Testimonial for Sheila Toal

My husband and I hired Sheila as a birth and postpartum doula, and we highly recommend her for both. When we first began our search, we weren’t exactly sure what we wanted in a doula. After researching local doulas on the internet and conducting interviews, we weren’t sure a doula would be worth the expense. Then we met Sheila. From the minute Sheila walked through our door for her interview I felt comfortable with her. Even before we hired her, Sheila began to teach us techniques we could use during labor. She has the perfect combination of confidence and calm. We felt like we could trust her, but we did not worry she would try to push any kind of personal agenda. During a 36-hour labor, Sheila’s guidance allowed us to share the experience without the stress of not knowing what to do next. Sheila quietly offered us different options for positions and comfort techniques so that we could find what worked best. She offered support when we needed extra hands, and she offered my husband the tools he needed to be a comforting and helpful partner. After giving birth, having someone I could trust with my home and my newborn baby was priceless. Sheila helped my husband and I get much needed rest, she helped us learn about our daughter, and she helped us keep our house livable. If we ever have another child, I want Sheila there with us.
