Dawn read me like a book. She helped me push through the fear of being a first time mom. I wanted to stay outside for the majority of my contractions and she encouraged this. She could tell when I was about to have another contraction even before I did! She used a couple techniques that helped my labor progress and without her help I think I would have labored longer. My favorite techniques of hers were the doula squeeze, bouncing on the yoga ball, and frequent trips to the restroom. I really enjoyed Jade's birth and I really don't think it would have gone as smooth if she weren't there. It was one of the most wonderful experiences of my life and the next time I'm pregnant I definetely plan to call her! Dawn is a God sent!
Dawn Housos is simply amazing. She has been given a talent to understand mothers and the ins and outs of pregnancy and boy does she use that talent well! Dawn was my doula at our second home birth. I can't believe what a difference it made in labor and delivery that she was by my side, compared to my first home birth without a doula present. She was very encouraging and helpful during the weeks leading up to delivery and very insistent on asking me how I was feeling and if I needed anything. Once I told her I felt the beginning of labor she was by my side immediately all day ( about 12 hours) doing everything I needed before I ever asked. She brought with her knowledge, confidence,a warm nurturing attitude, perfect timing in presence when I needed her most, and the excellent ability to create a calm atmosphere. Those are just a few of the many more wonderful qualities that describe her. She enabled me to feel empowered and focused on the task at hand and made sure I had everything I needed to keep my mind and body relaxed and comfortable. And my favorite part- she constantly reminded me I was amazing(every laboring woman needs to hear that!) Dawn provided excellent assistance during delivery, literally holding my hand every step of the way. Dawn was there to answer any questions I had health related, gave me informed advice on breastfeeding and was willing to check up on me post partum. I would HIGHLY recommend New Dawn Birth Services for any birth setting. You won't be disappointed in the care you will receive! I was honored to have her by my side.
I love my doula! She was the best coach and encouragement that I think I could have ever had. Between her and my husband I don’t think that I could have made it without them. She knew exactly what I needed when I needed. When I was tired and worn down she was very thoughtful and knew what to do to keep me going. I would recommend Dawn at any birth weather a home, at a birthing center or even at a hospital. She would make sure that you got the care that you deserved and the wishes that you desired! Did I mention that I love my doula!
