I am so glad I hired Cynthya and could not have been happier with her service. She was a tremendous help before, during and after delivery of our first child. Her wealth of knowledge and passion for her profession made it a pleasure interacting with her. She was very easy to get a hold of whenever I had questions in regards to my pregnancy or upcoming delivery.
I delivered my son via water birth at North Fulton Regional Hospital and Cynthya played a huge role in helping us to achieve the birth I had envisioned. She was by my side the entire time, gave me positive energy and reassurance to succeed in my desire for an unmedicated birth. She helped me to visualize the “finish line” and set milestones throughout the whole process. I was able to put my faith in her hands and follow her guidance as it relates to changing positions, food/fluid intake and progress. It made me feel at ease knowing that she was there to help me make the right decisions and move things along. In addition, she was a great help for my husband to give him guidance in how to best support me. I am so glad that we got to share this incredible adventure with her. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a doula.
My husband was not interested in attending a multi-week childbirth class, so we hired Alice for a private in-home class in preparation for my delivery. I was a little skeptical whether a 3.5 hour session could sufficiently prepare me for delivery, but Alice exceeded my expectations. My husband and I very much enjoyed the class and felt she covered everything we needed to know for our special day. I felt well prepared and empowered for the delivery.
