Doula Bethany's patient story 1
Erin shares about her experience giving birth with Bethany by her side.
As a first time mom I was nervous and had so many questions during my pregnancy, especially leading up to delivery. I was lucky enough to have Bethany by my side to answer my questions and guide me through this special time! Bethany helped set the tone by doing an initial meet to discuss her vision and practice as well as to discuss my birth plan. We had a plan yet as you know, life likes to change them! I had planned to deliver vaginally yet by 38 weeks my baby was still breach even after all the tips that Bethany had given. A c-section was scheduled — initially I was distraught to hear this as I wanted to have the “full experience” of giving birth through laboring. Bethany assured me that everything would be fine and eased my concerns. Once in the delivery room Bethany was there to calm and center me through massage, and essential oils. She also was great support to my partner. She was by side after our daughter was born to assure me everything went well and walked me through what had just happened. She even took photos which meant a lot. Bethany is a wonderful, caring woman with a deep knowledge and appreciation for what she does. I highly recommend her as a doula. Thank you Bethany for being your support. — Erin
