Birth Stories & Testimonials
Hear from some of Hallie's past clients
From the moment I met Hallie I know that she needed to be a part of my birth story and my life. She is one of the kindest, wholehearted people I have ever met and it is so obvious that she absolutely loves what she does. She was an incredible doula and was by my side every step of the way when I was in labor and captured some of the most breathtaking images for us when our son came earth side. Her services are absolutely priceless and we will treasure her friendship for a lifetime. I can't wait to have another baby and do it all over again! -Jenn M
Hallie is an amazing doula! With Hallie's loving guidance and support I was able to tune into my bodies wisdom and labor though to birth my first daughter vaginally during a very long labor with a malpositioned baby. Hallie was the perfect blend of a strong coach who pushed me to do my very best and an incredibly soft place to land when I needed to rest and recharge. She walked along side me, for hours. We talked. We laughed. And when I cried, she listened and responded with the kind of compassion that melted away my fears and reignited my energy to forge on when I thought I couldn't go any further. She was cool and calm and never missed a beat. She restarted my stalled labor better than any artificial drug (pitocin) ever could! I can't wait to do it all again and there is no question that Hallie will be there with us when we welcome our next babe to Earth! Hallie is doing the 'work' that she was meant to do--she is answering a calling and her passion amazing! I will not forget the timespent laboring with Hallie as my guide--I learned so much about myself. -Dana H
Hallie was fabulous! I had a very long labor and she would check in with me quite frequently as my contractions were very sporadic for over a day. Once I was finally able to go to the birthing center, Hallie showed up right away. She was so helpful to both my husband and myself. She was always offering suggestions on how to help relieve the pain, and also how to help my labor progress (when it wasn't). When we were transfrerred to the hospital (stubborn baby would not move!), Hallie came with us. She was so helpful to me (and my emotions!) when I did not want any pitocin or an epidural - but they insisted on pitocin. After a few hours of still no progress, my husband & I decided it was best for a c-section (I was GBS positive), and Hallie was there to help us through that as well and stayed with me during recovery, and made sure I was in my room! She also checked in with me for a few days to make sure everything was going well. I would definitely recommend Hallie as a doula - and will definitely utilize her services again when the time comes! -Stacy H
Hallie was my doula for the birth of my son. It felt like a long journey to get our beautiful son in our arms, and she was my support the whole way through. We had some complications durning the pregnancy, and looking back, they were not that serious, but during the pregnancy, there were times I felt like I was going to lose my little boy. Hallie was my guidance and helped me keep my faith and hopes that it would be ok. We had our son at UCH in Tampa, and after an excruciating long induction and ultimate C-Section, Hallie was there supporting us all the way through. Because of Hallie, I know that my birth went as it should have and I made educated decisions thoughout my journey. She was my rock during labor and I wouldn't have another baby unless I knew Hallie could be there to help us again!
Since our son's birth, Hallie continues to be part of our lives. I still feel free to reference her as first-time parents with questions and get such great feedback with her amazing knowledge.
I would recommend Hallie to anyone who is looking to have the best birth possible. -Niana R
