So grateful we selected Sheri to support us through our birth experience. She was knowledgeable, supportive, calm, and instilled confidence in myself and my partner as first time parents. She met with us on 2 occasions to discuss birth preferences. Having the time to discuss and reflect were vital to preparing and gave us time to consider any options we weren't aware of. Sheri's support via text was vital the few weeks leading up to delivery. I was reassured knowing if I had any questions about interventions or when to go to the hospital that she would be able to give me good advice. Sheri was prompt at getting to the hospital. Because of the circumstance, she actually beat my husband and instantly put me at ease. It provided peace of mind to have her in the room when a nurse was not present, and on a couple occasions, she knew when to grab someone to help. My labor and delivery were quick, smooth, and beautiful; everything I hoped for. I contribute the beauty and relatively comfortable labor & delivery to her instilling a confidence in me that I could deliver baby without medication and with minimal interventions. Educating myself through the education Sheri provided or resources she emailed were vital to me being comfortable and knowing what to expect. Sheri captured the most heartwarming and beautiful pictures and videos of our little family in the making. These memories will be looked upon fondly for many years as we remember the special day our son was born. Finally, we had Sheri out for a few postpartum visits as well. It was great to have her around as my husband transitioned back to work. She helped me with whatever odds-n-ends housework and provided some baby care tips. It was nice having someone around who is easy to talk to and who is excellent with babies. I knew our son was in safe hands if I needed to do a task baby-free. I would encourage any mother and father that there are infinite benefits to having the support of a doula like Sheri.
