As a midwife in the Treasure Valley, I love recommending Amber for a few reasons - she is so likeable and a great communicator. She takes care of all the little details in birth plans, to help ensure families get everything they could wish for. She knows her role during birth and keeps families hydrated, bladders emptied, snacks offered, and comfort measures coming in a wide variety of ways that soothe and comfort. I really respect that Amber encourages the family to keep their provider updated throughout the course of labor, and that she is so willing to partner with families during those early-labor/prodromal contractions, without any thought or hesitation of how long that stage may last. She is committed to being with you from start to finish. I've seen Amber intuitively encourage position changes to facilitate progress and I've never had a client who wasn't anything but thrilled they chose Amber as their doula. She has such a great energy and my clients often speak of her in their prenatal and postpartum visits, telling me how much they appreciate how she helps them prepare for birth, cope with birth, and recover from birth. Very glad she's a part of the doula community in this part of Idaho!
