“It wasn’t a difficult decision for me to hire Brandy for my impending VBAC. I had heard so many great things about her and when we spoke on the phone, she was already able to make me feel like I was NOT broken and I COULD do this! My water broke at 39 weeks but it took a while before active labor took place. Once it did, I called Brandy over who got down on the floor with me (mind you, it was about 4 in the morning) and applied amazing counter pressure to my hips and back.
Additionally, she used cold rags with essential oils to relieve my nausea. The oils had an immediate affect! She held a warm compress to my uterus during some of my contractions. I eventually made my way to the tub where I remained the rest of the time. She reminded me to change positions and also to relax when I didn’t even realize I was tensing up. She also played my favorite song, which put me at a neccessary peace-of-mind state.
I ended up being so comfortable that, by the time we arrived to the hospital, I was complete and ready to push! I got overwhelmed at this point because I hadn’t done it before and I was getting nervous. Brandy used a calm voice the entire time that helped me know that everything would be ok. Her confidence in me never wavered. I can’t explain how crucial that was to my success. Without Brandy’s help, I’m really not sure I would have had a successful VBAC! I would highly reccommend Brandy Harris to any pregnant woman preparing for birth!”
