Testimonial for Anna Sutkowski

Having my first baby during the COVID-19 pandemic was not ideal. Having Anna as my doula was the best decision I made during my pregnancy. When I was uncertain of a decision she would help me weigh the pros and cons and feel good about it. She was always there via text or phone call when I had a question or just needed to talk. During our doula sessions the first thing she would ask was how my husband and I were doing mentally, as a couple and as individuals. Our sessions weren't strictly about me but also about my husband as well, if he had any questions, how he could support me, ect. Because of our sessions we felt really confident about giving birth. During labor she was there for us to help couch us through each contraction. Because of the coronavirus I was only allowed to have one person in the hospital with me so obviously I had my husband there, but Anna was there virtually, constantly checking in (without being annoying). At one point during birth I was crying uncontrollably, the nurses were only focused on the medical stuff and just telling me not to cry. My husband called Anna and without needing to be told what I needed from her she started talking to me and calming me down, encouraging me, and suggested things that my husband could do to help me as well.

After giving birth she met with my husband and I to help process the birth and life after birth. We really liked this because we really didn't know what to think about our birth story. Helping us process life after birth was great because we didn't know what to expect and to know that we had someone to talk to and who would listen was really refreshing. She would not give her opinion or tell you how to do something unless you asked for it. I am truly extremely grateful for her, without her I honestly don't think I could have done it.
