Nikki Folkerts

This was our first pregnancy and birth experience. My husband and I have said over and over again since the birth of our son that we want Emma for all of our children. She is very relaxing and I knew from our first visit that she would be a calming presence for the labor and delivery which is exactly what I wanted. During the labor it all went by so fast and Emma never left my side helping me through every contraction. She was a huge support to my husband as well which enabled him to support me well. She also really helped us stick to our birth preferences as much as possible. In the end, she was hugely instrumental in us avoiding a cesarian birth. Not only was she amazing for the birth of our son, but she also helped us immensely in preparing for birth and parenthood. I did not really anticipate how helpful her pregnancy visits and postpartum visits would be, but we have found her to be extremely helpful in every way to our success with this whole new experience! I cannot recommend her srongly enough.

Emma is fantastic! My wife and I were both first-time parents, nervous and sometimes feeling overwhelmed, and Emma was both a wealth of information throughout our prenatal and birth planning phase as well as a calming presence throughout birth. We highly recommend Emma and would hope to have her for any future babies!

It was such a joy working with Emma. What I liked about her is that she is meticulous in what she does. She clearly loves babies and babies love her back. She is also quite knowledgeable. As a mum who likes to work out it was nice exchanging ideas on what I could do postpartum to get back into shape. I am still using her as a resource even though it has been almost four months since I had the baby. Oh, she is also prompt in communication, which is a big one for me. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
