Testimonial for Nicole Sawyers Todd, CLD, CPPD, HCHD, CHCE, SM

Nicole was a wonderful addition to my birth team. I wanted to give birth without using an epidural, and I was induced, and a VBAC. Nicole supported me through all that. She not only lead me through position changes during active labor (despite my growing resistance to movement), but was willing to help communicate with nurses after shift changes, giving them my birth plan and posting it on the door so I felt heard during a vulnerable time. She helped communicate "the energy in the room" that I hoped to have so I could focus on my part. She was also very reliable and was there for me when I needed her.

I will probably seek Nicole out if I have another baby. Nicole is not judgemental, and supports your vision for your birth.

If I were to do one thing differently, I would probably have spared her the early labor/waiting for induction sooner. I asked her to come for the induction and she came right away, but she probably didn't need to be there after they got me set up. I asked her to get some rest while I did, eventually, and called her when things picked up, and she was there right away. I wish I cut her loose earlier, but she was too polite to suggest that.
