♥ As first time parents, my husband and I were venturing into unknown territory with what to expect in labor. Connie eased our anxiety from the very beginning by keeping both of us so unbelievably calm and confident. She is so gentle and steadfast in her approach, making my entire labor process surprisingly relaxed. Even the nurses commented on how peaceful it felt in our labor room. Her commitment to me was unwavering from start to finish, and I honestly don’t know how I would have made it through labor without her. Ashly Thompson, Windsor, CA
♥ The support is endless. Nobody should go through a birth without Connie by their side. There are so many possibilities during a birth, and Connie has experienced most of them. People have coaches and mentors in all other areas of life, so why would giving birth be any different? Connie is a must have! Nick Thompson, Windsor, CA
♥ Connie’s strength and confidence as a doula are invaluable in the birthing experience. Through all the craziness and surprises of birth, she felt as steady as a rock and made me feel completely safe and secure. She also seemed to have an amazing gift of being able to know exactly when I needed her and her support, as well as when to step back and let me and my husband work through the moment on our own. I recommend Connie to anyone looking for their “rock” in the birthing experience. Kaitlyn Mitchell, Sonoma, CA
♥ We were referred to Connie by a health educator at Kaiser who was very impressed with her. After recently working with her for the birth of our daughter, my husband and I cannot speakly highly enough of Connie. From our first interaction with her she understood what kind of birth experience we hoped to have and was very supportive of our choices. She provided us with helpful resources and guidance during my pregnancy, and when some challenging moments arose she was an invaluable support, listening to our concerns and worries with warmth and compassion and giving us tools and advice so that we could be empowered to make the right decisions for us. Connie is prompt in her communication, calm, confident, warm, and has a great sense of humor, and most of all she is very knowledgeable and competent. We are so grateful to her for the support she provided us before, during, and after Hazel’s birth, and we highly recommend Connie to families looking for a doula to support them on the beginning of this amazing journey.

♥ My husband and I could not imagine the birth of our daughter without Connie’s help. She was there with unconditional support throughout my entire labor. I had back labor and was in excruciating pain. Connie came to the hospital with a plethora of message tools and trinkets to help with pain management. It was important to me to have a natural labor and Connie helped me stick to this plan with her expertise, and compassion for what I was going through. Since it was our first child, it was invaluable to have an expert advocate in the room, who could foresee challenges and brainstorm solutions with me and my husband. I have an amazing birth story, even with all the pain I felt, because of the great team I had in the room with me. I will definitely hire Connie again for the birth of my next child.

♥ Connie was instrumental in making me feel safe and confident. I truly believe I couldn’t have had a VBAC without her. It was definitely a 2-person (minimum) support job and having someone as experienced as Connie was critical. My husband and I both agree that her personality and calmness were what we needed.
