From the very beginning of myself encountering Erika as my doula she was on the ball and rolling. We immediately discussed my preferences and expectations for my birth plan for before during and after. Due to my preference for a natural birth Erika reccomended a book to me to educate myself more and to touch on things that I actually didn't know about. The book is Natural Hospital Birth by Cynthia Gabriel and it opened my eyes to things I hadn't even thought about. Additionally Erika made herself available to my fiance and I to practice robozo techniques for comfort and discuss and involve my fiance (who was absolutely clueless) to have a better understanding of all the things to expect for delivery. Fast forward to being in labor Erika was on top of checking in with me about heading to the hospital and arrived to assist me down 3 floors of my apartment building to get there. When we got to the hospital she made sure I was continuously comfortable, hydrated and that all of my wishes were heard. Thanks to her I avoided being forced by the Dr. to accept getting administered an I.V which was my top wish for my birth plan, I had a COMPLETELY natural hospital birth. She assisted and comforted my fiance, mother and my baby girls godmother through my delivery as well. As part of my birth plan she made sure to photograph and document my labor for me. I was lucky to have someone who was so dedicated to studying my birth plan from A to Z.
Thanks to Erika I gave birth to my baby girl with the greatest confidence and comfort possible. She also continues to check in with me to make sure I'm healing well physically anhd mentally. If you are seeking an amazing individual to stand by you during one of the most amazing experiences of your life I would recommend Erica's services every time.
