On the 24th of January, my life change forever when I received in my arms my baby girl. I was dealing with a lot of stress, and I was grateful to God when I receive the great care of La Belle Doula: Jennifer Michel-Wilson.
At the 39 weeks prego my first doula I had left me , long story short I felt more stress not only because I had a gestational diabetes but because the doctor said to me that my blood pressure was rising and also the we're going to induce me, now you can imagine my situation.
I reached out to Jennifer last minute and she did not hesitate to help meI felt so much better as I could see her love for her job which is a mix of great professionalism and human heart , knowing when to step in and step out in a way that the medical team complimented her on her ethics so much so they granted her request for a 5 minutes delayed cord clamping at a hospital.She made me laugh when I was crying and strength to push out my daughter.
My chances for having a vaginal birth we're slim but once she was there my fears lessen because she was fully equipped(music,oils, birthing techniques and good vibe)we definitely beat the odds because I had being diagnosed with preeclampsia too. In my post-partum period her friendly and always professional self help me step out of baby blues.
A doula is Very Important because even after taking classes ,read books ,getting ready nothing will prepare you to this overwhelming , exhilarating and scaring moment that is giving birth and the first weeks of postpartum. (Please Believe me I so do know what I'm talking about)
Thanks you Jennifer Michel-Wilson aka La Belle Doula for being great at your job and on doing it genuinely and with all your heart.
I am doing great as a new mother and doctor I highly recommend her as a doula
