Testimonial for Michi Arguedas

Michi was my doula for the birth of our second child. With her support we had an unmedicated natural birth at Kaiser, Oakland. Grounded, attuned, intuitive, warm and highly knowledgeable about birth, she was everything I needed in a birth support. From our very first interview at the start of my 3rd trimester, Michi had a way of integrating herself into our home that felt familiar and comfortable. This was also true of her presence at the hospital, where she was a graceful bridge/translator between us and the Kaiser staff, and received multiple compliments from the nurses.

What I think Michi did really well was to be a solid attuned presence through every moment of my labor. I felt so held and supported, especially in the moments of intense physical and emotional sensation. She gave us immediate and easy to grasp advice in response to the hospital’s offers of interventions, helping me decide which techniques were aligned with my values and which weren’t. And before and after the birth she has been super accessible and responsive in giving me great support by text and in our 3 pre/post partum sessions.

I highly recommend Michi as a Doula. She will bring an abundance of heart, wisdom and ease to your birth journey. We never know how it will go once the birth process begins, so be sure to choose a doula who can ride with you through the magical and unexpected waves as you prepare to meet your baby!
