We initially met Patty over Zoom — her demeanor immediately felt warm and welcoming. Our call lasted much longer than was initially intended, but that's because we had a lot of questions, and Patty provided enthusiastic, detailed answers. Shortly after that first meeting, Patty came to our home, answered even more of our dizzying array of questions, and coached us on the various physical techniques to help with different stages of active labor.
When Isabel first went into active labor, Patty was not present. Although we had been communicating with her over text, we were a little disappointed and concerned that she wasn't, then, at the hospital with us. Later, we discovered that she was actually coming to meet us — straight from another birth or two nights of births in a row! Our original perception of Patty's reliability and relentless work ethic was again confirmed.
Patty arrived at the hospital sometime mid-morning, and stayed late into the evening, after the baby was born. She was consistently able to change the game-plan to keep Isabel comfortable and progressing, all the while, she integrated seamlessly with the rest of the hospital staff — offering truly warm and personalized care, among a bunch of necessary, but otherwise cold medical interventions.
Soon after the birth, Patty came to our home for a postpartum visit with a warm jar of delicious, home-made chicken soup in hand. We really appreciated that. She also answered all of our questions we had as new parents and provided Isabel with some highly effective tips on breastfeeding, which weren't shown to us in the hospital.
Patty's knowledge, compassion, and constant encouragement throughout all stages of pregnancy, labor, and delivery, make her an amazing doula. We truly couldn't have asked for better.
Patty was the best support I could’ve asked for. From our first meeting I could tell she was a one of a kind person I wanted to have at our home birth. She provided us with so much useful information in the months before that would help me. When I thought my water broke in the middle of the night I texted her and she replied within minutes if not within seconds!! She called me and talked me thru what I should do. Just having someone that responsive and available to answer any questions or offer input helped put me at ease immensely. Patty also communicated with my midwife so I could focus on breathing. My husband loved that we had her and it was a great help to him as well. She arrived just at the right time when my contractions were intensifying and she was there for me physically mentally and emotionally with strong arms to support me and encouraging words I really don’t think I could have done it without her!! Patty stayed with us a while after the birth as well and even came by for a home visit a few days later where we just talked about the experience and baby related things in general. I wish I had known her for when I had my first baby as well I believe I could’ve have an entirely better experience at the hospital. And she took amazing photos of our birth that I will cherish forever!!!
Patty was an exceptional addition to my birth team. She was so supportive before and after my homebirth, and she had a ton of valuable experience to share on everything from breastfeeding to potty training. She put me, my partner, and my family at ease throughout the entire birthing experience. Plus, the photos that she took right after my child was born were truly gorgeous. I'm so grateful for her and can't wait to work with her again when I have my next child.
Patty was an upbeat and motivational doula from the first time we met with her months before delivery. She reassured us that my wife's birth experience was going to be a wonderful moment that we would remember forever.
During the early stages of labor, Patty was a source of useful information to help us stay calm and focused. Once we were all in the delivery room, Patty got to work setting the room up for a calm delivery. She was efficient and helpful. She kept working with my wife, helping her breathe, move to new positions, and focus on the new baby. She never stopped helping -- she was also very good at pointing out ways I could assist my wife as labor progressed.
Thank you for helping us bring new life into this world!
I can’t express enough how helpful Patty was with the birth of our first child. From the beginning we got helpful advice and information to read. As delivery got closer, we learned techniques for helping labor progress smoothly and calmly. I am most grateful for the help and support we received in the hospital from Patty. She was consistently by my side helping me through the various stages of labor. Whether it was the massage, applying comforting pressure, using essential oils or a whole host of other wonderful strategies she used, she worked for hours to help both my husband and me have the best birth experience possible. She is also talented at documenting the experience through photos, and we have several to help us remember the special day where we welcomed our son. Thank you, Patty!
I couldn't recommend Patty enough. I will be always grateful for all her support during my pregnancy and labor. My husband and I have all family in Europe and with COVID we could not have them around and having Patty as doula helped us a lot.During pregnancy, she is always available to solve any concerns you may have during pregnancy, she will share with you all the resources she has to make sure you are well informed and make you feel calmed and empowered. She helped me prepare my birth plan, which was great too!
