Kind Words - Eliza


Birth January 2011

Jodi is an incredibly gifted doula. She attended the birth of my second baby at Maine Medical Center. She was wonderful. She supported me through all the most difficult parts of labor. She intuitively knew exactly what I needed and when. She was able to provide me just the right amount of support that I needed. I did not have a doula at my first birth, so I know what a world of difference it made having her there, especially as far as pain management goes. Jodi was both professional and warm in all my interactions with her before, during and after the birth. She was excellent at politely handling unwanted hospital interferences, and worked beautifully with the doctors and nurses on staff. I had a beautiful birth, and I can honestly say that I couldn't have done any of it without Jodi.
