I am happy to be a Birth Doula, since I believe that women are not patients at their own birth. I believe women are power. Women are love. Women are universe.

 

While a lot of times hospital birth leads to many unnecessary interventions, doulas are there to empower women to have their birth their own way. This can be unique and beautiful process. This can be priceless. Since birth has influence on your whole life. The way baby starts to live is tremendously important,

In labor, women too, start their journey as Mothers. The way you are going to feel about giving birth may influence everything in your life thereafter. How do you feel about yourself? How do you feel about your new baby? How do you feel about having children at all?

 

Any traumatic experience can result in not wanting to have children again, in having postpartum depression, in not believing in yourself… This is a big price to pay!

Interesting fact, as a doula, I have met a lot of women, who had “good birth experience” by healthcare standards. But who sets these standards? As long as it is not you, it does not matter! Your personal attitude to birthing process can vary so much from standard practice.

 

So how doula can help?

Doulas are not healthcare professionals, they do not check your blood pressure, heartbeat of the baby or even your dilation in labor. And- this is a great news!

 

 

We, as doulas, can use all this time to truly learn about you, your birth preferences and expectations, about things that are important for you at birth. Since we are not distracted by so many tasks providers have to think of, all we can think of is You and your feelings. Are you cold, are you scared, do you understand what is going on, how do you feel about every decision that is to be made, how do you want this birth to be?

 

Doulas are there to comfort you, make sure you have warm socks or soft blanket,  bring you some water when you are thirsty, hold your had or give you a nice massage on your back.

We, as doulas, believe that birth is a special time of bonding for your family. If there is a partner present at birth, we want to provide strong emotional support for him as well. People, who truly love you, may easily get stressed about things at birth, so we want to encourage them to do things that might be helpful or just give extra comforting words of support ensuring that your partner knows that this is a normal process of birth.

 

Doulas are also advocates for you in labor. We give you the information- valuable instrument that will empower you to make decisions knowing all the negative and positive sides of each of them. As a doula, I strongly believe that there all decisions at birth are important, and that every parent will choose the best for their baby if given the right instruments and if supported in proper way, without being pushed into something.

 

One other important aspect of doula work is preparation for labor. As a doula, I always take time to get to know you better. Every pregnancy is different and every birth is unique. Even your previous pregnancy can be different from this one. That is why, from the moment you hire a doula, we will create your personal birth plan, I will help you with best exercises to prepare for labor, provide support to the ways of birth you prefer and be there to help you experience this. Even though, there is no way to know how labor will go beforehand, there is still so much benefit to have the experience doula by your side, who will deem the light or assist you in taking shower, help with breathing at birth, position changes for easier labor, comfort measure and relaxation techniques to help you achieve the birth you truly want.

 

When the baby is worn, the essential support of birth doula is step aside and let you enjoy the golden hour with your baby. Doulas know the importance of skin to skin contact and breastfeeding initiation and will assist you if this is your goal.

 

Most importantly, what you can expect from hiring a doula, is unconditional support to the things you want. We will provide you with information and powerful instruments to have the experience you truly wish for.

Client Testimonials for Anna Isaiko

10/10/2021

When I got pregnant I decided that I wanted to have natural, unmedicated vaginal birth free of epidural or any other drugs. I started researching on the matter and came across something that’s called HypnoBirthing. It piqued my interest. I’ve learned that with HypnoBirthing I can achieve that and be present in the moment and enjoy the whole process. Sounded like a fairy tale, right! The videos on HypnoBirthing showed completely relaxed moms and if you didn’t know that they were in labor you wouldn’t have guessed it. Luck has it that I found Anna, who is a certified doula as well as a certified HypnoBirthing coach. Anna and I started working on my HypnoBirthing journey. Don’t get me wrong, you do have to do some leg work to get that beautiful birth that you are envisioning. Anna will be there with you, walking you through each step and explaining every little detail, and answering any questions you possibly have. As my husband said “you hit a jackpot with Anna” and I can’t agree more! Having her walking me through my labor and delivery of my baby girl and all the work that we have done before that day has made a tremendous difference. Her friendly personality and ability to make you feel comfortable around her made it super easy to be able to be vulnerable and in a state that no one has ever seen you before, even you yourself.
HypnoBirthing technique will allow you to completely disconnect yourself from what is going on around you. You will be able to place yourself in a state of mind where it’s just you and your baby who are working together in the birthing process. In the end, I had the labor and the delivery that I wanted. I can say with confidence it was beautiful. Anna also helped me latching my baby and I was able to feed her within minutes of her being born. Thank you Anna for making it happen and for your continuing support! You rock! It would not have been the same without you!

