Christina remembering Amyra’s birth

I found Cindy through the Bend Yoga’s resources site and I am so glad to have found her. From the very beginning, she was very easy to work with and has the warmest voice. We had two prenatal appointments, both were very in-depth and she provided hands-on tips on how we might be able to improve my labor experience. Due to COVID, we had our meeting outdoor or with masks on while indoor. Cindy comes with deep knowledge and understanding about pregnancy and how our body functions, which instantly made me and my husband feel at ease. She also provided some helpful techniques to help expedite labor naturally with massages, movements, acupressure, etc. I believe that these additional steps definitely helped progress my labor faster. She was available at the hospital through a Zoom meeting and helped support my husband and guided him to be able to help me. Due to the support received prior to arriving at the hospital, we did not think that not having Cindy at the hospital was a huge disadvantage. 

My husband was not all in for hiring a doula at first, as he was not sure how it might be helpful during COVID times, since not more than 1 person was allowed at the hospital. After the experience, my husband believes that having Cindy made a huge difference in our labor going as smoothly as it did!
