Courtney made a huge difference for us in the midst of a scary situation with many unknowns. I can look back at labor and delivery with such a sense of peace because of her. You will not regret hiring her!
Thanks to her, I was able to labor for 10 hours and push for 2 hours without an epidural. I had the VBAC like I wanted and the baby was big (10lb 7oz). And it was glorious. Courtney had such a nurturing presence and I just loved her sense of humor. She is an attentive, knowledgeable and confident doula. I was in good hands. Hoping to hire her again in the future.

She made it very personal, finding out what type of birth we wanted and how we envisioned her role as doula. She constantly engaged my husband during these meetings, ensuring that we were both preparing for one of the most exciting moments of our lives. Courtney provided us with great resources to research and read to help us further prepare. Courtney was there to walk through the options with us to know what was best for mama and baby. We could not have done an all-natural childbirth without Courtney. She was amazing in every way and truly made our experience what we hoped it would be! I would hire her again and again.
Once we were with Courtney, we took a big sigh of relief because we had an extra set of hands, she timed the contractions and helped us know when it was "time" to go in. Going through an unmedicated childbirth with her by our sides made her feel like part of our family. We are so glad she was a part of our son's birth and would highly recommend her to anyone!
I cannot say enough great things about Courtney. She has been an incredible support since day one! She was amazing at helping me understand what my desires for birth were, helping me structure my birth plan, and discussing pregnancy/labor/postpartum to help prepare me for what to expect. She had such a confidence in me to birth my baby that it helped to keep me confident. She was gentle and kind with her encouragement but strong and confident with her labor support. She truly helped me have such a successful labor.
