I cannot say enough to express my gratitude for the love and support from working with Chelsea and Kayla. I knew I wanted to have a natural labor and OmMama doulas came highly recommended to me from a friend who had used them for her birth experience. From the moment I met them I felt extremely comfortable. Their knowledge and compassion for what they do is undeniable. Labor for me is a vulnerable, intimate and personal experience and Kayla was with me during my labor and made me feel like she was someone I knew my whole life. I felt extremely safe and confident in her and her presence helped me to relax and stay focused to fulfill my birth plan. She was my voice and kept the mood relaxed and calm. When we arrived at the hospital I was ready to deliver our bundle of joy, I could not have been more prepared. All the staff at the hospital were amazed at how “fast” our little guy came into the world. I was prepared to be flexible because sometimes things don’t always go as planned but we were so blessed that they did. If you are thinking about hiring a doula for your birth experience, don’t hesitate. As a first time mom it was scary to think about labor and delivery but there was nothing scary about working with Chelsea and Kayla, I never felt more prepared and wouldn’t want another pregnancy/delivery without them.
