Testimonial for Grace Lape CD(DONA)

Even though I planned on a medicated birth at a hospital I knew I still wanted to hire a doula to help guide me and my husband through labor prep and labor and delivery. As a first time mom I wanted the personal support that a doula offers.  I'm so thrilled I chose Grace as my doula, she is so calm and friendly and though she has other clients, she really makes you feel like you are her top priority.  My labor experience was exactly what I hoped for from start to finish and Grace was a huge part in making that happen.  She provided a wealth of resources and information on laboring techniques and showed my husband different ways to support me in labor.  I went into labor with a much more positive and confident mindset because of Grace and she helped me and my husband to remain focused and calm while I waited over an hour for my epidural.  She applied counter pressure and heat to my lower back and coached me on how to breathe through the contractions while I leaned on my husband.  She kept my husband calm as well and I know that he wouldn't have been able to get me through that intense hour on his own.  Once the epidural was placed Grace helped my labor continue to progress by positioning me with a peanut ball and she helped encourage me during pushing.  She also captured the moment my son was born with photos and videos on my phone, something my husband and I were both too overwhelmed and distracted to think to do.  Basically having Grace by your side during labor is like having a friend with you.  She is so friendly and caring and genuinely loves what she does.  She offers fantastic non-judgemental birthing support for the laboring person and their partner and makes it her priority to facilitate the birth experience that YOU want no matter what it is.  I was super nervous and scared about giving birth before meeting Grace but thanks to her I can honestly say that it was a stress-free experience.
