Testimonial for Aurea Hawkes

Aurea was everything we needed and so much more in the birth of our sweet, healthy baby girl. As first time parents my partner and I decided on an out of hospital birth despite a lot of opinions from others. This was the best decision we ever made for us personally. The support Aurea provided both my partner and I was so invaluable. All of the training and education really prepared us for the big day…game time!  

We had never done this before so we really leaned on Aurea to answer every question…yes EVERY question that pops into the head of a slightly anxious mama-to-be! Her expertise went beyond the questions and beyond the preparation.

It was all the little things that pop into my mind from the smell of peppermint filling the room as I became nauseous, suggesting a new comfort position to get me through the next wave, or the steady flow of affirmations when things got really hard. I can still hear her saying “low and slow,” “you were made for this,” “you will meet your baby soon.” All things I needed to hear in those very specific moments.

I can go on about that very special morning meeting our baby girl but even now I say that it wouldn't have been the same without Aurea there. One last thing I’ll say is that I didn’t fully wrap my head around the time she would spend with us that night and morning. Labor is hard work and takes HOURS! Aurea was there for it all. 

Thank you for being the positive force of energy at every stage in prenatal, labor, delivery and postpartum.

10/10 all around!
