Dominika was like an angel, fairy godmother, a best friend, a sister, a mother! I did not know how I would manage after having my baby, with a four-year-old daughter and a two-year-old son… She was a dream come true. I did not know how a post partum doula could be a life saver- especially a caring one like Dominika! If you have anyone who would like to get you a baby gift – or just to treat yourself to a smooth recovery, this is the answer! From the moment Dominika walked in, I was glad I had called for help and I knew that she would be the answer to my prayers. She can offer you and your family the support you will need at this most special time, which can otherwise be a difficult adjustment period. She is very positive and encouraging; she is willing to help in any way possible…. from the holding the newborn baby, to older siblings, to household chores, setting up a nursery, organizing, preparing food if needed, running errands, and emotional support. She is there for you, lovingly and gently! She is excellent with children and my 2 year old fell in love with her. As a young mother herself, she has personal experience and understands what you are going through. She is also very knowledgeable about newborn care and can patiently walk you through nursing, baby wearing, skin care, and self-care during your post partum recovery. Don’t hesitate- you will love her! I would definitely call her again for the next time I have a baby!
i met Diminika a few months before giving birth to my third baby and immediately felt comfortable with her. She was very informative and helped ease my anxietety with my all natural birth plan. I Went into labor in the evening, and labored all night. Dominika came to the hospital as soon as i called her. I ended up being discharged and told to come back in a few hours. Dominika came back to my house at which point the labor got very intense. She helped me breathe through the contractions, pressed pressure points that eleviated pain, and labored in water (which was really helpful). My son ended up being born on my living room floor with Dominka by my side. She then came to the hospital with us and helped post partum. Overall, my experience with her was amazing and i contribute my great birth experince to her knowlenge, patience, and kindness.
