“My first birth was very traumatic and resulted in an unplanned c-section. I was determined to have a doula to support me with a vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) for my second child.
Although I was late in my pregnancy for hiring Midwest Doulas, they were a life saver. I loved that there was a team of doulas that got to know me, so that whichever one ended up at the birth, we would know one another. Plus, they were very knowledgeable and able to inform and reassure me during my pregnancy and labor.
My doula kept me moving and worked hard to help me accomplish my goals. Although I ended up with an emergency c-section, I know I only got as far as I did because I had a birth doula present. In addition, she was the most amazing advocate for me during the surgery when my husband needed to be with our newborn daughter.
I highly recommend Midwest Doulas for their vast knowledge in pregnancy comforts, labor prep, labor, baby positioning, and cesareans and VBAC birth, in addition to their drive to continually educate themselves and other women, their extremely personable team, and their professionalism.”
