love notes from clients + students
"My husband and I sought out a doula for our second birth because our first baby was born via emergency c-section. There were so many doulas to choose from, but Chanté’s sweet and gentle spirit made her the obvious choice. Just from meeting with her a few times, my husband and I were both confident that she could provide the labor and birth support that we needed. We were so sad that we didn’t get to use her after our second baby was born 3 weeks early via another c-section. Even though the birth didn’t go as planed (does it ever?), I had so much peace about going into labor knowing that she would be there to support my husband and I. " A.C. + J. Reed
"Chanté was a blessing to me when I gave birth to my son. She helped me to understand my options and even came to support me for two days while I recovered in the hospital. She helped me with initial breastfeeding and even answered all of my newborn questions for weeks afterwards." ~ first time mom
"Chanté helps women to have the birth experience that they want as opposed to the one the doctors may try to force on them. She is an advocate for the mother, father, and baby. Her concern is helping them to have a positive birth and doing what is necessary to make that happen. I am very appreciative that Chanté was able to help us have the birth experience that we so desperately wanted. It was an amazing experience and one neither my husband or myself will never forget. We are truly blessed to have had the birth team that we had between Chanté and Womankind. God definitely heard our desperate pleas for a VBAC and He answered our prayers. Chanté was used as part of God’s plan to help us in having the birth experience that we so desperately wanted.” ~ Samantha & Joe T.
"I don't know what my husband and I would have done without Chanté by our side! She helped both of us remain calm when my birth started to seem shaky. She assured my husband everything was fine and helped me to regain focus and birth my baby the way I wanted. I am so glad she was there to give my husband suggestions to help me! ~ S. Johnson
"I was in labor for 36 hours and pushed for 6. I wasn't planning on getting an epidural, but I don't feel bad about getting one. I wasn't pressured into it by anyone. I felt empowered because Michael and I were able to make an informed decision. I went into my birthing time with a bit of nerves, but we felt well educated and equipped to communicate our needs and wishes. I would not have felt that way without taking the EBB class! Thank you again!" ~ Jodi M.
