Testimonial for Jill Magoffin CD(DONA)

PART 3 OF 4

We checked in and settled in to the labor and delivery room.  Jill set up the room with lights, filled the air with lavender scents and I started playing songs by Laraaji on our bluetooth speaker.  My wife was experiencing stronger and stronger contractions but was not dilating.  Jill stayed by her side, talked to her calmly, walked her through breathing techniques and massaged her.  She helped her get in to different positions to help speed up the labor naturally.  My wife continued to go through these contractions for another 12 hours at the hospital until she decided to get an epidural.  Jill never took a break or left our side once.  We were all in this together.

When it came time to push, the three of us found some energy reserved and tapped in to it.  This was the moment that we put everything we had learned to use.  As my wife pushed, Jill and I were at her side coaching her through it and being as motivational as we could possibly be.  It was very tough watching my wife go through what seemed to be excruciating pain, but having Jill's energy and presence there gave us strength. 

After 90 minutes of pushing, our daughter was born!  We were all incredibly emotional and tears of joy were streaming down our faces.  With our approval, Jill quickly grabbed her camera to start snapping photos and videos to document the joy of the first minutes of our daughters life.  This allowed my wife and I to be present and enjoy every second without worrying about capturing it on camera.
