Bamboo Birth Doula Celebrates 3 years of Service and 50 Babies
Birth Doula helps pregnant women and their families experience empowering no-to-low intervention hospital births
Amber Cummer recently gave birth to her son, Graham, 3 months. “We knew it was going to be great,” she reflects on her birth with Matsushita at her side, “but had no idea the impact having a doula would have. When we enlisted her services, little did we know that we would be getting so much more than we bargained for! I knew I wanted a doula from the start of my pregnancy. I read all the books, did my research, had spoken to friends, and I was hoping a doula could help me give birth with no interventions. Well, my expectations were far exceeded! Matsushita helped shape the experience I was able to have during my pregnancy, labor, delivery and post-partum period. Her knowledge, expertise and gentle guidance gave us the tools we needed to make the best decisions for our family and I thank her for that. But the part I struggle even putting to words is what an impact her presence had during my labor and delivery. She was there for me in a way that no one could be. My labor and delivery was such an empowering experience and I know that her loving touch and calming presence is what got me through each contraction. While in labor she saw to it that my wishes and needs were met and even anticipated the needs I didn’t even know I had. Those peanut butter crackers post- delivery were the best snack I’d ever eaten! Having a doula present is a tool I would wish for every woman for their labor and delivery. However, Matsushita is more than just a doula, she is a gift. Because this is truly HER gift and every family should be so lucky to have a doula present for such a beautiful moment in their lives.”
