Testimonial for Sanyika Williams

Best choice of postpartum experience was hiring Sanyika!

I hired her for three days, spread out between a couple of weeks after Max was born. I wasn't sure in the beginning how I felt about the days being a little bit spread out, but it ended up being exactly what I needed. Her guidance and support on each of these days was such a comfort. 

Day 1- Assisted in ordering my breast pump with insurance while my brain was in too much of a fog to handle this task, assisted in making breastfeeding as comfortable as possible, helped my husband and I learn how to use our baby carrier, bathed Max with us for the first time.

Day 2-Drew a glorious home-made Sitz bath for me, sanitized all of my bottles, taught me how to use the breast pump so I didn't have to read directions. 

Day 3- Taught me how to breastfeed while laying down, Showed me how to defrost pumped milk and feed Max his first bottle. 

I can't imagine the other tricks she has up her sleeve. These were the things that I was not confident with as a new mom and she gave me the tools to feel comfortable with them. There were NO dumb questions and she made me feel like I could do anything. She also allowed me to text her almost endlessly for a few weeks until I found my footing. However, best of all, while I and everyone else around were so focused on Max...she made me and my health a priority, which is a true gift after having a baby.
