Testimonial for Victoria Michonski CD, HCHI, CLC

My husband and I are thrilled to have had Victoria by our side before, during, and after the delivery of our second child.  She came highly recommended by friends of ours, and we have since bumped into another family who coincidentally had and loved Victoria as their doula.

We did not have a doula for our first son's birth; for our second we felt we needed the added support, especially if my husband would be busy with our older son.  We now don't know how or why we managed without a doula the first time around, or why everyone doesn't always have one by their side!  I am sure it is not just *any* doula that will do the trick, though; Victoria was a great blend of skill, experience, supportiveness, calmness, and flexibility.  I was comfortable that, even though I didn't know exactly what I would want during labor, Victoria would be supportive of it and would "go with the flow".  She has a big bag of tricks, ranging from traditional to new-age, and she's willing to use as few or as many of them as desired.  She understood and anticipated my preferences and needs, and advocated for me perfectly at the hospital.  Before the birth, she helped with preparation and with suggestions for dealing with a late-term complication I was having.  At the post-partum visit, she helped with lactation.  Throughout, she was available to help with questions or concerns via email/phone.

In short, my husband and I had a great experience and highly, highly recommend Victoria.
