I was lucky enough to have Daniela recommended to me by my midwife group when I was almost 30 weeks pregnant. I had been looking for a doula and was not finding anyone with availability that I “clicked” with. Within my first meeting with Daniela, I could tell she would make a great addition to my birth team. She was so friendly, comfortable, knowledgeable, and personable. She was supportive and passionate from the beginning and I felt very comfortable with her. She met with me a couple times before I went into labor and took the time to send me information about labor, classes in my area, and even came to my home to help my husband and I practice coping texhniques. In the weeks leading up to my labor, she sent periodic texts that always made me feel looked after and when I went into labor 4 weeks before my due date, she was there in a heartbeat. As soon as she arrived at my home she got right to work making sure I was comfortable and confident in what I was doing. Daniela has sn exceptionally soothing presence that really helped lesen my (and my husband’s) anxiety about going into labor so early.
Daniela soothed, made sure I was hydrated and nourished, helped coach me throughout my labor, and supported my midwives until my daughter was born. She then helped clean up and get me settled, promising to come back for a visit within the first few days.
While Daniela is a newer doula, it is clear she has found her calling! I can’t imagine what I would have done without her sweet, caring, kind, and knowledgeable presence. I highly recommend her - especially to mothers who are planning a natural birth, are hoping for a VBAC, are using midwives, or giving birth at home as I did. Her experience in all of these areas makes her invaluable!