During the days prior to labor, she helped me a lot. My baby was borned at 41weeks 5 days, which made the wait pretty long and tense. She helped me to relax and do everything possible to induce labor naturally.
During labor, I can't explain how great Patty was. She partnered perfectly with my husband. They were an awesome team. They were able to help me cope every single contraction, she was always there to encourage me to make sure I was breathing and I was embracing the contractions. In the moments were I was losing my confidence, she was always there to remember I could do it. And on top of that, she managed to take wonderful pictures from the process. We did not choose her because of that, but when we saw the pictures we were really happy to have these wonderful black and white photos to remember such an special moment. I still do not know how she was able to do all at once!
Patty, you are a wonderful doula, thank you!
I honestly can't say enough great things about Patty. Patty is an incredible doula and exactly the support person that I wanted and needed for the birth of my son. I was a first time mom and although I researched, took courses, and read books I still did not know what to expect for active labor and giving birth. My husband is a great partner, but he was totally unsure of how help me in labor. Patty gave me confidence and information every step of the way. She helped my husband prepare for how to support me and guided us throughout my pregancy. She was responsive in giving advice when my baby was breech at 34 weeks; meeting with us at 36 weeks after the baby turned and teaching us positions for labor; and giving me peaceful reassurance at 41 weeks when my due date had passed and I was experiencing prodromal labor. At 41+2 I had an unexpected risk develop in my pregancy and my OB/midwife recommended inducing labor. This was a deviation from my natural birth plan and my emotions were all over the place. Patty spent hours on the phone with me giving support and encouragement. This allowed me to have a truly peaceful and positive mindset going into labor the next day. During labor, Patty created a calming environmnt in the hospital room. She made great suggestions for positions, helped me labor in the shower, and supported me every step of the way. She was there from 5pm until a couple hours after my son was born at 4:35am. She also took birth photos, which I didn't realize I would want until I saw them. Patty also helped with breastfeeding and came to our home a week after I gave birth, which was such a comfort. My husband was on the fence about if hiring a doula would be worth it and afterwards he said she way more than just worth it. I will hire Patty as our doula for any future pregnancies also.
My wife and I had a great birth experience with Patty while we prepared and attempted to have unmedicated Labor. I feel she brought a ton of experience and confidence in through the processes and helped communicate with the Hosptial team.
It was great because despite covid we managed to have her by our side during labor. She brought a lot of warmth as our family could not be with us during or after labor as they live overseas.
As a Husband I wanted to be there and help out all the time and at times I had to take breaks, I felt she helped fill my absence caring for my wife in Labor. She brought in music, candles, scents and other tools that helped us stay focused. She took great pictures of the process with discretion and following the Hospital´s rules.
We are very grateful of her help and recommend Patty´s Doula services!!
Absolutely wonderful! I could not have done the long hours of labor without Patrycja. She definitely is very knowledgeable, was calming and collected during my intense contractions. Loved the massage, truly helped. Also,the pictures that she took during and after are a great memory to cherish. I don't know how she does it... the long hours of it all. Thank God for people like her. Thank you Patrycja ??.
I became pregnant in February 2020 with no real idea how I wanted to give birth or where. Then the pandemic hit and I started to look at my options because I started hearing babies being separated from their mamas in hospitals if mama or dad tested positive for COVID. That's when I decided on a homebirth and then I met Patty. Sometimes in life you meet someone and you just "click," I instantly knew Patty would be such a huge part of my life the day I met her. She made me feel so at ease at our initial meeting. She was so knowledgeable, helpful, and understanding. She really made me feel more confident to deliver my first born at home. When my water broke on Halloween and when I couldn't handle the pain, Patty came right over and she started guiding my husband and me through breathing techniques and counter pressure. In between contractions we would laugh, but during the waves it was all hands on deck. She was so peaceful, she really made my husband and me feel like we were prepared for this unknown journey and long night ahead. When things started to really get intense she was there to tell me I could do it, she repeated it to me as many times as I needed to hear it. Most of my labor and pain is a blur, which is a good thing. I don't remember it being painful or intense and that's all thanks to Patty's directions. Finally our little guy arrived. Throughout the course of my labor, Patty was taking pictures and these pictures are the most beautiful photos of the most amazing experience of our lives. I am forever grateful for her guidance, positivity, and love.
