Dear Diane,

I wanted to write you a letter to express how deeply grateful and indebted we feel to you and your assistant, Kristina. We know, without a doubt, that my labor and delivery would not have been as wonderful and rewarding as it was if we hadn't hired you.

When we met you at our childbirth classes, my husband and I felt a connection with you immediately. Knowing that my labor and delivery was going to have extra challenges (due to my drug allergies, 4 spinal surgeries, and the wish to have an unmedicated childbirth), my husband wanted to make sure that we had every angle covered to make it go as smoothly as possible. Before you, however, we had never thought of hiring a Personal Childbirth Trainer. Who knew it would turn out to be one of the best decisions we had ever made?

Your services went above and beyond just the day I delivered. The personal care and attention you offered throughout my pregnancy was very reassuring. From coming to our home to show us videos and techniques, to being "on-call" for all my questions and concerns, you made me feel as if I could do anything!

When my labor did actually start, you even made it to the hospital before me! You guided me through each contraction, and helped keep me focused or distracted…whichever I needed more at the moment. And your secret technique for making my contractions stronger and more regular - without pitocin - was a God-send!

Also, your assistant, Kristina, was absolutely amazing in the massage department! The massage with the aromatherapy lotion was heavenly! I actually "forgot" about some of my contractions when she was working on my back! (and considering that I was 8cm dilated at the time, that speaks volumes!) As if I couldn't have felt pampered enough, Kristina was the icing on the cake! She, like you, was the perfect blend of professionalism and compassion. I felt very lucky to have you both at my delivery.

It was your voice that guided me through the most trying time of my labor, and that is something I will never forget. We want to thank you for everything you both did on the most amazing day of our lives! I accomplished my goal of having an unmedicated birth, to which I owe tribute to you and Kristina.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I will highly recommend your services to anyone that I know who is pregnant, and you can guarantee you will hear from us when we have our second baby!

With lots of Love and Thanks,

Amy, Eric, & Baby Jake Aronowitz

Dear Diane,

I am so happy to be writing you yet ANOTHER letter to express how deeply grateful we are to you and your services with our second pregnancy. I can say without a doubt, I would not have had as wonderful a pregnancy, labor, and delivery if we hadn't hired you.

We had such wonderful positive experiences with you when our son, Jacob Martin, was born. Due to my special circumstances that prohibit me from getting an epidural, I knew I wouldn't want to do labor again if I didn't have you. (And my sweet, dear husband didn't want an unhappy pregnant wife!) Because of that, you were one of the first phone calls we made when we found out we were expecting our second child. (I think I was maybe 9 minutes pregnant when I hired you this time around!) I knew that by hiring you, I was guaranteeing myself peace of mind throughout my entire pregnancy---something that is absolutely priceless. You always make me feel so important, and answer my millions of questions without ever getting annoyed.

We were on pins and needles waiting for my labor to begin...thinking it would be any day since I was walking around 4cm dilated for weeks!! But, alas, Mason had a mind of his own. I loved working with your friend, chiropractor, and acupuncturist, Dr. Solloway. He was such a wonderful resource for anyone wanting a natural delivery! When my labor did actually start, you made it to the hospital before me---again! As scared as I was of a natural, unmedicated delivery, I felt so reassured when I saw your smiling face in my hospital room. You provided love, support, comic relief when needed, and helped keep me calm in some very stressful times in that delivery room. After 3 hours of walking, bouncing on the birthing ball, and laboring wherever else I felt comfy, Mason Riley made his entrance into the world at 9:04pm, weighing 9lbs 2oz, and 21 inches long.

Once again, it was your voice (along with my husband's, of course) that guided me through the most trying time of my labor, and that is something I will never forget. I cannot find the right words to express our gratitude to you. "Thank you" just doesn't seem adequate enough. You have become like family to us, and I hope that is something we can cherish for years to come.

I will continue to highly recommend your services to anyone that I know who is pregnant, and if we decide to have a third baby, you will be one of the first to know!!

With lots of Love and Thanks,

Amy, Eric, Jacob, and Baby Mason
