Testimonial for Vickie Fernandez Wint

Vickie was highly recommended by a friend of mine, so I hired her as my doula without thinking twice. I had always planned for an unmedicated labor and delivery, so having a doula by my side seemed ideal to coach me through it. Given this was our first pregnancy, my husband and I had a ton of questions and Vickie was so helpful throughout every step of the way.

My daughter, Silvie, was breech throughout the entire pregnancy and Vickie was so supportive through it all. She reviewed exercises I could do to try and flip her and gave me other recommendations and advice. I eventually attempted an ECV to try and flip her and Vickie was very supportive in helping me make that decision. Unfortunately, the ECV was unsuccessful and Silvie would'nt budge, so I had to have a planned C-section at 39 weeks. Vickie helped me come up with a solid plan for the day of my C-section and went over all the evidence-based practices with me, which I found so helpful. Vickie came to visit us in the hospital a few hours after the C-section and assisted with Silvie's first latch. She brought us beautiful flowers, which was so sweet!

Because I never actually labored, Vickie converted all my labor hours to post-partum visits which were wonderful. She visited me every few weeks post-partum to help with breast-feeding, pumping, newborn care, bottles, preparing for my return to work, and pretty much any other questions I had. At our last post-partum visit, I had all the newborn care and breastfeeding/pumping down pat, so Vickie and I just chatted for the visit which was very nice. 

Overall, my husband and I had a great experience with her. I would highly recommend! Vickie is very knowledgeable and super sweet!
