Testimonial for Vonda Boyd HBPD, HBCE HBPD

Vonda was a very beneficial part of my birth.  I met with her a few times prior to the birth, and her calm presence and willingness to simply listen to my concerns and fears helped to make me ready and fearless when the time came.  My son’s birth was at home, and began rather slowly as my water broke nearly 24 hours before we got labor really moving.  There was no point in having any of my birth attendants waiting around all that time, so I told Vonda I would call her when we were ready.  My midwife advised me once labor finally started to wait until I was farther along before calling anyone else to join me, as the distraction of a new addition to the birth room can stall labor.  This was a good decision for other reasons, because by the time the back labor was beginning to be significant and I was sinking into that dream-like state of half consciousness, it was 3 AM and all that were with me were exhausted.  At that point Vonda came in refreshed and ready to help.  She spent hours pressing on my back with each contraction.  Of all my helpers, she was the most effective at relieving the back labor by pressing on the right place on my back.  I’m sure her hands were very tired by the end.  She stayed with me throughout the whole experience, making suggestions and providing moral support as well.  When my son finally arrived into the world, she stayed with and helped in every way she could until both my son and I were ready to sleep.  She was also a great resource to have after the birth, because she helped connect me with someone to give advice on breastfeeding and placenta encapsulation.  I consider her an important figure during a crucial part of my life.  I highly recommend her to others looking for a birth doula.
