We recently had our second daughter in May and our doula Idil was amazing. Since the day we scheduled a meeting to get to know her she was super nice. We discussed how i wanted to deliver my baby and she was very comprehensive and made me feel like she was the right doula for me.She was very helpful when it came to my delivery. If you are looking to have a natural childbirth (or not) she is the one to help guide you. I highly recommend you Idil for your childbirth. having her really helped me get through it and not get the Epidural like my first pregnancy in which i didnt have a doula. i was very content with her support and involvement.

I was very lucky enough to have Idil as my doula. I  never expected to give birth naturally, but I did it with the help of Idil. She encourage me that I can do it, she make me calm and comfortable. finally I got my baby on my arm without any pain medication.  I definitely recommend pregnant moms  to have Idil as your doula in your daliver day. Idil is a lovely and friendly women.

Wow I don't even know where to begin honestly! Being a first time and not knowing what's ahead of you was one of the most challanging things I've had to deal with thus far in my life and Idil not only made me understand throughly of what to expect during labor but also heard me out on my wishes and followed through on my birth plan exactly the way I wanted and let me tell you guys I don't know what I would seriously do without a doula especially Idil! She was my rider and supporter and cheerleader and educated until the final end of our journey! She made me feel so comfortable through labor one of the toughest times of my life and if I do decide to have another baby it would def be with the help of Idil! she goes above beyond for her clients and really knows her stuff ! best of lucks with future moms, there really lucky to have you

I had an amazing experience with this beautiful mother of 5!  She is so loving and kind and will make you feel like she is apart of your family. I was soooooo nervous having my 3rd child 8.5 years after my last. She made me feel at ease and shared some of her own personal experience, so it made me more comfortable. I wasn’t sure of what a doula was until my friend said I had to have one. I literally switched my care plan at the last min. I went from a MD to Midwifery and found a doula. The best decision of my life!  This was the easiest delivery and laboring experience of all my children. I was able to go completely natural and leave with a smile. Thank you so much M. Idil for all you do. Many blessings to you.
