Whats not to be said about this amazing woman!

The minute I started conversing with Roman it instantly be came more than just a business relationship. Through my pregnancy i have been experiencing some of the worse hardship a person/mother could go through. Ro has been my rock and my confidante. Shes been there when even my family wasn't. 

She advocated for me so well during birth. Making sure nobody ever dismayed me or forced me into anything i didnt wanna do.

I really can't see my journey continuing without her!

I absolutely LOVE my doula Romanique! She believed in me when I didn't believe in myself. I wish I had Romanique as a Doula with my first pregnancy. She's been very supportive throughout my whole pregnancy. Romanique has went above and beyond her duties to make sure baby and I were taken care of . I had the BEST experience with Romanique during labor , she was very active, informative and consistently made sure I was comfortable during labor and afterwards. She is truly a blessing and is the PERFECT Doula! :)



Romanique is a wonderful person. I truly appreciate her and all that she has done for me. She has done so much outside of my laboring experience, and was very attentive in my laboring experience. During my labor, she was very attentive, supportive, and encouraging. I truly believe she’s walking in her spiritual gift to help. During my labor, I faced many challenges and fears, but her encouraging words, and the way she advocated for me helped me through it all. I truly believe she gave me the strength and love I needed to pull through. Her ability to connect and understand any fear during labor truly helped me. We were both in tears when baby came into the world. She made me feel powerful. I admire her so much. She’s become more than a doula to me, she became a friend I’ll always cherish in my heart. 



I first met Romanique in July of 2021. I was pregnant with my second child and wanted to ensure that I would have him naturally. A major reason for acquiring a doula was because I was afraid of a repeat of first birthing experience, which resulted in a c-section. I wanted someone who would advocate for me and work to help me have a safe delivery.

From the very beginning of meeting Romanique, we laid out a plan together to ensure that I'd have the birthing experience of my choice. Over the following months, we checked in with one another at least once a week. We discussed nutrition, exercise, and how keeping a positive mindset would help me attain my goals. Due to COVID, she was not able to accompany me to my doctor's appointments, but she did check in afterwards.

 As the time came closer for me to have my baby, we met multiple times a week via Zoom. She took the time to discuss birthing positions and practice breathing techniques with me. She also did multiple sessions where we would run-through movements on our birthing balls. 

On the day of delivery, she met my husband and I at the hospital. From the very beginning of my induction to giving birth, she was so supportive. She spoke up on my behalf to reiterate my written birth plan to the doctors and nurses. She also made sure that I continued moving and switching positions. She took the time to explain what was happening to me as a progressed through each stage of labor.

In the end, I was able to have a safe delivery and it was in the way of my choosing. I am so grateful for having my doula. She was so encouraging and full of knowledge. I know that I had the success that I had, largely in part,  to her. I am thankful that even a month later , I can still reach out to her to ask questions and express any concerns. My experience with Romanique has been great.

Roman is from my experience the best at what she does She is caring, attentive, knowledgeable, patient, friendly, understanding, she was everything I hoped for and more. Anyone who she has a chance to experience this journey is in more than capable hands. From the day we first talked she has had this energy about her that you can't help but feel and tap into. I appreciate all that she has done for me during the time we had together could not have done this without her. Roman has handled my pregnancy with the best tlc possible especially the labor n delivery cause that was a long night n early morning with both of us had barely gotten any sleep lol  esp cause only a few hours at my home trying to get my son to drop down I was calling her to meet me at the hospital where she and my partner got me to deliver a health baby boy(Aidyn) Naturally . From day 1 she has been prepared every step of the way pregnancy, delivery, postpartum. Everything we had discussed and planned she tried to stick too if it was possible. I love Romanique she is the absolute best.

I had an amazing experience with Romanique. She continuously advocated for me throughout my delivery. Even though I was induced last minute she showed up and delivered! She helped make my delivery as Smooth as possible every step of the way. She was the best support person anyone could ask for. I would definitely recommend her to any new expecting mommas I know!
