I got to know about Khadija at my friend's baby shower. After learning about who she is and what she does, I started taking her classes about the stages of pregnancy and birthing. I also hired her as my doula for my birth. She came to my house twice and continued to support and assist me for more than the agreed hours throughout my 3-day labor. She had shown patience during her stay while we had our planned home birth. She then accompanied us to the hospital after the safe delivery until we were settled in the recovery room. Her presence and help were invaluable to my experience, and I would recommend her services to anyone that needs to educate themselves about the pregnancy and birthing process, and who would like a calming presence during the delivery.
Jarin and I want to thank you sincerely for all your help and guidance during labor. We really did try every position! I believe it was with the help of your efforts that his head was visible so quickly, and your sensitivity and gentle encouragement helped me feel safe, which helped my baby's own little heart feel strong and secure during those long hours of pushing Our precious baby is truly, a miracle, and we're so glad that you are a part of his unique story.
Praying for blessing over you and your family.
Not only did she educate me on how to have a healthy and natural birth, but she also was my cheerleader and supporter in the most challenging times of my pregnancy and labor.
When I gave birth to my lovely daughter Noura, I had this content smile on my face for a while afterward. I and my husband were extremely thankful to Allah to have sent us Khadeeja as a Doula. She helped us achieve my birth just like I had planned it. I had a traumatic first birth experience that ended with an Emergency C Section. I felt so relieved just by the thought that this time around I had taken my own decisions. I'm so glad to have had Khadeeja as my birth doula. Khadeeja is extremely knowledgeable, professional, patient, and kind; and she was a tremendous help to my husband and me before, during, and after the birth.
Khadijah helped me deliver my baby the way that I wanted to. I had already explained my birth plan to my doctor, who just so happened to be the one who delivered my baby. My doctor, though she was kind had a busy schedule, and did not have time to do things the way that I wanted, and did not even remember what we had discussed. Khadeeja stood up for me in the delivery room; supported me and helped me walk around the room and try different positions to ease my pains, reassured my husband and family, defended my birth plan, and shared the most important day of my life as if it were her own.
We're very thankful for all your help and care during Hannah's labor.
Thank you for everything! Answering all my crazy questions, supporting me when I doubted myself, and being there to guide me when bringing my sweet baby into the world. I hope that you can be there when he gets a sibling!
Thank you for being such an amazing midwife. You had a brilliant way of making me feel calm during my birth. You have an amazing career ahead of you! I am happy for you and all the babies and mothers in your future. Thank you for being there for me and my baby.
My birth was an amazing experience. Thanks to my sister for taking part and being the best support system for me that day. Her presence, calm, demeanor, and positive affirmations radiated throughout my labor and delivery, which resulted in me having confidence in myself. I am so glad she was able to be there to catch my son and her nephew.
You have no idea how much you mean to me. You're one of the fewest people that I trust. Thank you for being such an amazing person. May Allah bless you and your family.
Thanks for all your support during the pregnancy, birth, and postpartum! I hope our paths cross again soon!
