When Lou found out my partner and I were adopting she jumped at the opportunity to offer all the support she could. Knowing that she had already participated in several births and we were about to go though one ourselves, we were eager for the advice. We had little understanding of what women experience during pregnancy and felt unprepared in how to support our child’s birth mother emotionally and physically. Lou graciously stepped in to offer her guidance though the process. She gave us direct advice in the birthing process, options we had, labor positions, and pain management. Lou could describe what physical changes were happening to her body so
we could grasp what was happening and helped calm our nerves. We were grateful to have a voice of empathy through this experience. We felt support in the all decisions we made. The consultation we received from Lou helped us all better prepare for the birth of our beautiful daughter.
Thank you Lou!
