Working with Anne has been a fabulous experience since my husband and I first met her at the initial interview. Anne immediately helped us feel comfortable with allowing her to be part of the intimate experience of the birth of our first child. She visited us in our home twice before the birth to go over procedures, goals and answer any questions new parents may have. While my due date approached, Anne was always on call to answer questions or just to check in to see how I was feeling. She even offered to cut a vacation short when she thought labor was shortly approaching! When I went into labor Anne helped me understand everything that was occurring. She also has a TENS unit on hand which was so helpful to manage labor naturally. When asked, Anne came to my house and assisted in laboring at home until we all decided it was the right time to go to the hospital. With her assistance, I got to the hospital alread at 8cm! While at the hospital Anne remained by my and my husband's side and then coached me through pushing. When our son was born Anne stayed for about another hour in the hospital helping with initial feeding and to answer any questions. Anne then continued to remain on call to field any questions or concerns. The first week home I think I texted her multiple times a day and she was also quick with a response and always very useful advice. I cannot thank Anne enough for helping me through my goal of delivering my son naturally! It is easy to see that she truly cares about her clients and goes above and beyond to assist in any way. I highly recommend Anne if you are in search of a supportive, compasionate and knowledgeable doula!
