Nikki Radke-Schmidt

Angee was wonderful throughout both my pregnancy and my home birth. I'm a first time mom and the insight and wisdom she shares with me was invaluable. She gave me the confidence I needed to follow my instincts during a sometimes very challenging unmedicated labor. My husband was able to look to Angee for ways to help me better, especially during transition when I was having a difficult time coping with the pain. My son was born healthy and happy into his father's hands and while we bonded I barely noticed that she cleaned up all of our towels, started laundry and did our dishes!! My home didn't even look like I had just had a baby!! She then helped me shower while my husband dressed our baby. It was truly a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend her. We will certainly not have another baby without her!!

I had the opportunity to work with Angee at the last birth I attended as a photographer. I am a birth photographer and also a doula. It was so great to see Angee in action as a doula.

Angee was such a great doula for this mama. They worked so well together. She was so great at reading the mom's body language and cues. She was able to suggest lots of great laboring positions that were helpful to the mother. She also was able to defuse essential oils during the labor, this the mother enjoyed. She also did a great job getting the husband involved in the birth. They worked so great as a team together.

I would highly recommend Angee as a doula. She is so passionate about what she does. She is caring, kind, and also great with a rebozo.

Angee's services during pregnancy and birth were awesome.  In fact, I would call her services more of a friendship than just doula services.  We found Angee during our third trimester, but still met with her 4 times prior to birth to talk about what our birth would look like, what we wanted, answer the many questions we had, and just get to know her.  She came to our home for a birthing class with the rebozo and different techniques and positions we could use for pain management during our natural childbirth.  She was always happy, helpful, and willing to work around our schedule.  We communicated via texts, phone calls, facebook, and email messages in between the times we met face-to-face.

She is very knowledgeable about birthing situations that may arise and was able to tell when I needed to try something different during the birthing process.  She provided heat therapy, aroma therapy, massage during labor, a rebozo, and offered several other options.  She came right away when I needed her during labor and stayed several hours after birth.  She provided contact information for other services we were looking for as well.

After birth, she brought us a meal and met with us in our home, talked with us, and spent some time talking about our birth, just as a friend would.  She followed up later with texts and messages to see how we were all doing.  She also set up an online meal train for people to bring us food.

Angee's knowledge, passion, and love for what she does truly showed in her dedication to us before, during, and after birth, and we knew we could count on her for support in the birth of our baby.  I would recommend Angee if you are seeking an exceptional doula!

Angee was a priceless addition to our birth experience! Coming off of an uneducated first experience 4 years ago with our son, which resulted in an exceptionally long labor and therefore recovery, we jumped at the opportunity to work with a Doula during our second pregnancy and delivery. Angee provided us with an education and resources prior to the delivery that assisted us in having a successful and positive birth experience with our daughter! Angee is very passionate about birth and helping moms and dads to have the birth experience they desire. My husband was very thankful for the direction she provided during the labor process as it enabled him to help me through the process and allowed him a break when needed. By providing numerous areas of education from essential oils to positions to help progress labor, Angee was essential to us accomplishing a natural birth! We could not have done it without her. For that we are extremely grateful and would recommend her services to any and all expecting parents! Thank you Angee!

After learning that I would need to have my third child naturally, I contacted Angie.  She was very helpful educating my husband and myself on various techniques to help me relax throughout labor.  When labor finally came, we appreciated her presence and her knowledge.  She instructed my husband on various ways to help me through contractions, many of which relieved almost all of the noticable pain and helped me to relax, especially during early labor.  Her knowldege and use of essential oils was very helpful as well.  She assisted my husband in applying counter pressure during contractions and provided wonderful encouragement and reassurance.  She also stayed as an extra pair of hands until we were fully settled after the delivery.  She was very confident, but not pushy, and she genuinely cares about her mommies.  We were very thankful that Angie's services were available.  We feel like we learned so much, and we would have been much less prepared to deal with the physical discomfort of labor without her expertise.  She is a blessing to have on your team!
