Testimonial for Sheilena Martinez

Like so many people, I didn’t get the birth I imagined, and I’m so grateful that Sheilena was there helping us through all of it. She camped out in the chair and was by our sides through one of the harder weeks of our lives.

She had great advice and helped create order out of what felt like chaos, and when it was clear that a vaginal birth wasn’t going to happen, she helped me see through the fog and move on to a C-section, which was completely for the best. She also supported my husband, which was so important as he watched me struggle.

Sheilena has a tremendous amount of knowledge and she has her own perspective, of course - and when it comes to your birth, she knows it’s your birth and she’s there to coach and empower you for what you need and want.

I left the hospital with a healthy baby and really hating the doctors — but so thankful that Sheilena was on our team. Doulas should be at every birth — and in a better world would be covered by health insurance, but that’s an aside!

The bottom line is, hiring Sheilena was one of the best decisions I made for our birth and I will absolutely hire her again if and when we have another baby.
