Testimonial for Sheri Gorman

Quick summary- Sheri is attentive, nurturing, caring, supportive, knowledgeable, and experienced. If we were having another baby I would ask her to go through it with me again.

Detailed summary- I wasn’t sure what I would need or even what I was asking for, but with COVID and having my parents caring for our toddler, and now living further from the hospital I knew having more help on call would be better than not enough. I had heard people say it was great to have a doula but I kept thinking “do I really need that?” “Why is it so great?”

1.) support for me AND my partner. My husband is not always sure how to help or when to help- Sheri built a relationship with both of us prior to labor and delivery so she was able to help guide my husband how to help me with massage and counter pressure during labor. I had Sheri, my nurse, and my husband all helping me through - I felt incredibly supported- REALLY helped when contractions became stronger. My husband now asks why hospitals don’t offer doulas as a package deal at the hospital. He felt supported too.

2.) she’d help explain things, provide resources  prior to our sons birth and during labor delivery.

3.) when my son was breech she helped us with spinning baby positions and exercises to help turn the baby.

4.) she seemed to know when to lean in and help and when I needed space to digest information or was feeling overwhelmed by other things.

While we don’t plan to have another baby I would have Sheri by my side in a heart beat for another birth. You can never plan for exactly how your birth is going to go- nurses are great,  my practitioner was also great- but having the same person - who is also knowledgeable and experienced advocating for you by your side through the whole thing is huge. I am so glad we chose to have Sheri by our side and that she chose to join us for our birth story.
