Testimonial for Dianne Liwanag CD(DONA)

I am SO happy that my husband and I found Dianne. As my due date got closer I asked my midwives about getting a doula and they were like DO IT! I found Dianne and we did a consultation. I knew instantly she was the right person for me. We connected personally on many levels and she was authentic, down to earth, calm and funny! My husband didn't understand what a doula was going to do for us, until my water broke and my contractions started and he was like WTF. Enter Dianne! She arrived at our house and focused our efforts and energy on what needed to be done. She was an amazing coach for me and to this day I can hear her coaching me through my contractions by blowing out the imaginary candle. She was the best team mate for my husband. I required lots of hip pressure (when I say lots, I mean EVERY ONE!) so they tag teamed for the entire labour. My husband is a big strong guy but I am telling you, Dianne is like SUPER STRONG! He was shaking like a leaf by the end and she was still holding that hip pressure like an absolute boss! To this day my husband is like "Dianne was a god send - no way I could have done that without her." We ended up transerred to hospital. Dianne was an amazing support for me, espically when I wasn't really thinking straight (the drugs were very good). She encouraged me to ask the OB's questions and understand all my options. She stayed with us the whole time, listening, supporting, caffienating (it was a loooong night) and just being an amazing calming presence. When the decision was made to have a c-section, Dianne wished us well and we made a date to have a post-natal visit. Being home was very hard, I was in pain and very overwhelmed. I felt so vunerable that day and thank goodness she was able to come over. She showed up, helped with my son, listened to me and she made me feel seen, heard and supported. I could blather on for pages as to why you should choose Dianne as your doula. Book a consult and see for yourself.
