Testimonial for Megan Boone

I am a first time mom who always imagined having a doula present for my birth, and Megan felt right for me. We had two prenatal visits and I texted her frequently in the days of early latent labour leading up to baby's birth. 

She was always a text away and arrived when I was in established labour with coffee and breakfast. She attended to me with the experience, grace, softness and strength of someone who has been a birth partner for years. She knew exactly what I needed before I did, and her touch after days of contractions felt incredible. 

We learned baby was posterior and Megan guided us through things we could try to boost oxytocin and turn baby. Unfortunately my labour failed to progress past 7cm for hours. Megan remained a strong and gracious force; she advocated for my wishes we had previously discussed, encouraged my husband to rest, and took beautiful photos without a lapse in her role as a doula. 

We ended up going for a c section and unfortunately due to policy she was unable to come with us. She met us in recovery, and through clouds of exhaustion, I remember glimpses of her supporting my early breastfeeding attempts, consensually expressing my colostrum for my husband to feed baby, and promoting skin to skin and bonding for our little family that had just been through so much. Megan was an unwavering light through a difficult labour and my husband and I truly would not have coped as well as we did without her.

She remained available via text through the early vulnerable postpartum weeks, and at my request, she shared the photos she took at our postpartum debrief visit just under a month later. The ability to process with her present was so impactful. 

All this to say I wholeheartedly recommend that every birthing person seeks out a doula for their care, and I promise you cannot go wrong with choosing Megan. I know that I will if we are fortunate enough to take this journey again.
