Testimonial for Renée Ahmadi MA CD (DONA)

Renée was incredible!! This was my second pregnancy/delivery. I was very anxious because I had preclampsia during my first pregnancy, which led to an early delivery via C-section. That experience had left me very nervous and I was worried I would not be able to have a VBAC. I had not enjoyed the delayed post-partum recovery from the surgery and somehow felt I had missed out on an incredible experience, so having a VBAC was very important to me.

I had a very long labour, though most of it was just early labour pains, it was 40 hrs. in total. At the end I was so exhausted, I felt like giving in. I don't think I would have been able to pull through, had it not been for my husband's and Renee's encouragement. Having her there allowed my husband to get some rest, while we waited for things to progress; it allowed me to stay relaxed, and in the end remain focused through the pushing. It really made a big difference!!!

I can't convey the feeling in the room. It was a surreal experience. Thanks to her, my husband and I really connected. She reminded us of our positions, to sinc our breathing; to be with each other. I am infinitly greatful that she was there to help us have a very positive experience. She made me feel strong and confident enough to listen to my body and push through.

Renée was available through out the entire process, to answer any of our questions. She helped us navigate a bit through our emotions and get a clearer picture of what we wanted and what we were willing to give up (because things don't always go as planned). After the birth, it was great to have someone come over, to catch a break, which makes all the difference in the first sleep deprived weeks!!

I really can't say enough or how greatful I am to have had her as our doula. To me, Renée beems with positivity, strength and love and that is what we really wanted and needed with us.
