Testimonial for Emerald Ortiz

I know that Emerald’s presence and support at my birth enabled me to have the natural child birth I knew I was capable of. When I first met Emerald I was drawn to her warmth and enthusiasm for childbirth education. In my prenatal visits she helped me feel more confident in the birth process. I wondered how her outgoing personality would fit in the birth room and was so impressed by her. When she arrived to support us it was like she had turned on a different part of herself. One that was in tune with everyone in the room, especially me. She was helpful to the nursing staff, made my partner feel more confident in supporting me and never overshadowed him, and responded to each of my contractions with counter pressure massage that helped me get through them drug free. I know I wouldn’t have been able to take them for as long as I did without her support. All I had to do was make a small noise and she would dash over to me and apply strong pressure to my back. She did this for over 12 hours. When it was time to push, she was on one side of me and my husband was on the other. They were both incredibly encouraging and after our beautiful baby was born and snuggled in for skin-to-skin Emerald let us have family time. She has been checking in since birth and so far we had one helpful postpartum visit. I can’t wait to see her again for our final visit. I will highly recommend a full spectrum doula to any woman having a baby and they can trust Emerald to help them have a calm and comfortable childbirth.
