It’s been 6 weeks since my sweet baby boy was brought into this world with the help of Stephanie by my side. I wanted a natural medicine free delivery but this boy had other plans. Even though I had to be induced and did not get the birth plan I wanted Stephanie was by my side for 36 hours of labor reassuring me and helping me navigate a very difficult situation. I do not know what I would have done without her. She truly kept me grounded and focused on my goal of delivering a healthy baby boy and I could not be more grateful. I highly recommend this dedicated passionate woman to any and all mamas and will definitely be calling her for baby number 2! Thank you Stephanie! Kanan and I ❤️ U! ~ Christina Marie Harris
“The techniques Stephanie suggested were helpful to Sarah both physically and emotionally. I enjoyed having Stephanie as a part of Sarah’s team, she was a bright light in the room.” ~ John Fassett, California Pacific Medical Center, Certified Nurses Midwife
I really needed those hip compressions! I don’t know if I could have kept going without them. I had no idea what to expect having never met you, but I couldn’t have been more thrilled. Honestly. You were the best. ~ Maura Hannigan
“Thank you for coming out in the middle of the night. You being there was very comforting. You were awesome Stephanie and I couldn’t have done it without you.” Sarah McDonough
“Stephanie Dalton has been doing backup for me for several years and I am thrilled that she is moving into birth work full time. Yay. I appreciate her ability to respond and act quickly with birth needs. Often I have called her very spur of the moment needing assistance immediately and she has managed to show up with a smile on her face and the willingness to do what it takes to take care of anyone that needs support. The clients she has supported have had very satisfactory experiences, in fact, rave about her support. I am always grateful for her quick responses, her smart abilities with birth challenges and at the same time keeping her focus on the mom’s experience and comfort. She is respectful of the mother’s experience as she defines it. She is respectful and considerate of the hospital staff and their expertise. Stephanie builds bridges and makes friends in her working environment. She has proven to be an invaluable part of my cherished and highly cultivated team.” ~ Felicia Roche, DONA Certified Doula, www.feliciaroche.com / www.feliciaroche.com/services/backupdoulas
Stephanie is one of the warmest, most nurturing people I know. She wants to feed you, she wants to support you, she just can’t help it! From making her bone broth or lamb stew, to listening when things get tough, to being a veritable warrior for what’s right – you can’t take the nurturer out of Stephanie. I’m too old to have more kids, but I can’t imagine a more positive and pro-active person to have by my side.
