Testimonial for Cheryl Murfin, MA/IAEd, CD

I learned about Cheryl from a friend of a friend who, at a birthday party, shared her birth story with me while I was 3 months pregnant. This friend gave birth maybe 7-9 years ago (can't remember how old her daughter is exactly) but she only had wonderful things to say about Cheryl. She's a person of color, as am I, and the fact that she had such a great experience stood out to me since women of color face a lot of challenges and discrimination in medical settings (etc.). Anyways, I decided to reach out to Cheryl and I'm so glad I did! With Cheryl as my Doula I felt confortable and safe at home during early labor. Cheryl guided me and my husband to help my body move to help the baby along (going up stairs, using the rebozo). I had a fairly fast labor as Cheryl was able to recognize when I/my body wanted to start pushing and she helped ensure we made it to the birth center in time for active labor. She was calm, reasuring, knowledgable. Finally, her visits to my home after giving birth were incredibly helpful. I felt very vulnerable the first few weeks after giving birth and it was so very helpful to have Cheryl to reach out to. I'm so grateful Cheryl does what she does and I'm so glad she was part of our birth experience. Thank you Cheryl! (she was so great she later supported my sister-in-law during her birth to my neice).
