Testimonial for Dasha Litvinov CD(DONA) Doula & CCCE Childbirth Educator

Just after I met Dasha, I learned that in Spanish, the phrase for giving birth is “dar a luz” which literally means, “to give light.”

I thought it was such a beautiful way to describe birth and it reminded me of Dasha and La Lanterne - being a doula, carrier of light, a carrier of mamas, while mamas give the light.

Despite writing birth plans A, B, C, I truly believed that I could manifest my plan A into being.  My sweet breech baby had other plans. Dasha was a bottomless well of resources as we tried all the tricks in the book to flip the baby. When the baby didn't respond to our efforts, a planned cesarean became our birth path. At 38 weeks pregnant, moving from plan A straight into plan C was a lot to process. I am not one to easily lean on other people, but I am so unbelievably grateful Dasha was there through it all. Her big heart combined with her wisdom and experience in the birthing world helped shine a light in the darkness. Thank you for helping carry me through, mama doula Dasha!
