Testimonial for Brana Ninkov RN, MSN, CLEC, Birth Doula, BSN Nutrition

Three months ago I was blessed to give birth to a beautiful baby girl. While being pregnant I hesitated a lot whether to use a doula for my birth experience or to rely on the nurses in the hospital. After hearing stories about how stressful the experience can be in the hospital and about how much pressure is for medical interventions that speed up the birth, I decided to give a doula try. I have to say, it was the one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Throughout the whole experience, Brana was there for us. We hired her about 5 months before the due date. She informed and prepared us thoroughly for the whole experience and helped me ease calmly into what is to come. My fears and stress were replaced by excitement and enthusiasm.

The dilevery itself was simply magical. Brana did a wonderful job accompanying us throughout the whole experience. She helped us set the room up based on my wishes, providing a very homey environment. Brana kindly took care of all the details such as candles, dimmmed lights, calm meditative music, the pilates ball that ended up being a life saver. Brana’s calm personality, helped me tremendously to relax, breath and enjoy. I am unsure how she did it, but she truly helped me to be in the “here and now”, and take it all in! instead of suffering from the pain, I found myself welcoming it and even enjoying it in some weird way , while hearing Brana calmly remind me, “with every surge, my baby is coming closer and closer to me..: )

I ended up having my baby girl completely natural, without any intervention. Thanks to Brana being by my side, and all the confidence and knowledge that she gave me, I trusted that I could do it, and I did it. I cannot thank you Brana enough for being there for us and for helping us create such memorable and beautiful experience!
