Client Testimonials for Arlyn Zuniga

Michelle Joy

The real person writing this testimonial should be my husband! He was so reluctant to hire a doula for the birth of our daughter. He thought it was too hippy-dippy and out there for us. Once he met Arlyn for the first time, his opinion was swayed. He thought that it could be helpful but wasn't really fully convinced. Fast forward to the birth. Arlyn made everything so smooth and stress free for both of us. My husband loved that he could focus on me and not have to worry about the medical interactions and remembering exactly what I had wanted for birth. He loved that she was there and made everything so much easier for us. 

We chose to have a hospital birth and ultimately I had an epidural. We had discussed the options available prior and Arlyn was completely on the same page with my intentions. When I decided it was time for an epidural, she talked me through what would happen and helped calm my nerves. After I was medicated, she remained as my advocate with the all too eager residents at the hospital. Naturally after the epidural, things slowed down and they wanted to break my water. Arlyn helped me make the decision on when the time would be right to do that and made me feel comfortable in this choice.

Arlyn was great throughout the whole process. She was so accomodating to our lives and checked in with us frequently before and after the birth. I even recommended her to a fellow mother on my hospital tour! She is the perfect mix of alternative methods and modern medicine.

P.S. We also used her birth photography service. Awesome! :)

Arlyn was our doula for the birth of our second child. She has amazing energy and we were truly grateful she was there guiding us along the way.


She is very knowledgeable and we felt very secure and comfortable with her by our side. She knew how to alleviate pressure when contractions got very intense and she knew exactly what to say in the moment.


Her massages were incredible and I couldn't get enough of them. They were especially helpful during contractions.


I highly recommend Arlyn. She provides incredible support and you will definitely not regret her being by your side!
