Testimonial for Ellen Hsu (Mandarin/English)

We felt extremely lucky to have Ellen with us for our first baby in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. My labor and delivery was a dream experience. With Ellen there, it felt calm and focused. 

When I was almost 37 weeks, Ellen started to share her expertise in preparing for labor. She guided us through making a detailed birth plan and explained every consequences of each decision. She shared resources on what exercieses need to take for smooth delivery. She taught us lessons on everything we need to know about contraction pain relief and hospital experience. 

My water broke 3 weeks earlier than my due date. It was in the midnight and I was admitted to the hospital right away. Ellen came over immediately around 3 am. She helped massaging to relieve my contraction pain. It was magic that after her massaging it felt much less painful!  Ellen was so sweet that she told my husband to take a sleep and save energy for later when she's gone. During my labor and delivery, I was weak and had to rely on Ellen to communicate with the nurse using Madarin, since I didn't have enough time to catch up and learn all the medical jargons. Ellen was very professional that she kept explaining what's going on and allow me to get fully informed on the procedure. 

When the contractions were getting stronger and when it came time to push, Ellen's calming presence and support had helped me maintain my focus. After 8 hours of labor and 30 minutes of pushing, our baby girl had arrived! Ellen stayed with us for a few more hours and had written a timeline of the day. The whole day was a blur and I'm so grateful she did this and is something we can keep and share with our daughter.

Ellen was our sounding board and we fully trusted her to guide us through the experience, which allowed us to enjoy the moment without worries.
