Testimonial for Sanyika Williams

The initial visit was to create my birth plan. The following visit was to practice and prepare for laboring. I had a scheduled induction, so we arranged a time for her to be there. This was my third child, so things progressed quickly. Sanyika was in contact with me the entire time (overnight), and was able to get to the hospital, hours earlier than planned. She came in with her giant bag, and the calmest, sweetest energy. The nursing staff loves her. She dimmed the fluorescent lights and put on beautiful ambient lights. She played music (as previously discussed with me). She was there through every contraction and bathroom trip. After anesthesia, through contractions and readjustments. After two previous deliveries, this one was actually a great experience. Everything went so quickly; I was admitted to the hospital at 2am, medication started 6am, and my daughter was born at 10am. I was cheated with my other two children, as my husband was not actually present, or making everything worse. Sanyika assisted with nursing, getting me drinks, my food, bathroom breaks, the baby... everything. She stayed with me through the night. Prior to Sanyika, I was embarrassed not having my husband there. Sanyika went above and beyond what you would expect of the best husbands. Sanyika also had visits after I was home with the baby. No task was beneath her, as she did laundry, dishes, cleaned up toys, cared for my two year old, tolerated my anxious dog, etc. She held, comforted and burped my newborn, she held and made my two year old feel included. Sanyika even continued to check in with my family, months after the baby was born. I’d absolutely recommend Sanyika the Doula. Super long winded review, but I’d recommend her for sure to single mothers, (it’s definitely worth the expense) but I’d also recommend Sanyika as supplemental to husbands, mothers, sisters, etc.
