Testimonial for Dawn Oliver CDI(TDA)

My experience with Dawn as my doula was so amazing, I have had a hard time putting into words (as my son is turning 1 in 2 more weeks!)

From the first time my husband and I met with Dawn for our first consultation all the way through post-partum and helping with breastfeeding, she was amazing and a blessing. I truly feel like I could not have done it without her. Dawn takes the time to get to know you and what you do and do not want as far a labor and delivery “plan”. She was my advocate, my rock and a sense of calm I don’t think my husband could have maintained.

I wanted to have a water birth, however the hospital I delivered in doesn’t allow water births so we modified! We set up the pool in my living room at home for me to labor in before heading to the hospital and I am so grateful I did because I didn’t progress very quickly. With her guidance and different pain management techniques I was able to do most of my laboring at home. I went into the hospital about 1230-1am and had my son at 5:42am.

Once we were at the hospital, Dawn knew that my goal was to not receive any pain medicine. She helped me with different positions to manage the pain naturally and to encourage my baby to drop into the birth canal. Dawn was my rock with helping me to breathe to stay calm between contractions and during contractions (before pushing). Dawn maintained a level of cool and calm you’d think no one could during this whole process which I believe genuinely helped me stay as calm as possible as well.

I will say that I will NEVER have a baby without Dawn by my side! Weather you have a natural plan, medicated plan or end up having a c-section, the amount of support Dawn gives you cannot be matched. I recommend Dawn to every single woman I know in the Low-country!
