Doula Emily's patient story 2
A patient shares her experience giving birth with Shantell by her side.
"Emily was so comforting and helpful. She had a lot of great links and resources that she tailored to our questions/ needs and emailed to us ahead of time. I had a C-section and honestly, because of that, I wasn’t sure whether we would really need her, but in the end, I was so glad she was there. Anytime my husband stepped away or if one of us wasn’t sure what was going on, she narrated, explained, and reassured. She was never in the way and spoke up right when we needed her to, throughout the process. She also took a lot of great pictures and sent them to us afterward. Overall, we were just so happy to have had her. She anticipated our needs every step of the way and made our experience so much better. I am sure she would have made a great labor coach for a vaginal delivery too."
