Testimonial for Brana Ninkov RN, MSN, CLEC, Birth Doula, BSN Nutrition

Honestly, every woman deserves to birth with the support and love of a doula as wonderful as Brana. It's hard to put into words my immense gratitude to the universe for connecting us, so I'll share just 2 moments we had together:

1. I had a nightmare one evening around month 6 that my baby had been born and I kept “messing up” as a new mom. I kept dressing her “the wrong way” and clothes didn’t fit, I bought the wrong type of diapers, etc. I told Brana about this dream and to my amusement she replied - “Oh I’ve done things like that in real life!” And we had a good laugh. She comforted and reassured me there’s no perfection to be had and that I’d have strong intuition with my babe. I felt comforted and less scared.
2. I was having anxiety and some overwhelming stress near month 8, and I called her and she reminded me to unplug, focus on my breathing, take baths, try to calm my nervous system. She made me realize my feelings were valid and normal and reminded me to tap into my body and relax. It was a turning point in my pregnancy. I felt heard and seen.
3. I had a homebirth but I had to be transferred to a hospital and she came with me. I was naked and bleeding and sad and vulnerable and the nurses felt hostile. She advocated for my right to a support person being by my side; she made me feel safe and protected.

I wish I could go on and on; alas, there is a word limit to this review. She has a strong grounding energy and she walked me through  the most pivotal moment of my life, side by side, shoulder to shoulder. She respected and supported me from Day 1 and I’m forever grateful she was with me on this journey.
