Erika was great and very knowledgeable and supportive, answering any and all questions we had during the pregnancy and while in labor. Having an advocate who knew our wishes was something I didn't realize we would appreciate as much as we did. Erika's calm demeanor and willingness to keep me comfortable and relaxed from the start made having her there incredibly helpful.
Having Erika as my doula was the best decision I could have ever made. She was an incredible support to both me and my husband. Erika really helped me through my breathing early on in my labor. She helped me to feel relaxed and was amazing at encouraging me and believing in me. She knew my birth plan and helped me follow through with it even in the toughest decisions throughout my labor. I would highly recommend Erika because of her calm nature and the peaceful atmosphere she brings to the environment. It was such a blessing to have her at the birth of my son, which is one of the most intimate experiences of my life.
Most highly recommended! Erika was my doula for my 3rd birth, in May 2018. She is fantastic, an ideal doula. She is kind and professional, supported me in the just the way that was best for me. She is a great listener and will truly support you for your birth in the way that is best for you. She provided visualization during labor, supported my husband and me emotionally and practically, and was a pro at dealing with the hospital staff when we arrived at the hospital. I had 3 natural births in hospitals, each with a different doula, and I can say from my experiences that Erika is a total pro. Feel free to contact me directly at email@example.com if you want to hear more about my experience with Erika.
I had never really considered using a doula, but I knew I wanted to avoid induction & so I decided to try it out for my second birth. Erika was an amazing support and coach and I would highly recommend her. It doesn't matter what type of birth you are dreaming of, if you are an epidural asap or all natural type- she is an awesome person to have on your team!
