Testimonial for Victoria Calleja

Being pregnant for the first time makes you want to do everything right throughout your entire pregnancy. Having several friends that had a doula assist them during labor and delivered at a birthing center made me want to take that route.

I got to know Victoria through her series of her Bradley classes in November 2013. Only being 5-6 months pregnant and not due till March 2014 made me feel like I'd be prepared early before having Derek.

Throughout the classes I felt like I gained a lot of knowledge and felt at ease and not scared of going through a natural non medicated labor. Not only was I learning valuable information, techniques but also caring out a healthy pregnancy due to Victoria's knowledge of healthy eating and lifestyle.

Leading up to my 8th month of pregnancy I had only gained 12 pounds throughout the whole pregnancy. My husband and I got a shocking surprise on February 27th. Halfway to the hospital to get checked for what i thought was a UTI my water broke. Looking back and remembering that early morning I realized the I labored down my son at home by myself with the techniques I learned with Victoria.

As great as a person she was throughout the classes she always made it flexible to take her classes. With this being said she rushed to the hospital to assist me in having my son. In 5 minutes she talked me out of having an epidural after the nurses insisted. She helped me block out the pain, the noises, and any negative distractions surrounding me. Because of her classes I was able to come up with a birth plan that was accepted and followed my the nurses and doctor. With Victoria's help I was able to have my son Derek in 4 hours of being admitted in the hospital.

My husband and I plan on having more children in the future and have asked Victoria to be our doula during the pregnancy and birth of our future children.
