Alamo Area Birth Doula - Your Support During Labor
Orah’s water broke at 9:15PM.  Her doctor, told her to go to St Lukes immediately.  I joined her and husband, Ronen, there.   It was after 10PM when finally admitted.  We walked the halls, used the birthing ball, and kept moving to encourage progress.  About 2:30 contractions finally started to show signs of active labor.  Around 9:50AM pitocin was started to help her finish up her progress.  Orah was amazing through extreme exhaustion and birthed her beautiful baby girl, Ella Shoshana Hannah at 1:45PM. She sent me a note
                                         saying that although she had been so fearful of birth,
                                        she is “so grateful and feels so blessed that you were
                                        there for me. “
                                               No one was more blessed than me!!
Tiffany, an Army Veteran and the wife of Matt, a Combat Medical Army Veteran, was so proud of herself for deciding on and staying focused on a successful medication free induction at 42 weeks!  Her midwife, Christy, was amazing at assisting her 9 lb 4 oz baby's birth without any tears.  Tiffany announced that she had no pain tolerance, and didn't think she could make it with
                                        a pitocin induction - without meds.  But she did it, with the
                                       support of her husband, mother and doula, like a
                                        Champion!  We were all blessed!
Kathleen used her Hypnobabies CD continuously during her birthing time.  She was relaxed and calm for the first 5 1/2 hous of consistent surges-at her home!  As well as when we arrived at St Luke's Hospital just 2 1/2 hours before Laurie's birth.  It was a beautiful birth and extremely well timed!  She and her husband sent me a card which said: "...It meant so much to me to have someone who believed that I could and would have a natural birth.  It was that extra boost of confidence that I needed to be patient in waiting for my birthing time....I finally felt like I was in control of my birth rather than it just happening to me, with all that I've been
                                     through, I can't think of a better final birth to have...."  She
                                     was so thankful for her husband's and my support, but no
                                     doubt God was directing our steps!
                                           Psalm 139:13-14
For you formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother's womb.
I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well!
