Testimonial for Rebecca Scott, CD(M)

My experience with Rebecca was absolutely amazing. I met her through the BRC when I called for help with my birth plan.  I was already 8 months pregnant and shared with her my desire to have an unmedicated birth. While I only had a little bit of time to work with her before the big day, she showed me and my husband different practices that would help me cope with an unmedicated birth.  By the recommendation of my doctor, I elected to be induced a day before my due date. When Rebecca arrived at the hospital the intense contractions started and I was already starting to change my mind on the epidural.  While Rebecca was supportive of whatever decision I made, she reminded me of my birth preferences that I discussed in the weeks prior and offered to try some ideas that would help me deal with the pain.  Rebecca helped me move into different positions, use pressure points and other methods that kept me going from hour to hour without use of an epidural.  In the 11th hour the doctors lost track of the baby’s heart rate, and then after a cervical check, they felt a foot.  The baby had flipped into breech position and because of not having vitals on baby, they called for an emergency c-section. While it did not go according to my plan, we all came out healthy.  Looking back on it, it amazes me how Rebecca was able to get me through labor the whole night.  Not only did she provide a comforting voice for me but she also reminded me of my own strength.

From my husband’s perspective, he really appreciated having another female support person in the room. She helped him help me, which was difficult for him since this was a first for him too. I know he was scared and didn’t like seeing me in so much pain but her confidence helped him be present and actively participate in labor. I can’t imagine how the evening would have gone without Rebecca’s support.
