Testimonial for Emma O'Brien

My husband and I interviewed 4 doulas and we went with Emma. My husband was opposed to us using a doula until we met her. She struck a great balance between being personable and being direct. My husband and I felt completely supported by her in our vision of our labor and delivery. She advocated very directly with medical staff on the wishes of me and my husband, and the medical staff seemed in awe of our teamwork. She had essential oils at the ready while I was laboring and came to our home after the birth with additional support. During my labor she played my affirmations from the childbirth class that my husband and I took called Mama Natural. During delivery she reminded me of the affirmations and kept me focused when I wanted to give up. When medical staff tried to interrupt my hyno-breathing, Emma advocated for me to continue my practice. I would highly recommend her as a knowledgeable and supportive doula. My husband and I had the labor and delivery that we hoped for and Emma’s support and advocacy was an integral part of that. My husband feared that a doula would take his place and that he’d be cut out of experience. He met Emma and liked how knowledgeable she was. After the labor, he said he was so happy that we hired her because he felt like we were all team because she knew what our wishes were.