As a first time mom, I really didn't know much about anything. Patty gave me so many pointers before labor and after. She showed me how to massage my baby when he showed signs of colic,many nursing pointers, and even offered to wash my dishes while I showered. She is the friend every woman needs in this world.
We couldn't be happier with our experience working with Patty. We had decided to hire a doula after learning more about them in our Evidence Based Birth class. After reading reviews about Patty, we decided to meet with her. Right from the start, she was very kind, compassionate and caring. She helped us to better understand her role and also helped us to realize that perhaps we were not receiving the best care possible from our obstetrician. She introduced us to a midwifery group in the area, and that really worked out so well for us. In the months leading up to my delivery, Patty was regularly in contact with us, sending along various resources to consider to help with baby position and to make for a more comfortable birthing experience. She also helped with the birth plan, which was quite an endeavor in and of itself. For my delivery, I wound up needing an induction. My induction lasted about 30 hours in total, and I was in constant contact with Patty during this time to have her help me through it and decide what to do next. Once it was getting closer, she came to the hospital. Once there, she helped me to relax after the epidural was placed. It was just so nice to have her there! She was so encouraging, and really made me feel at ease throughout the entire process. She also took several pictures of the entire birthing process as an added bonus. These are amazing to look back on, and bring me to tears all over again as I look through them. All in all, I could not have asked for a more pleasant birthing experience, and it all started with Patty. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Perhaps like most fathers (or soon to be), I had no idea what a doula was or what they did. My wife and I met with Patty about 4-5 months before the due date and she discussed with us her services and answered our questions. I had a pretty good idea at that point of what she does but still not entirely sure of her worth. We met a few more times before my wife's day of labor and went over more detailed things like exercises during early labor. Now lets fast forward the day of our son's birth. Patty had met us at the hospital at a time where my wife's constractions were eractic and almost stopped (we had been in early labor now for over 30 hours). Patty then began her magic. She got my wife relaxed, set candles, music and lighting for a more comfortable setting. Within about 2.5 hours my wife was having regular strong contactions 2 minutes apart and we were finally in active labor. For the next 3-4 hours she and I helped my wife through active labor. She was so caring and hands on with my wife and also allowed me to be as useful as possible, helping me ease my wife's labor through massage, hip squeezing and positive words of support. In the end we had our beautiful boy through our original birth plan: 100% natural and as a water birth. Patty stayed with us for a while longer and took the most beautiful pictures of our birthing experience. I now know after having experienced my wife's labor how helpful Patty was to both of us and we are not quite sure how we could have done it without her. Patty is so professional and compassionate and we highly recommend her for your child's birth.
Patrycja was amazing during my delivery time. She was very helpful and I felt very comfortable having her as my dula. She is wonderful person. My husband was very skeptical at first but after he saw how helpful Patrycja was and how much support she gave me he changed his mind and now is telling to everyone about her. I truly recommend Patti and her service.
As a father who was admittedly not entirely convinced that a doula was going to be something we needed during this whole process, let me say that I am truly thankful we hired Patty. Even after reading all the books and trying to prepare the best you can, when the time came, having Patty's can-do attitude and plethora of experience in the room proved to be indispensable.
Patty is an amazing doula and I highly recommend her! She was a great resource throughout my pregnancy and quickly answered any questions I had and sent additional resources. She was our rock and support during labor and after when our daughter went into NICU. I honestly couldn't have done it without her, we are so lucky to have had her and feel like we made a lifelong friend. If you're looking for a doula that will be with you the entire journey, that has a fun personality but also keeps it real and pushes you when you need it, then you need Patty.
Patty was such a big support for our birthing experience. She provided encouragement and support throughout the entire process and kept in touch throughout my pregnancy. We were able to have the birth we imagined and Patty was a huge part of that. She is knowledgeable about many different topics related to birthing including rebozo techniques, breathing excercises and what to expect once we got to the hospital. I would highly recommend her as a doula!
