Testimonial for Ellen Hsu (Mandarin/English)

I wouldn't be able to achieve the unmedicated birth without Ellen's support. My OB warned me many times that I may need c-section because my baby was a big baby at the 97 percentile according to the ultrasound exam. Since I involved Ellen into my birth team 5-6 months before my expected due date, Ellen had proactively communicated with me and my husband on the exercise and practice we could do to prepare for the smooth labor.

My baby was born 10 days earlier than the expected due date in the early morning. Ellen arrived the hospital before midnight and accompanied us throughout the labor process and after the baby was born. She cheered me on, helped me change my positions for different labor stages, communicated with the nurses when they wanted to administer unnecessary medication (the nurses are great but sometimes there are different views), etc. With Ellen's help, I had a smooth labor and was able to enjoy the skin-to-skin time and breastfed my baby right after birth.
