Testimonial for Amber Matteson

A lot of people asked if I was scared to give birth to my first child and my answer was always, no, because I knew I had Amber helping me every step of the way. From the second I met Amber on a zoom call I knew she was going to be the perfect person to support us. Right away I could tell she was warm, supportive and very knowledgeable about pregnancy, birth and newborn care.


I ended up having to be induced and Amber let me know no matter what time we needed her to call when I was ready. When it was time, she arrived at the hospital quickly and helped me relax. Giving birth is hard and painful no matter how you do it. Having Amber there helped us to achieve our goal of an unmedicated birth despite the induction. I asked her many times when was it going to be too late to have an epidural. She told me not to worry about that and to just focus on one contraction at a time. This was KEY to me achieving the unmedicated birth I was looking for. In addition to supporting me, Amber also supported my husband. Although partners aren't giving birth, being the support person has its own set of challenges. She didn't miss a beat with me and even helped him.


In addition to the pregnancy and birth support Amber came to our house twice for post-partum visits. This was AMAZING!! She showed us how to give our new baby a bath, helped with breastfeeding positions, showed us how to do tummy time without the baby screaming and so much more. The best part though was just seeing Amber, getting to talk to her and having her tell us about the birth. Although I was there I remembered very little detail so having a firsthand account and pictures was amazing. I am so very grateful for Amber. She feels like a member of our family and I know if we ever have more kids she will be the second person to know about the pregnancy because I need her there to help support us again.
