"We had a doula for the birth of our first daughter, so it was no question if we would have one for our second. We met with Shannon and immediately felt comfortable with her. She is very calm and sweet natured. She asked us lots of questions about the type of labor and birth we hoped to have. She sent us extensive literature to follow up with what we had talked about. When the time came to meet our baby, we called to let her know we were in labor and then later called and asked her to come meet us. From the moment she came, I knew we were in good hands. My labor was much faster and more intense this time around. If it weren't for her calming presence and positive affirmations, I'm not sure I would have made it through. She gave me suggestions to try new positions and ideas during labor. Not only that, but because I knew she was taking such good care of me, I was able to actually relax and sleep a bit through the last few hours of labor! Shannon is a wonderful person and excellent partner to have during pregnancy and through birth!" - Allison B.
"My husband was THE most skeptical person when it came to hiring a doula - but after meeting Shannon he was on board! And after delivery he was convinced that working with a doula is the way to go! This was my first pregnancy and I wanted to make sure everyone in the delivery room was supportive of the kind of birth that I desired - a natural hospital birth. Shannon was SO supportive. During labor she reminded me of the desires I had expressed prior to being in labor (without being pushy or judgmental – just sweet, calm reminders). She made sure we understood the information the hospital staff gave us so that we could make informed decisions for each step of the birthing process. She helped me understand everything that was happening to my body during labor. She also knew how and when to encourage my husband to coach me and she knew when to step in and encourage us herself. Shannon also helped me with positions to help relieve the pain naturally. Having Shannon as a doula helped my husband and I stay calm during one of our most emotional days." - Morgan J.
