Testimonial for Ellen Hsu (Mandarin/English)

Ellen made a world of difference during my labor and delivery, a process with many unknowns especially for a first time mom like myself; I had prepared myself by taking birthing classes, talking to family and friends, reading books and other material online, but these could not replace Ellen, an experienced, professional, empathetic doula.
I opted for an unmedicated birth. When contraction pain became intense, Ellen tried several techniques, at the right timing to greatly relieve my physical pain and emotional stress, making labor bearable. At my most unpredictable pushing moments, working seamlessly with the healthcare team, Ellen gave me clear instructions on breathing, which resulted in stablizing my baby's heart rate at a very critical time; her calm demeaner, encouraging words, clear and effective instructions guided me to focus and push effectively, which contributed to a very short pushing time. In addition, Ellen has also helped answer many questions during my pregnancy and postpartum. It's a blessing to have Ellen as our birth doula!
