Testimonial for Victoria Calleja

My husband and I used Victoria as our doula after taking her Bradley Method birthing class for our son Josiah. My labor began about 8 in the morning in which I labored at home with just my husband until about 1 when Victoria showed up. Both of us seemed to relax as soon as she got there because we knew we were in good hands. We headed to the hospital around 4-430. Upon arrival Victoria requested that my dilation not be shared with me because I seemed to have mentally blocked my labor the two days previously, which turned out to be a great suggestion. Although I was unaware of this, I was 5 centimeters when we got there. Once in the room I spent a good chunk of time in the shower with scalding hot water on my back to help with the pain. Victoria was incredibly helpful. She not only helped me through each contraction, she also made sure my husband was doing okay and that I knew he was struggling so i could reassure him that I was okay. Once it was time to push she was right there helping me through it with encouraging words and direction. I felt secure and safe knowing that she was there to make sure that my voice was heard despite me not being able to talk at that point in the labor. As soon as my son was born I lost track of everything else but I still knew she was there and that she was ensuring that all my wishes on my birth plan were being upheld. I was blessed with a perfect, healthy baby boy through an amazing natural birth. I truly believe that my experience would not have been as perfect and inspiring had she not been there. Both my husband and I felt expenentially safer and more comfortable in our plan with her being there. We defintiely plan on using her again for all future babies!
