Testimonial for Liz Walsh

One of the best decisions I made during my pregnancy was to hire Liz as our doula. Having her there to support me and my husband bettered my birthing experience. Liz took charge from the moment I messaged her to let her know I was having contractions, and arrived at our doorstep in the middle of the night when my waves became more regular and intense. When we were told at the birth center that I was not dilated enough to be admitted, we drove to a hotel nearby and Liz guided me through different positions to get my baby into an optimal position for birth. Back at the birth center a few hours later, she continued to give me hip squeeze after hip squeeze to counter the downward pressure of the waves, and she reminded me to relax and to breathe through them. After my baby was born Liz supported me with aftercare, allowing my husband to bond with our baby. She continued to check in with us during the postpartum period and offered encouragement and a listening ear when I really needed it.

Liz is also an incredible photographer and took both our maternity and birth photos. Liz was flexible about the location of the maternity shoot, and my husband and I were able to take our maternity photos at sunset in a vegetable field of my family’s farm. I absolutely adored the experience; in a time when I felt insecure about my ballooning body, Liz’s photos made me feel beautiful. The birth photos captured sweet moments between my husband and I as we weathered those long, difficult hours together, and the moment of my daughter’s arrival. I cherish those images, too!

What makes Liz an exceptional doula is her deep care for her clients. Though I knew her only a short time before I went into labor, I trusted her completely in guiding me through the ebbs and flows of birth. I truly think I may not have had the positive birthing experience I had without her strong and gentle presence. I highly recommend her, especially for a first-time mom!
