Testimonial for Elaine Allen

We immediately knew Elaine was the match for us given her energy and calming nature. She is very experienced, knowledgeable and confident in her work. Before the big day, Elaine came to our home to talk through our preferences for birth, educated us, giving us tips/tricks, and practiced some labor positions with us. Leading up to the due date she was always available for any questions or concerns that we had, which was  helpful when you are a nervous first time mum like me. She regularly checked in after doctor visits and in general. She really showed us that she cares, which was so encouraging and made me feel very safe and confident. My labor began at 2am. We called Elaine and she made the drive over to our house in the middle of the night to support us. Had she not been with us, we would have gone to the hospital way too early. She helped me labor at home, get into different positions to bring the baby into a good position, had many natural pain relieving methods that we used and just made my “labor at home experience” amazing! Once my water broke we made our way to the hospital. My labor and delivery process ended up taking 32+ hours. Elaine stayed by my side and was a huge advocate for me as we sought to deliver our baby naturally. She kept me informed and calm throughout and helped me take all the steps necessary to get my baby to drop into the final position. I felt in control of my birth the entire time and that is thanks to her! After 24 hours, we had to opt for an epidural or face increased the risk of a C-section. But with all of Elaine's help, we felt confident with this decision and were able to deliver our baby boy healthy and happy. I would recommend Elaine to anybody and will use her services for future pregnancies! I am convinced that I would have not been able to deliver this baby vaginally without her help! I had a very hard and long labor but because of Elaines help it is a very happy memory!
