Testimonial for Allison Kohl

We weren't sure about hiring a Doula but a friend urged me to at least look into it. She had said that if she could give me one piece of advice it would be to hire a Doula, it was a game changer for her.

We decided to start the process of searching beacuse we were a few weeks away from my due date and since I had developed gestiational diabetes our home birth plan quickly turned into a hospital birth plan. As well we would not have our midwife with us during the labour, only the delivery, so we knew we wanted a Doula.

We found Allison and we are so glad that we did!!! I honestly didn't know anything about Doulas, what they did and how it could impact what we were about to go through. Allison walked us through it all and was so informative and helpful, and really let us know that we had more of a say in how things could go than we ever thought.

We only got to meet with her inititally then once again before the birth. The night before our second meeting, and 10 days early, my water broke so it was game on! This was really where Allison shone! She was so instrumental in helping me keep my contractions at bay. Between Allison's life saving lower back massages and my husband's physical support, I almost riped off his hoddie pockets, they both encouraged me and calmed me and we got through it pretty spectacularly. After 10 hours of hospital labour (6 hours stalled at 8cm) I know that we both couldn't have gotten through it the way we did without Allison with us.

I would not hesitate to reccommend Allison to anyone, she is amazing! And if we find ourselves with a second babe on the way she is the one we are calling.

Thanks Allison, you were a star and we couldn't have done it without you!
