“Oona was an angel to the laboring woman (no family or support person), the nursing staff and to me that evening. She served as a very calm presence to an extremely needy and complicated woman who desired a natural birth. Oona’s presence truly changed the dynamic of this woman’s labor. No matter how rewarding a birth is for attendants, it can be draining physically and emotionally. Oona was steady, kind and patient. I was baffled she never stepped away for much deserved emotional breaks during the difficult and long labor. She never had an edge of impatience to her voice, nor wavered in “holding the space” for the mamma.”
