Testimonial for Victoria Michonski CD, HCHI, CLC

Victoria was my doula by chance; she was a back-up for the doula I had been working with and who was unable to be there the day my daughter was born. Although I was disappointed that my original doula couldn't make it, it was actually a bit of a blessing in disguise because Victoria was AMAZING. I met her for the first time as I was in the midst of some major rushes on the floor of my living room, but she jumped right in and made both my partner and I feel a whole lot calmer and comfortable. Amazingly, I felt I could trust her the moment I saw her. My partner initially had no strong opinion about involving a doula in our birth experience, but if you ask him now, he will tell you how amazing Victoria is and how worthwhile it is to have a doula on your side. Her gentle touch, calming and encouraging words, knowledge, and support were exactly what we needed. She knew when to speak up and advocate on my behalf in the delivery room, and when to let the doctors do what they needed to do when the situation looked worrisome. I credit her, in part, for helping me have the mostly natural, unmedicated birth that I had hoped for. Victoria stayed with me after delivery for several hours and helped me nurse my daughter for the first time. She continues to be a source of information and support when I ask for advice or have questions. I will say it again: she is amazing.
