Bethany was my doula for the birth of my third child. She stopped over to check on me during early labor and to see how I was managing contractions at home. She left us with a plan for my early labor and told us she would see us in about 3 hours. Bethany was right! At the 3 hour mark, I was in active labor and ready for her to
help me manage the contractions. Bethany helped me with relaxation, keeping me upright and words of
encouragement. My baby girl, Ainslee, was born after 4 more hours of active labor with my husband, two children, midwife, and Bethany in the room. Her back massage was the best - I joke I need her to come over every week. Bethany is a fantastic doula and an amazing support to my whole family.

I hired Bethany as a doula for my November birth. I was excited and scared about labor. She was a
calming presence during the pregnancy and during the birth. I was not planning on a
natural birth, but with her back massage, encouragement and techniques for helping me keep
laboring without pain management, I delivered my 8lb baby boy without an epidural! I was so
happy to have him in my arms and to know I did it without drugs. Bethany was so helpful to me
and my husband throughout my labor. I would never give birth without a doula there!! She was so
amazing! Thank you!
Bethany was truly an amazing doula before and during my birth experience. She
came by several times to ensure my husband and I were comfortable prior to the
birth and she was present the whole time at the birthing center. She was a calm
and assuring presence, and she handled the majority of the communication between
us and the midwives to take the pressure off my family. I cannot recommend her
enough to either first-time mothers or even mothers of multiples who just want a
companion for the process. I love her!

Bethany was fabulous support during my birth in July! Throughout our long and intense labor,
she never left my side. Her comfort measures including massage and position changes
helped me make my dream of natural childbirth come true! I would recommend her to
anyone looking for a doula.

I hired a doula at the end of my ninth month of pregnancy. Bethany was wonderful at
calming me down in early labor and helping support me through the difficult hours
at the hospital. I can't believe I waited so long to decide to hire a doula. She was

I was aware of the Doula services, but never used one. With my second child,
I wanted help and sought out for a doula. Starting from the communication, to
know my specific requirements, to help me put together my birth plan, and till
helping me through my big day, Bethany did a wonderful job. She not only
provided me helpful information and websites, but also gave me tips over phone
through my early stage labor. On the night that I delivered my baby (2 a.m.),
she was very quick to reach the hospital in time and provided me with comfort
and courage that I needed during that time. I can never forget Bethany's help
during my second pregnancy. Bethany also helped my family by extending a helping
hand to my older son (4 year old, who was present in the labor room) and my
husband. So, Bethany is friendly, easy to work with, and very sincere with her
profession. I would recommend her to all the ladies who want a doula.

My experience with Bethany was everything I could have hoped for. She met
with me a few times at my home to discuss my birth plan and the stages of labor,
and answered any questions my husband and I had. On the day of she met us at the
birth center and stayed the entire time. She was incredibly knowledgeable and
supportive. I will definitely consider using her services again when my husband
and I decide on number two. I cannot recommend her enough!
