Testimonial for Shamika Matos

I could not have asked for a more kind, compassionate, capable, and supportive doula than Shamika Matos. Throughout the months leading up to birth, through a difficult labor and delivery, and postpartum, she has been there for me every step of the way, answering even the smallest questions with care and without judgement.

She advised me when I was unsure whether my water broke, then quickly made a plan to meet me at the hospital, where I was induced. I could not have imagined going through my stressful 30+-hour labor and delivery - in which I had to move into a variety of positions for hours in order to reposition the baby - without her. The whole time she was calm, professional, and confident, restoring a sense of control and peace to my partner and me. She worked seamlessly with the rest of my birthing team at the hospital and stayed after my delivery to make sure we were off to a good start.

She visited at two weeks postpartum to check up on the baby's development and offered much needed support when I had difficulty breastfeeding. Now that I am 2 months postpartum she still checks in on how we're doing. Shamika feels like family; on the whole, I can’t recommend her more highly enough for moms-to-be in the New York area!
