      Vonda was very knowledgeable in all thing hypno birthing. She has a very calm soothing voice which helps when trying to relax! She made her self available as a backup doula in case ours was pulled away at a different birth. Would take her class again if we have the need later on.

      I chose Vonda because of her experience & knowledge as I attempted a VBAC. I wanted the best support to have the highest chances of achieving that. And I did! I couldn’t have done it without the continuous support of Vonda. From the HypnoBirthing (education) during pregnancy & the continuous labor support. I would hire her again in a heartbeat if we have another baby. I also recommend her to all of my friends & family!

      In our first meeting with Vonda she said to me, “I bring calm to the room”. That phrase stuck out to me because I didn’t think birth could be calm. She could not have been more right. Vonda completely changed my whole perspective on and experience of birth. Taking her hypnobirthing class and having her present during our birth was the best decision we made for our family. Because of her, we were able to have a calm, peaceful, and unmedicated birth. She is warm, caring, and genuine. She was also an amazing advocate for us with the hospital staff and ensured that I was able to have the experience and environment that I wanted. I had a dream labor for my first baby and I could not have done it without her.

      We took Vonda’s Hypnobirthing class and loved it and her so much we actually asked her if she would like to be our doula. Vonda has a sense of calming and knowledge that brings peace to others around her. During my birth she helped me focus on my breathing, which is crucial. She worked well with my photographer and midwife as well. It was as if we were one big happy family. I would highly recommend Vonda to anyone seeking a peaceful and happy birth.

      Vonda has supported us at all four of our babies births and we are so thankful for her calm and helpful presence. We are so blessed to have her as our doula and wouldn’t choose to birth without her!

      Vonda is someone who immediately makes you feel comfortable. It is very obvious that she is extremely knowledgeable in the field and that she is very well connected in the area – she knew all of my midwives, knew all of the ins and outs of the hospital where I was giving birth, etc. I didnt take her formal hypnobirthing class but she took the time to give me a mini course so that I was ready. She even let me borrow some of her books. Vonda helped me advocate for myself during prenatal care when I needed to and she advocated for me as well (even calling midwives on their personal cells).
      She has such a caring demeanor but I can tell she is not afraid to get business done when necessary. When I was overdue Vonda fully supported me and helped me navigate avoiding induction. I thought I had exhausted all of the ideas for going into labor naturally- but then she gave me some tactics and within a few hours of texting her asking her what to do, I was in active labor. Due to a family emergency, Vonda was not able to be with me when I gave birth. But she sent her colleague- another doula who I had already met multiple times- who was great. We never felt like we didnt have the support even when Vonda needed to take care of her own family. I missed her at the birth but was able to have an empowering, safe, natural birth and I know Vonda played a big role with that.

      Vonda has supported me during pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum with my last three children. Vonda is extremely knowledgeable was able to guide me through nutrition, baby positioning, specialist recommendations, hypnobirthing, prenatal testing, birth interventions, you name it! With her physical, emotional, and mental guidance I was able to constantly refocus during birth and achieve the optimal births for me while keeping us safe! Vonda brings a sense of calm and peace wherever she goes.

      I have had the privilege of working with Vonda for many years. She is an excellent teacher, support, and doula! As a midwife, I’m thankful when a client tells me they have hired Vonda for childbirth classes or as their doula. I know they will be well prepared and well supported. She is particularly helpful when a patient is seeking someone with quiet confidence and gentle touch. Her presence is calming to everyone in the birth room.

      Vonda was my Doula for both of my births. She new exactly what I wanted and did everything in her power to help me achieve it. She is the calm and guiding spirit I needed to have two wonderful birthing experiences. She is full of knowledge and advice and is with you every step of the way. I highly recommend her 🙂

      After finding out I was pregnant, I knew I wanted something different for my birthing story. My first son was premature at 26 weeks, and unfortunately, due to the circumstances, I had no decision in my son’s birth. I felt I was talked into things because I did not know anything different. After running into a friend and announcing my pregnancy to her, she shared her birthing story. Just like mine, her first birth, she didn’t have much say. In her second birth, we hired Vonda. After hearing her and her husband talk about the bond and the experience they had, I couldn’t help but reach out to Vonda to know more. My first conversation with Vonda was over the phone, and we talked for over an hour. I shared my firstborn’s birthing story. My fear of my second birth and the complications I had as a high-risk pregnancy.
      By the end of the conversation, I knew I wanted her to be a part of my birthing story. Her voice was reassuring, and talking with her already put me at ease. The next few weeks, we would chat over text and phone about how my pregnancy was going. Due to some complications that put me in the hospital at 21 half weeks, I reached out to her to let her know. That’s when I met Kiana, also on her team. Kiana came out to meet me at the hospital and comfort me during this time. Vonda also chatted with me about some of my concerns and gave me the confidence to speak to my medical team about them. Because of this, I could advocate for myself and my son, which led to a better out
