We hired Stacie very last minute, about three weeks before our birth, and couldn’t be happier about it! I had heard doulas helped a lot with labors and births, so I was lucky enough to meet Stacie a few weeks before our due date. Even before my labor, she was very helpful with helping me draft a birth plan and sent very encouraging texts. Especially at the end after my due date passed, she continued to boost my confidence and make me feel great.
On the day I went into labor, I texted her a few times, letting her know things were starting to happen and she helped me stay excited and confident. Things moved quickly, so by the time she got to our house it was time to leave for the hospital. She helped me stay confident after I had my bloody show and reassured me it was normal, but definitely time to get going. At the hospital, she was there to help with positive words and encouragement, and rubbed my back in the most perfect way during contractions. She knew exactly what to do to help ease the pressure the best she could.
I am extremely happy with my birth story, and Stacie helped immensely with my confidence, as well as my husband’s. We were very lucky to find her last minute, and I would recommend her to anyone! Thank you for helping make our birth story amazing!
