Testimonial for Ellen Jordano

I initially connected with Ellen Jordano through the Health Foundations Birth Center's partnership with the Doula Internship Program. Her certification as a Lactation Counselor and training in Spinning Babies made her stand out among the others in the program. Although we could not do our initial "get to know you" meeting in person due to Covid-19, I felt an immediate connection with her during our FaceTime call and could easily see how passionate she was about providing birth support. Ellen touched base with me every couple of weeks to see how I was doing and to encourage me to keep up with the Spinning Babies daily exercises I was doing to keep Baby in proper alignment. We agreed to have a socially distanced meeting at 36 weeks to talk about my birth plan and to come up with a plan when I was in labor. Ellen was a fantastic resource for me during my pregnancy and readily made herself available if I had any questions or concerns. 

When my water broke  a couple of days before my due date, I let Ellen know what was happening and she was a calming and encouraging presence behind the scenes for me during my early labor. During active labor, we met up at Health Foundations Birth Center and she kicked right into high gear to help me cope with the contractions. She was encouraging through each one, reminding me to breathe and stay calm. She described herself as a "comfort queen" and she is truly that. Ellen had essential oils, a back massage tool and many suggestions for different labor/birthing positions to keep me comfortable. She also worked as a team with my husband to provide labor and birth support which was empowering to him as well. Reflecting back on my birth it was a wonderfully positive experience and the Doula support I received from Ellen was one of the reasons why! I would highly recommend her serivices to anyone looking for a Doula.
