Testimonial for Vickie Fernandez Wint

Choosing Vickie as our doula was one of the best decisions my wife and I made during our pregnancy and birthing journey. From our initial meeting, Vickie answered our challenging interview questions with profound thoughtfulness, introspection and wisdom. We immediately felt very connected to her, and felt totally comfortable reaching out to her to process our anxiety about the birthing process. Vickie has the capacity to both validate feelings and provide information based in evidence that allowed us to make the right decisions for our family. Vickie was an integral part of my birth process and I can’t imagine having gone through it without her. From being induced to many hours of labor to ultimately having a C-section, Vickie was with us throughout and was an immeasurable source of support for both my wife and I. She was incredibly in tune with our needs and knew when to jump in to give me a massage, when to give words of encourgament, when to distract with a story, and when to step back and let my wife and I be together. There is no ego in her work- she is completely in service of you and your needs during this intensely vulnerable process. She was incredibly helpful in processing decisions in the moment, not telling us what to do but helping us to make the right decision for us. When I ended up having to have an emergency C-section, we were grateful to have her calming and supportive presence both before and after the surgery.

I would recommend Vickie as a doula with absolutely no reservations! I should also note that we highly recommend Vickie to anyone in LGBTQ+ community. She was clearly mindful to use inclusive language in both her forms and in conversation. My wife and I always felt totally comfortable while working with her.