Patty was a great part of our birth team! She was incredibly helpful from the first meeting all the way through post partum checkup. Patty asked guiding questions and provided supporting resources. I appreciate that she sought my input in the process - my perceived strengths and concerns. Lastly, she was a huge help during labor - providing guidance, resources and an extra set of helping hands. I would definitely recommend Patty as a part of your birth team.
Patty is my hero! This is my first pregnancy and I decided to have a home birth. Glad I did because my baby was born during the Covid-19 Pandemic. My midwife said I needed a Doula since I was a first time mom. So I searched for a Doula and the reviews on Patty caught my eye. Everyone was saying how great she was with pain management. And I new that's what I needed if I was ever going to have a baby with no meds! My husband and I met with Patty and we knew we didn't need to look any further. She had a very warm approach and we could tell she was passionate about what she does. Skip forward to the the delivery day. Patty was available when I needed her most. I went from early labor to active labor really fast and Patty arrived just in time. If I didn't have her I probably would have wanted to go to the hospital to get drugs. I was supposed to have a water birth but I got out the pool because I was uncomfortable. Patty put me in a great position in the bed and helped me breath through the contractions. She had a nice calm voice reminding me to breathe the baby down and this helped keep me calm. About an hour later I gave birth to our son Jeremias. Unfortunately my husband and I called the midwife a little late and she was an hour away. So the baby came before she arrived, which was 5 minutes later. However we did not worry, Patty was very calm and helpful, we had the midwife on the phone, and my husband caught the baby! Wow what an amazing experience and I couldn't have got through this without my awesome Doula. If I have a second child I will definitely hire her again.
I don't use the word "perfect" lightly. Our experience with Patty was perfect. Kind, friendly, intelligent, hard working, completely professional without being even at all stuffy or inaccessible. She meshed so well with our midwife during our home birth. Even as the new father, I felt just as supported as I know my partner felt. Thanks Patty. So good. So so good.
From the moment that my husband I met with Patty we knew that she would be the perfect match to help us through our labor. She was very energetic, knowledgable and compassionate and exactly what we were looking for in a Doula. We clicked with her right away and knew she would be the perfect addition to our birth plan. After our first meeting she made us feel comfortable and told us to connect with her with any follow up questions that we had. She wanted to make sure that that we were sure about our decision before moving forward. This attitude just confirmed for us that she would be the right choice. From the moment we told her we wanted her as our Doula she stayed in contact with us to make sure we had all the resources that we needed to prepare for our birth. She was always super responsive with any questions that we had which helped ease any anxiety that we had about our upcoming labor.
Once my labor started Patty was on call waiting for us to give her the signal to join us. Having Patty join us at the hospital was a godsend. She immediatley came in and started setting up a relaxing ambience to help my husband and I get into the right mindset. She stayed by my side for the next 12 hours or so making sure that I was comfortable and reminding me to stay calm and focused. Having her by my side while I labored kept me in a positive and calm mindset. She helped coach my husband as well so that they could tag team together to help me labor. I could not have imagined being able to labor without her by my side. I am a firm believer that people come into your life for a reason, Patty came into our lives to help bring the most precious gift that we will ever have into this world. I will always highly recommend her to anyone looking for a Doula.
In October 2019 I had my beautiful baby girl in the comfort of our home,with an amazing group of women. One of which being Patrycja and I couldn't tell you enough how wonderful she really was during that special time in our lives. Upon first meeting Patty my husband and I new from that very moment that she was the doula we wanted. She was warm, welcoming, understanding, animal lover and being first time parents she made us feel comfortable. When the day finally came she was a life savor in helping me breath and relax my body during contractions and in guiding my husband in helping put pressure on my back/hips. Another thing that really made everything special was the photos she was able to capture during the birth of my little girl. All my animals loved her and she was able to capture photos of my animals with me as labor progressed as well as my baby being born. My husband and I truly appreciate Patty and everything she did for our family.
