Testimonial for Emerald Ortiz

I have had the opportunity to work with Emerald on both the personal and professional side. I first invited her to hold a couple of doula informational sessions at my job, Blue Cross and Blue Shield. She was very knowledgable and well spoken when it came to sharing more about the vital role that doulas play in supporting the emotional well-being of pregnant people. I enjoyed working with her and knew that when I got pregnant, I would want her to be my doula. Shortly after I became pregnant, my husband and I got a chance to connect with her personally. From day 1, she centered her support around our specific needs. She took the time to get to know us, our style, and how we envisioned our pregnancy, labor and delivery experience to be. Her prenatal visits were extremely helpful to us as new parents and she was always a text away when we had questions. We took time to plan out my birth plan and discussed the ways that I wanted to be supported. When my water broke on a Tuesday morning, I texted her immediately. I laboured at home for half of the day, as we had originally planned and she stayed connected with me throughout the day to coach me through. She arrived at the hospital soon after we had gotten there. She immediately familiarized herself with our nurse and doctor, and set up the room as we had previously discussed. We had the lights off, tea lights around the room, and lavender oil burning on a diffuser. She also started helping me through contractions, coaching me through my breathing exercises and with massages. She helped keep me cool, calm and collected. Emerald worked with my husband for the pushing piece and was there when we welcomed our baby girl. We are both so thankful to have had her be a part of our birth team, providing us support and being the liasion with the hospital staff. She checked in with us after the birth and ensured we had everything we needed postpartum. I would highly recommend Emerald for your doula services.
