Gabriella was our doula for the home birth of our daughter last April. She was an amazing addition to our birth team!!! We were matched with her when she was interning at the South Coast Midwifery. She was excellent in keeping tabs on me during the pregnancy and we talked at length what my needs would most likely be, and even offered pre-natal massage. During my labor, the quiet strength in her presence made me feel empowered, supported, and cared for. She was as hands on as I needed her to be, and very respectful of our wishes, our home, and the rest of the birth team. She spent hours next to me while I labored, holding my hand, massaging me with oils, suggesting different positions, and making sure I drank water. My husband really appreciated that she made it clear that she was a resource for him as well. And if that wasn't enough, she also brought her camera with her to document my daughter's birth. At the time it was the last thing on my mind, but now we can look back and remember more clearly despite the postpartum memory loss. She visited afterwards to check on us too, offering once again if there was anything we needed. I am so immeasurably grateful that the universe provided Gabriella to be a a part of my daughter's birth. She was perfect for us.
