Client Testimonials for Nicomis Blalock

Athena Villarreal

Nicomis is an incredible doula. Throughout my prenatal, birth and post partum processes, her support was extremely thorough, sensitive and deliberate. Nicomis is a deep listener and conituously provided resources for my husband and I before, during and after every session with her. She has a wealth of knowledge, and her holistic and personalized approach is exactly what we wanted. She helped make our ideal birth environment a reality.

In addition, my husband felt supported in his role as my birth partner and Nicomis' attention to detail allowed him to be fully engaged with me during labor. 

Nicomis is dedicated to helping create a birth experience that is desired by her clients and she fully supports their choices. Her presence is calming yet empowering, and it was reassuring to know that she was supporting us - physically and emotionally - throughout this important time.
