My partner and I can't express enough how grateful we were to have Adriana present at our daughter's birth. In addition to her tremendous knowledge and experience, she wrapped us in calming and nurturing energy that lasted us throughout our little one's journey to the outside. Thank you for helping us tune into ourselves and our baby, and bring our kiddo into the world in the way that was right for us, Adriana!
Adriana is absolutely amazing! We hired her recommended from our physician in hopes of a VBAC with our second birth. She is an invaluable and skilled doula who without a doubt will make your birthing experience more positive, less stressful, and more peaceful. There were so many tools that Adriana provided that I did not even think of even having had a baby before. My VBAC was a success due in large part to having Adriana on our team and I knew the minute we met her that she was a good fit. She also did a great job of quieting my mind and worries. If you are searching for a doula for your birth journey, you will not be disappointed with Adriana - she is great and works very well with the hospital staff for a seamless experience! Thank you!
Adriana was absolutely amazing!!! I whole heartedly recommend her to anyone and everyone. Not only did she help to make my birth experience positive, ( helping to get my baby to turn alleviate back labor pain, make sure hospital staff knew our wishes) but also helped inform myself and my husband during pregnancy so we could make decisons about care that where right for us. We are so glad she was there to support us, with her I was able to have the drug free natural birth I wanted.
Adriana was our doula for our first and second child and we could not imagine bringing our children earth-side without her. She’s incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and nurturing. All qualities we wanted in a support person for two of the most important life events. The work and preparation she puts in leading up to birth made us feel calm and prepared. Then, her presence and knowledge during birth made for a safe and welcoming environment and ended with us getting exactly the type of births we envisioned.
I first came to know Adriana through her Birthful Podcast at the beginning of my pregnancy. I love to listen to podcasts and found hers to be by far the most informative and aligned with my own sensibilities and way of learning. It was by coincidence that she mentioned living in Rochester so I reached out to her regarding her doula services. I was thrilled to find out that she was available at our due month. We had a couple prenatal meetings that my husband and I found very useful, she was very knowledgeable, understanding, patient, and open.
As our due date came and went, Adriana was incredibly helpful in putting me at ease and helping me make the right decision for us as we faced an induction, which was, of course, not in our birth plan! 11 days past our due date, our daughter was born via induction in the best possible scenario given the lack of spontaneous labor. My husband and I both know that Adriana played a key role in helping us have the labor, delivery, and recovery that set our family off to a great start.
Our daughter is now three months old and Adriana's podcast is still a great resource for me and she has been generous in providing contacts as needed, she is very well-connected in the Rochester "birth world." I can't recommend Adriana enough and look forward to having her be with us for our next child's birth!
Adriana's podcast has wonderfully relevant and useful information!
We were lucky enough to have Adriana as our doula with both of our children, 6 years apart. Adriana's understanding of birth goes beyond biology and hospital protocol. Her wisdom, intuition, and passion for all things birthful is deep and otherwordly, and at the same time so simple and down to earth.
We couldn't have been more present and prepared before, during, and after, for the monumental journey of labor and delivery with all its twists and turns and surprises, and we have Adriana to thank for that. Her ability to support the birthing mom and also mom's partner (especially with her customized toolkit) is unparalleled. And she has a great sense of humor, to boot!
We're not sure how people have babies without doulas and we have no idea why you would when it's possible to have such an incredible experience, with someone like Adriana there every step of the way.
Adriana is an amazing doula! She supported my husband and I through both my deliveries, one being a particularly difficult one, as my daughter was stillborn. She was so loving and calming and brought great energy into the delivery room. Her prenatal and post partum help was also very informative. I actually learned more from her than the prenatal class my husband and I took!
Before I even met Adriana, I found her to be an incredible resource through her Birthful Podcasts! Upon meeting her, my husband and I found her to be knowledgeable, passionate, and just the kind of person we wanted to share our birth experience with! As our Doula, Adriana was thoughtful, supportive and resourceful. She created the space we needed to navigate labor on our own terms and because of her, our birth story is one we are very proud of! Thank you, Adriana! we will absolutely call her when we are pregnant with baby #2!
