Testimonial for Shanan Garber CD(DONA)

When I first connected with Shanan Garber of Barefoot Doula, I was pregnant for the second time with my 3rd baby (1st pregnancy was twins and a c-section delivery) I was hoping to have a VBAC, and discussed this with Shanan and was thrilled to have her on board. 

 Unfortunately, as the pregnancy progressed I was told I needed to have a repeat c-section.  I then felt frustrated that I couldn't have the birth experience I wanted, but Shanan was nothing but kind and encouraging in our communications prior to the birth, and was such a big help the of day to help calm my nerves just by chatting before the c-section.  She was also a big help during the c-section, since I couldn't see what was going on she was willing to take some pictures, and also asked me if I wanted the nurses to wipe the baby down (which I said was fine, but I was glad she caught what they were about to do and verified with me that it was fine for a quick wipe.. I just didn't want baby to have her first bath until a day or two later).  

A few weeks after my baby was born she checked in to follow up and offer more encouragement and just check in emotionally, and she even brought a delicious meal for our family!  I can not say enough lovely things about Shanan.  If you need a doula- she's your girl!