If you are reading this you are probably deciding whether or not to hire a Doula. I understand, I was that person too. I work in healthcare and was told it's unnecessary to have a Doula because the Nurses are there. Well, let me tell you, NOT TRUE. The Nurses were not attentive and the moment Patty came into the birthing room I was instantly calm. I also thought, how can you pick a stranger to be in the room at such an intimate time? The second I met Patty I understood. She has an incredible energy and calming presence. She loves what she does and it shows. She even helped coach me through the birthing process without an epidural! Her knowledge and preparation is impeccable. She gave us laboring positions and techniques that we would've never known through our own research. You might think why Patty? Not only is her energy incredible but she was SO responsive. No matter what time of the day I e-mailed, texted, or called she responded immediately. That in itself speaks volumes! Patty was AMAZING and I can't thank her enough for the wonderful experience I had, well as wonderful as giving birth can be. ;) Good Luck my pregnant friends and may the odds be forever in your favor.
My girlfriend and I hired Patrycja on the day of labor that started 2 weeks early. We could not make up our minds before as Patrycja was going to be unavailable on the due date, and other doulas charged twice as much in some cases. In retrospect, I have no clue how we would survive without Patrycja. My girlfriend decided to have natural labor that was exhausting for both of us. Patrycja was with her every minute providing guidance, support, and numerous techniques that were very helpful to manage pain while long hours were passing by.
I would recommend hiring Patrycja to every couple, especially to every hesitant man who will be present during birth of their children. She really knows what she’s doing, has a very friendly personality, and takes amazing pictures. Even our midwife admitted during a follow-up visit that she comes across several doulas and that ours was amazing.
This was our second time with Patty as my doula. I wouldn't have anyone else! She's so supportive and helpful! She helped me keep to my birth plan and make it through the contractions without an epidural. She works so well with my midwife and the RNs at the hospital were amazed with how awesome Patty was as well! (They all commented separately about how supportive Patty was, and how well she knew how to help my husband and me work through the contractions.) Patty spent a lot of time supporting me with initial breastfeeding/ skin to skin just after birth, with birthing the placenta, and handling the postpartum contractions. Patty was there to help me with just enjoying the first couple hours after the birth of our son. I recommend Patty to all my pregnant friends! She's a phenomenal doula! I'll continue to send people to Patty anytime so others can experience the support she provides!
If you’re searching for a doula, Patty is the person you need. I was hesitant to hire her due to the amount of births she has attended and boy was I wrong! It felt as she has been doing this her whole life! Patty is personable, knowledgeable and has great communication skills.
My natural water birth was a great experience and I owe a lot of it to Patty. She was a great leader and had me going when I was on the verge of giving up. She was a great communicator via text, she responded quickly to my messages and followed up when I didn’t send her anything for a while. She offered to come to our home, but we decided it might be better to meet at the hospital. From the moment she walked into our room I knew I was in good hands. She might be a person in a tiny body, but she has a huge heart and passion for what she does. She’s very knowledgeable and personable. She had me doing poses and walking the entire time until it was time to push. Not sure what my experience would have looked like if we didn’t have Patty with us! She even brought me chicken noodle soup when she visited me at home and it was the best chicken noodle I ever had! If we ever have another child I will for sure use Patty again!
Where to even begin! I am a first-time mama, and I felt completely overwhelmed whenever I thought about labor and the entire birthing time. I would think about all of the movies and stories I heard, and I did not want to have those traumatic stories become my story.
Being able to meet with Patty was incredibly helpful for my husband and me. She provided a perfect starting point to begin our research about natural birthing and creating a birth plan. She gave support and emailed us resources and links during those next few months- answering all of my questions and concerns with graciousness and patience. Just by giving us that little nudge to learn more for ourselves, we were given the tools to feel more confident in our decisions and not completely "out of our element" when we enter the hospital.
Patty was incredibly encouraging and wonderful the day-of our baby's birth. Just being able to talk with her eased both my husband and my concerns knowing that she's been through this and could guide us through this new experience as we enter the hospital. During the labor time, Patty was wonderful as she supported me and Ryan. She created a peaceful and calm atmosphere in the room (some nurses would even come in just because this was the "chill" room!). The nurses all loved her, and she was wonderful for the 8 hours of labor in that room as she reminded me to breathe and relax when I would forget. Lots of patience, words of encouraement, and exactly what I needed.
