Being pregnant for the first time, I felt very overwhelmed and I didn’t know who could provide me the best resources, education, and be a coach through the birthing experience. Close friends recommended seeking out a Doula. I am so fortunate to have found Naomi.

 


Not only does she speak Spanish, but also has years of experience working at birthing centers and home deliveries. Naomi is a very calming force who seeks to be there for her clients around the clock to answer questions.

 


I had a hospital delivery planned, but plans for the birth was not what I could’ve predicted. I’m grateful to have had Naomi present that night. She stayed with me overnight and was wonderfully advocating for me.

 


Despite the unpredictable series of events that took place for me that night I can still look back, and say I had a positive experience. Thank you Naomi ??

Naomi was so wonderful to work with in my first 3 months as a first-time postpartum mom! From the very first day she helped me figure out how to take care of myself. She was a literal lifesaver for us when I had to return to the hospital for PP pre-eclampsia treatment and my husband and 5-day old were home alone-- she jumped right in and helped with overnights even though we weren't expecting to need them, and it was HUGE. She was flexible, reliable, and always a calm and confident presence. Cannot recommend her highly enough!!!

Naomi was supposed to be my homebirth midwife assistant but when the birth ended up at the hospital she worked as a doula for me and what a gift that was! From the first video chat with Naomi I felt connected to her. She offered an acceptance and understanding of my needs, something not often found in maternal care. She was very accepting of what I wanted and honored how I felt. At the hospital, she advocated for the birth I wanted, even when the birth staff was hesitant. She asked intelligent questions to the staff, showing them that I could get the VBAC birth I was looking for. When I started to lose faith in the process, she was the mirror I needed- reminding me of what my goals were and encouraging me to stay true to them.  My husband and I often say that a large reason I was able to VBAC in a hospital was due to Naomi's advocacy and guidance. I am so thankful our paths crossed and was lucky to have Naomi on my side.

I had the privilege of having Naomi as my birth doula, and I cannot express enough gratitude for the unwavering support and guidance she provided throughout the entire birthing process. Right from the start, Naomi established a genuine connection, taking the time to get to know me and my previous birth experience. Her empathetic and compassionate nature instantly put me at ease. During labor, Naomi exhibited remarkable resilience and adaptability. Her ability to navigate unexpected twists and turns with grace and composure was truly impressive. She provided a reassuring presence, helping me stay focused and empowered even in challenging moments. She advocated for me by communicating with the nurses and doctors to make sure my opinion got heard. In summary, Naomi is not just a skilled professional; she is a compassionate advocate and a source of strength. If you're seeking a birth doula who brings expertise, empathy, and unwavering support to your birthing journey, look no further. My family and I are forever grateful for the positive impact she had on our birthing experience.

Naomi was my doula for the birth of our son in August 2022 at Beverly Hospital. My hope was to have a low intervention labor and delivery, and I knew finding a doula would increase my chances. I had no idea just how critical having her in the room with me would be. Several times after labor I remember telling my family: "I don’t think I could have done that without her!"

I knew she would be reliable when the day arrived. She was responsive and communicative throughout early labor. When I had several hours of challenging back labor, she was INCREDIBLE. She spent hours giving me intense hands on help. (She subbed in my husband temporarily and he was sore!) She very literally made my natural birth possible.

Beyond the physically exhausting hands on support, she also helped me remain confident and calm throughout labor. She was my advocate in the room, acting as a liaison with hospital staff, representing my birth wishes and helping to translate what was going on for my husband.

I would recommend her to any mama-to-be, but she will be especially helping to someone who has a low intervention birth plan. She is made for this!!! Even the midwifery staff and nurses commented on how wonderful she was work alongside. Thank you, Naomi!
