Testimonial for Nicole Busse, LMT, CD(DONA)

There are so many reasons I can give for hiring a doula, and upon reflection, here are some that truly mattered to me and my birthing experience.

I had a beautiful birth at Special Beginnings, a birthing center which offers a birth at your own speed and without medical intervention unless absolutely needed. The midwives were amazing, and attended to the birth of our daughter and her health and safety. Nicole attended to me, along with my husband. Whether a first time mom like I was, or having done this before, I can say with certainty that having Nicole there was one of the reasons I had the empowering birth I dreamed of.

She reminded me that my body was made to do this. She calmly told me, over and over, you ARE doing this! I took childbirth classes with Nicole so I knew exactly what was happening to my body, but yet in the moment the overwhelming emotion and energy to birth, a baby can take over. She kept me focused on the small things like breathing and meditating which allowed me to fully be aware and an active part of my birth. She celebrated each contraction, she held my hand and encouraged me, and in the hardest moments, she kept me focused on the moment when I would hold and meet my daughter.

Nicole never took the role of my husband! He was an amazing partner, but it was so nice to know she was looking out for us and our bond was only strengthened by her presence. My husband was nervous and I know her calming presence allowed him to be there for me at his own comfort level.

The way you remember your birth story, your experience of having a child, no matter how the baby was born, is as important as the actual process. Nicole made ours special and had my birth not gone as intended, she still would have made it her goal to make me feel empowered, protected, and in control. She excelled in every one of these things and I look forward to her being our doula again soon!
