Testimonial for Cheryl Murfin, MA/IAEd, CD

Cheryl was recommended to me by a friend, and upon our first meeting, I knew she was our doula.  She is professional, caring, supportive, honest, and goes way above and beyond the call of duty to care for women and their partners before, during, and after their birth.  Cheryl met with us several times while I was pregnant and we talked extensively about our wishes for our birth experience.  She was very perceptive about our needs, and one time just took me on a nice walk around the block and talked to me as a friend would.  She took the time to get to know us long before I was in labor.  Words cannot express how much we needed her when it came time for my daughter's birth.  I had to be induced, and cheryl was with us every step of the way.  All 50 hours of my labor Cheryl hardly left my side.  I remember, at one point during the experience, grabbing her hand and telling her, "I don't know what i would do if you weren't here".  She gave support to my husband, helped mediate between my midwife's information and suggstions and our  birth plan, and she even took pictures, capturing the moment our daughter finally arrived.  One of her most important gifts was as a lactation consultant.  She helped me a lot with breastfeeding, and I am still nursing my daughter over a year later.  I am in awe of Cheryl's service to women and their families.  I would highly recommend her as a doula and lactation consultant, and postpartum doula.
