What did you most appreciate about working with Elizabeth?
I most appreciated her availability. I never had a hard time getting ahold of her and she would check in to see how things were going during my pregnancy. I appreciated that once labor had started, she was able to offer support even before we needed her to physically join us.
I appreciated having a postpartum visit with her as well, especially the time she took to reflect on my birth experience with me, filling in details I may have forgotten or not noticed.
My husband and I found Elizabeth to be a perfect fit, I liked that she was warm, diplomatic and respectful of my natural birth choices and my husband liked that she has a strong medical background to balance my crunchiness. In fact, he didn’t even want to have a doula, but after interviewing her, he simply said she “was fine”. That was before the birth. After the birth, he said she was wonderful and very helpful and he was so very glad that she was there to help us out! Elizabeth was an invaluable support during the birth of our first child and I would love to have her on future births!
