Testimonial for Deborah Badran, CD(DONA)

Deborah was my doula for 2 of my deliveries. I would have used her a 3rd time as well if I had stayed in the city. She was unbelievable in both deliveries. My first son was a very difficult delivery and I truly believe I would have ended up with a cesarean delivery if she wasn’t there. She helped guide me through different pushing positions for 3 loooooong hours and we finally found one that worked and I was able to get my son out. She had relationships with the nurses and staff at NYU where both my sons were delivered and she asked them questions and noticed things that I never would have thought about. My IV wasn’t dripping properly in my second delivery and she brought it the attention of my nurse. Had she not noticed that I wouldn’t have received my antibiotic in time for the delivery. She helped me do things that I never would have wanted my husband to be involved in. She also answered every ridiculous question I had during my pregnancy. She came over to our apartment after the delivery of my first son to help me with breast-feeding. I struggled with that for a long time, but stuck to it because of her help. She noticed how congested he was in the hospital after his delivery, due to the fact that he was in the birth canal for so long and she made sure he was suctioned over and over so he could breath more clearly and nurse. She was so calm and comforting and really helped me relax during the deliveries. I felt like I was in really good hands having her there and I would definitely recommend her to anyone that is looking for a doula.
