Testimonial for Elaine Allen

Elaine has now assisted with two of my labor experiences, both of which could not be more different. My first labor was very lengthy and assisted with an epidural & my second was a very speedy labor completely medication-free. When we met for our prenatal visits, Elaine helped coached me through some difficult feelings I was having towards fearing another lengthly labor. This really helped me to cope and re-focus during pregnancy. During labor and delivery, the level of confidence that both my husband and I have when she is in the room is unmatched! The minute she entered the room this second time around (I was already in active labor and "in the zone" so my eyes were closed), she just jumped right in where we were and I recognized her sweet hands immediately doing accupressure on my feet with her yummy essential oils and I instantly felt at ease! Other support persons in the room were amazing (husband, midwife, and nurse) but I personally felt like Elaine led the way- from bigger things like repositioning to help get baby out or make me more comfortable & also helping my baby latch for the first time immediately after birth, to some smaller things like giving me sips of pregnancy tea at just the right moment or hunting down peanut butter because that's all I wanted! Elaine ensured that everyone in the room stuck to my birth plan and that all my needs were met. In my eyes, she is absolutely a person you want during any part of your pregnancy, labor/delivery, and postpartum experiences as she makes everything more seamless and gives you confidence and security along the way.
