Testimonial for Kari Yazejian, CPLD, BA

I met Kari because God had a plan. I knew her sister, when I was pregnant I asked her for advice and more info about Doulas, she gave me Kari's number and I texted her. We met at a coffee shop. This was our first baby and we didn't know what to plan for or expect, other than go to our doctor's appointments and follow what they told us. We met with Kari, and from the moment we met, I felt an instant connection, she was kind and patient. We ask her to be my doula the very next day, we didn’t want to chance not having her on our birth date. She came to our house a few times before my due date and we talked, she gave me advise and she would always check on me. Fast-forward a few months and on my due date we were all at the hospital, I loved that she was always so calming and she would always guide my husband for him to be my main support, my husband appreciated everything Kari taught him because instead of feeling like he was unable to help, he was able to be there with me through the contractions, the tears, the OMG I can’t do this, and Kari was right there to jump in, to calm me down and help me focus. She was open to medicine and explained what the nurses didn’t, I was able to get to 7 cm and then got the epidural, she was on top of it, she would make sure I was rotating every now and then, checking mine and babies’ heartbeat, and when it came down to pushing, man was there to cheer me on, to help me focus on my breathing and to take some pictures, we didn’t even think about that because you don’t think about that at the very moment. I was happy to have a natural birth (the same day there were 4 c-sections at the same time I was in labor) and I wish they would have had Kari by their side, on their team, to help them like she helped us. Our son was born, healthy, and I was up and walking the very next day. Kari came to the house a few days after and help with breastfeeding, she was our guardian angel. We love her!!
