Testimonial for Kimberly Muhammad, C-FSD

I am so grateful for the birthwork Kim provided for my fourth labor. I had been really hesitant about consulting a doula because I was very self conscious about having anyone in the delivery room besides my husband. However this time around I was having a number of complications with my back while carrying and I was worried that I'd have to go through the nightmare of getting yet another epidural or worse have a c section if I didn't get some extra help. To add to my anxiety our son was breech up until a month before my due date. We enlisted Kim's services through a family friend during my second trimester and she was WONDERFUL. Her approach is very holistic. She informed me of different exercises and activities I could do to manage my pain naturally. She checked on me regularly regarding my nutrition and water intake. If I was down or having a rough time I knew I could call Kim just to talk about my pregnancy or anything for that matter.

The day I went into labor, or thought I was happened to be the day her son was attending his senior prom. I hated to call her away from her own family commitment. However, once we arrived at the hospital and my midwife informed us that there were complications  and I was in false labor but would need to be induced   I looked at my husband and said, "call Kim".At 2:30 am with her doula bag of awesomeness and a big smile she was there and I was so relieved.

After I was induced we worked for over 24 hours laboring naturally. She and my husband took turns keeping me comfortable. I held firm in my decision not to have an epidural and refused medication for as long as I could. When the contractions came we just rocked out on a birthing ball with some essential oils, heating pads and my Prince Playlist. It was a long difficult labor but her wealth of knowledge and experience got me through and I was able to deliver a healthy baby boy vaginally without further complications.
