Testimonial for Vanessa Flanders

Having Vanessa assist with my birth was one of the best decisions my husband and I made. This was our first child and neither of us knew much about what to expect (other than what I had read) and after learning more about the role of a Doula in laboring and childbirth, I knew it was something that was a good fit for us. Vanessa met with us ahead of time to review my birth plan and spent time with us teaching us about the car seat and how baby needs to be positioned and how it needs to be installed properly in the vehicle (she has a car seat safety certification as well!). This was a huge help! During my labor, she was the calmness I needed as I worked through the pain. My "open minded" birth plan ended up being an unmedicated one and Vanessa helped me every step of the way with suggestions on when to change positions, words of encouragement and just being THERE. She was a great help for my husband also and helped him with ways to support me. She also took photos during my labor and was able to capture the first images of our baby girl and my husband and I right after Charlotte was born. I have been singing her praises to everyone since our birth and will most definitely be working with Vanessa again if and when we decide to have a second baby in the future. Thank you Vanessa for being such an amazing part of one of the most significant days of our lives!
