I am very grateful that Justina was part of my birth. Although I connected with her very late in my pregnancy, she was very flexible and made herself available to help me and my husband prepare for the birth of our daughter. She came to our home and taught us various great comfort techniques and talked us through the birth process, answering any questions we had. Her knowledge, professionalism, and kind and genuine personality helped me and my husband feel very at ease about giving birth. Once I went into labor, she came to the hospital right away (I didn't call her until we were already on the way there as I progressed rather quickly at home) and was there for us every step of the way. She made us both feel very comfortable and gave me great support through each contraction until our baby arrived. Having her there with us was amazing and made all the difference in our experience. I was so happy that with her help I was able to have the peaceful and relatively painless birth I had envisioned! Justina checked up on me regularly not only during my pregnancy but afterwards as well. She even came to my house with a home cooked meal. I am truly thankful Justina was our doula and would highly recommend her to anyone!
I couldn’t be any happier with my birth experience and so grateful Justina was there to speak life, pray, and edify me! During my labor, she helped me feel confident laboring at home all those hours before my son was born. She gave me helpful suggestions for coping with the contractions, breathing techniques, creating a relaxing ambience with candles, sented diffuser, and soothed me by massaging my shoulders & lower back. She carefully massaged my lower back every time I had a contraction. This was for several hours! Without her massages, words of encouragement, and support throughout the labor it would have been a very different experience. All these things and more helped me work through transition and helped me feel confident in my ability to give birth without pain medication.
Justina has a natural mild disposition, helpful & non judgmental that lends herself naturally to this job. She is a mother herself and if you want her to take charge, she will take charge but if you want her to step back, she will do that too.
