Testimonial for Shelia Kandeler, CD(DONA)

Shelia was absolutely key to me getting through 16 hours of back labor and ultimately having the unmedicated vaginal birth I wanted. She kept me active, applied magical counterpresure, helped me communicate with triage nurses, and helped me understand what was going on in the room around me. My pushing phase is a blur in my memory, but I clearly remember her repeating the mantra "your body is safe" over and over - she became my tether and my lifeline during that time. I wasn't planning on having photos of my birth, but Shelia took some for us, and I am so glad she did. Seeing my husband's joy and my son's first moments of life melts my heart. I know I would never have had the amazing birth experience that I had without her. Thank you!
