Amazing Before, During & After

I knew from the very beginning that I wanted Lisa to be my doula. I had the opportunity to talk to her through one of her volunteer positions and pretty much had my mind made up but decided to do the interview process anyway so that my husband could get a feel for her and so we could meet her doula partner Cathy. Honestly I was a little nervous at the idea of someone other than Lisa being there but the Whatadoula team method worked out wonderfully, since I had a birth that lasted three days they ended up taking shifts and it was great because we were always with support even when someone needed to rest. 

They were amazing before during and after my birth. I had horrible back labor, eventually transferred to a hospital and ended up with a C-section after being in labor for three days. I have no idea what we would have done without Lisa and Cathy. They took excellent care of both me and my husband and helped us stay sane through a lengthly ordeal. Lisa's follow up support in the hospital was also amazingly helpful as our nursing staff was a bit hit or miss help wise. I would highly recommend them as doulas to anyone, I felt that having them as doulas was essential to the successful birth of my son.
