Testimonial for Dasha Litvinov CD(DONA) Doula & CCCE Childbirth Educator

Dasha just has a way of connecting with people. She goes to my gym and on her very first day because I was pregnant, approached me with a brochure. I hadn't considered a doula for my birth and was largely not interested at the time. The more I looked at the brochure that she gave me I got more interested in decided to sit down and talk about it. I learned a lot over the next bit about how it could benefit me and decided to move forward with it. I was a super stressed out pregnant lady. I was afraid of so many things regarding the birth process and not knowing what was going to happen and if I would be able to advocate for what I wanted.

That's where Dasha stepped in and we made a plan and I knew that no matter what she would advocate on my behalf in the best interest of me and my baby. She asked every question she could possibly ask to know how to help me if my plan were to change. Even down to how I can best be supported. For me I don't like placating statements like "everything is going to be okay", etc so she knew exactly how to help me through the labor process in the best way. 

I ended up being induced and she was there from beginning till the very end. When my epidural didn't work correctly she was there trying to lighten the mood as we went through the contractions and made sure that the right people were being called to get it fixed. During pushing she was holding one leg with my husband on the other and helped with different (more helpful) cueing when I wasn't quite following what the doctor was saying. 

One of the best parts was right as he was born she was immediately grabbing phones and taking pictures and videos and I appreciate that SO much. It didn't even occur to me because at that point I was highly medicated and, you know, just pushed a baby out and was baffled by the quick transition into motherhood.

It was so great to have her on my team and I've already called dibs on her for the next baby!
