Testimonial for Sanyika Williams

I do not know how to even start. Sanyika gave me the best doula experience and it was better than I thought it would be. She was very responsive and even though she had other clients, I never felt like a number. We talked through social media platforms as I sent her countless videos of exercises and birth plan ideas. I'm sure some of them were out there but she would gracefully offer better ideas or give me food for thought. When birth became closer she checked in often and guided me on things I should be doing that would aid me in my drug free birth. Okay so maybe a week leading up to my baby's birth I can't remember how many times I texted, sometimes it was super late at night or early in the morning but she would always reply! I was amazed. Then the night before I had my baby I really wasn't sure if it was it or not because I had had prodromal labor for days. I just let her know my symptoms and then let her know that I think I was ready to go to the hosptial to get checked. Not one time did I tell her she should come because again, I wasn't sure. But based off of what I was telling her, she made her way to me and was there by time my water broke (which was about 45 minutes after I arrived for monitoring). She honored what I wanted which was a drug free birth and even when I decided I wanted an epidural she was right by my side and honored that as well. Unfortuately and fortunately, I was unable to get the epidural because I went from from a 6 to a 10 in nine minutes and pushed the baby out in 45 seconds. Boom! No way would I have been able to do it without her. No way. My husand was great but I think I held her hand while I pushed. I will always be thankful for her and grateful that she played such a major role in my journey to becoming a mom of 2.
