Client Testimonials for Olivia Ahn

Keiko Padilla

In March 2016, Olivia was present for the very long labor leading to the birth of our first baby.  At the time, we had actually been working with a doula who had asked if Olivia could join as an apprentice and photographer.  What a blessing she turned out to be, and so much more valuable and involved than the original role she came for. The labor was 45 hours long and she was at the hospital upon our arrival for the final half of labor. 

Olivia has a calming presence. She was insightful and intuitive--she knew when to be by my side to put pressure on my hips, or put a towel to my head and also when to give a little distance when my partner and I were were sharing in private moments. 

Olivia was a wonderful and integral part of our birthing team and we wouldn't have wanted it any other way.
