“I am so grateful to have had Amber with us. Giving Birth—it turns out—can be extremely exhausting for the man as well! I would not have been able to support my wife the way I did if it were not for Amber supporting me. From the initial planning and advice, to handling practical matters of food and reminding us to rest, to being a constant source of encouragement and vital information. Amber made it possible for me to be there for my wife the way I hoped I would be. I appreciate that Amber enabled me to be the lead support while never leaving my wife’s side either. She knew when to handle the background work and when to step in. For that we are extremely grateful”-Jonathan Alvarado
“I loved having Amber Churn to be my doula. She has been a continuous source of comfort, encouragement, and support from the first time we met and during my labor. She served as a soothing voice making my labor experience less scary and more comfortable.”-Amy Fields
