Simply put, my biggest fear or worry about participating in childbirth is not being as inceptive or susceptive with particular medical procedures that have changed dramatically since my first child, nearly 20 years ago. So when my spouse suggested utilizing an experienced doula, we put forth serious effort in finding the perfect fit for our needs. That perfect fit for us, Brittney Brownell. She not only sat down with us and worked through our medical concerns but she took the time to educate us on the labor process and introduced techniques to aid with pain while at the hospital. I think the most unexpected perk of having a doula is the peace of mind that there is at least one more person on our team who supports and enforces our family’s medical plans.
For anyone looking for a doula; start with Brittney. Her knowledge will leave you feeling like you have nursing experience. You will be ready.
