"Ariana was an essential team-member of our birth team and we can't imagine our pregnancy or labor without her. She brought a positive energy and always said the right thing to encourage me! During pregnancy, she helped calm anxieties and taught me lots of excellent stretches and exercises that I did everyday. She helped mentally prepare me and my husband for labor and gave us peace of mind that an experienced doula would be there to guide us. She is very knowledgable and a calming presence. She goes above and beyond, for example offering to look up acupuncture services near our home.
My labor was 35 hours, without an epidural or any pain medication. This journey would not have been possible without my amazing team of Ariana and my husband. They took turns being with me, massaging my back, holding my hand, giving me water, encouraging me, and counseling me when the medical staff presented us with options for encouraging labor to progress. Ariana was with us the entire time, making our hospital room comfortable and cozy.
We loved working with Ariana and 100% recommend her to anyone looking for a birth doula. She has such a special place in our heart and if we have another child, we'll want Ariana there with us."
"Birth is not only about making babies. It’s about making mothers; strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and believe in their inner strength."
