"Erinne is a phenomenal doula...The labor was totally unexpected to come the day and time it did and she totally rose up to the occasion in a matter of minutes while being fully prepared. They say that doulas are the mothers to the mothers and I can say that Erinne is a perfect example of that. If and when a second child are in the plans for us, we will definitely have Erinne on speed dial."
Erinne assisted me during the pregnancy and labor and delivery of my daughter. Her patience and calming presence kept me confident and focused throughout the process. After the birth I didn't want her to leave! I wanted Erinne to stay with my new family and guide us through the early days. I hope to call on Erinne [one day] for baby number two!
My doula journey started in November 2015. After watching a home birth video, I realized that I wanted to be involved with birth in some capacity. I wanted to support birthing people through one of the most important and life-changing moments of their lives and the lives of their families. Becoming a doula happened pretty organically after that. I started taking classes and attending births whenever I could. In May 2018, my husband Jim and I were lucky enough to welcome our beautiful daughter into the world. Having experienced a homebirth cesarean has only fueled my desire to support other families during this time. Although Jim and I did not get the birth we had hoped and tried for at home, we got the birth we needed to experience at the Vidone Birth Center. I believe everything happens for a reason, and I do believe my daughters birth will help me tremendously when supporting other families through the process. I have attended home, birth center, and hospital births. All births are unique and special no matter how and when those babes come out!
