Chans Thomas

Sanyika was exactly what my husband and I needed our birthing experience! Prior to going into labor, we sat and had a conversation to cover all the specifics concerning the big day. Sanyika was very accommadating and opened up her schedule in case our little one arrived early. Well, I went into labor a week early and she was one call away, ready to be there for us! After a few hours in the hospital with little to no pain, she showed up shortly after midnight to assist me. It was right on time because that's when the pain began. Through the entire process, she was a source of comfort, encouragement and strength. She used techniques to minimize the pain from my contractions and was present: fully invested physically and emotionally through the entire process. She also shared the experience of welcoming our little girl into the world and held her for the first time shortly after. If you're looking for a doula who is the real deal, use Sanyika! She created a less stressful environment for me to welcome life and I am truly thankful she was there.

I loved having Sanyika as my doula. She was by my side for both of my pregnancies. She was the comforting voice I needed and the held my hand when I needed it most. She was also my spokeswoman. Prior to delivery Sanyika and I sat down and discussed my birth plan in detail. I was able to confide in her and tell her what I was afraid, excited about, what I needed and wanted most. I loved having Sanyika at my side and recommend her to anyone that is interested in having a doula.

I had an awesome 1st delivery experience with Sanyika as my doula. She provided the upmost assistance for preparing my body for delivery. During my time delivering, we performed a variety of techniques that faciliated the birthing process. Although I had both my mother and my husband in the labor room, it was very benefical to have Sanyika there for the guided support. She was constantly on her toes providing any additional items that we needed to be comfortable. Also she took some wonderful pictures and videos throughout the process. I highly recommend her as a doula.

Choosing Sanyika as my doula was the best decision I’ve ever made. As a first time mom, I had no prior knowledge of what to expect and was nervous about the process. Sanyika’s expertise coupled with her impeccable personality truly put me at ease. She knew the right positions to put me in to manage my pain. During labor I had difficulties pushing. Sanyika’s calming and reassuring presence got me through it. She always made herself available for my questions whether it be breastfeeding or postpartum issues. Having her by my side through this experience was truly a blessing and amazing. I wholeheartedly recommend Sanyika to anyone looking for a nurturing and professional Doula.
