Thank you SO much for all of your help. I couldn't have done it without you. It was such a blessing to have you here.
If you are pregnant or planning on getting pregnant soon I would strongly recommend that you consider hiring a doula to really make your pregnancy less stressful and offer you more support and education! Specifically my dear sweet friend Amy. I wrote a long review but I truly cannot gush enough about how magnificent it was to have her along for the ride. She was supportive and caring throughout my pregnancy and helped me stay calm (as calm as I can be under such stress) during my lengthy hospital stay and labor. Love this girl and how she is chasing her dream!
We really appreciated your calm presences and encouragement!
Amy was such an amazing piece of our birth story. From the moment we met her, we knew her knowledge, experience, training, and calming presence were going to perfectly compliment our needs for our child's birth. Amy was extremely responsive, prompt and direct with her communication, which helped ease this anxious mama's mind when I had questions or needed guidance. She made us feel empowered and helped support and educate BOTH my husband and I through the entire process in pre-labor, labor and postpartum. During our labor, Amy's ability to help me regulate, focus on my breathing, and remain calm helped my body to relax and bring our baby into the world safely. Her hands-on expertise with techniques such as counter pressure, massage, and recommendations for positioning also helped me to feel physically more comfortable without need for additional medical intervention, which was my hopes for delivery. We cannot say enough nice things about our experience with Amy, and will definitely use her again for any future pregnancies/ deliveries we hope to have!
While taking prenatal classes and reading books on pregnancy and labor was helpful, nothing helped me as much as having Amy by my side. As my doula, Amy helped me stay focused and strong throughout my entire labor. From the moment she walked in I felt comforted and cared for--and most importantly like I was not alone. I cannot recommend Amy enough. She was absolutely instrumental in helping us bring our son into the world.
Amy, I just want to tell you a million and one thank you's. You were of help in every way and I can't thank you enough for that. You did the most for me. I can't wait to see you again and for you to come see baby. I would recommend you to any labor and delivery! Hands down. You are awesome. Keep up the awesome work mama.
Having you beside me and my husband was the best choice we made for the birth of our baby girl. Keeping our eyes on the prize and providing guidance when we didn't know what to do next was incredibly helpful. You really allowed us to be mindful and present- thank you so much for all your support! For any Mama thinking about having a doula, it is so amazing having another person on your team and Amy was the perfect gal for us.
It was so Great to have you with us Amy, Thank you.
Amy is awesome. From her pre-birth visits to her postpartum ones, she makes every encounter enjoyable and incredibly useful. Amy kept up a great line of communication with me throughout our time working together by texting me encouraging messages and checking in on how I was doing. She is very knowledgeable and caring and used these skills to help make my birthing experience as easy and positive as possible. I appreciated the tips Amy had both before the baby came and while I was in labor, to help prepare my body and make the contractions more bareable. She is open to whatever your birthing choices are and does everything she can to support you and your support person (in my case, my husband) through this challenging and wonderful time. Overall, Amy is a kick-butt doula and someone I now consider a friend.
Amy was amazing and full of ideas and suggestions. She never was fazed or discouraged and she helped me stay focused and was... basically superhuman.
