Amy was exactly what I needed for my birth experience. She was helpful, kind, strong, and she listened to me and always kept my needs in mind. I am a single mother and had some above-and-beyond needs because of that, and she fulfilled them without making me feel bad about it. I was able to give birth naturally (no epidural), and Amy was one of the main reasons I could maintain the frame of mind to experience childbirth unmedicated. Her pre- and post-partum visits also reassured me and gave me valuable resources to get through this whole process. My little girl and I thank her and would recommend her to anyone! ~ Kristen F.
Amy was such a wonderful support throughout my labor! My husband and I decided to have a doula for the birth of our second child after a much less than ideal experience with our first. I was determined to have a VBAC and I felt that a doula would provide both me and my husband the support to help us achieve my goal. Amy more than exceeded my expectations! She was so good at providing advice when we asked for it and she even was able to make little suggestions right when we needed them without our asking. She was kind, gentle and so very knowledgeable! I felt SO comfortable with her. More than anything else, the information she gave me about what was happening empowered me and enabled me to not only have a VBAC but to do it without drugs (which was not my intention initially)!
In addition, Amy was very supportive of my decisions for labor. I never felt that she was trying to push me in a direction I didn’t want to go. I highly recommend Amy as a doula! ~Jennie E.
Amy was a wonderful support to both me & my husband during labor and the birth of our son Oliver on 4/11. She met us at the hospital when we checked in and stayed with us for a couple of hours following the birth. She also came back to check in with us the following day. During my labor Amy was calm & encouraging, and she anticipated my needs before I voiced them. We were blessed to have Amy with us at Oliver’s birth! ~Katy R.
We hired Amy two days before our son was born. Amy was very understanding and flexible with our last-minute decision. Even though we didn’t get to spend a lot of time establishing a relationship, Amy was exactly what we needed during labor and delivery. She was compassionate, supportive, patient, and extremely helpful to both me and my husband. Amy made gentle suggestions at the right moments — precisely the kind of personality I needed during labor — who wants to be ordered around by someone who thinks it’s their show? Amy definitely put me and my husband first; she knew when to advocate for us and when to quietly support. She was fantastic. My only regret is not having her around for my first child’s birth! ~Robyn R.
