Testimonial for Dara DeSoto ,CD(DONA), CLEC, Student Midwife

Dara is a phenomenal Doula! From the first day we met, I knew she was a wonderful match for me. It’s very obvious (right off the bat) that she comes with a lot of knowledge and experience. She had great suggestions in regards to any question I asked (and I asked many ??), and always eased my worried mind with her positive outlook.

When the actual day to give birth arrived, she went above and beyond. Dara is just the perfect amount of assertive and nurturing and I know it’s just what I needed. She pulled out every comfort measure and made sure I was staying fed and hydrated throughout her time with me. I can say with 100% confidence, that I would have been lost without her support during my birth.

Some may worry that their significant other wouldn’t play as much of a roll while having a doula near by, but I found it to be quite the opposite. Dara encouraged my husband to be involved (and even hands on) where he could and made him feel more confident while in the delivery room. When he had his own set of fears, she allowed him to talk through them and listened with an emphatic ear. He was so glad that she was there for both of us.

The days following my labor, she checked in to make sure my son and I were doing well. She even came and supported me with lactation advice when things got off to a tough start. When I needed further advice in regards to my own recovery, she offered suggestions and reffered me to specialists that I should talk to.  7 weeks later, she still checks in with me here and there to see how we are doing. Dara has a way of always making you feel valued and appreciated.

My hope is that Dara will join me during my next birthing experience, if I should be so lucky to have another.  I have reffered her to many people and will continue to do so. I truly believe she is one of the best in the business!
