Testimonial for Dawn Oliver CDI(TDA)

I had never met Dawn until the day I went into labor.  My original doula was supporting another client and Dawn was her backup.  Reflecting on that joyous day, I would not have had it any other way.  When Dawn arrived at my home (I had a planned home birth) she completely changed the dynamic of my labor for the better.  Prior to her arrival I was doing the best I could as a first time mom to stay calm and relaxed with the help of just my husband.  Well despite our efforts my body went into fight or flight mode and I was fighting through each surge.  Once Dawn started supporting me through the surges, I was finally able to relax a bit.

Looking back I'm amazed at how easily she adapted to me and my family as well as with the midwives attending the birth.  Her calm demeanor and obvious expertise helped my labor progress quickly.  Every time I would stray from being calm, all I heard was her calm voice setting me back on track.  She was so helpful in keeping me physically comfortable too with masssage and warmth when needed.

I would highly suggest that anyone looking for calm and sturdy support during their labor to hire Dawn as their doula.  If and when I'm blessed with another child, I will be using her again but now by choice!
