Testimonial for Shannon Mathews CD(DONA)

Our ob/gyn was retiring and my wife wanted to have another person other than the medical team for that emotional support and trust during her labor. We decided to go with Shannon as our doula after a lot of internet research. She supported and provided us valuable feedback throughout the third trimester. She was very responsive with all our communications.

Labor was progressing very fast this time around. My wife would have gone through a back labor if not for Shannon's doula tactics. When my wife progressed from 7cm to 10cm in minutes the nurse wasn't ready to believe it until Shannon stepped in and convinced the nurse to check again. Everybody in the labor room was happy to see Shannon as our doula which was a reassurance that she is pretty good at what she does.
Her timely interventions, her expertise and her pain management methods all made this completely unmedicated birth experience so smooth and rewarding for us. 

As a father, I realised that hiring a doula is not only helpful for the mother but also for us dads as I could be more present for the entire birth experience. We both agree that hiring Shannon was probably one of the best decisions we made
