Testimonial for Kimberly Duran CD(DONA): Sacred Time Birth Services

The decision to hire a doula came late in the pregnancy for me but it was the best decision I ever made. I was very uneducated during my first pregnancy with my daughter which resulted in being induced and then a cascade of interventions which ultimately led to a traumatic csection. This time around I was determined to have a successful vbac and knew I would need to advocate better for myself. After much research I decided that hiring a doula was the right decision for me. My husband is a wonderful support person but not at all educated in labor and delivery and I knew I needed someone who could help coach me and keep me focused on my goal. I had reached out to a couple doulas in the area but when we met with Kim I felt like we immediately clicked. She was very friendly and very knowledgable. I felt very comfortable around her and knew right away that I wanted to hire her. Because I met with her so late in the pregnancy, we only met a handful of times before I went into labor but each time she would give me tips and advice on how to better prepare for the birth. When I eventually went into labor she was very responsive and when I got to the point where I felt like I needed her, she was there immediately. With Kim's help I was able to make my goal of no pain medication until I was almost fully dilated. With her help I was able to stay focused and motivated. She made frequent suggestions for position changes or items to use to help progress my labor and help keep me comfortable. In the end, I pushed for over 6 hours and I credit Kim for helping me get through the moments where I felt discouraged and ready to give up. I successfully gave birth vaginally and my experience this time around was so healing. I would 100 percent recommend Kim's services to anyone.
