Testimonial for Javiera Sobarzo

I highly recommend Javiera Sobarzo if you are looking for a doula.  We interviewed Javiera at the end of our second trimester and immediately appreciated how great of a listener Javiera was and the types of services she offered as a doula.  Since this was our first child, we had no idea what to expect in a doula.  Javiera came to our home throughout our third trimester to help us develop our birth plan and to teach me prenatal yoga in the backyard.  What I loved is she guided us through the birth process very slowly, listening carefully to our goals and concerns.  She never pushed us towards a specific birth plan, but rather gave us lots of information to consider and helped guide us as we made decisions about our birth plan.  When we were faced with a c-section after trying to a vaginal labor, we were at ease with our birth plan changing course because of how well Javiera prepared us for the day.  We had a healthy, beautiful baby girl and Javiera was so respectful in giving us whatever space we needed during the labor a immediately after - she was always there to support in whatever way we needed during our entire 30 plus hour labor.  The nurses also asked for her card after the birth because they were so impressed!

After our birth, Javiera came to the house, made us amazing food and tea, and continued to help in providing us with information during the newborn stage and our transition as parents.  From breastfeeding to self-care during the post-partum "fourth trimester", Javiera was available by text and email to provide support.  She also had a wonderful closing ceremony that was the perfect ending to a beautiful post-partum experience.

Javiera still reaches out four months later to hear about how things are going.  We have had her come by for postnatal yoga as I continue to heal.  All in all, the experience is above and beyond what I could have expected from doula services.
