Exceeded our expectations

As a first time mom I was anxious about labor and delivery. My husband and I did research and chose Shannon as our doula. Shannon exceeded all of our expectations – she was supportive, extremely knowledgeable and helped us through a difficult delivery. I highly recommend Shannon to anyone who is looking for a doula to give them support and guidance through labor and delivery.

It was amazing to have Shannon by my side during my labor. I honestly couldn’t have done it without her guidance and expertise. She worked with me through my long labor and was key to helping me during pushing. My husband is wonderful and was a great support but no one could have replaced Shannon, she was there for both of us. The hospital staff loved her as much as we did! – Clara

I knew I would need extra support for the birth of my second child. My daughter was still young and my husband and I didn’t have reliable support to care for her while I’d be in the hospital. I reached out to several doulas in the area and set up a meeting with Shannon. At our prenatal visit I liked Shannon right off the bat! During our visit she made it very clear that her support was judgement free and whatever I needed she would support me in. My anxiety was high when my doctor told me I would be going in for an induction the follwing day. That night my water broke on it’s own and Shannon was on the phone immediately talking me through everything. The next morning when I was in active labor, I called Shannon and she came right away. I felt like I was a top priority. As soon as she got there she was ready with physical and emotional support. My son was born exactly as we had planned, everything about that day was perfect! Shannon stayed with me until I was comfortable and my son was settled. She continued with texts and phone calls throughout the next several days to check in. The hospital staff couldn’t say enough nice things about Shannon, they thought we made a great team! Several people have questioned me about the cost of a doula, I questioned it at first too. I can tell you that Shannon was worth every penny, I believe without her my birth wouldn’t have gone as planned. Shannon’s passion for what she does shows and I would recommend her to anyone looking to hire a doula. -Kayla

My husband and I liked Shannon and felt comfortable with her right away. She made it clear that she is on our side, and was supportive and non-judge mental about our decisions. We also knew that she would go to bat for us with hospital staff if needed! When I went into labor at home Shannon stayed in contact with my husband via text for hours, until we wanted her to meet us at the hospital. My husband says he literally could not have done other without her guidance and support. She answered all of his questions and helped him help me. When we arrived at the hospital It was such a comfort to have Shannon by my side. Just her simple touch calmed me and helped me through delivery. She also gently reminded me of some of the things I told her I wanted from our prenatal appointment, and helped me and the staff implement them. She also spoke up to the medical staff to advocate for the type of birth we wanted. I especially loved our postpartum visit, where we could talk about the birth in a way we couldn’t do with anyone else.
