Here is a sampling of what some of my clients, doctors, midwives, and nurses have said about me:
"I won't give birth without her." - Emily
"In my more than 20 years in Labor and Delivery, Teri is by far the best doula I've ever worked with." - L, R.N.
"[The Harmony Doula Group] is the best thing to ever happen to our hospital" - T, R.N.
"You're in great hands with Teri." - S., CNM
"Teri is welcome in my [delivery room] any time." - Dr. P, OB/GYN
"Teri is a fantastic doula. I am always happy to see her [at my hospital]." - J., R.N.
"My labor began on a Friday night, and my daughter did not arrive until Monday morning. Teri was with me for almost all 53 hours. Coaching me, supporting me and and basically making me feel safe. Aside from moral support, Teri helped me make sense of everything I was going through, physically... I *highly* recommend Teri to any expectant mom." - Jenn
"[Having a doula] was the best decision we ever made. Teri was very supportive through the entire labor. She never lessened her enthusiasm to help us. She was always energetic and coherent of what best relaxation techniques suited us... She was very helpful and at the same time gave my husband his space as far as him comforting me...I felt her positive energy is what got me through my long labor. It was her strength and confidence that gave me confidence to do the best I could in my labor... She kept me relaxed and confident in the capability of my body... She was soothing, comforting, loving, and caring... We recommend her to anyone that is considering a doula." - Evangelina (Note: Evangelina's planned homebirth and hospital transfer was documented in a photo slide show by KellyM Photography, available for viewing here.)
"[Teri] was an invaluable birthing coach. She was knowledgable, positive and supportive throughout my pregnancy and labor...She used a variety of natural techniques to relax me and ease my discomfort during contractions. She worked seamlessly with the hospital staff and was a terrific advocate for us....She helped my husband stay positive and confident... I have great confidence in her skills and abilities and give her my highest recommendation." - Suzy
"Teri was a great support and resource for both [my husband] and myself during labor. She was physical support when [my husband] was my emotional support. I knew, having been a natural birth mama too, that she would be nothing but encouraging of my desire for the same." - Katie (Note: Katie's birth journey was documented in a photo slide show by KellyM Photography and is available for viewing here.)
