I wanted a doula out of excitement more than fear. I didn’t go into this pregnancy with a huge amount of fear. Labor always makes me a bit anxious, but I was excited about extra support.
It was helpful to have encouragement, kindness and support to make the decisions that were perfect for me in my individual journey and I appreciated the ability to fully connect with my husband during the process.
Hiring Mary Susan helps you focus inwardly on your journey. She helps you realize what you’re capable off and what will work best for you!
“Through all this, I was so glad to have a doula. I never had false labor with my first; I had contractions that started and never stopped, slowly intensifying over 40-some hours until I gave birth. This pregnancy had been so different, and I felt betrayed and let down by my body again and again. Mary Susan kept reminding me: Every contraction was preparing my body for labor. It might not be dilating my cervix, but it is all preparation to bring my baby into the world. Her support to trust and work with a body that I felt had failed me over and over throughout my pregnancy—when I felt weak; when I felt scared—was invaluable.”
