Dear Sarah and Carol Anne, thank you so much for your service.
At first we thought it was something of a luxury to hire a doula for the birth of our baby but after going through the experience, I believe it was a necessity.
I don’t know how we could have gotten through it without you both. You were both so supportive and kind, providing useful information and checking in on us regularly.
Carol Anne was there for me through each contraction – saying what I needed to hear and pressing on my hips to ease the pain. No judgement of me walking around like a zombie in adult underwear, or communication through moans rather than words. You sure chose a challenging profession but we are so grateful for your services. It really changed the experience from being scary and unbearably painful to manageable and feeling like we were safe.
