 My family and I are so blessed to have had Nancy's support throughout the pregnancy and birth of my first son. I was very stubborn and idealistic about taking the most natural approach to birth and breastfeeding that i could fathom and Nancy was a great partner and support system to me and my husband even when my plans derailed. It was clear that even when i went against my birth plan that Nancy was committed to mine and my childs care without judgement. I was in the hospital for 2.5 days before my son was delivered and Nancy was by my side the entire time, her expertise never faultered by lack of sleep or her own personal needs. She was extremely professional and invaluable to the process, she was not just a great coach to me but to my husband who was able to be more active and involved because of the knowladge Nancy provided him. After giving birth Nancy continued to be an amazing support system in providing me with resources such as a list of suppliments to help with my milk production as well as teaching me excersize and meditation methods for the best and most optimal recovery of my body. Overall Nancy was so amazing through the entirety of my 40 weeks and beyond into post partum. I view my first pregnancy so fondly largely because of her voice and advice.  I highly recommend Nancy as some one you want to be a very vital yet unintrusive part of your experience with birth. She is a natural nurturer and was made for this kind of work.

I never in my life thought I would ever have a Doula at my birth.  My midwife encouraged me to try one - 

So I did.  When I met Nancy I knew she was the one because she gave that mother nurturing feel to me 

I wanted someone I can feel comfortable with and still have that comforting mother feel. She had it all!

She has great breathing techniques that she thought me and ways to relax my body . I had a amazing 

Experience with her ! One thing remains to this day that I've learned from her is "Don't  fight the pain just let it flow through your body"

I never thought that I could ever have a baby without epidural - I had 4 with epidural and my last baby which was my exerience with Nancy I had NO MEDICINE!  She helped me through breathing exercises get throuh those painful contractions. When I was screaming for a epidural I was already 9 centimeters! I couldn' believe it!  I  through Nancy's help made it that far with out any MEDICINE! 

She stayed by my sde the whole time ! She's very patient and wise in her techniques! I am so grateful to have met her ! I recommend Nancy 100%

My husband and I were very fortunate to secure the service of Nancy Barrientos as our doula. It was our first child. I knew I wanted a vaginal non-medicated birth and on our own terms for the well being of myself and the baby. Nancy provided everything I requested and more. She was a blessing providing me with personal care, natural remedies, birthing position options and making a birth plan. Nancy was exceptional at responding quickly to the many questions and concerns that I had. She made herself available to join me at my appointments. During the delivery Nancy helped me stay calm control my breathing and stay focus. After the delivery Nancy stayed and provided advice on my postpartum care. Three years later I found out I was pregnant again. Nancy was the second person I called with the news. I knew I needed to make sure she was available for us. I didn't want anyone else but her. I highly recommend her services to any family or mother in need of such invaluable support person.

 I can truely say Nancy Barrientos changed my life. I knew I didnt want to inject medicine into my body after reading into getting drug to help ease my way through the birth. After talking with Nancy she made me feel like I could do it, that I was strong enough to handle the labor mentally and physically. She came to visit me before and after my births, checked in on me to see how I am doing, if I needed anything and step by step instructions on what I should be doing depending on what month I am in or what trimester I was in. During labor I'm so glad she was with me and by my side because she gave me words of encoragement, did anything I needed her to do. guided my partner through the process as well to help us both be a part of the birth. she really knew what she was doing, very knoledgeble. She also respected my wish to get medication but with her mentally and physically I choose not to get it. I had 4 births with Nancy and all natural. I truly believe she was a blessing. I had all my births with no complications, very fast, and easier than I thought it would be. My 4 children are all very healthy kids now, my family thanks you Nancy with all our hearts.
