Testimonial for Sheila Gannam-Rivera

If you are looking for a sign to book Sheila, this is should be it!

I met Sheila more towards the end of my pregnancy, but her impact on me has been quite profound. She has a uniquely calming energy about her, she is very patient and also emotionally present.

Like almost every expecting mother, you have this dreamy scenario of how you expect your labor and delivery to go, but the truth is that it's hardly ever so. That was my situation, but Sheila was there to walk me through it all - and I mean all 50+ hours of my labor! Her steadfast support, her encouraging words, the way she would listen and do exactly as you say is just what you need in such a time.

One of my best experiences with her was on the dawn of the day before I delivered my baby, my surges were so intense, I was throwing up about every hour and I obviously could not get any sleep in. She drove to at that late hour to help me with some breathing exercises, talks, massages and a shower which helped me feel so much better mentally and emotionally and gave me a more positive outlook towards my delivery.

This is just to say Sheila is the kind of doula who would put you first not just because you are probably paying her to, but it's the type of person she is. She is never hard to reach and always there when needed and or necessary. There is so much more I can say about her, but I will keep it short. I am blessed to have had her as my doula and I 10/10 recommend!
