Testimonial for Elaine Allen

We were referred to Elaine by a friend of ours and we could not be more thankful that she was present at our birth. Even though my birth didn’t end up looking how I pictured, I definitely am leaving the experience so empowered and thankful because of the encouragement and support I received from Elaine and the way she made the environment feel while I was birthing. The core of what I wanted the experience to be like was there because of her even though my birth ended up unfolding differently than I had pictured.

In the two times we met prior to labor, she was diligent in educating us about the labor and postpartum experience. While I was laboring at home, she was responsive and was available to respond to any questions I had that arose and checked in regularly to see how I was progressing. When an induction became necessary she met us at the hospital and was a constant support from the beginning. My labor ended up being 24 hours and Elaine was with me for 17 of those hours. She went above and beyond creating a peaceful space with dimmed lights, candles, aromatherapy, meaningful encouragement to both me and my husband, and her presence was always so calm, reassuring, and filled with peace. 

When it became necessary, her backup came in at the perfect time and was also incredible. 

I could not have gotten through my first birth experience without Elaine and I would want her to be present at any future births I may have. She is an invaluable resource throughout the laboring process providing pain relief through counter pressure, being a guiding force with positions, helping navigate the many decisions that arise during birth and helping me to know my options. She also captured many beautiful moments that I will cherish forever throughout the birthing experience. Her postpartum support has also been incredible and such a blessing. I could not recommend Elaine enough to any pregnant mother.
