You have an incredibly relaxing energy that radiates confidence and ease! We were blessed to have you as our doula. Thank you so much! You're awesome!
-Kaleigh Z. (Mother of Zaire) January 2017
Nubia is a rare combination of wisdom, soul, kindness and humor. Her techniques for physical support were above and beyond excellent, and her emotional support was immeasurable. Nubia was instrumental in bringing about the childbirth my husband and I hoped for-- one free of medical intervention, and we got it! She is a noble person, consummate professional and more importantly, a kindred soul.
-Joy I. (Mother of Isaiah) March 2014
Last night was so amazing! It wouldn't have been the same without you. I felt very supported and strong. Thank you.
I went into labor with my son on August 3rd, early in the morning. When I got up it was 9am and I called Nubia and she jumped right into action. Although at first I was extremely overwhelmed, as soon as she got in the car I felt at ease. Nubia guided me through my contractions with breathing techniques, imagery, and swaying until I felt empowered by the pain and knew it just meant it was almost time to hold my baby in my arms. Nubia stayed with me during my whole labor (which I couldn't believe, and couldn't thank her enough for, seeing how I was in labor for over 24 hours). Nubia stayed until after I breastfed for the first time. With my daughter, who's now 3, I had a c-section; I feel that Nubia's encouragement and wonderful job as a doula made it possible for me to have a natural VBAC with my son.

Like finding a doctor, choosing labor support can be extremely challenging. You want expertise and experience, yet you also want someone with a deep sense of calm. Unlike the search for doctors, your labor support choices are not limited by insurance making the selection process all the more difficult.
So to all my expectant mothers out there, consider this letter as an offering of peace and ease from me to you. With the long list of preparations that you are undoubtedly making, this is my humble attempt to lighten your load and support you through this process. Consider it a gift from me to you. This gift has a name: Nubia.
My husband and I were having our second child. We already had the Doula conversation and decided we wanted to start looking for Doula support for the birth of our second child. I met Nubia at Wave Hill Park in Riverdale with my Daughter Ella. We instantly hit it off and Ella adored her. She handed me her card and told me she was a Doula herself. It was serendipitous. Nubia had such a stillness and peace about her I knew instantly I had met our Doula. I returned home very excited to tell my husband about Nubia. Nubia came to our home to meet with us and discuss our birth plan. I could instantly feel her deep sense of service and her commitment to supporting my husband and I through our experience.
I scheduled an appointment for Nubia to meet my doctor. My doctor was thoroughly impressed by her. Nubia was always available to discuss my birth plan, answer questions and just calm my nerves. The last of which was no small task given the fact that our baby was born a full two weeks late.
Throughout my pregnancy I had a list things to be thankful for. Nubia is a crucial part of that list. I am overflowing with gratitude.
I truly wish everyone a wonderful birth experience. Inviting Nubia to support you is a brilliant step in that direction.
