Hiring Nina as my doula for the birth of my first son was one of the best decisions I made in preparing for the big day. My fiancé and I first met Nina when I was 34 weeks pregnant. The thing that was most obvious about her during that first meeting was how passionate she is about helping families and being a doula. She helped us feel prepared and reassured for what we were about to experience and seemed just as excited as we were. When the time finally arrived on May 4, 2011, as soon as Nina stepped in the door of our room she was immediately soothing, not only to me as a woman in labor but to my family. Having her there for the birth was especially important to us because we were not able to have our baby in a freestanding birth center instead of a hospital like we originally planned. She made the experience of being in a hospital as comfortable as it could be with a concerned touch and absolute attention to our needs in labor. We only met Nina once before that day, but she never felt like a stranger at all and definitely never acted as if we were strangers to her. She did an amazing job working side by side with my fiancé to make the natural birth I wanted so badly possible. When it came to the pushing stage she was not only soothing but energizing. Her personality overflows with the most positive energy and enthusiasm. I love that she could bring that energy to our birth; it’s something that I will always remember dearly and appreciate when I reflect on how my son came into this world. I would recommend her as a doula to anyone.”

Nina did a fantastic job of keeping Kaleigh calm and always knew the right thing to do. As a father-to-be, she made it very simple and enjoyable for me. Words can’t describe how thankful I was to have Nina there – she is very professional and full of laboring knowledge. Thanks Nina!”

Nina helped me out as a postpartum doula. She is so professional, but still makes you feel comfortable. It is obvious that she has a passion for caring for new mommas and helping us care for our babies. I would recommend Nina without hesitation, and I’m sure I’ll probably be calling her again myself!”
