Testimonial for Shamika Matos

We felt an instant connection with Shamika on our first zoom call. I knew I needed someone who could advocate for me and ask the tough questions that may be hard for me to think of in that overwhelming process. I had really hoped for a VBAC. Shamika was there the whole way sharing helpful resources regarding food and nutrition, exercises, and also ways in which I could manage pain during the labor process. She also showed my husband ways he can be a great support person. My birth plan became a planned c-section two days prior to delivery. Shamika was there as an an emotional support to help me process my feelings and on the day of she joined us in the OR. She helped me create a birth plan for a natural birth and for c section.She took over 100 photos and allowed us to be in the moment, ensured that I shared skin to skin and had him latch. Shamika communicated with us through out the entire post partum process and checked in regularly. We had Shamika come over to offer post partum support. During that time she helped me figure out where I needed help. She encouraged me to make a list and she kept track of the list throughout the day. Even when I was frazzled she figured out ways to make herself so helpful. Shamika read through my pump instructions for my Spectra and Hands free Momcozy pumps, helped instruct me on set up, cleaned and sanitized pump parts, stored parts. She helped care for baby while I folded laundry and organized all of the clothes while I nursed. She organized my toddler’s toys, swept the floors and did dishes. She also bonded with my active 3-year old and made quite the impression on him. Shamika was organized and helped manage our expectations at every stage of this process from pregnancy to post partum. My baby is now 3 months old and we still keep in touch. Simply put we were blessed to have someone like Shamika come into our lives, care for us and support us in more ways than we can count.
