Having Gena as my doula this pregnancy gave me the all natural pregnancy and birth I had always imagined and wanted. From the first day she came to my home to meet I knew she had a genuine passion and love for serving women. Gena from day one always listened to me and listened to my wants, needs, and concerns and offered sisterly support, confidentiality, as well as solutions when needed!! She is a true professional and expertise in her field! From attending appointments with me to answering my 2am calls to just talk me thru worries, to being right there as my guide and support during the physical labor and delivery she was the one person I could count on!! I could not see any of my future pregnancies or births without her being there! She prepared me mentally before the birth with many tools to use to achieve the birth plan we created. During the labor and birth she was hands on with me as well as lended the space for Hubby to assist me. Her flow and energy during the birth was applauded by nurses and my family members. She allotted not only me the support I needed but also my family members the opportunity to relax and enjoy the birth as well. Gena is truly working her gift and she is open, honest, and a true gem to any woman that she serves. I am forever thankful for Gena!

Well, where do I start... pregnancy was definitely an emotional roller coaster for me. I'm so happy to have been blessed with such a wonderful Doula. I had no knowledge of what a Doula even was until a great friend informed me. Just having her help to provide my pregnancy & birth with extra support, guidance and love was a major blessing. Whenever I needed to just talk she was there for me, whenever I had a question with what my body was going through she was there for me, having Gena as a Doula was like having a second mother! If having a second child is in my future I will be sure to have Gena with me every step of the way. When it was time to deliver my baby, I decided to go natural and without her support coaching me every step of the way I don't think I could've done it! She kept me at peace, reminded me to stay strong & calm , and that all this pain I was experiencing was going to be worth it! She was absolutely right! I can't thank Gena enough for what she has done for my family and I! Such a phenomenal woman! Thank you Gena for everything! We love you tons!!
