Baby Sebastiaan born at Vincent Pallotti Hosptial on 15-06-2016
Meeting a doula is a lot like meeting a potential friend for the first time — right away you know if this is a good fit, if this relationship will work.
My son was breech and although we tried various methods to turn him, he wouldn’t budge.
I remember driving home from my doctor’s appointment after the C-section had been booked and crying, upset that the VBAC I so badly wanted would most likely not happen.
Charlene was so supportive and helped me to see that try as we might to change the outcome, it is ultimately the baby that chooses its birth.
The answer was a resounding yes. The sense of calm and peace that I felt throughout my son’s birth day was due to Charlene’s presence before, during and after the birth.
I never thought that a C section could be a good experience. Charlene changed that for me and for that I am forever grateful.
