Testimonial for Amber Matteson

I'm not great with words, but I really want to share with everyone just how great it was to work with Amber as my doula. So, bear with my awkward formatting!


Amber was my doula with my 5th birth. It was my first time hiring/having a doula.
I have several chronic health conditions and a history of traumatic births. In this pregnancy I was also suffering from HG again. Right away after connecting with Amber, I knew that she was going to be supportive and a good fit for my specific set of circumstances... and she exceeding my expectations.


Amber was there with emotional encouragement, knowledge, and tips/tricks from the beginning when I was suffering horribly with nausea and vomiting to the end when baby decided to arrive later than I anticipated.
During my labor, she offered me physical comfort measures like counter pressure, so that my partner could be focusing solely on emotional support. The combination of the two, allowed me to be in the moment and to overcome anxiety/panic stemming from previous trauma.


Circumstances played out just the way that I had hoped for my best-case birth scenario. I had an unmedicated, complication free home birth. However, I know that had things gone a different direction that I would have been in great hands with my birth team, including Amber.


Amber as a doula makes you feel like you have a perfect combination of close friend mixed with a professional birth worker and advocate at your side.


My only regret is that I didn't work with her for my previous 4 births!
