Testimonial for Ellen Hsu (Mandarin/English)

My experience with Ellen was beyond words, and I would recommend her for any moms that are considering a doula.

My due date was April 24th, 2020, which coincided with the peak of the pandemic. Therefore, all of my birthing classes were canceled and it was quite scary feeling unprepared going into the final month of the pregnancy. Ellen gave a lot of great information and materials for me to read up, and always made herself available. Though all my meetings with her ended up being virtual, she made them very engaging for my husband and I and answered every question I had.

I decided to have an induce labor as my baby was past his due date, and went into the hospital the evening of April 26th. Everything went as planned until early morning on the 27th, when my baby experienced heart rate de-acceleration twice during mild contractions and I was becoming emotionally unstable as I was afraid that something was going to happen to the baby. I called Ellen and she rushed to the hospital right away (4 in the morning). I was so thankful to have her (her massages and supprotive words) through painful contractions and uncertain time. In the end, I had to make the decision of having a cesarean delivery due to my baby unable to deal with contractions, but I was so glad to have Ellen by my side. Although she didn't have to, but she insisted on staying after the surgery (which was about 11p) just to make sure I was doing okay and helped with breastfeeding.

I'm now 7 weeks post partum, and Ellen still checks in with me. I couldn't be more thankful for everything Ellen have done!!!
