If you're looking for a doula that is knowledgeable, fun, easy going, and thoroughly enjoys their job, then you're looking in the right place. Niki is an experienced doula, who provides hands on training, and is constantly available. 
I could go on and on about Niki, but I'll try to keep it short and sweet. 

Every time I was concerned about something, Niki was there talking me through it! She was always there loving on my husband and I and supporting us. And one night when I was especially concerned, she drove all the way to my house just to check up on us and it was 10 o'clock at night! What an angel! 

By the time I was going into labor, Niki was on the phone and asked if we needed anything, she even stopped at the grocery store for us. Things were progressing so quickly with her. She made my husband feel confident in his ability to help and strengthened our connection through the whole thing. 

Niki, is an all around wonderful person in every way and it definitely shines through her work. She truly cares for her clients and her authenticity provides such a tranquil environment. I love Niki so much and am so glad that my husband and I have had the privilege to work with her.

Niki far exceeded our expectations! Through a long labor she was there for every step. She helped us make hard decisions and her knowledge of the birth process was so helpful. She not only supported me in labor, but also my husband. She guided him to be the best birth partner I could imagine. She gave him breaks when he needed them and helped him know exactly what I needed. She ultimately helped me achieve the natural birth I wanted. When a medical emergency arose, she was amazing at helping me stay calm through it. I believe she helped me avoid some serious mental trauma by being there for me through the hardest part. When I was taken to surgery she stayed with my husband and supported him. She stayed calm and steady the whole time. Niki works to create a deep meaningful relationship with her clients so that we were totally comfortable spending hours with her! I know she will always be a part of our lives.

Niki was an invaluable asset to our birth team. My labor and birth experience ended up being extremely long (two full nights and an entire day) yet despite the lengthy labor Niki was able to provide continuous support. She was present throughout the multiple days at the hospital and able to provide wisdom during that time: making sure I rested when needed, stop and consider all the options possible when faced with a decision, did everything we could to try and naturally get my body to get labor moving. After having to get induced because of a medical necessity Niki was able to help me maintain a positive outlook and stay strong and calm and have an unmedicated positive birth experience even after having a very long labor and pitocin induction. We can’t thank Niki enough!

Niki exceeded my expectations as a doula and I would highly recommend her to anyone needing an advocate, support person, or calming presence in the delivery room. As a NICU nurse I’ve been a part of hundreds of deliveries, yet I had never been a part of such a positive and empowering birth experience until the labor and delivery of my second child. This was our first experience with a birth coach and I am so thankful we chose Niki Schemanski for the role. Niki conveyed such a peace and professionalism that I felt so confident in our choice as our doula for the birth of my son.
