I am so thankful that I had Phylicia at my home birth! She had the energy and supportive nature that I needed to ensure a successful home birth after a previous caesarean. During intense contractions she provided counter pressure on my lower back and also allowed to me squeeze her hand while I was experiencing the intensity of a contraction. She was just what I needed during my birth and I would recommend her to anyone who needs someone who is positive, uplifting, and will be there for you in anyway during one of the most intense events of your life.
HIRE HER. I would have Phylicia as my doula again in a heartbeat. My midwife center birth plan went haywire due to complication, and I ended up anxious in the hospital. I felt like having Phylicia was a suit of armor. She pays attention to your wishes, assures you she’s on your side, and whenever anything came up she’d gently help my husband be sure they were followed.
She‘s also extremely hands on and intuitive. This really is her strong suit. I was moving around all over the place, and she was right there with me, squeezing my hips, helping me figure it out. She’ll talk to you just the right amount, reminding you of the words that give you strength. Sometimes I could do little more than grunt or vaguely indicate what I needed and she knew immediately what to do. Sometimes she‘d know what to do way before me.
I genuinely believe I was able to give birth naturally because of Phylicia. My husband is wonderful and supportive, but you really need a professional and not a loving amateur. If you’re on the fence about a doula in general, as I was, I’m now very grateful I had Phylicia. She’s an excellent, excellent choice, and I recommend her with my whole heart.
