Testimonial for Vicki Bloom

We found Vicki here and fell in love with her holistic approach. Due to the pandemic, we met through zoom. Nonetheless, we got a good sense and knew Vicki was the right doula for us. She is communicative, reliable, open and very knowledgeable about the birthing process and postpartum care/healing. Vicki provided us with techniques and information to prepare for birth throughout the months. 

We are grateful for everything but there is something she taught us, which we never imagined would be so crucial during the first day of our son’s life. She taught us about the SNS system (suplemental nursing system). However, knowing about this system, saved us from having to give formula to our little one who wasn’t peeing for first 36 hours of life. The hospital was pushing us to give him formula but thanks to Vicki, we knew about the SNS system and we also knew our hospital provided Donor’s Milk.
Vicki is a pleasure to spend time with and clearly has a passion for empowering families with balanced information and confidence.

Having Vicki at my very long and painful birth was one of the best gifts of my birthing experience. Vicki showed up with a birthing ball, guided me through helpful positions; gave me peppermint essential oil when I was nauseous and vomiting and, guided me in using sounds when all I wanted was to scream. Most importantly, she coached me and was instrumental in my pushing stage. I pushed for a long time and she reminded me constantly to use the right parts of my body.

Vicki was also instrumental in helping my partner and myself make decisions throughout the birthing journey. We discussed everything that happened before it happened and that made me feel very safe. She is very good at helping you see the bigger picture. Despite a long and painful birth, I think of my birth experience as beautiful and empowering one thanks to the support we received from Vicki.
