"Childbirth is power in its purest and most natural form--it is wild and uncontrollable and takes us on a journey of surrender. Birth is about so much more than babies being born. It is about a mother finding her inner strength at her most vulnerable and powerful moment, which begins her unique and lifelong journey of mothering that child." - Brianna Z. Kauer

"Ana was my doula for my son's birth on July 2nd. There are so many reasons I am grateful that she was my doula. For starters, she is extremely dedicated and generous with her time. She also has a very peaceful and kind aura. When I first met her, I felt like she was the one. I felt comfortable with her. She was very easy to talk to and had a genuine passion for her work. When I asked her questions about birth, she proved to be very knowledgeable. Her commitment to natural birth aligned with mine. Throughout my pregnancy, Ana supplied me with a ton of great resources. When my plans for a natural birth had to be replaced with induction ones, she was very supportive and quickly looked for resources that would help make my needed induction as natural as possible. She even went to a prenatal visit with me.
During my labor, she came prepared with essential oils, the TENS unit and honey sticks, soft lighting, music...things that helped make the hospital more home-like. I really appreciated her emotional support during my labor. She was encouraging with her words and cared for me in ways that neither the nurses nor my husband could. Having her there was a blessing. I looked to her for reassurance on the many decisions I had to make during my somewhat complicated labor. Consulting with her was very helpful and reassuring. She was also great at talking to my nurses, making helpful suggestions and guiding me to ask questions. She stuck with me my entire labor which was overnight and well into midnight the next day!" - Natasha
