Testimonial for Anna Raczka

I can't recommend Ania enough as a birthing doula! My husband and I reached out to her just mere days before my 39th week, as I was starting to lose confidence that my medical provider had my best interest at heart.  I ended up being induced a week early due to some health concerns, and Ania was able to provide a lot of reassurance and guidance leading up to the induction and made herself available for any text/calls to calm my nerves.  We didn't have a chance to meet in person given the quick turn of events but I still felt a strong sense of familiarity and comfort with Ania, like she was immediately part of our "team" and was fully respectful of my opinions/preferences.  When she got to the hospital, her presence created an immediate sense of calm and peace for us.  When the labor started to gain speed, she was superb in helping us navigate the various options that were presented to us and how to communicate our preferences (for ex., delayed cord clamping, different birthing positions) to the doctor with confidence and have informed conversations.  Without her, we would have been totally overwhelmed and nervous. Ania comforted me with massage and aromatherapy which made the labor that much nicer.  When it was time to push, she was a rock for me and my husband and coached me on how to push.  Her calm and confident energy was so needed in that moment! She stayed for a couple hours following the delivery and helped me with nursing, even took photos of us with our baby daughter.  

After, she came to our apartment for two follow up visits and provided helpful advice for breastfeeding and eased other new parent concerns. she drew a sitz bath for me with healing herbs, to help with my post partum recovery.  

If you are considering Ania for your doula, I highly recommend it! She is kind, experienced and brings the perfect calm, reassurance and peace to the experience that every birth deserves.
