Testimonial for Victoria Michonski CD, HCHI, CLC

My husband and I feel so fortunate that Victoria was our doula. She is incredibly supportive, knowledgeable, and warm and I cannot imagine how we would have gotten through labor and delivery without her. From our first meeting, we were immediately put at ease by her extensive knowledge about childbirth and how the hospital works. She helped me formulate questions to ask my OB as well as helped my husband and I come up with a plan that made the daunting process of labor seem manageable. And, when that plan went out the window because I was induced, Victoria helped us prepare for the induction and was by our side to make sure I was as comfortable as possible. She's basically a comfort measures wizard. Victoria would appear as if out of nowhere with exactly what I needed in the moment - whether it was juice, a cool washcloth on my neck, or pressure on my back. Victoria also helped my husband help me, such as by showing him where he could get me water and ice. During the pushing stage, she was a fantastic coach and remained super calm and encouraging even as it became clear that things were not progressing as they should. I ultimately had a c-section, but feel good about the outcome because with Victoria's help, I felt that I did everything I could. And, Victoria even talked to our families, who were in the waiting area, about how long the c-section would take, which was very appreciated and put them at ease as well. At our postpartum visit, Victoria was full of helpful suggestions about feeding and how to find support as a new mom while on maternity leave. In short, Victoria is amazing!
