Working with Noshaba was the best part of my pregnancy and birth experience. She was incredibly knowledgable, caring, and empowering. She supported me and my partner in articulating the type of labor and birth experience we were hoping for - and was there every step of the way. She offered physical, emotional, and spiritual support. In the moments when I felt most afraid and unsure of myself, Noshaba was there to offer guidance, courage, and help me tap into my own strenght. I was able to endure 12 hours of unmedicated labor - something I never thought I had the strength or courage to accomplish - with Noshaba's care, affirmations, and guidance. Besides meeting my baby, working with Noshaba was best part of my labor experience!

As first time parents, my partner and I had a lot of questions and concerns about everything! From the pregnancy to the delivery to everything afterward with parenthood, we didn't know where to start. Noshaba came highly recommended from our friends. When I first met her she was warm, confident, knowledgeable, and funny. Noshaba was so thoughtful in sharing all the information and resources and was always eager to answer our questions. I loved that we got to know all about her, her family, and her birth story with her kids. She really prepared us well and was so intentional in sharing what we should expect from each other and from her when it came to the labor and delivery.

When my partner went into labor around midnight we contacted Noshaba in the early morning hours and to our amazement she was really responsive and helpful during those first few hours. We were in constant communication and I felt really held and backed up while also supporting my partner. When she arrived at the hospital Noshaba was so in tune with the moment and my partner's stage of labor. She was attentive and caring and a real advocate for us during the whole process. I was so grateful we had all invested time to getting to know one another really well beforehand and built so much rapport. When I think back to that day, we really could not have done it without her. I am so grateful to Noshaba and her family for her care and wisdom as a doula. I cannot imagine a better person to have had in the room with us when our baby was born.

We love you Noshaba!!

I've given birth twice and Noshaba was there both times. I can't imagine going through pregnancy, labor, and delivery without her. She was so generous with her time getting my husband and me prepared for childbirth, and she skillfully and thoughtfully guided us every step of the way. I am certain that my labor and delivery went as smoothly as they did because of Noshaba. I wanted to give birth with a minimum of medical intervention, but I was also very nervous about my ability to handle the pain. With Noshaba's physical presence, her emotional support, and lots of hip squeezing I was able to have the kind of births that I was hoping for. I recommend Noshaba to any pregnant person, she is simply great.
