...I commented on the experience at some point saying that I felt like I was at a spa! Don’t get me wrong, those contractions are nothing to play with but our doula made me feel comfortable and she, my partner, and my best friend all worked together to make me feel so special and capable of such a feat. It was the most beautiful day of my life and I’m so glad that she was there to help me feel that way. The next day, the doctor that delivered our baby gave a very lengthy review of our doula herself. She was blown away by how easy she was to work with and just raved about her. A busy OBGYN took the time to speak so highly of her, saying that she worked so well with all of the staff, and also saying that she has had a lot of experience with other doulas. She loves what she does and it shines through!
