Nate, father Cameron is very supportive to her clients, both mother and father. She is unquestionably committed to the health of mother and child. She is dedicated to diplomacy. She provides excellent education about the birth process. Most of all, she performs all her duties with a caring, gentle attitude. I reccomend her doula services to any who are expecting the blessing of a child.
Jess, mother Cameron was the best thing to happen to us during this first pregnancy (besides the baby at the end of course!). She is extremely knowledgeable about pregnancy and childbirth. She answered all of our questions and directed us to resources (books, videos, and classes). She introduced us to the Bradley Method classes which were instrumental in educating us about pregnancy and natural childbirth. During labor and delivery, she was calm and encouraging. She remembered small things to make me more comfortable (chapstick, hair ties, water, etc). She also helped me breath and push more efficiently. I don't think my pregnancy and birth would have been the wonderful experience it was without her. My experience with Cameron showed me how helpful a doula can be, and I will never go through labor and delivery without one!
Mike, father As first time parents, we had read all of the books, taken all of the classes, and watched all of the videos we could to prepare ourselves for the intensity of a natural child birth. But absolutely nothing proved more valuable than having Cam with us at the birth. She was calm, incredibly easy to work with, and most importantly extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Not only was she an amazing help for my wife, but she was also a great coach for me as a first time dad. It was the little things, like getting me water and snacks every so often (dads need to drink and eat, too), or reminding me to stretch my back and legs so I didn’t pass out from standing up for hours on end. Cam always seemed to have the big picture of what was going on and always seemed to know exactly what was needed to make the situation more comfortable for both mom and dad. She even went out to the store afterwards to pick up food for my starving wife, and snapped some incredible pictures of our new family! Cam was without doubt the “it” factor that made all the difference in our successful natural birth. I can’t say enough about our fantastic experience with Cam!
Colette, mother "Having Cameron as my doula was essential in reaching my goal of natural childbirth. Especially since this was my first baby I had no idea how incredibly difficult it would be to not only have this baby, but to do it drug free. Having Cameron there to help with positions and techniques that would help with the pain, but also to help me be more efficient in labor was extremely helpful. I don’t know that I could’ve done it without her. After returning home from the hospital, Cameron was so helpful as we made the transition into parenthood. She was very patient with our questions, and her knowledge and experience served us extremely well. "
Aaron, father "My wife and I felt very overwhelmed at the thought of labor and all that it would entail; hiring Cameron Lawracy to be our doula was the best decision we could have made. She was extremely helpful before the birth in helping us prepare and educate ourselves on the process, and in overcoming our fears and worries surrounding the pregnancy. The first time we sat down with her it was readily obvious she has read countless books on childbirth, and that she is passionate about it as well. On the night my wife went into labor, I felt like a huge weight had been taken off my shoulders when Cameron walked in to help. Having Cameron go with us to the hospital was so helpful because she was able to support my wife while I was driving, and then again while I was getting her checked into the hospital. At times that night when I struggled to help my wife relax, Cameron seemed to know the right thing to say or do to help her stay calm. It would have been so stressful and overwhelming that night if Cameron hadn’t been with us, but with her help, my wife got much better support and all of us were more calm, which greatly contributed to my wife having a positive experience in the hospital and the ultimate result of a healthy, beautiful baby."
From a labor and delivery nurse: "[Cameron was] very personable, always kept a positive attitude with [the] patient and staff; supportive; constantly seeking out ways to help the patient! Great job!"
From an obstetrician: "Very supportive and pleasant. Active helper!"
