Testimonial for Stephanie Read, CD(DONA), Ayurvedic Doula, RPYT

With my second pregnancy I wanted to be more prepared - both physically and mentally. I was looking for someone to be my ally in the room, that would help and support me through all the phases of the latest phase of pregnancy to childbirth - a role a spouse cannot always play for multiple reasons. In my opinion only a woman can really help you leverage your strenghts, will give you unconditional support and never judge you. I found it reassuring to have someone by my side that has seen and helped so many babies come to this world, so I could tap into the wide array of her experience and expertese. Stephanie was my ally, guide and friend in the weeks leading to delivery and all the way until my baby was born. She is a great yoga teacher and that helped me to prepare and build the trust and relationship I needed with her. She was 100% available whenever I had a question or request, and with me all along the way from my first contractions to my first cuddle with our baby. She supported every one of my choices while still offering her advise. She was my ambassador and champion in the hospital, where at my request we arrived as late as possible and with minimal intervention. All I remember from this labor and delivery is that I had a loving presence and guide by my side. I was up and running a few hours later and home within 24h, as everything went so smoothly and with no issues or complications. I believe birthing is a process where the more you let go and trust yourself and your body the easier it will be. And I was able to do that thanks to Stephanie.
