Testimonial for Shelia Kandeler, CD(DONA)

I don't think I could have asked for a better (natural) labor/birthing experience, and that's largely due to Shelia's support throughout the entire process, prenatal to postpartum.

My husband and I had not even considered hiring a doula until just weeks before our baby was due. Honestly, it never dawned on me before then to ask the husband if he would be able to provide the support I needed in the delivery room, and whether or not he thought he needed support himself. When we both realized that we were unsure, particularly since we'd never been through the experience before, we started researching doulas.

My husband and I interviewed several doulas with a wide range of experience, and felt the most comfortable with Shelia - she was genuine, listened and prepared.... and the list goes on. Ultimately, she provided the physical, emotional and verbal support my husband and I both needed before, during and after labor. 

In the end, my husband and I agree that, without question, we want Shelia with us when we have our next baby. I think that's the best thing I can say about what we think of this amazing doula!
