Testimonial for Dawn Oliver CDI(TDA)

Thank you again for everything. We can't imagine having gone through this without having you by our side/in our corner throughout it. My sister is expecting in June in NYC, and the first thing we said to her on our first phone call was that she needs to hire a doula. We're now spokespeople for your profession for life. Mum is busy with the baby, but I wanted to write a few things that I found particularly helpful - of course the obvious things, like massaging, tens unit support, etc. were helpful, but I also really appreciated how you helped talk through things with mum - for example when she was debating going off petocin and you very calmly explained that from your point of view, things were progressing, it seemed to be helping, etc. Hearing it from the nurses/doctor were one thing, but it was helpful hearing it from someone who knew our birth preferences, and having a more qualified, thought through opinion than what we ourselves were able to construct in the moment. Also during the final stages I thought you were wonderful at being a little firm, whilst also being incredibly thoughtful and encouraging. I also appreciated that you were available whenever we needed, but gave us our space in the early stages so that we were able to have some alone time before everything changed - having someone aware of personal space (in a situation where there typically isn't much) was very helpful. 


Coming from over seas as we did, we appreciate that you were able to make the time to navigate time differences and technology to Skype with us, and for the support that we received prior to the labour process as well. 


Thank you again for everything, or as we say in Swahili asante sana, tunashukuru.
