Testimonial for Vickie Fernandez Wint

Vickie taught me the value of having doula support not just for childbirth but as part of the prenatal and postpartum experience. They say it takes a village, and I'm so thankful that Vickie was a major part of mine and still is! My baby was breech so I ended up having a planned C-section, which meant having labor support was no longer part of the equation. But this did not mean that doula support was not still essential to my experience prenatal and postpartum. Vickie came to the hospital to see how I was recovering and to aid in early breastfeeding efforts. She even made multiple visits to our apartment once we came home to continue breastfeeding support, debrief on the birth experience, and show us how to use our baby carriers. 

Before you give birth, Vickie is also there to support you in so many ways, being a kind and supporting person to voice any anxieties to. She is so knowledgeable and has information at the ready for whatever you need, and you can trust her judgment without question. When I was attempting to naturally get my baby to turn so that I could have a vaginal birth, she provided details on different stretches I could do, data-backed information to help me consider more invasive procedures, and even recommended an acupuncturist, led me in visualizations, and more. In the hazy, crazy early postpartum period, she was someone we could ask anything and everything to. She always responded with empathetic, kind, normalizing advice and information. (Sometimes someon telling you "this is normal" is the most important thing when dealing with a newborn!) When friends or co-workers are newly pregnant, my number one recommendation is going to be to get doula support if you can, and no doubt with Vickie!
