Testimonial for Elaine Allen

I’ve been trying to post this for weeks, but have just found it impossible to find the right words. Elaine was our doula for our third baby last month, and she was truly the brightest star during an immensely dark night. I was going for a VBAC and endured an exhausting induction only to end with another traumatic story complete with scar attached. Having been through a traumatic delivery before, I remember how raw and vulnerable it made me feel. This time, the ONLY reason I am able to process it differently and look back feeling protected and empowered is because of Elaine. Not only do her skills set her apart from countless other doulas, but her compassion and kindness reach a depth which is immensely rare to find. I am absolutely certain that I will want her there for any more births I may have, regardless of the birth plan in place. I would recommend her a thousand times over, and not only for her ability to help you work toward the birth you desire, but for the way in which she will support you and stay by your side whatever the outcome. Whether you’re planning an unmedicated birth or an epidural, a VBAC or a repeat c section, a homebirth or a hospital birth.. I have no doubt Elaine can help you, and likely in ways you didn’t even realize you needed.
