Testimonial for Cheryl Murfin, MA/IAEd, CD

Four years ago when I was going through my first pregnancy and very new to the idea of doula's I did an online search. I came across Cheryl's information and just had to meet her. She sounded so knowledgable and friendly, and those were two things I needed very much. My boyfriend and I had just moved out to Seattle from New York when we became pregnant. Both fresh out of college and a little nervous about the new person we were about to bring into this world. We set up a meeting with Cheryl and immediately felt so much more at ease with the process that is child birth. We were already taking classes and getting ready but until Cheryl came into our lives I was feeling quite afraid of actually giving birth. I was concearned that my plan and my wishes would not be respected. I wanted as much as possible to have a medication free birth. It just so happens I had to be induced. We ended up being able to go home and sleep in our own bed instead of being induced at 10:30pm because Cheryl stepped in and spoke up for me when my wishes weren't being tended to. The next morning back at the hospital as soon as I had an IV they were ready to give anything that would help speed up the process and take away any discomfort, but this isn't what I wanted and Cheryl was there to help advocate for me. She spoke to the nurses when I felt I wasn't being listened to. She helped my partner and I through my labor to make it as joyous and celebrated as possible. Having her in our corner really made me feel as though nothing could have gone better. Well here I am again, 9 months pregnant and proud to say that she is my doula again! I am so excited to go through the process of child birth with her by our sides. We are greatful to have found the right fit for us 4 years ago and to again be able to share in our experiences with her. If you're looking for a great doula that is knowledgable and has a great personality you might want to look no further.
