Testimonial for Amber Matteson

Amber was amazing to work with.  We were a little late in hiring a doula for our birth but we're grateful she was available! We ended up delivering baby 4 weeks early (went into labor 3 days after hiring Amber ). She made herself immediately available and offered to come to the hospital as soon as we were ready for her. Because my water broke early we were faced with some unexpected decisions around induction and Amber walked is through different options to help us make the best choice.  Once active labor arrived she joined us for our delivery.  Unfortunately for me I tested positive for covid at the delivery so she had to leave the room, but continued to provide support over text and calls and kept checking in following the delivery.  During our post partumn visit she helped us process the birth, walked through baby wearing options, helped us sort out swaddles, and gave us great advice about anything we had questions on. Even now we still check in with some qs that come up. 

The main reasons we chose Amber for our birth were her experience with births and babies, her non judgmental approach to supporting the birthing persons wishes, and the feeling of comfort we had when meeting with her on zoom  -we knew she would help me feel calm during the process...which was key for a first time mom with anxiety!
