Testimonial for Ellen Hsu (Mandarin/English)

Choosing Ellen as our doula was one of the best decisions we made during our pregnancy journey. From a male’s perspective, and especially as first-time parents, I didn’t initially appreciate just how helpful having a knowledgeable guide by our side would be, but looking back, Ellen was the key to having our birth experience go as planned. She is one of the most experienced doulas having attended hundreds of births. Ellen also genuinely loves what she does and really enjoys helping people.

Even before the birth, Ellen was crucial in preparing us for what to expect and how to handle the early contractions. We met with Ellen several times, and her hands-on sessions were what really built our confidence.

When the big day arrived, Ellen came to the hospital as soon as we needed her which was at 10 PM. She instantly took charge in comforting and helping with labor massages. It was amazing- my wife was immediately more relaxed and able to better process everything. As the contractions grew more painful, Ellen helped us decide when to start the epidural and continued to provide emotional and physical support (through massage and pressure points) which helped both of us. It wasn’t until almost 10 AM the next day that our baby was born vaginally after my wife pushed for more than 4 hours! To be honest, without Ellen, we probably would have had to go to c-section which would have been disappointing after all of that effort. After the baby was delivered and even after being up all night, Ellen stayed many more hours making sure everything was OK with Mom and Baby.

Ellen’s support didn’t stop after the birth. Ellen still checks in with us providing recommendations and answering questions. She continues to go way beyond all of our expectations. From the beginning we have felt like close friends rather than clients. We are so happy to know Ellen and have her in our lives. We can highly recommend Ellen without hesitation!
