Sandy Soto

Amazing!!!

It was a comfortable and positive experience. First, she provided the education, knowledge, support and empowerment.  She gave me the confidence to believe in my maternal instincts, because I was having doubts and fears.  Even though this was going to be my sixth delivery. Also, Nico provided a relaxing environment and variety of delivery positions and techniques to ease labor.  

Overall, she was respectful and compassionate throughout labor and delivery; not to mention that she safely caught my baby. I highly recommend Nick as a doula!
