Testimonials

 
 
 

All I can say is, Nubia completely changed my birthing experience for the better.  She was a strong advocate for me in the delivery room and I truly believe if she had not been there, I would have ended up with a cesarean or at least multiple interventions.   My water broke very early, however, I was not having contractions.  The MD wanted to start me on Pitocin which I did not want since it would make my contractions stronger and force me into an epidural earlier.  Nubia helped me move around to start bringing in the contractions, which even surprised the MD and my husband.  Once the contractions started, she gave me massages and compresses which were very soothing...
