Me and my sister hired Dinah as our labour doula (we were 4 months apart pregnant) and could not have been happier with her service. She was a tremendous help before, during and after delivery of our kids. Her wealth of knowledge and passion for her profession made it a pleasure interacting with her. She also came a few times before delivery to answer our questions in regards to our pregnancies or upcoming deliveries.
I delivered my son at Mount Sinai Hospital and Dinah played a huge role in helping us to achieve the birth I had envisioned. She was by my side the entire time, gave me positive energy and reassurance to succeed in my desire for an unmedicated birth. She helped me to visualize the “finish line” and set milestones throughout the whole process. I was able to put my faith in her hands and follow her guidance as it relates to changing positions, food/fluid intake and progress. It made me feel at ease knowing that she was there to help me make the right decisions and move things along. In addition, she was a great help for my husband. I must say he was very happy to have her at my side. A few moments after birth Dinah asked for one of our phones and ended up taking some awesome pictures immediately after our son was born. It was SO sweet of her and I absolutely treasure the pictures she took. She also kept a timeline of our events and wrote a beautiful letter addressed to my son with the story of his birth. I will read it to him when he grow up))) Thank you Dinah!!!
As I said my sister also used Dinah and was also very-very happy. I won’t share all of her details, because they aren’t mine to share, but I will say that I am so glad that we got to share this incredible adventure with her. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a doula.
"Dinah was a very important support for us during the birth of our daughter. She knew exactly what to do and always had encouraging words when we needed it. In the beginning we thought that just the two of us would be enough and that we knew what to do after all the classes we took and all the books we read, but we are so glad that we decided to have her with us. During the labour experience is hard to think about anything but she was there to help us with compressions, massages, words and the most important is that she kept us calm and confident that we would have a wonderful birth experience and we did it! Thanks Dinah for sharing with us these very special moments of our lives".
Raissa, Daniel and little Milly.
