Testimonial for Fatima Abdallah

We chose Fatima as the doula for our first child almost two years ago. She wasn't certified then but she more than made up for it with her own experiences, knowledge, and wisdom. During my last trimester, she met with myself and the hubby to go over my birth plan, calming methods during child birth, and just general information on how my birth experience will be.

As my pregnancy continued past the due date, and the OB was pushing to induce, Fatima kept advicing me not to indue. When the labor finally began at midnight, I was texting her the signs and and was advicing me to keep track of the contraction times and what to do. She then arrived at my house around 11 AM to walk me through my contractions and advice me not to go to the hospital as I would be even less comfortable there and my contractions were still spaced out too far. She had me walking around, massaged my back while having me lay on top of a birthing ball, brought essential oils with her which she had running to help soothe me, talked with me to distract me from the pain and walked me through breathing techniques to assist with the pain. After about 16 hours of this, we finally headed to the hospital as my contractions were about 2-3 min spaced. There, she stayed me with until I gave birth to my baby son at 2:00 AM. She played soothing music for me and provided me with dates to help pull me through.

I can honestly say that I couldn't have done it without Fatima's assistance. She really provided me and my husband with assistance that we were lacking/too inexperienced to know about. When the time comes, I will definitely be acquiring her services for our second child.
