Saveria was a very dedicated doula and guided me through pregnancy and birth. She was very flexible and adapted to my mix of medical and natural birth choices very skilfully without any prejudices. She took the time to understand why this mix was so important to me and discussed all different points and options with me in detail. This really helped me to look at things in different ways and was very important in my process of writing my birth plan and overcoming my anxieties around delivery. If she was unsure about something, she went and asked on forums or researched about it.
Having never experienced a delivery room before, it was invaluable to have Saveria present. It gave me the confidence to know that we had an advocate with prior experience, but also that there was extra help in supporting M; in particular having two people to give support during difficult moments, and guiding M to staying calm. If we were to go down this road again, we’d definitely want Saveria with us.
