"This was my first experience with a doula. Having had 2 children
previously, I can say that Enza provided a level of support that far
exceeded my expectations. Enza helped make the birth of my youngest
daughter(now 3 yrs old) a pleasant process without the aid of
medications." Jen P.
"The birth of my second baby was an emotional one-his daddy had been
deployed to Iraq just 3 days before- having a doula, Enza in particular,
was such a blessing. She was there to hold my hand and lead me through
the amazing day." Michele C.
"Enza was amazing!
She was so positive and supportive. She was with me through the whole
process! We were new to the area, my husband was away for military
training, and I needed someone I could call in the middle of the night.
She helped me meet new people in the community. She was with me at the
hospital while my husband drove up. Her massage eased my pain. There
were complications during the birth; my husband had trouble with the
whole situation and couldn't stay at the hospital. Enza stayed with me
while I went to see Connor in the NICU and hung out until I got settled
in my room. She came to visit me after the birth and we are still in
touch now!" Peggy M.
"Without Enza's assistance, we never would have made it through labor (I
know my husband would've been passed out on the floor!). She truly met
emotionally, spiritual, and certainly physical needs. She was
invaluable!" Libby B.
"I immediately felt comfortable with Enza when I met her, almost as if
she were a long-time friend or family member. I know that without Enza I
would not have had the confidence to labor at home for as long as I did
and give birth without medication, which was my desire. There was a
moment where I started to panic; Enza put her hands on my shoulders,
looked me in the eye, and said "Breathe!" and started taking deep
breaths with me. Immediately, I calmed down and the pain subsided! My
motto for her is, "Enza: Don't give birth without her!" Gina C.L
"Enza helped my husband and I feel more at ease about labor. It made a
difference to know that someone experienced would be there to help us
understand better what was going on along the way!" Karen K.
"Enza was a key person in our
natural birth plan. She brought with her a sense of spiritual, emotional and
physical calmness and encouragement. She was also phenomenal in helping my
husband know when and how to comfort me and encourage me. We cannot speak more
highly of her. We are looking forward to utilizing her services again in the
coming years with any future babies." Kate M.
truly cares about her clients and it is evident in the care and support
she provides before, during and after labor. Enza has a way of making
you feel as though you have known her forever! From our first meeting I
could sense her warmth, compassion and dedication as a doula. I look
forward to her support during future deliveries and I highly recommend
her services to anyone considering natural childbirth." Nicole V.
"Enza and I hit it off right from the start. Her bubbly, warm and
professional personality was magnetic! She has a laugh that is
infectious too! I knew instantly that she was the one I needed to help
me thru an all natural VBAC delivery." Heather B.
"We are so incredibly thankful that we found Enza and chose to have her
at the births of our babies (#3 and #4). After 2 deliveries with
epidurals, I met some wonderful people who educated me regarding the
natural birthing process. After reading, watching documentaries, and
talking with others, I knew that I would never elect to have drugs
during the birthing process again. My husband and I decided to hire a
doula and we ended up with Enza! Even though Enza credits us with all
the hard work, we know that we can credit her with our successful
drug-free, tub labored deliveries. Enza provided comfort, support, and
guidance to both my husband and I. Enza is all about supporting the
Mommy - that means that if Mommy feels she needs pain medications, Enza
supports that. For us, it was about not getting pain medications, and
allowing birth to progress naturally - Enza supported us through our
journey. Enza has become a friend. We continue to see her as a
fantastic resource as well. Thank you Enza!" Rebekah M.
"Enza helped me deliver our first baby, Elena, on August 30, 2011. We
found her through a friend, and I was pretty diligent about checking
references. After getting numerous responses from other moms that had
nothing but glowing, wonderful things to say about Enza, I felt
confident that she would do a great job. I was totally right. From the
start of my labor (which lasted 3 full days), Enza was responsive,
helpful, and ready to come help whenever and however long I was ready.
She coached me through delivery, and was such a strong and helpful
presence in the process. After Elena was born, Enza stayed as long as we
wanted her to, and came back the following day to check in. I had some
problems with engorgement after my milk came in several days later, and
Enza came to the house to help me through my "mommy meltdown." We would
truly have been lost without her. I cannot praise her work highly
enough. She is knowledgeable, responsible, warm, kind, and responsive.
She is confident and knows what she's doing, even under pressure. I wish
she was still in the Maryland area so that she could help us when we
have another baby!" Lianne A.
"Her advice was completely
invaluable! She helped me make the decision on when to allow the doctor to
break my water, she guided me on how to push the most effective way possible,
and the position to be in at each stage of labor. Even my doctors and nurses
were impressed by how knowledgeable, professional and skilled she was in the
delivery room!" Cheryl W.
"Enza was absolutely wonderful to work with. My labor and delivery went
exactly as I wanted it. I was able to have a natural birth and I don't
think I could have done it without Enza's help. She worked really well
with the hospital staff and helped to make my husband feel more
comfortable. I got to go in the hot tub, was given Popsicles and even
ice cream! She stayed with me the whole time and coached me through the
contractions. It was incredibly helpful to have her there!" Elena K.
"....when it was “time”, she was ready at the hospital entrance and helped me
through contractions in the elevator! She was always in the right
spot, was very prepared with words, warm hands and with her doula tools
and knew when to take a step back and let the nurses and/or my husband
assist me. She was an advocate for me, but I felt in control and my
husband was thankful to have her there. Even the hospital staff was
impressed and said they wished they saw more doulas like her and asked
her several times to leave her card. She stayed for a bit after
delivery, but then gave us time as a family and checked in with us
afterwards. She is both professional and personal, which must be a hard
balance to obtain...." Amy N.
"Within that short meeting, Dan and I were convinced that we wanted
her to be part of the birth. It wasn't uncomfortable at all to have her
enter in to something so vulnerable and personal with such little time
in getting to know one another. Enza is very calming and warm and it
was natural - like we had known her for years.
During the birth I cannot emphasize enough what a huge difference
it made having her present with us. She was able to help Dan provide
support, in a way where the pressure was off of him to know exactly what
to do. Enza also frequently supplied the verbal encouragement I needed
to continue through 15 hours of a natural, non-medicated labor and
delivery!" Anna B.
