Testimonial for Ethel Tally MS, HCDC, RYT, RPYT, BRM Pro+

Ethel was a godsend as both our birth and postpartum doula. From our first intro meeting, she was a warm and calming presence, reassuring with no judgment and providing incredibly helpful guidance to ease my worries around labor. Ethel really made the three of us - me, my husband, and her - feel like a strong team working together to make sure our birth experience was as close to what we wanted it to be as possible. The birth rehearsal at home was invaluable in helping us prepare mentally and physically for what was to come, from the breathing techniques to the massage tips to the actual practice of what the final active pushing stage would probably be like. We had a very lengthy labor (40+ hours!), and Ethel was with us every step of the way, translating medical speak for us in a way that was easy to understand so we could make informed decisions, asking respectful questions of the hospital staff, and always making sure we felt comfortable and supported in how the labor was progressing. She was a true advocate and cheerleader, and played a special bonus role as photographer, taking priceless, once-in-a-lifetime photos right when our daughter was born, capturing our first magical moments as a family. Ethel then came to support us for a few nights once we were home from the hospital, providing much needed help around the house, from folding laundry to sharing lactation tips to making sure I was eating and staying hydrated. She also was a wonderful sounding board / pseudo-therapist in checking on our mental and emotional states during those super intense first few days/nights, and she was terrific and caring with our daughter. We're forever grateful to Ethel for all her help and support during this special time in our lives, and she has our highest respect and recommendation.
