We met Amelia after my partner and I were referred to NYC Doula Collective by our midwife. We immediately were taken by her calm demeanor and extensive knowledge and passion for birthing and postpartum care. During our pre-labor visits she guided us through the birthing and doula process, yet the discussions were very client-directed as we often had many questions for her. Amelia always provided us with extensive resources and information which was very helpful. When in labor I was fighting the pain and not making significant progress. Upon entering our home Amelia read the situation and mood of the environment and helped me progress in my labor. She was assertive yet not pushy and provided the perfect support and assistance I needed to help me progress in my labor. Amelia supported my partner as well through constant encouragement. She was a calm presence when we felt overwhelmed and stressed. During the delivery she was by my side and beyond helpful and involved. She reminded me of things we had discussed, and I wanted during my delivery and was my advocate and voice when I couldn’t be. Amelia helped me with latching and breastfeeding after the birth as well. I am very thankful that she was a part of my birthing experience as she added positivity, support, and guidance at a time when it was needed the most. I cannot imagine what the birth of my first child would have been like without her in our lives.
