What can you say about Åsa, other than she is incredible? Coming from a first time father (and mother) I really didn’t know what to expect, or what I was doing. I knew the basics, contractions, water will break, I will get yelled at for doing nothing and oh, my wife will be in pain; but at the end of all of this, there will be a baby. How much could a Doula really help? Well let me just tell you, I would NEVER have another baby without one.
We had a fairly long labor (26.5hrs), my wife had a great deal of back pain due to a sub optimal position of the child. Åsa had all sorts of tricks in her bag to help the baby turn, and for counter pressure pain relief. She was with us for every minute of the labor. (more…)

I can’t say enough about what a wonderful and caring advocate and friend Åsa is to her clients.

When I was still pregnant past my due date, she called to check on my physical and emotional well-being and just let me vent. It was so therapeutic! (more…)
