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

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Dara during the course of our pregnancy and three-day long birth in October of 2018. Dara was the top of our list from the start. She was compassionate, personable, warm, loving and organized.

She completely transformed our hospital birthing room into the most peaceful and soothing space- topped with aromatherapy, tiny led lights and candles (many of the docs commented on how calming it felt).

Our labor was long and grueling and Dara was our birthing superwoman! She helped me labor through one of the most grueling 12 hours. She has a (postively) insane amount of energy and mental strength. She was full of alternative coping methods/ideas, a master of distraction and always kept a positive, professional and upbeat demeanor. She worked extremely well with hospital staff and our nurse even commented that she enjoyed working side by side Dara during her shift. Dara not only provided support for me during my birth, but also to my husband offering advice, recommendations, breaks and gave him small tasks to stay busy and also be supportive.

After our birth we consulted both Dara regarding breastfeeding and found her supportive and informative. If we do it all over again we wouldn’t think twice to bring them back on our next journey. If you decide to work with a birth doula we HIGHLY recommend Dara, a true gem!
