Testimonial for Elysia Douglas

Upon meeting Lysa I was very impressed. She is warm, compassionate, shares the same beliefs and is nonjudgmental. She is knowledgable about all things birth, pregnancy, providers and has information about practices and hospitals. Before I had even officially hired her I had a question about my pregnancy and while I was waiting for my midwife to return my call, she answered the question and calmed by anxieties. Before and during my delivery her calm approach is one I really desired and needed. She is encouraging, sweet, funny and down to earth which are characteristics I looked for and needed in a doula. She fit our needs perfectly.

During our labor and delivery she came to our house and spent time with me while I labored, she followed us to the hospital and didn't leave us until we were settled in the post partum room and we all knew our son was going to be ok (he was in the NICU for a brief stint) When we arrived at the hospital and realized that the water birth I had planned for was NOT an option due to a nurse shortage, Lysa sweetly reminded us that the ultimate goal was healthy mom and healthy baby. Throughout my extremely fast delivery we had an unsupportive nurse and Lysa was constantly in my ear radiating her positivity and encouragement while the nurse was not listening very well to our requests. Lysa stayed constant reminding me of our ultimate goals and helping me to mentally push past the fact that my birth was not going as planned. Even though I was not able to have a water birth, my birth was perfect and it was due completely to Lysa and my husband working as a team and reminding us of what was important.

I have recommended Lysa to multiple friends now, some pregnant and some trying to conceive. I highly recommend her as your doula!
