"As a first time mom, I was naturally and excited and overjoyed about my pregnancy and becoming a mother. The one thing I was extremely nervous about was labor and delivery. Sayida, my doula, and very dear friend helped me every step of the way. She started preparing me for this momentous event months in advance and provided me with a wealth of information. I live in New Jersey, and even though Sayida's practice is based in California, she was no less involved. We spoke on the phone once per week for the large majority of my pregnancy, and my husband and I planned to fly her out to be a part of the birth. Of course as fate would have it, my precious baby decided to come two weeks before her due date - and Sayida was still in California! But of course, she had a back up plan, and stayed on the phone with my husband and I through much of the 24 hour labor we endured. She also continuously sent emails to my husband's PDA telling us what to expect and answering any questions we had. Overall, we could not have done this without her warming spirit, and sheer expertise. We love her and definitely plan to have her at ALL of our future births."
