Testimonial for Sheilena Martinez

Words cannot express our gratitude for having you there with us through the birth of our baby . My water broke just before midnight ; and even as a back up  doula, Sheliena was able to come immediately to support us at 3am!

It was a blessing to have her with us during our long, hard labor and birth. She was warm, welcoming, encouraging, and all over human in her approach to my anxiety and in making it her mission that I have an empowering first birth. She endured nearly 34 hours next to us in the hospital. She lifted a cloud of worry from us because I knew that she would tell us what was normal or not and she could also anticipate how I was feeling at any given stage of labor.

Besides being my labor coach (using all sorts of pain management and calming techniques) she was a team player in working alongside the midwife and nurses at the hospital to determine next steps and assisting in all the childbirthing demands. She also advocated for me with the medical staff about some decisions she knew weren’t in my best interests based on how my labor was going and in understanding my wishes.

She was awesome and overall  we had a great experience having her as our back up doula.
