Flavia Piveta

My experience with Eugenia as Doula was wonderful and continues to be with her continued support. Since day 1 I felt confidence and support in her words, I felt that my baby, my family and I were in good hands.
We had our pre natal classes in the comfort of our home and Eugenia was always able to answer our questions a she was a great resource for information about breastfeeding and pros n cons of various medical interventions.
During the delivery, She guided my husband and my mom so they could offer valuable support as well. Her attention and words of encouragement were essencial to me. The more I felt tired, the more she was there with my family to support me and let me know that everything was well and that I would soon be with my baby.
Eugenia has been a great support during postpartum too. She has not only visited us , but also has always been checking how I am and how breastfeeding is going. It is going great and I am so happy I am able to 100% breastfeed my little girl.
I am extremely happy we had Eugenia in the most wonderful moments of our lives, she is amazing and I would definitely recommend her.

thank you Eugenia !

En mi segundo TOLAC quería que Eugenia fuera mi Doula porque había hecho una conexión especial con ella en mi segundo embarazo(mi primer TOLAC).Ahora,para mi tercer embarazo planifiqué el parto en mi hogar y Eugenia fue mi apoyo desde las primeras semanas de embarazo. Ella me ayudó tanto emocionalmente que me convertí en una mujer preparada y apoderada de mi proceso. En nuestra primera visita prenatal surgieron tres palabras como contrato conmigo misma( Soy una mujer: Comunicativa,Capaz y Decidida),en todo el embarazo las utilicé y en el parto me recordó repetirlas,esto me reafirmaba mi deseo y poder para lograrlo. Su voz me guiaba para respirar con más tranquilidad. Mi corazón palpitaba fuertemente y su manos impregnadas de un rico aceite esencial sobaban mi pecho y llegaba la calma que necesitaba.Su compañía me hizo sentir segura. Pude lograr un VBAC después de dos cesáreas en mi hogar y luego del parto Eugenia me ayudó con la lactancia y con el manejo de mi postparto. Eugenia,siempre estaré agradecida del trabajo que hiciste conmigo.

Eugenia me asistió en mi segundo embarazo y sin ella no hubiese podido manejar 4 días con contracciones. Sus masajes y empleo de aceites esenciales,sus cuidados,la música me ayudaron mucho a tener el control de mis respiraciones.Su presencia fue un gran apoyo y fue de gran ayuda en mi postparto.Pude tener la experiencia de sentir contracciones sin ser provocadas por fármacos.Eugenia me ayudó a conocerme y a conectarme con mi bebé y el proceso.
