Testimonial for Michelle Gabriel-Caldwell

With Michelle as my doula, I was able to have the birth I always wanted.  Michelle is caring, experienced, and very knowledgeable about all things birth.  From the start, Michelle was there for me as a first-time mom and felt to me more like a trusted friend than a hired doula. She visited me in my home and chatted with me about what I expected for my upcoming birth, and she helped me to write the perfect birth plan.  During my labor, Michelle worked hard to make me feel comfortable and to help my labor to progress. She knew the perfect time to leave my home to travel to the birth center where I had my baby.  We were at the birth center for only 3 hours before my beautiful baby boy arrived!  After the birth, Michelle advised me on things I could do to safeguard myself against possible postpartum depression and helped me to do them.  In the weeks following the birth, Michelle was always available to answer my questions and visited me in my home multiple times.  She even came an additional time when she learned I did not have any family in the area to check on me in the first weeks.  Without Michelle, I’m not sure I would have been able to have my baby naturally.  Her calm demeanor, experience, and hands-on care were invaluable to me, and I am so thankful to have met her.  I will certainly be using Michelle again as my doula in the future!
