Ahhh!!! Where to start?! Sheila was absolutely a god sent! I would like to say myself and Kyle could’ve done this without her but, that’s is a bold face lie. After experiencing a traumatizing labor with baby1 and ending in a c section I was adamant about wanting a natural birth- VBAC. I’m a knowledge HOUND! And from day one, Sheila provided me with such an aboundence of material! She was sooo supportive of me, and she coached - my coach ( Kyle) also! She gave us information, and helped us make the best possible decisions for US! So that we could have the labor/birth we so desired. We were given resources, education, options. Her affirmations to me stuck with me throughout the pregnancy & into delivery. My delivery ended up being excrutiatingly long.. but we did it. on our terms. Sheila was with us the entire time and helped to give Kyle a break, to remind me when I needed what I wanted - as I was slowly losing control. I cannot say enough amazing praises about her! Other then we will never forget the experience we had using Sheila for our doula!!! And this wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t mention how amazing she was with our older son, in educating him, explaining to him & making sure he was as involved as he wanted to be in the delivery. My heart and family are so gracious to have had Sheila, we are forever grateful."

"Sheila was wonderful to work with! She really empowered me to believe in myself and my body to deliver my baby naturally. It was a beautiful experience. Her encouragement during labor was just what I needed to relax and let my body do its thing. We enjoyed the keepsakes she collected for us, and look forward to reviewing the notes she took during labor for years to come. I also appreciated the confidence she instilled in my husband as my birth partner. An all around great doula!"

"Sheila was very beneficial in helping me achieve an unmedicated birth. She gave suggestions on my birth plan, provided daily affirmations, and provided techniques to practice for pain relief during labor (rebozo). My labor and birth went very quickly, but I found Sheila's verbal coaching to be very helpful when it came to pain and anxiety management. She took notes during labor and delivery for me to look back on later and keep (everything is such a blur at the time). She also took photos immediately following delivery. I was very satisfied with Sheila's placenta encapsulation service."
