Amber

Nicole joined my fifth birth in 2018. Though I had two previous natural births, I’d never had a doula, and I wasn’t sure I would need one since I knew I’d get an epidural and because I was induced.
We spoke throughout the pregnancy about past experiences, expectations, fears, and desires. She was easy to talk to, completely understanding, and took time to research options for me.

I’m so glad I had her join me. My husband is a wonderful support and has been with me through all of my births, but there really is something different about a doula and the presence of women.
She was on the lookout for how to better serve me and noticed things no one else did, including myself. It was a relief to know someone was there to help me, never shy about asking nurses for information, leaving me free to labor before the epidural.
Nicole tried different pressure and massage techniques tirelessly. She captured photos after the birth, provided snacks, water, and offered breastfeeding support.

Despite the distance, she made a postpartum visit to talk about the experience, check on me and Lucy, and make sure there wasn’t anything we were needing or struggling with, which was greatly appreciated.

We have many friends and family looking out for us, but having someone to offer specific and informed care before, during, and after birth is a blessing of another kind. I highly recommend Nicole and her services. She’s kind, she’s a mother, not only does she understand (both from experience and continual education) pregnancy, labor, delivery, babies, and motherhood, it’s also her passion. She loves what she does and she’ll go to any length to make sure those experiences are as wonderful for you as they can be.
Birth is unpredictable but I’m positive having the support and advocate I had in Nicole was a large factor in how happy I was with Lucy’s birth.
