Testimonial for Vanessa Flanders

I went through my pregnancy and birth of my second son with Vanessa. My goal was a VBAC, and let me say, as a "woman of size," it felt like every doctor I saw was against me and my wishes. After being turned down to do a trial of labor late in the game, I was feeling defeated, ready to give up and schedule a cesarean. It was with Vanessa's unwavering support that I stayed strong and stuck with my plan, even though it meant changing providers again at 34 weeks. She gave me so many tools throughout my pregnancy to increase my comfort and give me peace of mind when things felt scary or confusing. She is compassionate, empathetic and skilled, with a personality that makes you laugh and puts you at ease. My first birth experience was horrible and I went into my second journey with very low expectations. Vanessa armed me with so much information that helped me to advocate for myself, and she consistently exceeded my expectations. It was a professional relationship but I made it through the other side of the experience with a dear friend.
