Testimonial for Priscilla Brickey & Jennifer Anderson LM, CPM, LMT, CBS, CD(DONA)

If you're looking for a doula look no further!  Priscilla was great to work with and I couldn't have had a natural birth without her help. I have an incompetent cervix and was put on bed rest at 22 weeks.  Once I got to 34 weeks I decided to search for a doula and my doctor recommended the practice Priscilla was at.  Priscilla is a great communicator and answered all of my questions about bed rest and what to expect with a short cervix.  She was extremely positive.  I received a bed rest massage, induction massage, post partum massage, lactation consultation, and infant massage class.  All great experiences!

I received the induction massage at 40 weeks and had an induction scheduled by my doctor for four days later on a Thursday.  Thankfully,3 days after Priscilla's massage I went into labor naturally.  Priscilla called to check up on me and texted me as my contractions got closer. When I got to the Memorial Herman- Memorial City hospital, Priscilla arrived at the same time as my husband and me.  I showed up around midnight and delivered at 4AM.  Initially, I did agree to the epidural, however the anesthesiologist was not able to show up until I was close to 8cm dilated.  At that time, I had been going through every contraction on the birthing ball with Priscilla and she said I was just a few contractions away.  With her support and coaching I decided to forego the epidural. It ended up being a great decision, in my opinion, because after a few contractions like she said the doctor had me start pushing.

Having Priscilla made my birth experience extremely positive and calm. I ended up having the on call doctor since  I delivered at 4AM, and it was such a relief to have her there when I did not know the doctors or nurses. The nurses I had were great, but even they told me that Priscilla was amazing and made their job so much easier.

I definitely recommend Priscilla!
