I found Amber through a quick google search, she was the only Doula that we met with, but I didn't need to look any further after our first meeting with her. I really liked that Amber had experienced a c-section, birth in a hospital, and a home birth. She was perfect for me as a First Time Mom not knowing what was always happening to my body. She would meet with us but I could also text her with any questions for concerns I had during my pregnancy.
My birth story went nothing like I had thought it would, I wanted an unmedicated birth, my husband to catch the baby and cut the cord. We ended up with 18 hours unmedicated, an epidural and pictocin, and in the end a c-section. Amber was beside us every step of the way in those 30 hours from the moment my water broke to a few hours after she was born. She knew how much I had wanted to do it naturaly and she gave me all the tools and support to do it. We tried everything!
I was also drawn to Amber because she does placenta encapsulation, which was a life saver for me when all of the emotions and hormones hit a few days after my daughters birth and I didn't feel like myself. After one dose I was feeling like myself. Also the fact that she does post partum visits is huge, when you are transitioning from a family of two to three.
I would hire Amber in a heartbeat if we decide to grow our family. She is so knowledgeable, caring, supportive, and amazing at her job. You know when people have found there calling and that is how I felt when working with Amber.
