“I will continue to marvel at how smoothly everything went and at the difference made by having loving, solid support from you… We really would have not done it without you.”  -Amelia

“After having Amy as our homebirth teacher we felt that having her at the birth would make things go so much smoother. Our instincts were right. Amy was a great blessing to have involved in the birth of Odin. She was encouraging, uplifting, and so supportive that I often felt that she was completely in tune with what was going on in my mind. Through each stage of birth she was standing by ready to provide suggestions and support while allowing me to go through the natural process. I can’t imagine having Odin without Amy being part of that journey. We simply can’t thank her enough for being such a strong person with such a bright shining light.”  -Paige

“Amy, we are grateful to have found you for our son’s birth!  You are warm, caring, easy to talk to, and were responsive to all our needs.  You were fully engaged and supported both of us during our birth experience.  Most importantly, your goal as a doula was to meet our personal dreams for our birth.  Thank you!” -Laura

“We are so glad you were able to be with us during our birth…Thank you for knowing exactly what to do at exactly the right time.  That was extraordinarily helpful.  If we have another baby you better be available.” -Amber

I wavered in my decision about whether or not to commit to a natural childbirth for many weeks. Finally, I committed to a natural birth at 32 weeks, but doubts kept creeping into my mind. My husband and I decided at 36 weeks that hiring a doula would be our best option. So, we met with Amy.  From the very first meeting I could sense that Amy was caring and knowledgeable, but most importantly, she was just as committed as I was to helping me achieve the birth I wanted.

As a first time Mom it can be a little scary when you aren’t sure about what to expect. Amy really helped me in the weeks leading up to labor with preparing my heart and mind for the experience. She was also available for any questions I had (and I had A LOT of questions). Finally, she was there every step of the way during my labor to offer encouragement to both myself and my husband… In a nutshell, I’m honestly not sure that I could have had the natural birth I desired without the support of Amy. She was a huge blessing to me and my (now) family of 3! “ – Emma

“Having an unmedicated birth was a very high hope for my husband and I when we found out we would be bringing our first baby into this world. Hiring a doula was one of the first things we committed to after becoming pregnant and we knew that natural birthing classes would be in our future. When we signed up for our doula Amy’s Hypnobirthing course, I had no idea how much my personal yoga practice would mirror these incredible teachings. I even began to incorporate many of the breathing exercises and visualizations in the yoga classes that I was teaching. The Hypnobirthing classes gave both my husband and me so many tools for the birth and made me a true believer in the power of hypnosis. Even a few musical notes from the Rainbow Relaxation exercise will still immediately take me into a deep state of relaxation. The affirmations that I listened to everyday helped me to recognize my fears and instilled a confidence in my body and my baby that I still possess today. We can do anything! The birth of our baby boy was an experience that I still reflect back on daily and each time feel empowered and amazed. The practice of Hypnobirthing helped my husband and I work closely together along with our doula as a guide. We breathed, laughed, moaned, cried, relaxed, held one another, and encouraged each other, and the sweet boy that emerged will forever be our reminder of the beauty and peace and power that can come with birthing a child.”—–AnneDean

 “Thank you for helping make my VBAC possible. Having your help meant so much. “ -Jenny

“ Amy came into my life as an angel! There is no other way to put it. I didn’t have a positive experience during the birth of my first daughter and was anxious about how my second experience would turn out. My first decision was to do things differently and take charge of the situation. This is when Amy came into play. Amy gave me the confidence needed to trust my body and my decisions. She supported me mentally and physically, and helped me have the birth experience I always dreamed of having. I found in Amy the strong person I was looking for to help me think through each decision and get the desired outcome.” -Manoella

“Amy is the “extra” that makes labor easier for both mom and dad. During labor my husband loved she provided the extra pair of hands he needed.  When baby arrived I loved having Amy there to help me so my husband could focus on our new baby.” –Renee

“I had never once heard the word doula until my wife brought it up, so I have to admit at first I was a little skeptical.  But, boy oh boy, was I wrong!  The whole experience was great!  Amy was invaluable for my wife and me.  She was extremely encouraging to my wife throughout the whole process and, no matter what was going on, always took the time to make sure I was ok too! I couldn’t imagine going through the birth without her!”  -Nathan
