Linda served as my doula for the birth of my son on March 15, 2013. While my initial plans were to have my baby naturally with no pain medication, things did not go as expected. My labor was very long and, in the end, resulted in a cesarean section. Linda was very attentive and completely there for me and my husband before, during, and after my labor. While I labored unmededicated, Linda helped me get through each contraction with physical support and positive affirmations. Once it was determined that I had no choice other than a cesarean, Linda helped me come to terms with this fact and reassured me. She was in the room with us during my surgery and her pictures were the first time I got to see my son! Since being home, Linda and I have kept in touch and she has been great in answering all my first time mom questions. I feel very fortunate to have had Linda as my doula and would definitely want to have her with me again!
