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

I can write a book on how wonderful Dara is. Keeping this to a paragraph is very difficult. In a nutshell, I absolutely, 1000%, recommend Dara. Her depth of knowledge in this field is vast. She will never push her beliefs on you. Instead, she will work with you to make your perfect birth plan. She advocates for your birthplace in the labor / delivery room. My birth did not go how I had imagined it to go. I had to be strapped to a machine for my son’s heartbeat to be monitored. Laboring in bed isn’t ideal. Dara was my voice and advocated for me to be able to get out of bed and labor the way I needed to in the moment. She helped me with exercises to help with labor. Because of her, I was able to take a warm shower with my husband to help sooth contractions. She helped clear my sinuses when I couldn’t breathe. She coached me in my breathing during my time of panic. If it weren’t for her, the nurses would have likely kept me in bed and eventually would have taken me in for a C-section. Instead, I was able to deliver a healthy boy vaginally, just as I had wanted. Hiring Dara was the best decision I had made for going into labor.  I plan to gift my sister with Dara’s expertise and love when she is going into labor. There’s no doubt Dara will be there when I birth my second child. She is amazing. Be careful, she will steal your heart.
