Testimonial for Victoria Michonski CD, HCHI, CLC

Victoria was truly exceptional and we were so lucky to find her! I was very nervous about labor - I suppose every one is - but all the women in my family had 24 hour + labors with their first babies and several had to be induced. I very much wanted a natural birth and thought it would never be possible with a day long labor. But then Victoria came into my life. She was essential even before the labor began recommending books, baby positioning techniques, and was a wealth of information that was thoroughly researched! She was such a calming influence even before I went into labor.

My water actually broke before labor and if Victoria wasn't there I probably would have rushed to the hospital and had a very different birth story - but instead she calmly went through my options - never telling me what to do but simply informing me of my choices. I ended up deciding to stay home and wait for labor to start - which it did only a few hours later. After that Victoria was on the phone with my husband, talking him through everything. I know it was because of her that I was able to stay home as long as I did, which proved absolutely essential in my goal to have a natural labor! She came to our home and even drove me to the hospital! Once there, she knew exactly where to go, who to talk to, and everything went so smoothly! She was our advocate when we needed one. She knew hospital policy and also knew what I wanted and made sure that pushy nurses didn't step all over us. In the end, I was able to have the birth I wanted I know that Victoria was a large part of the reason.

She was essential with helping get my baby to latch and get started nursing. The lactation nurses were no help and Victoria patiently sat with me for what must have been several hours trying to get a latch. I didn't realize how essential that would be in the coming days!

I can't recommend Victoria enough! She is truly phenomenal!