My first birth was very traumatic; I even showed signs of post traumatic stress following the experience. I was hesitant to get pregnant again and go through the process all over. After deciding we did want to have another baby I knew I really needed some additional support, mentally and physically, as well as more information on ways to improve my birthing experience this time around. Both my pregnancies were high risk due to pre-existing medical conditions so there were lots of complications and the potential for even more. My spouse and I agreed to hire Amy as our Doula. Amy was with me throughout my pregnancy to dig deeper into my concerns and thoroughly educate me on the path ahead. Amy continuously checked on me and reminded me of upcoming tasks, all the while encouraging me to relax and teaching me some mindfulness techniques to go along with some yoga stretches for my sore hips. Amy’s visits reassured me that this birth would not be as traumatic and during this time we explored options to improve my experience. We made a birth plan and talked about the different possibilities, good and bad, of what could happen and how I wanted them handled if they were to come to fruition. I felt at ease knowing that my wishes would be respected in case the unthinkable happened. Amy was non-judgmental about my inquiries and entertained even my most unique requests. When I was admitted to the hospital for induction at 36 weeks Amy was attentive and helpful. I was in the hospital for four days during which time she stopped in as I requested and in anticipation for the arrival of my son. Amy coached me through my epidural and continued to give me words of encouragement with my preferences in mind (I didn’t want to hear things like, “You can do this!” I know I can do it, I did it before and at this point I have no choice but to do it!) Twice during my grueling four days in the hospital, including the most painful portion of my contractions on the night prior to my sons birth, Amy guided me to sleep with a mindfulness exercise paired with a gentle massage. With her assistance I was able to get some well needed rest before I entered the final stage of labor. Amy was also helpful to my family by helping in any way she could. She was a strong advocate for me and the baby when I was too weak or incapacitated to speak for myself. You truly never know how much help an extra set of hands can be until you see the results of their aid. I am so thankful that we had Amy Lynn as our Doula which I know truly made my pregnancy and birthing experience as joyful and smooth as it could be. There is compassion to Amy’s service that is unparalleled in my experience, further proving she was made to Doula.
This is what you were meant to do. It is your soul's purpose.
Thank you Amy! I love you! And thank you for the pictures, they make my heart burst! So special. I can't thank you enough!
I just wanted to mention that it was obvious that you impacted my patient during her stay. My patient was so appreciative of you and lit up when you entered the room to say hi and check in :) Just wanted to reach out and let you know what you are doing is so important and I know it is making a difference in these patients' lives. And you are awesome! Keep it up! (RN)
I just wanted to say how much I appreciated you, and that I couldn't have done it without you. You were such a Joy!
Thank you for being with us and for reminding me how to be a better support person for [my wife]. You reminded me when and how to massage her, when to cheer her up, when to play her special music, and what to say to keep her motivated. Thank you!
You should train other doulas! Thank you! You were great!
My partner and I truly appreciated the confidence & support Amy provided as a doula for the birth of our son. Birth is intense and having her there was awesome.
Amy had an amazing presence in the labor room without being overbearing. She read the mother and suggested helpful techniques that helped this birth be as easy and safe as it was. I would work with her any day!
You were THE BOMB! Thank you.
Amy was an integral part of my wife and I’s pregnancy and labor. From a husbands perspective, I can say we could not have done it without her. She took the time to meet with us multiple times to educate us on exercises and preparation beforehand, and was an excellent source of strength and knowledge for us throughout labor and delivery. Her recommendations and advocacy for my wife during that intense time helped her focus, find relief, and feel supported in every way. Can’t recommend her services enough, and my wife and I will continue to refer her to friends and family.
Having Amy as our doula was an absolute blessing. From the moment we met her and all throughout our time together, her energy was so healing and optimistic. She normalized fears and shared her knowledge openly, always without judgement. We felt at home with her. One of the most memorable prenatal visits was when she took us step by step through the birthing process. She demonstrated and explained birth from the beginning to the end with different scenarios and answered our questions along the way. It was eye-opening and I learned a lot from it, (and I’m a pediatric RN)! There were many things I didn’t know that Amy shed light on. She was great. And when it came to labor and delivery, Amy was there for us and supported us with whatever we needed. She let my fiancé and I guide with what we wanted and would make suggestions so we could choose what felt best. I am convinced that Amy’s suggestion to do squats on our walk helped to quicken my labor, and I delivered our baby only a few hours later. I could go on, but the last thing I want to highlight is the fact that Amy captured pictures throughout labor and delivery, and it is just so incredible to have them. Amy was a wonderful birthing partner and advocate, and we will forever be grateful for her support!
Amy is the best doula I could have ever asked for she is amazing very helpful and knowledgeable. I had issues with an obgyn when I was in delivery with my son who is now almost 2 yrs old and a friend referred me to Everyday Miracles and I was lucky enough to be placed with Amy. I simply explained to her the bad experience I had and how frustrating it was with what I went through and didn't want that to happen again with this pregnancy and she was able to help me out and made things a whole lot better. I just had my baby on Friday she did such an amazing job and I'm so glad she was able to be there for me to comfort me etc it was well worth it!! I highly recommend Amy to be your doula!!
