Testimonial for Shawn Clancy

Shawn was an absolutely essential part of our birth experience and we cannot imagine having gone through it without her. We enthusiastically recommend Shawn to anyone giving birth.

We first met Shawn via video chat, and instantly felt at ease. She was there for us throughout the entire process. For several months leading up to the birth, she answered numerous questions we had about what to expect. We texted with her and had video chats and got comfortable with the birth and postpartum process. She came to our house to answer intricate questions about setting up our home. It was extraordinarily helpful for us to know someone would be there during and after the birth and her presence contributed to a calm and uneventful pregnancy.

During labor, Shawn was by our side at home and in the hospital for almost 36 hours. She has an incredibly calming presence that helped keep us sane during the chaos of birth. Whenever medical interventions were necessary, she helped us understand what was happening. Her knowledge and experience were apparent at every stage and made a massive difference in our wellbeing. We felt truly fortunate to have an expert guide and advocate for every situation.

Postpartum, Shawn came to our house almost every day to help. She answered all manner of questions about caring for our baby and taught us whatever we needed. She was especially supportive with establishing good breastfeeding practices. It was so helpful to be able to just hand our baby to Shawn and take a nap when we were exhausted. And when stresses were high she was always a calming force, responding with true compassion and patience when we were running on empty.

Shawn is an expert doula and an incredible person. We are extremely lucky to have had her in our lives and hope others have the same opportunity we did.
