Testimonial for Sheila Toal

Sheila was our doula for the birth of our first son, born 3/6/20.  Sheila was supportive from the first moment we met her.  I was very anxious during the pregnancy and about the birth process and she never made me feel like any of my concerns were too silly.  Sheila validated all of my concerns and was able to listen and provide reassurances, when needed.  Additionally, she answered all of our questions and it was very reassuring to hear from her experiences to calm my fears.  She was always very responsive to texts and phone calls and took the time to meet with us once prior to the birth and then again for a longer home visit closer to our due date.  Our baby was also born 5 weeks early and that did not throw her.  She visited us at the hospital the night I went into labor (at that point we thought we were in for a long haul, so she went home to rest while my husband and I tried to do the same), however, when my labor began to progress quickly, she answered my husband’s call at 2am and immediately came to the hospital.  Her presence was always calm and reassuring and she was helpful throughout the remainder of my labor.  Sheila stayed for an hour or two post-delivery and even can back to visit the next day to check on us!  I also have had some feeding difficulties, and she has been able to provide guidance to me.  She frequently texts to check in since we’ve all come home to ask how we are doing!  I fully recommend Sheila!