We hired Anna as my birth doula, and that was the best decision I’ve made for my pre and post labor needs. As a first-time parents, we had no idea what to expect for the birth and the baby care after delivery, so Anna was there to help us get prepared, and go through it with ease. So without her help, I’m pretty sure I could’ve end up with a C-section rather than a natural birth I had planned to have. She was available for more than 24 hours by my side with full energy and support.Anna was absolutely amazing in helping us bring our baby into the world. So, I would love to recommend Anna to anyone who is looking for a great doula, and I assure you won’t get disappointed!

I can't imagine doing it without Anna! I had my first without a doula , so, can definitely say the difference. Anna was so helpful prepping me during my pregnancy and always available to answer questions. I had to be induced at 39 weeks as baby was too big (4.2 kilos when delivered). I went through 45 hours of labor!!! I only got epidural at 35 hours mark - all thanks to Anna. She reduced pain of contractions significantly! She was also able to use spinning baby technique to flip the baby in the right position when the nurse realized the baby is face up (which would eventually lead to C section and severe tears during labor). After that the labor progressed so fast and I pushed under 6 minutes with no tears! It was a miracle given the size of the baby. Anna is truly amazing and so knowledgeable! You can't go wrong with her.

Anna consulted me online in November 2020, a month prior my son was born. She listened to me very carefully, was very involved (asked tons of questions) and was very informative and helpful. She got me inspired to try VBAC after two ?-sections and helped me understand what questions I needed to ask my OB. Even though Anna was not my doula, her consultation helped me during my labor, and I had a successful nonmedicated VBAC.

Anna Isaiko has been an absolute delight to work with, she has been there for me every step of my way during my pregnancy and made the whole experience so much easier. Anna has been extremely supportive with every decision I made and helped me stick through them during my labor and delivery. Anna came to my house whilst I was in active labour, helped me through my contractions, exercised and went on a walk with me. She put my mind at ease and knowing that I had Anna, helped me get through my labour pains a lot more easily. I went into the hospital at 9cm dilated and ended up having a non-medicated birth.

Throughout my pregnancy, not only was I excited to meet my little boy, but I was also excited to give birth. Anna made my mind calm and body relaxed throughout this whole process and I could not be any more thankful. She was ready with essential oils, yoga ball, candles etc to make me feel at home and put myself in a position where I am the most comfortable. She is always quick to respond to texts/messages and I knew as soon as I went into labor, she would be there.

My husband also appreciated Anna as it was a massive headache off his shoulders and at times when he did not know what to do, he knew we had Annas unconditional support. Anna helped me write a birth plan, helped me pack my hospital bag and taught me and my husband to exercise for the baby to be in the right position. Anna would always check up on me and my baby, she has been so helpful and I'm more than happy to recommend her to everyone.

I had wonderful experience working with Anna. She is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I connected with her during the tough time right after my baby was born. I had lots of questions about breastfeeding and doubts if I'm doing everything right. She answered all of them and provided much needed advices on how to move forward, what's important and what not to worry about. I felt so much more confident to continue breastfeeding after her consultation. She truly knows her stuff, I will continue working with her as childcare brings more challenges in the near future.

Anna is absolutely wonderful. I had a great delivery, in big part thanks to her. She helped me find a great position to labor in.  Having her there made me (and my husband) feel calm and reassured. Also we were so happy to be supported by Anna during the first couple of weeks of being home with the new addition to our family. So many questions, so many new feelings, and of course so many first experiences ... quite overwhelming sometimes. Her calm demeanor, vast experience, and many answers reassured us that we were doing the right things in taking good care of our little one. She is highly educated and knowledgeable.

Anna helped me to deliver my baby boy in October 2019. She acted very professionally and was a source of valuable support to me and my husband who was also present at the labor.

Anna assisted me in preparation for the baby birth including development of the birth plan; in making important decision during birth process; and - the most significant - she used different techniques to help me to manage pain during the labor. Thanks to that the birth of my son was amazing experience for all our family (even though it was not the easiest labor).

Afterwards, Anna was checking on  us many times finding out how me and baby were doing. She was ready to help with breastfeeding and any other issues. However, Afterwards, Anna was checking with us many times finding out how me and baby were doing. She was ready to help with breastfeeding and any other issues. However, Aiden was my second child so I didn't need any help like that. Just was grateful for such attention because sometimes even knowledge that there is someone who is ready to help you means a lot. 
I highly recommend Anna and wish each woman has the same positive experience with labor as I did.

Anna was our doula for our first baby. I was extremely nervous, but knowing that we had Anna gave us peace of mind for one of the biggest and most significant event of our lives. We met with Anna before deciding to work with her, to get a feel for her energy and learn more about her views on childbirth.  She is extremely personable and helped us feel comfortable right away. She was also readily available via text and phone leading up to our delivery and answered any questions we had. I ended up having the birth that I wanted, and Anna encouraged me to remember my goals and try to stay strong throughout the process, no matter how challenging.

Also she is definitely knowledgeable about postpartum. Anna is experienced and super encouraging!
