Testimonial for Renée Ahmadi MA CD (DONA)

I met Renee at a pre-natal yoga class at 37 weeks pregnant. I had just moved to Victoria and was preparing to deliver my second child, and I knew I wanted another home birth (my first was born on the Mainland with a different birth team). Before that yoga class even ended I knew I wanted Renee to be with me for the birt of my second!

She did a two home visits including a trial-run of labour and birth positions using props and furniture from my home. This really helped me to learn what positions I might take during labour and practice them with my partner. While preparing for my birth, Renee was very attentive, gentle, creative and encouraging. She knows so much about labour and delivery and it was very reassuring to both me and my partner to have her calm and positive energy while we mentally prepared for birth.

When I went into labour, Renee spent the night with us at our home and supported me physically and mentally through the intense process. On top of being creative and positive she is big and strong; she supported my weight in multiple positions through intense contractions when I needed physical pressure, friction or just to be held up. Throughout, she supported my breathing and calm vocalizing so I could re-direct my energy and not lose my voice or become too "in my head". She made excellent use of several yoga postures and flows while I was contracting, helping me use what I already knew in my body to keep moving through the contrqactions and "out the other side"!

When it was all done, Renee prepared food, tidied up, and left us with our infant once she was sure we were ready for that. In the following days she was attentive and supportive with breastfeeding and other post-partum issues. She even brought us a delicious lasagna!

She is a spectacular human, and a force of nature and she was exactly the right person for our second home birth! Thanks Renee.
