When I met Briana, right away I felt very comfortable with her and she was very reassuring. When I was laboring at home, she kept in constant contact with me via text or phone conversations. She asked a lot of questions and helped me really know what to look for in order for me to know when to go into the birth center. Once at the birth center, she was there to greet us and went right into helping me be comfortable. She knew I was having back labor (I had no idea at the time) and applied counter pressure to help with the pain. The entire time she was a reassuring face and helped keep me centered. I believe because of her help and calm demeanor, I was able to get the birth experience that I really wanted. My first birth was done without a doula and I feel that the outcome, even though not horrible, wasn't what I imagined and could have been better with a doula. Even after having the baby she didn't just contact me once and go our separate ways. She constantly checks in with me, gives me ideas of things to try. I believe she genuinely cares about her clients. I highly recommend Briana and would definitely use her again in a heartbeat if we decide to have another child.
