Scarlett was a guiding light for us during our pregnancy, birth and directly afterwards. Before our birth, Scarlett met with us a few times discussing our feelings on what we wanted, the process of birth, positions and coping techniques and working within the hospital system. We were extraordinarily grateful to have her support and guidance when I had to be induced for a health concern 3 weeks before our due date. For every intervention, Scarlett was there to talk us through what was happening and gave us comfort when things didn’t go as expected. She was a wonderful support for my husband who found that Scarlett was there for him just as much as she was there for me. We couldn’t imagine our birth without her and highly recommend Scarlett as a doula, confidant and teacher.
When I met Scarlett I was instantly struck by her easy-going nature and how it made me feel calm just to be around her. What more would you want during childbirth? Additionally, upon our first meeting Scarlett demonstrated her depth of knowledge and her ability to communicate with different personalities. My husband and I have very different approaches to stressful situations, and Scarlett was able to relate to and help us both process and prepare for the events ahead. My labor was fast and furious. Scarlett had prepared my husband and he was able to help me get through the initial stages. When she arrived, Scarlett took action immediately. Alongside my husband, she coached me through one of the most difficult processes I’d ever been through. After my little girl came into the world, Scarlett stood by us and helped us with our very first feeding. Later, her postpartum visits were always positive, reassuring and supportive times. I would recommend Scarlett to any future mom planning any type of birth experience. I’m so grateful I had her there during mine.

Questions & Answers

Scarlett Lynsky, CD(DONA), ICCE Answers
Disclaimer: I'm a doula and childbirth educator, not a medical provider. But in the interest of keeping anxiety down for those pregnant people who are anxious about providing optimal nutrition to the baby, here's my take. I often think of prenatal vitamins as more for the person carrying the pregnancy. The baby gets what the needs first, but then there may be little left for the pregnant person during or after the pregnancy! So, for those people that haven't been able to keep prenatals down, or found discovered their pregnancy a bit later in the game, don't worry, it's probably just fine. In my experience as a doula, anemia is really common, so make sure you talk to your doctor or midwife about absorbable forms of iron and other blood builders to keep up your energy.
