Testimonial for Emerald Ortiz

I just had a baby girl in the height of Covid in June 2020. This was my last pregnancy and I wanted to do things naturally for the first time. Unfortunately, my wish to have a natural waterbirth was derailed because of Covid. I was heartbroken, but then I met Emerald. She helped me find the strength and light that I didn’t know that I had within me. Talking to her was so calming! She provided me with the most gentle and informative prenatal and post-natal support. I love herbs and essential oils, so does she. It was nice to have things in common with my doula. Our conversations felt so fluid. When I went into labor, she helped me meet my number one birthing goal which was to have a low intervention natural birth. What I love the most about Emerald is that even though I can be a tricky person to deal with, she gets me... she gave me the space that I needed and never pressured me to do anything that I didn’t want to do. After birth, I felt like I gained a friend because she was always so consistent with checking up on me to see If I needed anything. I strongly believe that made a huge impact in my birthing experience. Her words of endearment and encouragement kept me strong so I didn’t fall into a postpartum depressive state like I did with my other pregnancies. I will always be forever grateful for the service that she provided, especially during this crazy time in our world. She made my partner feel so comfortable that even he reached out to her to talk at one point. Thank you for being there for us. Thank you for helping me bring my beautiful little Luna into this world. I couldn’t have done it without you!
