My midwife recommended me to find a doula and I was very reluctant. I didn't think it was necessary and I don't feel comfortable with most people. She changed all and proved me wrong. She is very caring and knew how to respect my space in the times I didn't want to be touch anymore. She has a calming voice and words of support to guide you trough the pain. If I had another child I would definitely contact her to be my doula again.
I am very glad and grateful I had her as my doula.
Gabriella was a delight to have with me! She got to know myself and my husband (who was going to be in the room with me). She kept checking up on me not only before labor but after having my son! She gave advice but also showed no judgement on my personal choices and supported me. While my birth ended up being very different than what I wanted (unplanned c section due to preeclampsia and no progression after 2 days of induction. I did not have an epidural so I got that part at least!), she waited with my mom until after we came out of surgery and made sure we were settled. She has a calm and empowering voice! I would recommend her!
Gabrielle was amazing. I had never had a doula (this was my fourth child) and I has always been my husband and I. So to have someone else there was great. She is so soft spoken and encouraging. Made sure I was as comfortable as possible. Putting cold compresses on my neck, pushing on my leg/hip when needed but also allowing me to labor. Her support was so wonderful. To have such a gentle soul be present from even before the birth to a few weeks after was truly a treasure. Thank you so much for being there through everything.
I had my baby boy in September of 2018 and Gabrielle was my Doula. It was truly a blessing having her by my side during labor. She gave so much support before, during, and after labor. I honestly couldn’t imagine doing another natural birth without her. Just when I thought I couldn’t take it anymore she was there to remind me of what I wanted. Doulas are considered birthing companions but with Gabrielle it was more than that. It felt like I had gained another family member. She is the blessing I didn’t know I needed. You will not regret having her as your Doula.
Our first son, Sebastian was born in Wisconsin. We used a midwife, but he was born in a hospital. Fast forward four years later, and now we were getting ready for the arrival of our second son while living in Florida. We knew immediately we wanted to use a midwife and decided to give birth in a birthing center. That’s where I first heard and got recommended to Gabrielle. She came to our house a few months before our son’s birth and she gave me an immediate sense of comfort and reassurance. We met at our house a few times before the birth. During our sessions, she assured me that what I was hearing would be the same tone of voice that I would hear during the birth. Just calm. We went over my birthing plan, what I liked and not, and also plan B in case things didn’t go as planned. When the day came, I kept Gabrielle updated throughout the day and when the time came to go to the birthing center, my Mother-in-Law texted her to let her know we were on our way. She was already there when we arrived. I was in a lot of pain as it was my first time feeling REAL contractions and no medication. I was so happy to have my husband, my mom and mother-in-law there with me, but in all honesty, I wouldn’t have been able to get through that time and that pain without Gabrielle. When I knew a contraction was coming, I would yell “Gabrielle!” and she knew exactly what to do. Her presence, her voice and her massages, kept me going. To this day my mom jokes and says that all I said during that time was Gabrielle’s name. Nothing else! Hahaha. I had never considered a Doula until we got Gabrielle’s contact information. And after our birthing experience, I can’t imagine not having her there with me (us). She was absolutely fantastic! And we will be forever grateful.
My family took to Gabrielle very easily. She was very helpful with information and support regarding my worried for becoming a mom of two under 2. Her incouraging words during my labor process was needed. She was awesome and I purposely kept her number because I wouldn't anyone else when we do finally have another addition. My husband even noted he liked he assistance and wanted her next time as well.
Plus we named our baby after her lol Phoenix Gabriel ♥???????????
She is amazing, God bless
