Testimonial for Nicole Busse, LMT, CD(DONA)

My husband and I had our first child in August 2012 and we couldn’t have gotten through it with out the assistance of our birth doula We wanted the best birth experience possible. I also was very scared of a c-section and wanted to learn how, if at all, I could avoid that.Nicole knows everything from calming techniques in labor to the best positioning to be in for the baby.  I went to 42 weeks with my baby boy and had a bit of a difficult end to what was overall a great pregnancy! I had something called “prodromal labor”.  Basically my contractions were very painful but they were irregular in duration, length, and intensity. We were on the phone with Nicole until 1am that Thursday morning that my labor began.  She was so helpful in calming the both of us down and in telling me different positions I could get in to relieve some of the pain. This labor went on for the next 4 nights! During the day I would have some pains but then it would stop for the most part. Finally, on the day I was scheduled to be induced at midnight, my contractions got longer and stronger in intensity. When we got to the hospital I was 6 cm’s already. Through my entire labor Nicole was talking me through contractions and suggesting positions that might help me to feel better. She also was reminding me of important things to do throughout labor, like go to the bathroom, and drink water and put on chapstick. All of the things that you cannot remember in labor (and your husband won’t either) Once I was finally ready to push she was an awesome coach! Thanks to her I pushed for an hour and our baby boy was here!She helped me get started with breastfeeding and assured that I got to hold my baby boy right away!  She also answered lots of questions and still does post birth and delivery.  When we have baby #2 we for sure want Nicole to be there!
