Testimonial for Vickie Fernandez Wint

Vickie is wonderful. I was hesitant about working with a doula- I knew I wanted an epidural and the idea of having a stranger in the room helping us was not appealing. We ended up reconsidering because we didn't feel our doctor was communicating effectively. We were primarily interested in someone who would act as our advocate and help us to come to our own decisions on our care without imposing a bias one way or the other.  Vickie was the perfect choice.   My water broke, I immediately had contractions very close together. Thinking I was almost in labor, Vickie came to the hospital right away. She sat with my partner and I for 24 hours and helped me to move around (during one session a nurse came in and said they were great techniques she would use them for future patients), answered questions, and kept us from going crazy just sitting there waiting. Eventually the doctor came in and advised bc it had been 24 hours I should get a c-section. Vickie talked us through every step of making the decision. She asked the doctor all the right questions and while she was pressing her, she did not push us in a specific direction. I ultimately decided to do it, which was my gut reaction, but because of Vickie's expertise, advocacy and support I went in confident about the choice. On top of this, Vickie was so helpful in answering all our questions prior to going into labor, which left us prepared and less anxious going in. Afterwards, she continued to be supportive, answering the million questions about handling a newborn I never even considered.  

I should also add that while Vickie was perfect for what we were looking for I also think a person who wanted something different from the experience could find that too. One of Vicki's greatest strengths is that she listens and doesn't impose a specific path, you really feel like she hears you and you come first.

Vickie is a wonderful choice for a doula, but don't wait she books up fast!
