Testimonial for Megan Boone

Megan was refered by a close friend of mine. After interviewing several doula, Megan was the one who made me feel most at ease. Her happy-go-lucky attitude and her nuturing persona were traits I was looking for in a support person. In our first meeting to discuss our "birth vision", it quickly became clear that Megan is a professional in her field. She was very good at outlining all medical options availble to us, and clearly explained each process and its corresponding pros and cons. She always remained impartial, and was very facts driven in her approach. Our daughter decided to suprise us all by arriving before our next scheuled education session (6 weeks earlier than her due date). When my water offical broke I immediately informed Megan, who responded within minutes. My labour progressed very quickly, and I frantically asked if Megan was able to support me, weeks before she had planned to. Without hesitation, Megan made arrangements to be by my side. Throughout the whole time she was in communication with Alan, and helped him nagivate the trying times of being a partner to woman in a lot of pain! Megan made it in time for me to start pushing; her presence made me feel safe and we (yes, it was a team effort) delivered a healthy baby girl. Our daugher was wheeled away to NICU almost immediately after her birth. Dad followed baby and Megan stayed by my side. That hour she spent with me was worth everything. I couldn't be with my baby, and she remained by my side in support. She also helped me begin to extract colostrum, and really helped me kickstart my success with breastfeeding. Megan came to our home a few weeks after our daughter came home to check up on baby and mom. For anyone who is looking into teaming up with a doula, I highly recommend it. There are gaps in the healthcare system (like early labour and postpartum care) that a doula can provide invaluable support through. I highly recommend Megan!
