When I was pregnant, I was interested in seeking a doula’s services to help guide me and my husband through the birth experience. I had heard how beneficial a doula could be in the delivery room, but I had no idea just how important and special that relationship would be.
We interviewed with Angie at the beginning of my third trimester and I felt a connection to her immediately. I think I even asked her to be our doula before the interview was over. Angie has a warm and steadying presence, which is exactly what I needed. Angie met with us 4 weeks before we went into labor and helped us think through our birth plan and our hopes for the birth experience. We felt heard as she listened to our ideas, desires, hopes and fears.
When the time came to let Angie know that I was feeling contractions, she helped us identify pre-labor and I was able to relax at home before heading to the hospital. At the hospital, her presence was felt immediately. I don’t think I let her or my husband leave my side throughout my long labor. Angie worked with my husband to provide consistent encouragement and love. She had great ideas to help me shift position or frame of mind when I felt discouraged or stuck. She also worked closely with our midwife and L&D nurse and she shared her knowledge to get me in better positions to help the baby move through the birth canal.
She became the floatation device that helped me surf the waves of contractions and helped me over each hurtle of my labor. Angie visited our new family a couple weeks after delivery. She helped us process our birth story, which I found very empowering. She shared her perspective, pictures, and lots of love for the three of us. I cannot fully express how wonderful Angie was for us because a lot of our experience was felt on an emotional level. But I can say that Angie was a wonderful fit for our family, and we feel beyond lucky to have found her.
