Testimonial for Shelia Kandeler, CD(DONA)

I cannot recommend Shelia highly enough. She was an indispensable part of both of my childbirth experiences, nearly 5 years apart, each of which was unmedicated and induced. Shelia's calm demeanor and reassuring presence inspired a sense of strength and calm that carried me through some of the most uncertain and scary moments of my life.

Before the births, Shelia made herself available to address any concerns or questions I had, helping me feel more prepared and at ease. She is also an excellent source of recommendations - from doctors to birthing classes to guidance on birthing decisions, her suggestions were always excellent.

During labor, Shelia's support was unwavering. She knew exactly what to say and do to comfort me and guide me through each contraction and decision. She was somehow able to intuit what I needed, guiding me gently toward progress at each step, while always being totally respectful and mindful of my wishes for each birth.

After the births, she continued to be a source of support, checking in on me and offering a listening ear when I needed it most. When I wasn't sure who would understand, I always knew Sheila would. Her dedication to her clients is truly remarkable, and I am forever grateful for the role she played in bringing my children into the world.

If you are looking for a doula who will be there for you in every sense of the word, Shelia is the one. She is so much more than a doula, she is a steadfast presence who will guide you through one of the most transformative experiences of your life with compassion, wisdom, and unwavering support. I feel so lucky to have worked with her.
