We are first time parents. When we began our search for a doula, we were unsure of the role they played in the birthing process. Our experience with Anna showed us that she does everything, and we now can't imagine how one could give birth without the support and encourgement she provided. She walked us through the emotional and psychological journey associated with giving birth, lent us books and videos, sent us information regarding every question we asked, and was there to discuss and listen throughout the pregnancy and post-partum period. There is more: we had a difficult and long labor, and she was there for every contraction, providing support, encouragement and love. She pushed me to try when necessary, let me rest when I needed it, and was always positive, thoughtful and strong. She stayed with me for every part of the labor and delivery, and was there to help with my recovery, breastfeeding, and postpartum feelings after we gave birth. If you are looking for calm, wise and positive support throughout the pregancy, birth, and postpartum, we cannot recommend Anna enough.
