Testimonial for Megan Gaydosh

My husband and I decided to start trying for a baby the summer of 2022. I was 35 and nervous/anxious about my age. By August I was pregnant, but by September I had a miscarriage. After waiting a couple months, I was pregnant before Christmas.

There is something about her that is so incredibly calming and nurturing. I never thought twice about having her in the room when I gave birth to my first baby. Megan was professional, open minded, accommodating, helpful, entertaining, and kind along the whole journey. She interviewed my husband and I while I was pregnant to learn about our birth plan and expectations with zero judgement. She checked in and gave helpful tips along the way. She even poped by our home to give me massages and gave my husband tips/advice on what he could do to make me comfortable. I was induced for preeclampsia that hit after 40 weeks and she was at the hospital as soon as I called.

We don't know what we would have done if Megan hadn't been there. She helped my husband encourage me through contractions, kept our families in the waiting room informed, and she also brought things such as combs for contraction distractions and fans to put by the bed. She held one of my legs during labor and helped me breathe. She got pictures and videos of the birth too, which I would have been devasted not to have. I had to stay longer in the hospital from hemorrhaging/ preeclampsia but Megan came back and even silently rocked our son on her chest while my husband and I tried to rest. She even made me "padsicles" for the swelling and pain. It was the most vulnerable and intimate moment of my life and I'm so glad Megan was there.

My husband said it would have been really hard for him had she not been there for support and guidance for him as well. From the deepest part of my heart, thank you Megan. Your energy and experience kept the most important day of my life so calm and that's exactly the world I wanted to bring my son into.
