Testimonial for In Joy Birth Collective

I struggle to find the right words in this review because the story is hard to believe even for me and it happened to me. I was supposed to have a homebirth but my water broke prematurely. So after 20 hours of labor in the hospital I found out that my original midwives would not be able to support me in the hospital.... I was devastated because they were supposed to become my doulas if we transferred to a hospital birth. I felt utterly abandoned and helpless. Some friends of mine knew about InJoy birth collective and they contacted them on my behalf to find me a doula. They sent Chelsea over to the rescue and let me tell you she saved my whole mentality with my birth. My birth went completely opposite to what I had planned and Chelsea stood by my side for another gosh about 28 hours while we waited to meet baby girl. She supported me, she cried with me,  comforted me, forced me to drink water and fuel my body. Yea yea that's what all doulas are supposed to do BUT she did all of that for me coming in completely blind. We had never met before. It was super last minute and she was so willing. Not only did she care for me. But she spent the time to get to know who I am, my hobbies, and music taste. Her care went far beyond just birth support. If it weren't for Chelsea I think my birth would have ended up a cesarean but because she knew what I wanted we did every spinning babies move known to man, we did laps around the hospital, she kept me changing positions to encourage baby girl to come on out. Finally after 48 hours of active labor, and lots of faith. Our baby girl came out healthy and strong. It was such a blessing to have Chelsea as a doula and had I not moved states I would use her over and over again. 5++ stars. HIGHLY recommend
