Testimonial for Cheryl Murfin, MA/IAEd, CD

Our experience with the amazing Cheryl was unique, but it demonstrates her amazing capacity to flow with a family's needs as they happen! We met Cheryl for the first time, loved her, and then a couple of hours later that same night (and a month early) I went into labor! Cheryl didn't miss a step, and even without having a detailed plan with us, came right away to assist. She was able to anticipate and fulfill both my and my husband's needs throughout my fast and surprising birth experience. In fact, neither of us can imagine the experience without her! I felt her presence like a peaceful island in the stormy sea of labor. Her physical work with me in the tub was an enormous relief when I didn't think I could make it another moment. Cheryl knew exactly when to step in and when to let my husband take the lead, and he sings her praises every time we tell our birth story. As he says, "At the end, during pushing, there was a woman to woman connection you had with Cheryl that was so powerful to see." And all of that was improvised after meeting that very day! At one point late in labor, as I was draped over Cheryl, I thought, "I can't believe I just met this woman, and yet I trust her so much." Cheryl inspires that trust. I'm so thankful that she was a part of our daughter's birth!
