I never really knew what a doula did before I became pregnant. I heard the word on a TV show, and shortly after I started researching and interviewing doulas. After meeting with Carol Anne and Sarah, my husband and I agreed they were the ones for us. Based on their personality, breadth of experience and services we felt that these ladies would be best suited to help me through my journey. The HypnoBirthing class taught me that the female body is designed to birth and that helped relieve me of my fears. I learned various techniques and ways to keep calm, breathe properly and keep focused. Both my husband and I learned a lot and I loved how it was evidence based, up-to-date and fun.
My biggest fear that led me to hire a doula was the birth, and the pain associated with it.
Carol Anne was a reassuring presence in the time of transition. She kept me calm through the entire birth and helped guide my husband through massage and counter pressure techniques during my contractions.
I honestly believe that if Carol Anne was not in the room with me, I would not have had the calm, natural birth that I was hoping for. Her guidance and support helped me welcome my baby in a way that is rarely talked about.
Hiring Lifetime of Love Doula Services was the best money we have spent. My husband and I are forever grateful for meeting such caring women who have a true passion for guiding individuals into parenthood.
