Testimonial for Briana Smith

I met Briana at a Meet the Doulas night, held by my birth center. She was a wealth of knowledge, was warm and kind, and had a great sense of humor! She made it very easy to decide that when it came time to labor, she would be a calming and peaceful presence. Prior to labor she came to our home and meet our sons, and really got to know us as a family. She helped me with my birth plan, educated me on different essential oils to use during labor, and was very supportive in so many areas.

During labor Briana was amazing! My husband was away for work and we didn’t know if he was going to make it back in time. She stayed positive and helped me stay focused. From giving advice on different positions, running the diffuser with just the right essential oils, and using counter pressure when my back was hurting from contractions she was a huge support! After my husband arrived, she continued to help me stay focused and calm. 

After labor she she continued to check on me and my family. She also encapsulated my placenta! Briana made a beautiful print,the capsules, and 2 tinctures, all was done in a beautiful way. Her experience and knowledge of the placenta is fascinating, and having her share all of that with me was so beneficial to understanding more about my body and the amazing things it does. 

Did I mention she’s a rockstar? After spending over 12 hours with me in labor, she taught a birth class, and took care of multiples that same night!! She’s truly an amazing gift to our family!
