Brandie's assistance with our birth was a Godsend. Her support of our birth plan and adjustments throughout the labor process was essential to making the experience a beautiful moment in our lives. Her support became even more crucial when our son was readmitted at 5 days old for severe jaundice. She assisted with breast feeding advice and encouragement-a necessity for one freaked out first time mom. Thanks to her support, we have one happy healthy baby boy. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for doula services.--Megan
Brandie was a wonderful doula, and a very important addition to our birth team. She was so supportive, and did anything that we needed done. She was by my side the whole time, which was very comforting to me. And her support didn't end in the hospital, she continued to answer my frantic, first time mom 3 am texts until I felt secure in being a mom. Her focus throughout the whole labor process was on me and my son, and I felt very well taken care of in her hands. I will definitely want her at my next birth, and would suggest her to anyone who's pregnant!--Aly
Brandie was an amazing doula. She was there for me during the last weeks of my pregnancy and was a comfort to me when I needed it. I went in for a biophysical profile when I was 41 weeks and found out I had no amniotic fluid left. I needed to have another c-section. My hopes for a VBA2C were gone. I called my husband to let him know, but he was watching our other children, so he couldn't be with me until family could come. I called Brandie, and she left to be with me immediately. I had to go next door to the hospital to be monitored until I had the c-section. I would have been alone, crying and blaming myself for needing ANOTHER c-section, if it weren't for Brandie. She comforted me, massaged my arms and legs, using her wonderful aromatherapy "stuff", and even had mints for me. (Which was great, since I couldn't eat or drink anything.) The doctors tried to wait for me to have my c-section til my mom & sis got here, but they couldn't wait any longer. Brandie sat in the waiting room and made sure to watch for my mom and sister and explained everything to them. I love that she's also a nurse, so she understands both the medical stuff the doctors say, and can explain it to those of us without medical training. After the surgery, she waited with me until I was transferred out of recovery and into a regular room. Which, again, was great because by this time it was midnight, and my family had to leave. She helped carry personal belongings to the next room and was just a real comfort to me after having an EXTREMELY difficult surgery. It was also nice to know I could call her and talk after having him if I needed her. I didn't have a doula for my other 2 births, and having her this time, even though I ended up having a c-section, was totally worth the money. I would recommend Brandie to anyone!---Lori
