As we were expecting our first baby there was a lot of anxiety of the unknown. How will it go? Will I be able to do it? Will may baby be ok?… It just seamed like a good idea to have someone by our side who has been through the process countless times, someone to guide as and give us support.
During the birth you kept me calm and reassured me that whatever is happening is ok, that all the choices I’m making are the right ones. In a birth that seamed endless you kept me focused on the end result. You intuitively felt when I needed a back massage and you knew when I needed some distance. You stayed by our sides till the end.When talking about the birth we always stress that the decision to go for a doula was the best decision we made around the birth. Nothing went according to the birth plan but you gave us strength and encouragement to do what was necessary to get the baby out safe and sound.
You were so worth the investment which gave me peace of mind and support. No matter what happened, I knew that you would be there to help me. My other half isn’t always good in medical situations, so I wasn’t sure how he would be during the birth.
I also knew that a lot could happen during labour that could result in change of midwife, for example. I just wanted to know that there would be one person who would keep it together and be the red thread throughout the whole process. That peace of mind is just what I needed to not stress out or worry. I figured even if all hell broke lose, you’d have your act together 😉
