Testimonial for Evana Cooper, BA, CD AMANI

My husband and I have said multiple times over the first week with our baby that we could not have gone through the birth experience without Evana.  Even before the birth, Evana's caring (yet also tell-it-to-you-straight) nature calmed our anxieties and made birth feel like an experience, not a medical procedure or emergency.  Throughout my pregnancy, Evana answered all my questions and provided tips and resources when I asked for them, providing a listening ear when I didn't ask for them.  During the birth, she helped us understand what was normal and what wasn't, positions to try, and also just provided conversation and comfort to get us through the long hours (oxytocin boost!).  Her steady calmness added to the overall experience but I also really appreciated how well she worked with our doctor and nurses, becoming part of the birthing team rather than just another person in the room.  She helped us push for what we wanted but also guided us when it was time to deviate from the plan.  Now, after birth, she is still there for us - answering questions and telling us it's time to enlist additional support or just cheering for us from afar that we got this.  There are no words for the value that holds for us as first time parents.

Evana feels at once both like a caring and nurturing mother and your best friend you just want to chat with.  If we are ever able to have a second child, she will be my first call - our family is so fortunate to have found her and we will never forget the impact she had on this moment of our lives.
