I’m so happy I found out about Orchid Nest and used their services. My and my husband live in Hollywood and after doing a lot of research on labor and having the birth experience I imagined we decided to go to the meet the doula event. There we met Julie and the other doulas but our heart was set on her and we sure were right to trust our gut feeling. All the other ladies were amazing as well! My last trimester was when covid-19 happened so you can imagine the nerves on top of just the general anxiety of being pregnant. Julie was there to ease my concerns every step of the way. Also,The orchid nest at the time offered a free comfort measures class which was very helpful!
Throughout my last trimester I spoke to Julie numerous times, she was always very helpful and gave amazing advice. The simple piece of mind of your concerns being acknowledged is more than anyone can ask for.
The actual birth was more that I could hope for, my goal was to have natural, unmedicated birth without any interventions unless necessary. That is exactly what happened and it’s been a week since my little girl came into this world and I cannot believe it. Julie was instrumental in this, I couldn’t have done this without her and I’m forever grateful for her constant support, encouragement and knowledge. She was by my side for every single contraction. I consider her a friend for life and both me and my husband highly recommend her to anyone we have spoken since. Please don’t hesitate to use Orchid Nest – having a doula should be the standard for every new mama.
Thank you Julie and The Orchid Nest for the wonderful work you do!!
