Testimonial for Kari Yazejian, CPLD, BA

When I became pregnant, I knew that I wanted to have my baby outside of the hospital setting and in a birth center. Due to working with 2 great midwives and knowing that I wouldn’t have to fight to have my preferences regarding care and the birth, I wasn’t sure I needed a doula. As I was getting closer to my due date I was getting more nervous and felt like something was missing. I was encouraged by several people and my midwives to work with a doula. Once I met Kari, it was clear she was the missing piece to my puzzle. She spent a great deal of time with myself and my partner, getting to know us and how to best support the birth I envisioned. She was a calm presence, giving support and sharing suggestions to help me through my labor. Although, my birth was smooth and very quick, my baby ended up needing to be transported to the hospital. Kari was by my side helping me process the situation until I was able to get to the hospital myself. It was once Kari and I arrived at the hospital, that Kari became absolutely priceless. She was an amazing advocate for myself and my family, (while my partner and I were in a post birth haze) as we navigated a hostile hospital system that we very unexpectedly found ourselves dealing with. She checked in regularly and shared her vast library of resources both before and after my son’s birth. Kari truly cares about the the families that she works with and honors the sacred space of birth. I cannot emphasize how valuable Kari’s service was during my transition into motherhood.
