I reached out to boober to find a doula literally 1 week before my due date due to apprehension with having a hospital birth and wanting to have the most natural birth possible. Shamika stepped in and literally two days later I went into labor. Prior to that she had me answer a questionnaire about what I would and would not like during my labor process in the hospital and drew up a birth plan that helped in advocating for what I needed in the hospital. She spoke up for me when I was asked about having a resident involved in my care since it didn't follow the birth plan. She provided coaching throughout to help me to keep moving to reach my goal. She provided encouragement when I felt I couldn't do it anymore. She provided acupressure over my back to relieve the intense back labor. She was a God send! So glad she was able to work with me last minute!
