Testimonial for Midwest Doulas- Doulas, Placenta Encapsulation

I cannot stress enough how important Justine and her team were to our birth experience. From our first (virtual) meeting, my husband and I both felt a connection with Justine, and her obvious wealth of experience put us at ease. Her guidance helped us understand what was most important to us in planning for the delivery. Having her by my side during the delivery helped me through the hardest battle of my life, and allowed me to push through to the end when I wanted to give up time and time again. The moment she entered the delivery room I felt the aura of the room shift, and felt like I was going to be protected now, and that it would somehow all be okay. She worked seamlessly with my midwife and the nursing staff, offering suggestions, helping out in times when staff was short or others were growing fatigued in helping position me. And ultimately, Justine laid the foundation to allow my beautiful (but huge) baby boy to enter this world the way I had hoped. Even though so many things happened that were out of my control, and the complete opposite of how I had imagined my first birth experience to go, including some serious trauma to both myself and my son, she remained my beacon of hope through it all, and helped me see, once the dust had settled, the positive sides of the story, as well as made me finally realize my massive inner strength, grit and determination. I have always had a fearful but awestruck outlook on birth, but thanks to her, I now have no fear, and feel so deeply bonded to the process, and to all the other women who have gone through, and will go through, this experience. Women are so powerful, with strength that, for many of us, goes untouched until we bring another life into the world. After that, with the help of skilled professionals like Justine, we learn that we truly can do anything, and nothing is no longer powerful enough to hold us down.
