Testimonial for Ellen Jordano

Bringing new life into the world, especially for the first time, is a magnficient and momentous undertaking. As our daughter's birthday was approaching, the fear of the uknown and hopeful anticipation was peaking. With Ellen as our primary birth-partner, our heart's were able to acheive a confident peace about the birthing process. Ellen was quick to listen to our needs, and provided thoughtful answers founded in a wealth of experience and knowledge. We value clear and compassionate communication, and Ellen well-exceeded our expectations before, during, and after birth.

When labor began, I felt excitement and joy in the time to come, as well as a sense of nervousness and concern as I knew the hard-work and waves of labor my wife was about to wade through in the coming hours. Ellen was timely in meeting us at the Health Foundations birthing center, and was quick to take lead as our advocate and partner when we did not know which step to take next to facilitate a meaningful, smooth, and timely birthing process. She was well-equipped to meet not only my wife's needs, but also mine, every step of the way. From postural suggestions to words of encouragement, and more significantly her enduring presence of peace and comfort, we made it through more than 24 hours of arduous labor.

Ellen and I worked as a team to meet my wife where she was, every step of the way; and with her assistance, my wife and I would both describe the laboring process as ultimately beautiful, spiritual, and permeated with profound meaning.

After birth, Ellen continued to provide us exemplary service with texts of encouragement, a simple phone call to answer any pressing questons, and even a home visit to help us process and better appreciate the entirety of the miracle we had witnessed with our daughters birth. 

With certainty, I can attest that Ellen will be our partner in birth as our family grows, as well as a good friend for a lifetime.
