My husband and I were very happy with Naama's services. She was always available when we needed her and gave me her undivided attention during labor and delivery. She was so considerate and thoughtful by always checking up on me and making herself available to us no matter what the situation. She is well educated and has got the best books for her clients to read, (my favorite, The Happiest Baby on the Block). Lastly, she was so easy going, open minded, and easy to talk to. We highly recommend Machado’s doula services.
Amanda is an amazing doula. We started working with her from the beginning of my pregnancy, she was always so helpful, loving and caring. This was my first pregnancy and she helped us a lot trying to figure out what type of birth we wanted. She explained every single option we had, whether it was having a midwife or delivering at a hospital, using an epidural or not, leaving the vernix on baby, delayed cord clamping and so much more. My husband and I felt like she explained everything in a very detailed and loving way that it was easy for us to know from the beginning how we wanted things to happen. Having a doula for me was a life changing experience, my husband was there for me every step of the way but I felt having a doula was the encouragement and motivation I needed to help me during my labor and delivery. I had a non-medicated birth and I couldn't have done it without Amanda. Her constant words of affirmation helped me get through the pain, she would constantly remind me that I was doing a good job and that I could do it. She was a huge blessing for me, she was the emotional support I needed to help me deliver my baby. She was not only there throughout my whole pregnancy but she has been an amazing support after I had my baby. Being a first time mom is hard, you never know if you are doing things right, and she keeps encouraging me and she has helped me so much with breastfeeding. She was there for me when I had to take my son to his tongue tie revision and helped with the exercises I had to give him. There are no words to describe my appreciation for Amanda and all that she has done for me, if you are pregnant and looking for someone that can be there for you guiding you through and just overall helping you have an amazing birth experience I truly and 100% recommend her, you will not regret it.
