Testimonial for Emma O'Brien

We cannot recommend Emma more highly! We worked with her for the birth of our second child, which was my first pregnancy, and truly wish that she had been there when my wife gave birth to our first child. Emma is responsible and responsive, highly prepared, extremely knowledgeable about birth, and completely supportive. As others have said, her presence is very calming. Leading up to labor, we stayed in touch with her by email and text, and she helped us think through our options when it appeared possible that I would need to be induced for going past my due date. Ultimately she helped us through a fairly long unmedicated labor, which I'm not sure how we would have navigated without her. Her familiarity with hospital practices helped us avoid unnecessary interventions, and she had a great intuition for the little things that would help keep us comfortable and relaxed throughout labor. It was very reassuring to have someone there who had seen so many different births and could help us keep perspective on our own experience. I felt complete trust in her judgement throughout the whole process. At first we were unsure about using a doula, but after working with Emma I can't imagine giving birth without her!
