Testimonial for Hayley Weichler, CD-L, CBE

Hayley was recommended to me in a group of women who I trust for advice on all things "baby". I began attending this group, in person, when my first child was 7 weeks old. Five years later, I still ask and answer questions in an online version of the group. When I was pregnant with my third child, I knew I wanted a different birthing experience, and I knew I would need some guidance. I was told by a friend that a Doula is to childbirth as a Sherpa is to climbing Mt Everest. Of course, I trusted the mom group for a doula recommendation. About 25 women commented on my question. 24 of them recommended Hayley. She answered my email quickly. She was beyond responsive to questions. She also helped me realize that, in order to get passed my fears, I needed to picture my entire birth story in a positive way. That was probably one of the best pieces of advice I was given during my journey. Hayley always let me make my own decisions but always offered guidance. She was never pushy and always made me feel like I was doing the right thing for myself and my baby. She was always prepared and never late. On my birthing day, my baby was born only minutes after we arrived at the hospital. However, those minutes were very intense, and I couldn't have asked for a better advocate. My husband ran for a nurse while Hayley squeezed my hips. Another nurse was loudly adamant that I get in the bed and on my back. Hayley kindly informed her that I wasn't planning to do that. Because my birth was so fast, Hayley spent the day with us making sure we had everything we needed. She has even gone above and beyond and done some post partum yoga with me. She has never made me feel rushed. Every time she's been to our home, whether for belly binding or yoga, she's always been positive about me needing to nurse the baby or tend to my other children. She is always professional. I definitely could not have asked for a better doula experience. She is my number one recommendation.
