Client Testimonial

When faced with some unwanted interventions and desiring to have a birth as natural as possible in a hospital setting I decided to contact Amanda knowing I’d need an advocate and extra support for my husband and me. Amanda was indeed these things and so much more as she helped me identify my true fears regarding birth allowing me to go into this beautiful experience strong and ready to partner with God to bring life into this world. My birth was everything I hoped for and she played a vital role in this outcome.
