Client Testimonials for Inka Brown

Post a testimonial for Inka Brown



Inka was wonderful! She help guide us through the birthing process and experience. She really helped us get our minds in a good place in preperation for our daughters birth. She answered all of our questions in a way that we could understand. Though our labor and hospital timeline ended up being quite quick, she arrived at the hospital on short notice and was a great support while there. We would highly recommend her to anyone searching for a knowledgable and professional doula! Thank you Inka!

From the moment we met with Inka I knew she would be an invaluable member of my birth team. Every prenatal visit I came away feeling even more confident about childbirth. From the physical exercises we did, to the conversations she sparked between me and my husband, Inka was exactly what I needed from a doula. My labor was nothing like I had planned (induced, 30 hour labor) but Inka made us feel comfortable and relaxed the whole way through. We absolutely love Inka. She was such an integral part of my son's birth and  I don't think I could've delivered this baby without her!



Inka is amazing! We hired her to help with the birth of our first child and could not have been more happy with the result.  We found out that our baby was presenting breech during our week 34 doctor visit. During our first prenatal visits Inka instructed us on positions and techniques to help get our baby to flip (spinning babies). We were successful and I was able to deliver vaginally! During our second prenatal visit, she shared her wealth of knowledge and talked us through everything to expect when we went to the hospital and helped us finalize our birth plan. 

Inka's support, guidance, and flexibility during labor was invaluble. She helped coach and guide me during labor and was there to support my husband so that he could be dedicated to supporting me. Inka knew just what to say and do to empower me and keep me centered and relaxed as possible. She is an expert at reading the room, and struck the perfect balance between advocating for me when I needed it and stepping back when I needed to discuss changes in my birth plan with my doctor. She worked seamlessly with the hospital staff at Tuoro and was a calming and positive energy in the room.

Where do I even start? From the moment I saw Inka's photograph on the Nola Nesting website, I felt an instant draw towards her and immediately knew that I wanted her as my doula. Boy, were my instincts correct here. I consider myself to be a pretty strong and independent person, but when I say I could not have given birth without her (despite having a very supportive husband, as well!), there is no truer statement. She was with me for a 30+ hour labor, calmly and warmly supporting me through every contraction. Her presence is calming, her input vital, and use of her is essential. Having her as my doula was easily the best decision I made regarding my delivery. If you are searching for a doula, look no further. In my mind, she is the best out there, and I'm forever grateful for her presence during such a special time ♥?



Inka was incredible. I had a great labor and delivery experience (my first child) and she is a big reason why. Inka was supportive of my preferences to labor at home as long as possible and she helped give me the confidence to advocate for myself at the hospital. My husband was unsure about having a doula but was so grateful for her help and guidance during labor. Inka is knowledgeable, caring, and supportive. I hope to have her by my side for future children.

I chose Inka as my doula because she was a good listener and had a calm presence. Both of these qualities served me and my husband well in preparing for birth and during delivery. 
Inka is certified in Spinning babies and healing touch. She showed us exercises that helped prepare me for labor. As a result, I had a great, unmedicated delivery. Having Inka there made a huge difference. My husband and I felt supported. She did a great job of advocating for me  while in the hospital.  Before delivery, when I asked, she shared lots of information with me so that I could make informed decisions for the birth of our first child. 
My husband was very skeptical in the beginning when I wanted to use a doula. In the end, he was her biggest fan. When we made the last payment, he said, "that's it?..Inka is worth way more than that."

I highly recommend working with Inka! Among her many excellent qualities, her wisdom, kindness, experience and familiarity with the birth, postpartum and medical experience made her my ideal doula. Immediately after we had constructed my ideal birth plan, an emergency situation made that plan impossible. Throughout it all, I am most grateful that Inka was quickly accessible and/or at my side, to help me better understand my medical situation and make the best available choices for mine and my baby’s health and safety.



I was so greatful to have had Inka's support during my pregnancy, labor, and delivery with our daughter (first and only child). Our daughter was a surprise (I'd planned not to have children) so I was very apprehensive about pregnancy and birth, both the physical and psychological aspects. Inka was so instrumental in helping me prepare and I attribute my easy labor and delivery to her calm presence, knowledge and techniques. Everything went way more smoothly than I could've imagined! I am very impressed with Inka's dedication to continually seeking out new information and training (such as Hypnobirthing, Spinning Babies, etc) and would recommend her to anyone looking for support and evidence-based techniques during their pregnancy journey.

Inka is a dedicated and knowledgeable doula. She helped my family so much during my pregnancy and birth of my second baby. My labor and delivery took about 20 hours and she stayed from the beginning to the end. During my pregnancy, Inka provided information and training for hypnobirthing techniques and positions that were useful to move the baby during labor. She encouraged me to ask questions at the hospital and gave me information I needed about my options during the labor and delivery stages. She was available and communicative during the months leading up to childbirth when I had questions or concerns and she checked in on me at times as well. Inka also came to visit me postpartum to support, check in about breastfeeding, and discuss my labor and delivery. We are all very grateful for her support :)



Ruth and I had a wonderful experience with Inka. She's the absolute best, and made the birth a pleasure. She helped remove a tremendous amount of fear and anxiety. She helped with figuring out the process. She really cared for us once the baby was born. She's also a complete expert, a calming presence, and now, a great friend to us and our new baby.