We are so thankful for Patty's support, and I couldn't imagine going through this without her help and support! She is a dear friend, and I would recommend her to anyone interested in having a doula who 1) knows her stuff, 2) cares deeply about her clients, 3) intuitive of when to speak up in the hospital room and gaining the respect of OB and nurses alike, and 4) tremendously supports both momma and daddy throughout the entire pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.
Heres the scoop, my wife is a high anxiety creature and we found out we were expecting around August of last year. This was after trying once already with a miscarriage, but she has this anthropology degree and mentioned hey we should hire a doula! I had no idea what that was, she explained throughout history women giving birth had other women help them through the miracle of birth, I said sure but I still didnt understand what this entailed. Then came November when we met up with Patty. I knew from the interview she not only cared about what she does but she cared about my wife and her needs and I understood this was a business transaction - I'm not easily sold but I was totally onboard but still skeptical because the title Doula still sounded funny in my head. We agreed to bring her onboard the Rojas family train and the destination was the birth of my son. Patty also recommended my wife and I attend something called Hypnobirthing classes with Robin to be ahead of the anxiety game, and Patty checked up on us until the big day came. I was getting concerned on timing since I'm ignorant to how long the birthing process takes but as we kept in contact she knew when to come which was the right time and she came into the room and I felt relief and when my wife wimpered in pain she turned into Patty the mighty doula and started from that point until the end helping my wife be more comfortable I would absolutely recommend hiring Patty to any other new moms and dads 10/10 would recommend Patty as your Doula.
In short I do want to let Dads know her services are for both of you when you need a break and when your lady needs 2 cheerleaders sometimes its okay to have the extra help because I can tell you now the nurses and doctors have lots on their plate already.
Patty was awesome! I cannot say enough wonderful things about her. My birth experience was so different because of her. She was supportive, kind and caring. She was there for me in every way that I needed and made my birth experience remarkable. She took plenty of time to talk to me before hand she answered all my questions with lots of patience and compassion and for that I am so thankful.
We had a baby boy on the way and learned about Patty and her services offered. We contacted her for more information. She personally met with us to discuss our plan, give tips and was a great communicator in the weeks prior to my sons birth. Patty is “ one in a million“ she went over and beyond the call of duty. My wife attempted to try a natural birth with a structured birth plan. That plan failed and we called Patty to the hospital at 3am, Patty immediately responded and was at our bedside with in a hour. She has a awesome set up and a great personality that is so helpful to the Fathers. This was our first child and Patty gave me the support I needed and reassurance all would be okay. Patty coached with a handful of techniques and is very educated and on point with her techniques which helped my wife stay calm and collected!
After 18 hours of a induced labor the decision was made for a C-Section which led to the birth of a handsome and healthy baby boy. Patty stayed bedside after birth for several hours to make sure all was okay and took beautiful photos that are a true treasure of that special moment.
Patty followed up with us regularly and offers any assistance. She treats you like family and is a dedicated and honest person. I give her the highest recommendation and know that she is a sincere, honest and compassionate woman that offers a service that no one can match.
If your having a baby I would’nt go in alone! Please call Patty as you will glad you did! She’s Awesome!!
When anyone asks me how I liked my experience delivering my 3rd baby with the help of a doula I always tell them that Patty was amazing!
I've always wanted to deliver my babies without medication or medical intervention but was unable to with my first two children. I decided to seek the support of a doula for my 3rd baby. My midwife recommended I use Patty as my doula and I am so glad that she did.
Patty was absolutely essential in being able to achieve my goal of having an unmedicated labor and delivery. She was there for every contraction and each technique she used, whether big or small, provided me with the help and encouragement I really needed.
Patty is passionate about her work as a doula and it really shows in her dedication to providing the support that you need during labor and delivery.
In short, Patty was a huge blessing to me and my family!
