Testimonial for Shawn Clancy

Shawn is an incredible doula. I don't know what we would have done without her. She has a calming demeanor and I instantly felt like she was someone I could rely on. This turned out to be so true! She came to our labor at 1 am on a Thursday night. I had been in pre labor for hours and wasn't sure if she could come to the hospital right away. She stayed in touch with me and my husband and made me feel in control of the situation even when she wasn't there yet. Once I was in labor and she arrived to the hospital she helped me cope with my pain and was incredibly warm and comforting. There were several times during the labor where I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do and she kept me calm and walked me through my options. The best thing about her is that she allows you to make your own choices and doesn't overly influence - so no matter what you choose to do there's low pressure and she is just there to support you. This was empowering. My husband was anxious about labor and he also felt like he was far more calm than he anticipated because she was able to take some of the stress out of the situation and help both of us cope. We were so sad Shawn moved from Seattle because we would have loved to have kept in touch with her! She's an all around good person and the best doula we could have asked for. She even came to the house after and helped me with breast feeding which was a huge help and gave me the strength I needed to keep going and not give up when we were struggling with latching. Highly recommend Shawn for anyone looking for a doula that is authentic, calming and will let you do what is right for you and not let you feel guilty about your personal choices!
