Testimonial for Amber Matteson

Over the last couple years, Amber has been our grounding source of comfort and an incredible support system during our conception and birthing journey. Amber took the time to understand our values and priorities as a family unit, and as first time parents she normalized all our concerns with humor, grace, and compassion. Leading up to the birth of our child, Amber offered constant text support and helped us understand so much of what was left unexplained by the typical OB medical experience. Amber presented incredibly thorough childbirth education in the weeks leading up to our laboring experience and helped us feel prepared to confidently navigate a hospital birth.  She also referred us to incredible local lactation consultants to help us prepare for our newborn.  When we learned we would have an induction, Amber helped us understand our new birthing options and process.  This context became extremely important because things move fast in the hospital, and there wasn't always time to fully understand what was being offered by staff. During our labor experience, Amber helped us advocate for our preferred interventions, brought much-needed laughter (which we had asked for), and encouraged us to be present with one another following the birth. She also was much loved by our nurses, OB, and hospital staff, blending with our medical team seamlessly. Despite what once seemed like unsurmountable challenges to become parents, Amber gave us the confidence and encouragement needed to carry on. Amber, we will never forget the impact you had on us in our most important moments.  10/10 would absolutely do again-- with you by our side.
