I attended sacred pregnancy with Nicole. I was blown away by how comfortable I was with the experience! Nicole has a calm and serene spirit and has the ability to empower women in a way that few others do. The sacred pregnancy experience helped me to enjoy my pregnancy and be more prepared and ready for my birthing experience. I would highly recommend this class and Nicole as a doula. I will certainly have her by my side at any future pregnancies!!!!
I had a scheduled induction for 11/15/16 due to going into my 42nd week of pregnancy.I ended up going into labor the early hours of 11/12/16,so I called my doula,Melissa,who guided and instructed me over the phone due to her helping with another birth at that time.After laboring at home,contractions were getting longer,stronger,and closer together so my husband and I decided to go to the hospital.I found out my OB was not on call that weekend and I would be delivered by another OB in her group.I was bummed,but knew I was in great hands.As labor was progressing, Melissa let me know she would not be able to come to me for a while as the birth she was assisting with was continuing,so she was going to send in an on call Doula.At this point, not having my OB or Doula with me was starting to make me nervous, anxious, scared, etc!
Within the hour,in walked Nicole and I immediately felt at ease. She had this certain spirit and very calming nature about her that I cannot describe. She began helping me with positioning, walking, and massaging me. After sevreal hours of this with little progression of dilation (@ a 6), the OB informed us that my sons heart rate was dropping with each contraction and that this had been going on for 3 hours. She said she highly recommend c section, but it was up to us. Nicole continued to calm me and assured me that whatever we wanted to do she backed us 100%. I ended up having a c section and my husband and Nicole were right by my side cheering me on the whole time! Baby Drew was born the evening of 11/12/16, 8lb 15oz, and healthy! Nicole stayed during recovery keeping my spirits high! Both my husband and family fell in love with Nicole which says a lot! Since having Drew,I have stayed in contact with Nicole and Drew and I had lunch with her just the other day!Though Nicole was our 'on call doula', we wouldn't have had it ANY other way! I can say that I have gained a life long friend in Nicole and feel blessed she's in our lives!
Nicole is the most incredible gift to the birth world I could ever imagine existing. She acknowledges birth is not just a physical event, but one of mind, body, spirit. She empowers with knowledge, encourages us to rely on our inner strength and reminds us we were made to do this. She is a light - a grounding presence in the birthing space and a joy to have as a resource. She just exudes love - and you can't get enough. I can not recommend her sacred pregnancy classes and doula services enough!
