Testimonial for Evana Cooper, BA, CD AMANI

I feel like words cannot convey the amount of, gratitude, appreciation and love I have for Evana! Evana was designated to be my back up doula. My bf and I already knew we vibed with her from the one time we met so we were more than comfortable if a situation could arise. And as circumstance would have it she was called into action after my first doula had a family emergency. Evana made her way in despite Covid regulations to ensure I had support for the delivery of my first child. She came in with so much energy, joy and laughter. I had already been in labor for 40+ hours and her energy was exactly what I needed. I wasn't progressing and the dreaded talk of a c section was starting to be introduced. But Evana, kept saying it's not happening, not to focus on it and that I would have the vaginal delivery I worked and labored so hard for. After a very cathartic/emotional moment between my bf and I that she helped facilitate I was found to be fully dialated. I swear whatever tension or feelings that I had was released and my body was finally able to relax. Thank goodness because the doctor said this was my last check and if I wasn't fully dilated they were going to prep me for a c section! Even with an epidural I had intense hip pain from the babies position. Not only did she hold my leg, but she massaged it and would provide passive movement between my pushes. After I delivered she showed my bf how to handle a newborn as this was his first time. And he still says almost two weeks later that her teaching allowed him to be comfortable handling his son. We are eternally grateful for her support and love! I can't say enough about her! After a 60 hour labor and 1.5 hr of pushing. I can say I honestly look back at my labor and delivery as enjoyable because of her and my first doula!
