Testimonial for Victoria Calleja

I always thought you get a Doula only if you feel like your partner/couch won’t be able to provide the support you need, I have a very supportive husband, therefor for my first delivery I didn’t get a Doula and I had a very difficult and traumatic experience, I spent most of the time fighting the medical team to avoid interventions. For my second birth I contacted Victoria, we met and she explained her role in the birth process, she was nice, warm, understanding and very knowledgeable. Both me and my husband felt she was a good fit for us. She came to our home twice to talk about different aspect and to create a birth plan which in the process opened my eyes to so many aspects I wasn’t even aware of the first time.Victoria periodically texted me to see how I’m doing and if I need anything, there was an open line of communication and support during the pregnancy.When the time came she was immediately available for me, I texted her during the night and in 4:30am she came over when I felt I really needed her, she attended to my needs and pain, was come and supportive, she gave my husband the room to participate as much as we both wanted. She helped accelerating the process with natural methods. When it was time she suggested we should go to the hospital and we went together she helped mitigate between us and the medical team and explained the different stages we were in. My birth was supper fast and baby was naturally out in 2 hours with no interventions!!! during that time Victoria helped relief the pain, rotate the baby who was looking up, maintain my mental strength and instructed me during pushing.I had a really good second experience and I feel like most of it was due to her presence.She visited me at home after birth and made the placenta peels which worked like Magic.

I would recommend using Victoria’s help as a Doula to anyone who asks, she was incredible and we appreciate her being a part of our experience.
