Anna was amazing, and I would recommend her to anyone.
I called her the day I was due to deliver, having decided at the last minute that I wanted a Doula. She set up a meeting right away, and was calm, direct, helpful, and made me feel two things at once: that I was totally in control, and that I was in great hands with someone with both compassion, wisdom, and openness.
She came with me to the hospital before the birth to meet the practice, and was there throughout the birth when I needed her. She helped me switch hospitals last minute, and then ask the right questions when I was there.
I had wanted a natural birth, but after being two weeks late, I decided to induce; when the induction didn't work after another two days, I decided to have a C section. Anna was there for the hard decisions, really helped me think them through, and made me feel good afterwards, instead of disappointed that the natural birth I had hoped for didn't work.
When I asked her about things she wasn't sure, she immediately followed up with resources and ideas.
I really can't say enough good things. You will be lucky to have her!
