Testimonial for Shannon Mathews CD(DONA)

My wife Caitlin found Shannon early on in her pregnancy after sharing experiences with some friends of hers on the birth experience with the addition of a doula. I honestly didn't know what to expect as a first time dad so any help in my mind was a plus. Shannon went beyond any possible expectation I had throughout the pregnancy and on birth day.

From being available to Caitlin continuously ready to answer questions as well as supply us with resources; and being ultra responsive when Caitlin went into labor in the middle of the night Shannon was the utmost professional! Without Shannon I definitely feel that our birth experience as well as the implementation of our birth plan would not have gone as well as it did. The methods and positioning practices as well as the different pushing positions she was educated on (some positions our nurse didn't even know about) tremendously helped changed up the pace of labor and slowly get the baby into the right position and keep Caitlin's energy up. She provided us so many little nuggets and suggestions only a person who's gone through many births would know. She was able to show me as the dad things I could even participate in to aid Caitlin as best as possible that I had no idea were helpful. The benefit of a third, neutral party in the room that is highly educated, and resourceful was worth its weight in gold. Shannon was worth every single cent, and we have continually referred her to some of our friends who are beginning their family planning. All of the professionals at NOVA Birth services were amazing throughout the pregnancy.

If we decide to expand our family more in the future, Shannon will be one of our 1st calls.  Thank you so much Shannon for helping us (mostly Caitlin) bring our little boy into the world!
