My experience with Nicole was amazing. At first I wasnt sure what to expect when meeting with her but she was easy to talk with and she was very helpful in my pregnancy but also afterwards to. I could recommend her to anyone.

Nicole was my postpartum doula. She came to my home and snuggled my baby so that I could do whatever needed to be done. It's amazing what a shower and a little self care could do for my headspace, to begin feeling like a normal person again, in those first couple weeks. I could bounce things off of her about how I was feeling or how the baby was doing, and she would be honest and help me process if I was just freaking out or if I needed to call the doctor. When I had to go into work she would meet me there and hold the baby so that I could do my job. When I started to show symptoms of PPD, I appreciated being able to call her and vent when I needed to, because sometimes I just needed someone to tell me I wasn't crazy. I feel like in today's society women are brought up to think they should be able to do it all, and asking for help is seen as a sign of weakness. I'm here to tell you that you dont always have to be the strong one. I believe we were meant to raise families with the support of community, and I highly recommend Nicole's services!

There are truly not enough words available for the amount of gratitude I have for Nicole. She was the best doula I could have dreamed of. When I went into labor she was right there through every contraction, push, cry spell and smile. She helped me so much with counterpressure during contractions, different laboring positions, holding my leg while pushing and always affirming me that I was doing an amazing job. She made sure my emotions were respected and that my wishes were always thought of. She was so kind to my husband as well, making sure he had everything he needed to be a successful partner in the birthing process as well. It didn’t stop there though. she was there through the entire 4th trimester when I needed some postpartum help as well. She drove out to get lunch with me when I just needed someone to talk to, helped me with breastfeeding questions and situations and gave me all the support a new mom dreams of. Should I ever have another baby, I will absolutely make sure Nicole is a part of the process. She makes you feel so validated and empowered, that you can take on anything. Thank you nicole from the bottom of our hearts.
