When we were trying to find a doula to help us with the birth of our first child, we were looking for someone who had DONA certification and who was also certified in Hypnobirthing techniques. We needed someone to help us make sure that we were asking the right questions to ourselves and to our health care providers about the upcoming birth. Erin became an invaluable support during my pregnancy, birth of our baby Peter, and the tough days afterwards when the baby was home from the hospital. Her skill at listening attentively, keeping us organized, and following through on all tasks helped to alleviate our stress. Her calm and pleasant demeanor and extremely practical input made her a delight to work with. She came to understand what was important to us and was able to help create the environment that we needed at the hospital. She took the initiative to post some of my favorite empowering Bible verses on the wall in the delivery room, played the Hypnobirthing tapes for me to listen to and was a soothing and reassuring presence in the room. Without hesitation, we recommend Erin. What a great doula!
