From the moment my husband John and I met Arcelie, we knew we had found our doula!! Arcelie was the first and last doula we interviewed, it just felt like it was meant to be, that we had all come together in time and space at precisely the right time. We knew that Arcelie's deeply grounded energy would help to root us in our birth experience. Not only is she possessing of such calming energy, but, she is full of knowledge spanning the prenatal, birth and postnatal periods. From the best exercises for helping to bring the baby down and tailored advice on the best approach for building strengh and stamina to babywearing demos after our baby was born, not to mention offering advice on the best resources available as well as the invaluable suggestion of reading; " Birthing From Within" During labor Arcelie was the voice of reason whispering in my ear so many helpful suggestions to help with my 5 hours of pushing!! She remained by my side the whole time and was assisting both physically and emotionally the entire time. She offered so much encouragemnt and love to my efforts. Arcelie was also helpful in acting as a buffer when some family drama arose shortly after I had delivered our baby girl. After I was back home, Arcelie brought some awesome Sitz bath herbs, a beautiful celestial wrap to use for our baby Luna, and some magical biscuits! I had been having some difficulty with eating since giving birth, and the delicious and nutritious biscuits she had made were quickly gobbled up and thereafter my appetite steadily improved!! I can't begun to relay how amazing this woman is and how grateful I am to have had her in my family's corner for one of the most arduous and joyous experiences!

I asked Arcelie to attend the birth of my first baby. I had an unmedicated birth with the Park Slope Midwives practice at Methodist hospital in May 2014. I thought Arcelie would be a great addition to my labor team even though it already included my supportive and very pro-natural-birth husband. I knew I wanted someone with me who had experienced labor before. Who could tell ?my husband and I that what we were exper?iencing was all normal!

During my labor, Arcelie was down right amazing. She was my rock, she was my focal point. I stared hard into her eyes during many of my contractions, to find it reflecting: love, acceptance, strength and courage. Exactly what I needed in those crazy hours.

Before and after my labor, Arcelie came prepared with exactly the right things. When I was on bed rest before the baby, she brought over knitting supplies and a belly casting kit! Post-delivery, she had honey straws on-hand when I desperately needed fuel. She even made the most amazing homemade tincture for post-delivery hemorrhoids. Now that's kindness!

I can't recommend Arcelie enough? -? she was a real gift to me and my family. I am so thankful to have her as one of my dearest friends and favorite mommy role model??.
