Testimonial for Fatima Abdallah

Fatima was my doula for my induced hospital birth at Inova Fairfax. She remains one of the best decisions my husband and I made in our pregnancy and delivery journey. She has a calming presence, a proactive nature and the composed resilience that make her a welcome and extremely helpful presence during childbirth. She is reliable and responsive. Having Fatima with me felt like having a well-informed best friend to advocate for me and help me think through the many decisions I was making in my labor. She took the guesswork and decision fatigue away and this saved me countless hours of research. We had several meetings throughout the pregnancy where Fatima explained all things labor and delivery related. Her presentations were comprehensive, clear, and very interesting. She shared many helpful resources in our meetings. And before heading to the hospital she briefed us on some of the decisions we would have to make regarding the baby (such as administering erythromycin and vitamin k shot). When my contractions started, she gave recommendations for pain management as I labored. Her gentle adjustments to my labor positions helped me dilate from one stage to the next, and I'm very grateful that I was able to deliver vaginally due to this progression. I would not have thought to make so many position changes while trying to manage the contractions. Having her to coach and direct that process was invaluable. She coached me alongside my husband as I pushed, and without skipping a beat when my baby was born, she took pictures and videos for us (a request we made ahead of time), helped me attempt to breastfeed, and even hand fed me my first post birth snack. I appreciated Fatima's follow ups postpartum where she provided suggestions that helped me greatly. She is a wealth of information regarding pregnancy, delivery and postpartum. I wholeheartedly recommend her as a doula. I continue to benefit from her passion for her work, and I know you will too.
