Testimonial for Sanyika Williams

Who would have ever thought that the Doula I started following on Instagram would become the Doula for my second and last daughter. I met Sanyika via Instagram and found out we lived in close proximity to each other. We decided to meet and I loved her vibe and I knew that once I became pregnant that she would be the Doula for me. Throughout the pregnancy she was a source of support and someone to bounce things off of. For this birth, when I told her I was considering a home birth she was so excited. When we met we discussed my expectations of my birth she was very supportive and more than willing to work alongside my midwife. I was excited for my birth because I knew I had the A team. It was very important to have people who I vibe with be a part of something so sacred to me. I remembered Sanyika dropping by so we can go for our walks and always checking in on me during the pregnancy. Then on the morning of the birth she walked in as cool as can be and I was so happy to see her. She was able to be that extra support while my husband was busy getting the birth pool ready, we walked chatted and used that lovely sling of hers during my contractions. I remember her always being in the right place at the right times and her pouring water on my back. I remember when I vocalized that I really don't know if I can do it anymore, she repeated one of my phrases from my affirmations to encourag me. After the birth she made sure I was looked after at all times, her presence like a quiet strength, so reliable. I have and will always continue to recommend Sanyika to anyone looking to build their birth team. She also has great skill capturing moments during the labour and delivery.  Her presence made my final birth one od the best experiences of my life.
