Testimonial for Sanyika Williams

From the start of my pregnancy I knew that I wanted a doula. Let me say this,  Sanyika is passionate about her work and it shows the moment you contact her. She was very responsive, attentive, and very knowledgeable about the different phases of pregnancy and labor, she made me feel special even through our intitial meeting. During my pregnancy she was a listening ear, caring, compassionate, and had great advice! I truly was blessed to find a doula like sanyika. She was there for me during my pregnancy and she truly made my birthing experience a controlled and comfortable process. I told her exactly what I had planned for my birth and she was able to put my plans into action literally from the birth plan to the constant educational information that allowed me to make informed decisions about my birth. I planned on having a natural birth in a hospital setting and she was supportive from the start. I started to experience Preeclampsia late in my pregnancy at 37 weeks. I'm not going to lie the hospital experience was scary and overwhelming at times as a first time mom, but sanyika made me feel strong, powerful, calm, and confident to allow my body to bring my daughter into the world. She stayed the entire time I was in the hospital, she set the mood with lights and relaxing scents, and calming sounds and I really loved the way she transformed my hopsital room. Not only was she there for me, she was also supportive towards my fiancé and sister who were in the birthing room with me. She made them feel like they were a part of the process and even directed dad with the hip squeezes, ( those hip squeezes really help with those contractions!)  I had to get an epidural and later a c-section but Sanyika stayed with me up until I had to get moved into surgery. As I write this I get a little emotional because of how luckly I am that I found such an amazing doula, it really is a partnership and I will never forget my experience with her.
