Testimonial for Ellen Hsu (Mandarin/English)

Ellen was referred to me through a friend. I was so lucky to have Ellen as my doula prior and during my labor. I did not have a doula for my first baby and it ended up with C section after 30+ hours pain and 4 hours push. It was a horrible experience so I decided to hire a doula for my second baby since I wanted to try VBAC. It was the wisest decision I have ever made. I don't think I would achieve this goal without Ellen's help. She was both professional and extremely patient and caring.  She taught me lots of postures for practice after week 34 and skills for my husband to practice to relieve my pain. Because of my tight pelvic bone, I pushed 3+ hours for my second labor without epidural. OB said natural birth might not be possible after one hour's  push. I wanted to give up. However, Ellen and my labor nurse tried various strategies to help the baby move. I still remember our small talk when Ellen comfort me and bring me hope in the darkest moment. Her rich experience in helping moms during labor brought me a complete different and way better labor experience, compared to my first labor. She knows how to make me feel better and feel strong through message, words, hugs, etc. I don't know how I can survive through a VBAC without Epidural if Ellen was not there. Cannot say enough thanks to Ellen.
