Nicola was an incredible guide and integral to the entire birth process of our son. She put everyone at ease and united all of us – my mother, my husband, and I – through each step of labor. I have never felt closer to my family and so close to Nicola! Her constant engagement through soothing massage techniques and words of support gave me so much strength and comfort.
Even my obstetrician and nurses at Prentice Hospital complimented her on her calm and steady focus and appreciated having her help throughout the process. I strongly recommend Nicola, her intuition and talent were essential to creating my wonderful birth experience.

I knew I wanted a doula for my second birth because natural birth the first time around was more difficult than I expected. I really felt like I needed a coach to help me relax and remember to breath. I found Martha by doing a local search on Google, and then found her Facebook page. I thought all of her reviews looked promising so I reached out.
Upon first meeting, I knew she would be the perfect fit. Martha is incredibly calm and easy to be around. I felt like she really listened to what I had to say. Throughout the pregnancy, Martha checked in to see how things were going and to make sure my birthplan was still the same. If I ever had any questions she got back to me right away.
On the day of she met us at the hospital because my labor was going really fast. She did exactly what I was hoping for and more. She massage my back and shoulders with essential oils and really helped me focus on my breathing. I felt way less nervous having her by my side. Everything seemed so much easier having her there. If I ever have a third child, I will definitely use Martha again, and I would highly recommend her to anyone else.
