Testimonial for Shamika Matos

I had the pleasure of working with Shamika this past year as I prepared to give birth to my first child. I wanted to ensure that as a Black woman and a first time mother, I was armed with all the information and resources necessary to make informed decisions and have the safest possible outcome for both me and my baby. Shamika was not only someone who ensured I was well informed about all of my available options, but went out of her way to make me feel like a friend vs. just another client. I'm a realist and asked not to have information sugar coated and Shamika gave it to me straight, though still added in warmth and validated my feelings. Her mantra of "this is temporary" is something I used to deliver my son and something I still use during my current day to day when things might feel too overwhelming. She has a wide network of doulas and will crowd source information from her network to ensure she's sharing the most up to date information with you and will check in regarding even the small details a pregnant person might overlook like ensuring your hospital bag is well stocked with everything you need to feel comfortable. She truly cares about the people she works with and is happy to move along at your pace so you can have the birth experience you want. Overall, I had a great experience working with Shamika!
