Testimonial for Dianne Liwanag CD(DONA)

The unknowns of delivery are daunting for first time parents and I wasn't the exception. How will I manage pain? Is it possible to have additional support during a pandemic?

 
As my husband and I sought answers to these questions Dianne proposed other questions to us to consider: How do I want my spouse to support me? What is my ideal birth plan? What interventions am I considering and which ones are a last resort? These are very personal choices and Dianne supported us fully through every decision we made and explained how she could assist in making our ideal birth a reality.
She delivered books I requested from her personal library and sent me articles, links and updates as she received them.


Dianne taught my husband tension release massage techniques that we used in our third trimester. 
Dianne assisted me through every contraction whether it was massage, using the exercise ball, a peanut ball, guiding me through breathing, utilizing a Rebozo or simply distracting me by telling me a story.  
Dianne held my hand and calmed me when our baby was in distress and we had to go undergo unplanned interventions and she stood by our side from the moment we arrived at the hospital until we were moved to the recovery room.


Dianne is affable, empathetic, knowledgeable, kind hearted and we were beyond lucky to have her at our side for the birth of our son.
