Patient. Kind. Loving. Affirming. The Best Doula There Is. I was referred to Dawneshia by my hairstylist during my first pregnancy. While I was only 8 weeks pregnant, we began to talk about my baby as if they were here. She gave me tips for a healthy pregnancy and delivery. Unfortunately, at 10 weeks, I miscarried. Dawneisha provided support during this loss that I will never forget. She prayed with me and provided self-help tips. Subsequently, with her support, I've had two successful deliveries. She is more than a Doula but a family friend.

When you know, you know! I virtually met 3 doulas before connecting with Dawneshia and I knew once I hung up from the zoom SHE WAS IT!! I'm so blessed that another local doula suggested I contact her and see if we'd be a good fit! She is caring, a gentle leader, well educated and was totally aligned with my natural, earth- centered birth goals! There is no way I could have made it through my 24hour unmedicated birth center labor and delivery without her guidance, friendship, prayer and push (literally pushing my hips together as they felt like they were splitting in half during contractions!) Her postpartum care was just as thorough, attentive and loving as her prenatal. I learned so much about nutrition, pain management/relief, bath herbs, healing teas, how to advocate for myself with my birth plan, tips on asking for help from my partner and family..as well as affirmations and encouragement I'm still receiving till this day!! She took so much pressure off of my partner during labor and was a constant source of info, stress relief, joy and laughter for me every step of the way. If you are pregnant or planning, reach out to her.. No way you'll regret it! Blessings
