Gwen was absolutely amazing! This was my husband and I’s first child labor experience and we felt ready to take on the new journey. She guided us step by step with an well put together powerpoint, explaining emotion experiences we may have, procedures, medicine and so much more . Gwen took her time to make sure we didn't feel overwhelmed with information but made sure we understood that we had choices in the delivery room, we are in control of our labor. She also made it appointment to focus on our relationship as a couple before our daughter and after the birth of our daughter. She shared her own experience and insight and it was a wonder experience to have. Thank you again Gwen, we wouldn’t of had the knowledge, confidence and understanding with out you!
