Testimonial for Liz Walsh

Having Liz present at our baby's birth was exactly what we needed and more. I can't imagine how we would have managed without her. Being this was our first child, we tried becoming familiar with what to expect during labor and delivery. Still, I was hardly prepared for the intensity of how it would deeply feel, and how tiring even from the partner experience.  Liz has a wonderful talent of articulating how you are feeling, sharing words of support for both the birthing person and partner, and jumping into action to help. 

My wife, Aozora, started labor overnight. Liz drove to our home before midnight. She shared movements, breathing techniques, and massages to help. She encouraged us to visit the birth center as she deduced active labor was starting when we weren't sure ourselves. No exaggeration, she gave my wife hip squeezes at every single contraction from then till our baby was born 8 hours later. I would help as much as I could, but Liz stayed with it and whether she was tired or not (how could she not be??) she showed no signs of it.

Her experience and support skills are invaluable. I would seek Liz's support at every future birth. Liz is a considerate, compassionate, empathetic, and knowledgeable doula.  I am extremely grateful.  A lovely bonus was her commitment to taking notes throughout the entire experience so that we would remember it all, and her photography and editing skills!
