Testimonial for Avalyn Collier, CD

I still can't believe I had a compeltely unmedicated birth with my second child! How I wish I knew Avalyn when I had my first child! Avalyn was so helpful and encouraging throughout my pregnancy and delivery. She is the reason why I was willing and able to trust my body to give birth to my child without using epidural. She visited me during my second and third trimesters and shared resources that are research-based and informative. She also showed me techniques to relax my body and cope with the pain. The breathing techniques came handy when my labor started. I was able to breathe through most of my dialation process, when I arrived at the hospital on that Friday night, I was already 6/7 centimeters dialated. Three hours later I had my daughter. Avalyn was by my side, she reminded me to continue to breathe, massaged my body, offered me water, and held my hands whenever I needed support... Comparing to my first birthing experience (I had both pictocin and epidural), this time I was able to trust my body to pass each contraction, to rest, and to push. I recovered so much faster after the delievery. Not only Avalyn's encouraging words made a huge difference, so did her professional training for being a doula. She encouraged me to speak up for myself and my child, and helped me understand how my body works through professional rescources. I would not have done it without her support! Other than my husband, she is the first person who got to meet my daughter, so she will always hold a special place in our family. If you are thinking about hiring a doula, don't hesitate to reach out to Avalyn, she is absolutely wonderful!
