I hired Erin after our initial consultation, I knew she was right for us. I was an hour away from her but she still took me. I was going for a VBAC, and she was wonderful. If she didnt have the answer to a question, she'd find out. She offered to go to appts with me, and we even went to an ICAN meeting together. If i needed her she was there. She helped me learn about babywearing, cloth diapering, etc. She came over when I thought i was in labor and stayed the night with me. I ended up being induced, and she went with me to my pre op appointment, as my fiance was at work. She always eased my stress if I was scared about something. When it came time for my induction, even though she had been at a birth the night before, she came and stayed wit hme the whole time. She calmed me during labor, did whatever I needed, etc. massaged my back, heat. She helped empower me to make all the decisions when it came to my labor, and I never felt like I had no choices and I thank her for that, because I couldnt tell you how many times I asked her if it was ok to say no to something or ask for more time. She stayed until after baby was born and made sure I was ok, even helped dad with skin to skin. I will hire her for any other babies I may have, and highly recommend her.
