grateful for the Chicago Family Doulas  Anna is such a wonderful and kind hearted person. She worked a plan out with our family that made it stress free and a easy for us to choose the Doula we wanted without financially stressing. Now that we've been back home Kelli helped me out with a post partum visitt. Saying goodbye to my wonderful Doula was heartbreaking, but Kelli is absolutely wonderful and it will be the story for years I will be telling and raving how I was able to have a natural birth
