Testimonial for Giovonna Clifton

I met Giovanna at 38 weeks pregnant because of my boyfriends aunt. She was really good friends with her and I was in need of a doula after Learning about them in a birthing class. Just the fact that she squeezed me into her busy schedule just shows she truly cares about her patients. Meeting Giovonna for the first time during this pandemic she made me feel very comfortable and eased all of my worry's about going into labor. She educated me in things I had no idea about preparing for that. Now the day I went into labor but didn't know it yet I was texting her and she made sure to make sure I was ok and kept checking up on me. Finally my contractions started to come around 2pm and she had me start timing them until her 411 rule. Finally the time has come at 10pm I texted her my contractions have been every 4-5mins apart lasting 1min long. So she gave me the green light to go to the hospital and she said she will meet me there. She made it there quickly and she made sure to check how I was doing and feeling and what had the doctor told me so far. They decided to move me into the labor and delivery room. Giovanna started helping me through the contractions between walking, yoga ball and counter pressures. So fast forward to 2am I wasn't dilating so the doctors wanted to break my water or give me Pitocin and I truly didn't want neither but I remember my doula informed me that I'm allowed to ask why?! And ask questions. They wanted to speed things up and I declined so they said they will come back in two hours. As soon as they left I spoke about my options with her. She asked me what did I want? Because I was starting to get nervous. But as time went by she helped me through the rest of my traumatic labor but Giovanna was there every step of the way to help me and my partner through it all. I would recommend her 100x's to everyone looking into doulas. You definitely will not regret it. She was truly a blessing on the most difficult but beautiful day of my life.
