Testimonial for Nicole Sawyers Todd, CLD, CPPD, HCHD, CHCE, SM

Hiring Nicole as my doula was easily one of the best decisions my husband and I made throughout my pregnancy. As a first time mom, I had a lot of anxiety about pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period. I had heard that doulas make all the difference, so we took a chance on Nicole. When we first met, she was the perfect combination of "crunchy granola" and evidence-based hard science. She met with us twice before my son's birth, and each time she came equipped with tips and tricks that eased my anxiety and helped me mentally prepare for my due date. Nicole was always considerate of our perspective, adapted her methods to meet our needs, and helped us feel prepared and supported the whole time. During labor, I felt immediately at ease when Nicole arrived. She somehow picked up on the things I needed in every moment. After laboring for some time, my doctors saw my baby was in distress and ordered a crash C-Section. Through no fault of my own, my baby needed help. It was so reassuring to know that my husband would be supported while I was under general anesthesia. I delivered a healthy baby boy and am so grateful that Nicole was waiting in the recovery room with a calming spirit and a firm handle on how to support me and my new baby. During my two postpartum visits, Nicole helped me navigate some tricky parts of new parenting, but most importantly she helped me process my delivery. I felt so comfortable confiding in her and felt supported in my role as a new mom. I am very grateful for Nicole and would recommend her without hesitation to anyone considering partnering with her in their parenting journey.
