Testimonial for Evana Cooper, BA, CD AMANI

My wife and I recently had the pleasure of hiring Evana as our doula for the birth of our son Westley. I will admit, though I had heard my sister mention the term doula during the birth of her children, I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect. I might even go as far as to say I was doubtful if a doula was needed for our birth. Being the “completely understanding man of her dreams” I agreed to meet this “Doula” if she felt it was necessary. Upon meeting Evana it became apparent that she was a complete professional. She was a comforting mix of both knowledgeable and personable that made our 3hr meeting seem more like a visit from an old friend than an obligation. She had several tips and suggestions we hadn’t ever considered. After our first meeting, my wife and I agreed that Evana’s “no-nonsense” approach to achieving your best birthing experience, might be exactly what we would want against pushy hospital staff. If that’s what it came to. A week prior to our due date my wife started having contractions. At 11:30 pm we were admitted into the hospital and found out we were already 8cm dilated. I called Evana and she said she was on her way to our hospital despite only just getting home moments before. When Evana arrived it was nice to have someone in the room we felt was on our side. I could tell by the way she interacted with the hospital staff that she approved of the way they were proceeding. This was a big relief to me, this being our first child and being out of my comfort zone. She gave me some easy tasks to keep me occupied and focused and suggested ways I could help my wife feel better. With Evana’s help, our son was born at 2:39 am. The delivery was described by nurses as both quick and easy. I have no doubt that Evana played a major role in that! I plan on calling her again in 2years when we have our second child. Thanks again Evana, it couldn’t have gone better. He’s perfect!
