Testimonial for Priscilla Brickey & Jennifer Anderson LM, CPM, LMT, CBS, CD(DONA)

A clotting disorder and cholestasis got in the way of the natural drug free labor I wanted. But with Kristina's help I was still able to have an epidural free birth, something I am sure would not have happened without her.

Words cannot even express how much Priscilla and Kristina helped me. I was in the hospital for 7 days for my induction, the whole time I was in contact with these wonderful women. Kristina even visited me after helping another mother while we were still inducing but hadn't started labor yet.  When we finally broke my water,  I texted "this feels real this time" and  Kristina was there before I knew it. I didn't want a lot of cervix checks and she helped me judge when I should ask for one, and because we did one we realized my baby was sunny side up, I was then helped into positions that helped me flip my baby so that he finally engaged and I started dilating naturally, which days of cervidil  and pitocin had not been able to make happen (though I was still on pitocin while this was happening) I fully believe without Kristina helping me my baby never would have engaged and I would have been stuck with an "emergency  (after 24 hours) c-section"

On another note the amount they empowered my husband to help me was staggering. Neither one of us was prepared for what labor would be going into this process, but Kristina enabled him to help me the way I needed it and was very beneficial during birth and helped the two of us bond during the process.

Finally the postpartum massage was so amazing it relaxed muscles I didn't realize were still tight, and being able to text and ask them if it was safe to take a postpartum bath which was the only thing I wanted without having to call my doctor as well as my other random questions was just such a blessing.

I tell everyone I know they need to book a doula (specifically these two) if they want a natural birth. I could not have done it without them.
