Tessera's story...

We decided to hire a doula in the last month of our pregnancy and we are so glad we did because Shannon was so knowledgeable about birth and experienced with the staff at the Corvallis Hospital. My ultimate goal with my trial of labor after my last c-section was to give it my all before it had to come to a c-section again.


Even though I did end up having a c-section again with my 10.8 lb baby boy, Shannon talked me through the 32 hours that I was being induced, since I never fully went into labor even tough I was over 42 weeks. She encouraged me  and enabled me to make decisions that supported my goal of laboring as long and as naturally as possible, so that I would have no regrets or feel like I was pressured into anything by Hospital staff.