Patty was worth her weight in gold! My husband and I would both highly recommend her. She met with us twice before the birth of our son and once afterwards to check in on us. She even stayed when I had to have an emergency csection and helped out once I had returned from the pacu. Patty really enjoys what she does, and it really shows.
My sister-in-law Patty is a wonderful doula. She added such a warm and peaceful atmosphere to my birth.
Before I went into labor, we were talking about my vision for my birth and she wanted to make sure that those plans happened. When I felt tired and worn out she was quick to come to my rescue. She suggested massage to release some of the pain I was experiencing. To have someone who is knowledgeable in the subject when your mind cannot focus is priceless. She was always by my side bringing me things I needed even before I asked. She even made some valuable suggestions and was a great support in some of my post-partum struggles.
Patty is truly passionate about being a doula and has incredible dedication to her clients. We had a wonderful experience and her niece had the best possible person by her mommy's side.
When I called Patrycja to ask for her support during a birth of my daughter I knew right away that I contacted the right person. As a nurse I asked her many questions and Patrycja's answers made me feel very comfortable with her knowledge, experience, and passion for her profession. I also had a chance to get to know her a little bit closer as she agreed to join me in hypnobaby classes for 6 weeks. When the right time came, she was there for me with all her soul and all her heart. I can not imagine giving a birth to my daughter without her! She did not only implemented all the posdible comforting measures during my labor but she also helped me to stay focused and relaxed. Patrycja also took many amazing pictures of those few most important hours of my life for which I am very greatfull. I am recommending her services to every women caring a baby under the heart! Patrycja is an amazing person who will make your birth experience very unique and the most wonderful one.
Patty was amazing before, during and after my birth. She was very patient and calm and provided me with almost a safe haven. She talked me through my contractions and kept me calm and focused. I would definitely recommend her to family and friends and if I were to have another child, she would be the first person I contact for doula services. If you want someone who is passionate and has you and your baby’s best interest at heart, she is the one to call. I also absolutely loved the pictures that were taken during my labor and after my son’s birth.
Patty (Patrycja) is amazing! As soon as my husband and I met with Patty when we were searching for doulas, we knew she was a perfect match. When I went into labor my husband reached out to Patty, she knew exactly what to do to keep he and I calm. That was just the beginning. While at the hospital Patty brought aromatherapy to keep me calm And set the tone in the room. She kept me on track with my plan, helped guide me, my husband, and even my mom throughout the entire labor. I wouldn't have been able to do it without Patty. At one point I began to question myself. Patty reassured me and reminded me of my strength. Because of Patty's constant reassurance and amazing support, I had a successful, intervention free birth. My husband and I are so grateful for Patty's support! We will definitely be calling Patty for our next baby, when that time comes! I highly recommend Patty!!!
I've known Patrycja for over a decade now. During this time I watched her become a wonderful mom of two boys. I also witnessed how passionate she is about everything that involves children starting from pregnancy, delivery, nursing, and kids' development . At that moment I knew she is going to make a great dula. Patrycja is a very warm, knowledgeable and compassionate person and she is the best support system a mom-to-be can ask for. I personally experienced it when she was with me during my both pregnancies and I can't thank her enough for that. She always made me feel like I was doing the best job as a new mom, especially during the first months when I was trying to establish the breastfeeding. Patrycja is not only a wonderful dula but a truly wonderful person, who I can gladly call my friend.
Patrycja is amazing! I would recommend her to every woman considering a doula!
Being a first time mama, I was nervous and had lots of self doubt over pregrancy, birth and breastfeeding.
Patty was there to listen, support and help me with any questions and doubts I had. She is very passionate about empowering women in the childbirth process and beyond - she made me feel more confident and helped me trust my instincts & do what I thought was best.
She was very positive, optimistic and there for me through the emotional roller coaster, especially during my postpartum experience. She was also wonderful breastfeeding support, thanks to the enouragement and support I got from Patrycja, I was able to breastfeed for much longer than I originally anticipated.
Patty is an amazing source of support and inspiration. She is reliable, trustworthy, knowledgeable and makes you feel so comfortable and confident! She encouraged me to be confident with my decisions and I will always be thankful to her for that.
