We appreciated your calming, steady presence. We liked how you ‘primed’ us for different scenarios and reassured us that things we were experiencing during labor were expected. You were involved and hands-on and you genuinely cared!
You provided us with helpful info to prep for labor ahead of time, and when the time came, you jumped right in to help me through the toughest part of labor, even though my labor had accelerated much faster than we expected. Your postpartum info and support was very helpful too! You helped work us through some unexpected issues to keep breastfeeding on track in the first few days.
Your presence at our birth made the seemingly impossible feel possible. There were so many ways in which you supported us - both leading up to the birth and during labor itself. More than anything we are so appreciative for your calm demeanor and tireless advocacy for all three of us. We couldn’t have done it without you!
