As first time parents, we had no idea what to expect when it came to labor, delivery, and bringing a baby home. Shelly helped us prepare and get through the experience physically, mentally, and emotionally. She was a calming presence and provided a wealth of information both during our preparation and on the big day. If we have a second, we’ll definitely be calling her!
Shelly's presence during my labor was invaluable. Nothing went as planned, but no matter what curveballs came our way, she was calm and helpful, and her steady demeanor allowed us to stay positive too. She empowered me to make the decisions that were best for me and my baby. Not only did Shelly care for me, she also supported my husband, making sure he was able to be there for me whenever I needed him. I cannot imagine giving birth without her.
Shelly was integral to my pregnancy and birth journey. She helped me ready my body for birth through weekly prenatal yoga and then she supported me during my labor as my doula (I would not have been able to make it through unmedicated without her gifted touch!). She was a great source of support for my husband, as well. Shelly is so knowledgeable and has a very calming presence!
