Testimonial for Tonya Schieler, CBD, CPD, HCHD

I wanted a natural childbirth without medication intervention in a hospital setting more than anything, thanks to Tonya, that dream became a reality. Tonya was there for me since the beginning as a natural nuturing mama who took care of me as one of her own. Her presence is very calming. She is a gentle kind-hearted person who is available, methodical, reasonable, and in your corner. She took the time to understand my birth plan thoroughly, helping me develop it, too. Tonya was the advocate I dreamt of throughout the entire process, and especially in the hospital when it counted the most. She did well navigating the medical setting and my overbearring mother's personality. Her experience was on full display throughout my entire strenuous 2-day labor process. You can count on her to show up and be there when it counts. I could not have had a natural labor without her by my side through the active back labor I experienced. She had a good technique to help with pain management. It was really great to have someone there exclusively for me who was knowledgeable about birth. A husband or partner cannot support you in that way unless they're an expert, and the medical staff has other priorities like charting and other patients. Her rate is reasonable for the services she provides. I think if you pay more you are paying for frills that weren't a priority to me. I don't need someone to shower me with treats, etc. I needed someone I could count on and I got more than that. I had someone in my corner who understood my needs and showed up and got the important job done! Tonya was also my post-partum doula. She got everything done I needed and went above and beyond. She was caring throughout, downtoearth, warm, and affectionate. I never felt judged in my home. I was always comfortable around her. She is great with my daughter. I liked how she was interested in staying connected with her in the future with updates, etc. You are lucky if you get to have Tonya as your doula!
