Testimonial for Vickie Fernandez Wint

There are no words to express how grateful I am and always will be for Vickie. She is one of the most genuine, supportive, and gifted people I have ever met. She was born to do the work she does, and it is obvious how much she loves it. Vickie has said multiple times that she was honored to work with my partner and me—but the honor and privilege was all ours.

I was initially unsure if I wanted a doula. I’m a fairly private person, and I had the perhaps misguided notion that only a certain type of person—someone more committed to “all-natural-everything” (?)—would seek out doula services. (I thought natural childbirth seemed ideal, but I also wasn’t opposed to an epidural, for example.) Now that I’ve been through the indescribable process that is childbirth, I cannot imagine her not being there. We had some scary surprises during labor, but Vickie’s incredibly soothing presence, as well as her deep, practical knowledge of birthing techniques, made us feel so, so much better during the wildest twenty-four hours of our lives. I will never forget how Vickie kept leaping up from her tiny stool in the hospital room to hold my hand and count down my breaths.  She was my sounding board as I processed difficult news out loud and my nonstop cheerleader when I could have easily broken down. When she was there to meet our beautiful, healthy, happy son in the delivery room, I felt as though she were his second mother. She just made EVERYTHING better. He came to us, in large part, because of her. 

I now know that the type of birth you want and the kind you end up having can be polar opposites, despite whatever you try to control and decide during pregnancy. But that’s ok—and I feel that way because of Vickie and the confidence and peace she helped instill. 

We love you, Vickie, and we are forever indebted to you.
