It is the greatest privilege to be invited into someone’s birth process. Below are some kind words from the students and client’s Samantha was lucky enough to serve.
There are many reasons my husband and I would recommend Samantha for doula services. On our first meeting, she was incredibly present and connected, immediatly putting us at ease as first time parents with no birthing experience. She is thoughtful and informed, but most astonishingly, Samantha possesses that rare genuine and loving air of confidence that makes a caregiver most effective.
When she came over during my labor, the entire energy in the apartment shifted. She showed a natural intuition in how to keep me active working through my contractions. Her presence is gentle, unnassuming, but assured and secure. She kept my husband very involved and I successfully labored at home with them for four hours, and was already 8 cm dilated by the time we moved to the birthing center.
My delivery was complicated, a last minute breech and hospital transfer. Samantha’s guidance during my active labor certainly served me later, in the hospital, as I fought to naturally deliver my breech son, feet first. We were both healthy, and I was truly grateful for the confidence she had instilled in me, which played no small part in giving me the strength for such a delivery.During the post partum visit, it was clear that Samantha’s investment in her clients is spiritual for her as well, and that she truly cares about our new little family. My husband and I feel honored to have her among a small circle of people that truly experienced the birth of our boy.
