After experiencing an unplanned cesarean section with my first child, I knew that I wanted my next experience in labor and delivery to be different. When I became pregnant with my second, I reached out to Renee immediately. I was emphatic about surrounding myself with as many supportive people as possible, so that I could reach my desired goal: to VBAC.
Renee’s knowledge of the birthing process, coupled with her unwavering support of my birth plan made a world of difference from the very beginning of my pregnancy! Every step of the way, Renee was there to reassure me of my strength and remind me of my goal.
Throughout labor, Renee was there to make sure I was as comfortable as possible. She distracted me when I needed distracting, fed me when I needed fuel, massaged my back through the pain, and advocated on my behalf when it came to the hospital staff. I never felt overwhelmed, unheard or alone.
Not only did Renee help to make my second birth experience everything I hoped for, she also took pressure off of my husband. This allowed him to experience labor without the anxiety of having to protect me, and that made HIS experience a better one as well. I can’t say enough wonderful things about the woman and professional that Renee is; every woman should be lucky enough to have such support through birth.
