Gabriela is truly amazing! I found her via an internet search and I didn't know what to expect at first from a doula. From our very first meeting, Gabriela was warm, knowledgable, and supportive. Her services packages were very reasonable and gave a nice degree of flexibility. She was always very available to answer our questions during the pregnancy and post-partum period. In the lead-up to my delivery, I appreciated our meetings to make sure we were on the same page about what was important to me during the birth. It also made me more comfortable and familiar with the comfort measures that I would come to rely on during delivery.

Once labour started, Gabriela was there for me as soon as I needed her, and stayed until she knew I was comfortable afterward. Her presence was very physically and emotionally reassuring to me and my partner during the whole process. I felt truly so grateful to have her by my side, and had only positive experiences with her. She is incredibly supportive and is able to provide insight and advice in a very positive and nonjudgemental way. I also found that her nursing background is a great asset, since it reassured me that she had a scientific perspective to modern medicine and perinatal best practices.

All together, I really trusted Gabriela and would very highly recommend her!

After several interviews with other doulas and wondering if we wanted one at all, my partner and I met Gabriela. We immediately changed our mind and signed up. And I am so very glad we did. Because this was my first pregnancy and I am relatively new to Montreal, navigating Quebec's healthcare system as well as preparing for delivery was sometimes a challenging process. Gabriela made everything easier and less scary. She was extremely reliable - always on time to appointments, responded right away to my messages. She was also incredibly knowledgeable - as a nurse, she could explain the medical side of things very clearly. What I appreciated most was her willingness and eagerness to do research and fact check answers to any and all questions. At the birth itself, Gabriela provided an incredibly calming presence, working with me and my partner to help in whatever way we needed. And as a postpartum doula, she provided follow up AND cooked us delicious food. I could not have wished for a more supportive, kind, fun presence through this amazing and at times terrifying process that is birth. I will definitely have Gabriela as my doula if I have a second child and cannot recommend her highly enough to others looking for an evidence based, non-judgemental doula.

We are so glad and lucky that we found this incredible doula! She has a lot of knowledge in the medical field as she is a nurse as well. She gave us great guidance, support and confidence through the pregnancy. It was nice to have someone to text if We felt anxious or had questions. She truly helped us make our moment of our first baby A POSITIVE memorable experience! Yitzy and I cannot thank you enough! Thank you Gabriela for all that you did for us. You helped us know and see that birth is beautiful

The best way to describe Gabriela is with the word lifesaver. 

My baby decided to be born without much warning at 32+6 weeks. In order to give the baby time to take in the steroid injection to his lungs, the doctors were trying to prolong labour as much as possible. This meant laboring lying down exclusively... Without Gabriela there, I don't know how I would have managed. Her encouragement, her help with focus and breathing, her massages and compresses, her positivity and amazing attitude helped me ride out the pain without an epidural for the entire labour, which lasted many hours. She helped me advocate for myself and clarify what was going on around me.

I can only say that if Gabriela was so helpful without the doctors allowing her to use her tips and techniques to help labor progress, (no balls, no rocking, no positions, no showers allowed, etc) she is really someone you want at your side during your birth.
