My husband and I had the pleasure of having Angela serve as a doula for the birth of our daughter in December of 2014. While I had been on the fence about getting a doula, this experience has made me a firm believer. The right person can provide critical support, encouragement and experience that can make all the difference during the birth process. Angela was a calm, quiet, grounding presence throughout my 38-hour labor, and I firmly believe that without her there to support both me and my husband, I would not have been able to have the un-medicated birth I wanted. Throughout the process Angela was there, providing both emotional and physical support through encouragement, massage, and insight. Giving birth to my daughter was the hardest thing I have ever done, but thanks to my labor support team, it is also one of the most rewarding and transformational experiences as well. Angela’s presence and participation in our birth journey was a true gift and I cannot recommend her highly enough.
