Joanne was a wonderful doulah. I felt comfortable calling her at any time with questions or concerns and she was very responsive and helpful when I did. She helped me decide to go to the hospital even when the nurse was telling me not to, which turned out to be the right decision! She was kind and encouraging during birth, offering me different options for pain management and also was supportive and accepting when I was ready to consider other medical alternatives. Her knowledge of the birthing process was key as she encouraged me to push when I felt uncertain of what to do next and this also was the right things to do. Her prenatal massages were excellent in helping me manage back pain and she coached us on infant massage when my daughter was having her tongue tie repaired. So grateful to have had Joanne kind, supportive, and knowledgeable presence during our birthing experience!!
