birth doula jodi long review

"I was referred by a friend --- you have to trust your friends, right? Even my husband says that he couldn't have imagined having to go through the whole birthing process without a doula.  I completely agree!

Stephanie was patient and knowledgeable when she helped create my birth plan, and she was the total hero in the hospital when my 28+ hour labor ended in a cesarean.  She kept my husband as calm as she could and was quick to remind us of our options. She totally went above and beyond."
