My experience with Vanessa was wonderful. I took a child birth class at NYU and because of some concerns I had my instructor recommended I get a doula. I’m so glad I did. It was fairly late in my pregnancy when we met but it was definitely worth it. Vanessa calmed me down tremendously, backed me up when I had concerns, made sure I was comfortable with every request and suggestion the doctor made, made phone calls, communicated with my family in Georgia (all very anxious for information). She really made the day. She was calm, kind, competent and extremely professional. I recommend her without reservatio!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about my experience with Vanessa Wingerath as my doula. Throughout my pregnancy and during the labor, Vanessa was a calm and nuturing presence that made me feel secure in the many decisions that I had to make.
In our inital visit, Vanessa walked us through the labor and we collaborated on what her role would be vs. my husband's role. She was completely open to what my husband and I wanted, and I never felt judged or insecure about expressing my wishes no matter how random! As my labor stretched until 42 weeks, Vanessa was always available by phone to reach out to with questions, concerns, or even random complaints!
As for the labor, Vanessa was an absolute champ with supporting my husband and me through both the physical and emotional parts of labor, the latter of which proved to be the most challenging for me. During labor I was an absolute emotional mess when things did not progress according to plan and I had to make tough game-time decisions. Vanessa was essential in helping my husband and I remain grounded and was extremely helpful while talking things through with our medical team. She helped to refocus us on what we COULD keep from our original plan so that our little girl could have the most peaceful and mindful birth possible despite the circumstances. Moreover, when our little girl finally arrived, Vanessa captured some gorgeous images that we will cherish forever!
As a first-time mother, I was very scared about going through labor. Vanessa was my rock through every part and I'm so grateful to have had her as my doula.
