Corina was our doula for our first child, and she was a great source of comfort and support for us throughout our pregnancy.
Corina is a very kind, gentle, and understanding person who was always happy to lend an ear to our many concerns. Prior to the due date, she walked us through the various options and procedures during birth (things such as epidural/no epidural, and delayed cord clamping), and recorded the options we wanted. When the delivery came, she made sure to communicate these desires to the hospital staff on our behalf. She coached us through several pain management techniques, but we didn’t end up using most of them because we ended up getting an epidural halfway through labor due to back pain, despite our initial desire to avoid it if possible. Regardless, Corina stayed by our side the entire time, and made sure to support us however we needed until the birth of our healthy baby boy. After the birth, she has kept in touch, and referred us to other services to help with our various childcare needs.
Corina made our delivery much more comfortable than we were afraid it would be, and we are very glad to have hired her. We highly recommend her to any pregnant mom who wants a shoulder to lean on, both figuratively and literally.
