Testimonial for Vickie Fernandez Wint

We are so grateful that we decided to hire Vicki to support our son's birth. From prenatal to postpartum, Vicki helped guide us with  incredible amounts of experience and compassion. During our first prenatal meeting, she presented us with questions about our birth preferences that we had not even thought to address. On topics which we were unsure of, she shared links to evidence based articles so we could make our own decisions in our own time.

Vickie is in tune with the New York City birth community and because of this, she was able to give us the heads up about a sudden issue with our planned birthing location. Three days past my due date, she met with us to discuss our options and helped make an overwhelming situation manageable. We were able to pivot at the last minute and still have a birth experience as close to our plans as possible. I am certain our birth story would not have been as positive as it was without the guidance of Vicki and her doula partner Francesca through these last minute changes.

Vickie's support postpartum has been so nurturing. During our home visit, she taught us how to use the wraps we had been given for baby wearing and took the temperature of our general well-being as we adjusted to becoming a family of three.  With her facilitation of a weekly new parent meet-up she has created a circle of support and community by bringing together her clients to share their struggles, victories and the mundane day to day that feels uniquely understood by birthing parents with babies in the same age range. It is obvious that Vickie feels a calling to do this work, something that feels so important in hiring support for such an intimate event. Without question, we would recommend her to someone looking for a doula.
