Testimonial for Linda Crownover-Inch

I was an older (37) when I found out that I was pregnant with my first baby.  I made my appointment with my local OB-GYN as the standard protocol.  Knowing little about pregnancy, birth, babies, and raising children, I bought the book "What to Expect".  Combining all of these factors, I became extremely anxious and scared.  Having no family or friends that I could lean on,   I began asking about doulas.  Linda's name came up and I gave her a call.  

Linda worked with me and calmed my nerves.   Not only did she teach me about having natural birthing, cesarian procedures, induction processes, and other birthing procedures she taught me about breastfeeding, baby wearing, massage during pregnancy, essential oils, and general mothering techniques. She empowered me and taught me how much strength I possessed. She taught me to question the status quo and advocate for the birth story that I wanted with my terms. 

As a result of our weekly sessions, I had the most wonderful almost 100% natural birthing experience.  Linda was there the entire time whispering in my ear that women had been birthing babies for thousands of years and that I could too. I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl with out medical intervention.  18 months later, Linda assisted as I "stomped out" my son and told the hospital to allow me to birth him the way my body needed.  

My birth stories are moments in my life that I return to when I am feeling weak and need assurance.  It is because of Linda that they are moments of power and beauty.
