Attends hospital births? All Hospitals
Women giving birth at hospitals especially need support, so they can have a positive experience, despite all the hospital protocols. They need the informational support, so they know what to ask and what to request.

Attends birth center births? All Birth Centers
A birth center is like a home away from home, and has a more relaxed atmosphere.

Attends home births? Any Home Birth
Home birth is safe and recommended, in my opinion, for most women who are low risk. Being in your own environment prevents baby from being exposed to foreign bacteria that maybe have short term and long term effects to their guts and therefore to their immune system among other things.

 As a nurse I knew about the services offered by a doula during labor and delivery. In the hospital MRMC I got Daniela's phone number, the same week contacted her and talked for a while on the phone. What impressed me on our first date with Daniela was her capability of listening, professionalism (as she brought pamphlets and educational material for us as parents.), Her dedication and the fact that without knowing her beforehand gave me peace and confidence. My husband and I decided to hire her services to be with us. We met a second time to practice exercises for relaxation, positions and plan of delivery. Daniela gave us confidence, peace and wanted to know what we liked (both me and my husband) for the purpose of being more assertive with pain management strategies that we would be using during labor. After the master plan we had for birth, we had to change some things, since I had medical complications that took me to the hospital two weeks before the due date. I was admitted at 12:00 noon for delivery induction. My husband called Daniela and she came to the hospital quickly. It was a difficult decision making process for my physical health and the baby. I was induced at 5:00 pm and I began having contractions around 7:00 pm. Daniela was with me throughout all time (17 hours). Applying pressure of massage, aromatherapy, music, relaxation and meditation and prayer according to my desires. Daniela has an art to support, to helping me and my husband throughout the process. Daniela was in the room, and helped with the exercises, breathing, took me to the bathroom and gave me a lot of positive strength at all times. Daniela never forget my husband. She gave him a spot and participation too in the process. Daniela never interfered with doctors and nurses. Neither in the decision making by us as parents / spouses. It was an intimate and very special moment !!! Daniela Thanks for being there (for speaking English and Spanish !!!)
