Aarica attended my birth as a second doula and was a huge help. From holding the hot water on my back in the shower, to fanning me when the room felt like 100 degrees, to encouraging me during the final moments before my daughter was born, she was a huge help! She knew exactly what I needed without having to ask!
Aarica was phenomenal! A natural at soothing and comforting. Once I gave Aarica the call that baby was gonna be on her way, she took no time at all getting to me. This was my 2nd pregnancy and I was induced with pitocin two weeks early due to pregnancy induced hypertension. Pitocin was no fun for me at all. Much harder contractions than the natural ones I had with my first child. To my surprise, i still wanted to try for a natural, drug free birth. Aarica was there with me every step of the way from the slow start to the fast finish! She helped me with breathing and utilized various different massage techniques to help subside the pain of each passing contraction. While we listened to my requested sounds of Phil Collins- "Air Tonight" the hospital room became a very relaxing environment for me because Aarica made sure That I had everything "my way".... She was everything I needed her to be during that time. She actually WAS my "focal point". She was the only person to focus on. Aarica rocked with me and talked me through it every step of the way. I didn' think I could do it anymore and she reminded me I could. I trusted her because I knew she HERSELF had done it before and conquered it! In the end, with all thanks to her I became a strong, confident momma who had her baby natural with no drugs for pain. It was a pain I could have never imagined but it ended up being a truly rewarding experience. Thanks Aarica! You were amazing!
