Testimonial for Vonda Boyd HBPD, HBCE HBPD

I can honestly say I don’t know what I would have done without my doula, Vonda. From the moment I found out I was pregnant I knew wanted low intervention birth. I was scared about the birth, this being my first pregnancy, but I decided to educate myself in relaxation techniques and natural methods to make the process as comfortable as possible. I had heard of the Hypnobirthing program before and was all about taking the course taught by Vonda. It was a lot of fun, it really helped to be able to talk through some of my fears and brought up some good questions I wouldn’t have otherwise thought to ask. I also felt it was a great way to connect with my husband as my birthing partner.
My labor began unexpectedly premature at around 36 weeks. The birth itself was fast but beautiful, there wasn‘t time to prepare or gather anything for my birth kit. When she arrived my baby wasn’t screaming like newborns in the movies, just kind of checking me out with wide, bright eyes. I truly believe she was calm because of the Hypnobirthing and the tranquility of the space she was born into. She was so tiny in my hands, barely five pounds, but she was very aware and rosy.
I was only able to spend a few hours precious hours with my daughter right after the birth before she was transferred to the NICU. Vonda stayed by my side during the admission, and good thing too because I think I was in shock. Helpless can only begin to describe how I felt, I thought I would break her by just touching her little hand once she was hooked up with wires and tubes coming from everywhere. Through the next 21 days in the NICU Vonda remained a constant source of encouragement, knowledge and strength. She went above and beyond to help me and my family through a very difficult start for our baby. And she has been an integral part my daughter blossoming into the wonderful little person she is today.
