Cheryl was an essential member of my birth team . I don't know that I could have navigated my hospital birth without her resourcefulness and help. While doctors and nurses came and went, Cheryl was a consistent and positive presence. Throughout she provided the extra support that nurses weren't able to give me, She was also knowledgeable about my Indian culture and customs and even did some chanting with me that really soothed me when I started to get frightened. We talked about Ayurvedic foods and that it fuels not only your body but the mind body and soul. She just made me completely at ease. She was a great advocate for my birth plan. When unexpected detours to the birth plan were necessary, she was especially supportive and she validated my decisions and made me feel safe and held space for me to let go. She brought a wealth of insight to my birth experience and she was especially strong in guiding my husband and me to practice different positions and techniques when the contractions were most forceful." I am so grateful, and my husband it beyond grateful too! thank you Cheryl we will be sure to recommend you to everyone you are special in every way!
