Testimonial for Emerald Ortiz

This was my first experience having a doula to support my pregnancy and I am so grateful that I got the chance to work with Emerald. After experiencing two consecutive second trimester losses for different reasons, being pregnant a third time with no living children was extremely scary and anxiety inducing for me. Therefore, I knew that I would need additional support this pregnancy to ensure that I had the best outcome possible. When I first reached out to Emerald, she immediately made me feel comfortable and was empathetic to my pregnancy after losses journey. She was intentional about checking in with me throughout my pregnancy, even during the early stages and was inclusive of my partner which to me made a world of a difference. As labor got closer, Emerald really empowered me to trust myself and to feel more confident about my pregnancy, labor and delivery. Her suggestions of hypnobirthing and mindfulness was extremely helpful especially during labor and delivery, where I really had to put those techniques to use. Being affirmed by Emerald made me feel heard, which was important to me as a loss mom. Even in my most anxious moments, Emerald remained calm and was able to provide me with the support that I needed. She spent over a day with my partner and I during labor and delivery and was patient, calm and supportive during that whole time making us feel important and that our birth mattered. I would recommend Emerald to any mother especially a mom who experienced loss. Although I had an amazing team at the hospital, I don't think I would have been able to feel as comfortable, calm and empowered as I did the day of my delivery without Emerald's support.
