Testimonial for Shannon Mathews CD(DONA)

We cannot thank Shannon enough for making our birth experience so much better! My husband and I were originally interested in hiring a doula to support my desire for a natural birth, but we quickly learned there are so many benefits beyond that.


Shannon supported us throughout the entire pregnancy and was a great resource for us to ask any/all of our first-time pregnancy and parenting questions. She was always able to provide us with evidence-based answers. She has such a wide range of knowledge we truly felt we could ask her anything!  Toward the end of the pregnancy, our child was diagnosed with IUGR and we had to navigate weekly decisions around induction. Having Shannon's support to help weigh medical advice and our own preferences/emotions was extremely helpful, giving us the confidence to advocate for ourselves while keeping the baby's health as our top priority.


Another thing we loved about Shannon and Nova Birth Services was they were supportive of us having the birth we wanted and did not try to push any personal preferences onto us. I ultimately decided to have a medicated labor and Shannon was just as supportive as she would've been during a natural birth. She was with me through all of my active labor and I credit her positioning skills to getting my baby into a spot where I only had to push for 30 minutes!


We would highly recommend hiring Shannon as your doula, we plan to do so for future children! It is so helpful to have someone who supports your vision for pregnancy/labor outside of the medical system with so much knowledge. Shannon is that person!
