Testimonial for Fatima Abdallah

Our experience with Fatima as our doula was incredible. She gave us a wealth of information and tools to guide us through the entire process throughout the third trimester and through postpartum. Looking back I know my wife and I would have felt a lot less prepared and confident during labor had we not partnered with Fatima. She clearly laid out the benefits and risks of the various choices we had to make and taught me how to administer pain-management techniques to make my wife feel more comfortable. Fatima offered so many materials and resources - including books, websites, relaxation tools and more - that were immensley helpful to us. At the hospital, at times a felt a little overwhelmed or lost until Fatima arrived - I was so relieved to see her and suddenly felt more confident as she guided me and Sonia through the process. She stayed with us for many hours until after our daughter was born, acting as a firm advocate in our corner and communicating with nurses and doctors to make sure my wife and baby were getting the right treatement. At one point, when it was clear to her that my wife was ready to start pushing (though one of the nurses didn't seem to agree), she insisted on calling in the doctors and sure enough my wife was 10 inches dilated and ready. She made us aware of safer options we had for the labor induction (which was something not explained to us by the doctors). In the ensuing weeks, Fatima came back to our house to check in and prepared two delcious meals (and lactation treats for my wife) for us. She also wrote a very touching, heart-felt letter to our daughter about her birth which we are excited to show to her when she gets older. I can't recommend Fatima enough. She was an essential partner in this amazing journey of bringing our daughter into the world.
