Testimonial for Sheila Toal

I cannot speak highly enough of Sheila.  From our first meeting, I knew she was the right doula for me.  At our prenatal meetings, she came with activities and questions to help me think about my labor and birth preferences and prepare for labor and birth.  She was very supportive of my preferences.  Throughout my pregnancy, I was able to reach out Sheila with questions and she always responded quickly and was able to provide recommendations for things like prenatal yoga and massage therapists when asked.  When my birth partner got COVID just a few days before I went into labor and my mom stepped in as my support person, Sheila helped fill my mom in on my labor/birth preferences and current childbirth practices that had changed since my mom last had a baby.  In labor, Sheila provided constant support, making suggestions, encouraging me on and reminding me of my birth preferences when I started to doubt myself.  She helped keep me and my mom calm when there were concerns about my daughter's heartrate.  She stayed with me in the hospital for a bit after my daughter was born, making sure I had everything I needed before she left.  After my daughter and I were home, Sheila came to visit and brought a home cooked meal and spent time processing my labor and delivery.  She even brought a typed up copy of some of the important moments from my labor/birth, many of which were a bit of a haze for me.  I would recommend Sheila to anyone looking for a doula and would not hesitate to use her again if I have another baby.
