Testimonial for Lyndsay Eckhart - Guam

I chose a doula for two reasons: 1. I wanted a natural birth 2. my husband and I were apart for much of my pregnancy leaving us little time to prepare for labor. Lyndsay was great. She was flexible in meeting with us whenever I was in town and gave us an additional prebirth meeting shortly before my due date to ensure we felt comfortable/to answer questions. During our prebirth meetings she showed us counterpressure techniques as well as different positions to ease pain during labor. She also offered to come to our house to help labor at home. I went into labor at 11:48pm by 5am Lyndsay was there to help us at home. When my water ruptured, she suggested we go to the hospital before transition occurred. Once we got to the hospital, Lyndsay created the serene setting I requested. Within a few hours the dreaded transition occurred and my water broke completely. I was put on continual fetal monitoring due to meconium in the amniotic fluid. This made laboring much more intense as I was unable to walk around or go into the shower to ease the pain. Throughout it all, Lyndsay and my husband were by my side providing comfort and guidance. I can’t say I remember everything from that day but I do remember Lyndsay working the entire time to ensure I felt as comfortable as possible. She provided massage, positions, and breathing techniques when I was getting to the point of exhaustion. I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl at 4:11pm. Lyndsay helped me get her latched and left us all to bond. Overall I am very happy with my birth experience with Lyndsay. She continued to follow up with me for weeks after, giving me resources when I was having trouble with breastfeeding. She even stopped by our house to provide a few materials. About 1.5 weeks after birth, we had a postnatal follow up where we discussed the labor, and how I felt about it/parenthood. Lyndsay went above and beyond on so many occasions. She truly cares about her clients and I am very happy we found her!
