I was absolutely terrified at the thought of a natural (vaginal) birth. With such little time between finding Gina as my doula and having to give birth, I didn’t think I would be mentally prepared to have my baby. Gina absolutely helped all of those doubts and fears melt away. I was in labor for 57 hours and because of her help with preparation, I was able to go 24 hours through contractions on my own at home, while cleaning and doing laundry lol. She helped put me in positions that took so much of the pain away, as well as know the perfect pressure points when massaging to relieve pain. Because of her, I am confident in growing my family someday.
My husband and I had Gina as our doula in Fall 2022. As a first time mom, it was important to me to have an extra support person versed in childbirth to help guide us through this experience. Gina was absolutely wonderful! Extremely knowledgeable, professional but still super personable and really vibed well with me and my family. She helped me establish techniques that were instrumental in me being able to stick to my natural labor and Unmedicated birth plan. I would definitely recommend her care :)
Gina was amazing! She answered all my questions through out my pregnancy and was so encouraging and helpful through my birth. She checked up on us regularly and always has helpful things even when I didn’t know I needed something. I highly recommend her!!!
Definitely recommend her services!! Gina and I connected through labor of love doula services💕 having her as a doula helped me achieve the natural/ unmedicated birth I've always envisioned. My first birthing experience was very traumatic ending in an unexpected emergency c-section💔 This time I wanted to avoid any unnecessary interventions, so I knew I had to hire a labor assistant, who understood what I wanted to achieve this second time around, especially because I was going for an unmedicated VBAC, which is unfavorable in many hospitals. Gina understood exactly the birth I wanted and was very supportive of it. I hired her at 28 weeks and leading up until it was time for baby to be born, she was very consistent with answering any questions I had and very knowledgeable of the birth I wanted to achieve. When I went into active labor I contacted her right away and she met me at the hospital in less than 20 mins after I arrived, considering we both lived about 45mins from hospital. My labor progressed pretty quickly but because of babies position the pushing phase went on for hourrss 😩 literally lol. I was getting restless and relentless, the pain was becoming unbearable, I thought the birth I envisioned was going to end in another c-section😕 Gina reassured me that I was going to for sure push this baby out and that's exactly what happened! She was not only helpful physically but also emotionally and spiritually. Her words of encouragement help put my mind at ease. I will forever be grateful for her support while giving birth to my first son💙
When the doula I initially hired fell through, I was very fortunate to find Regina as my backup labor support doula. As one can imagine, I was anxious about securing another doula a month and a half before my due date. This was my first baby and I had some fears about pursuing a natural delivery and feeling advocated for. However, I was very much reassured when I got to interview Regina. She seemed like the perfect fit! She was super energetic and involved from day 1, and promptly arranged to meet to discuss our labor plans with my husband and I. Our meetings were very informative. We discussed in length our birth plan, any desired interventions and practiced comfort techniques and positions. She also followed up with me weekly, which made me feel extremely cared for. When I went in to labor, she was just a text/a phone call away, inquiring about how I was coping and advising me when to go to the hospital assuring us that she would be en route when the time came. Even though my labor and delivery didn’t turn out exactly as expected (I eventually had to have a C-section) I am forever grateful that Regina was there for me. She helped me put all of the skills I learned to practice, during my lengthy and exhausting labor. Despite everything I felt very accomplished that I was able to let my body do the what it was made to do for as long as I was able. And the end result was the birth of my beautiful healthy baby girl. Regina continued to check on me well after the delivery and scheduled a postpartum visit where we discussed, healing and coping post partum, breast feeding hacks and even baby wearing. For anyone that is seeking a caring and compassionate labor person, look no further, Regina is the doula for the job. I highly recommended her for your labor support needs and I wouldn’t hesitate to hire her again in the future.
We couldn’t have asked for a more attentive doula than Auntie Gina! As first time parents, Gina kept us grounded during the entire process. We simply cannot sing her praises high enough. She fit perfectly into our plans and felt like a kindred spirit from jump. Gina allowed us a tremendous amount of grace and went to bat for us something special during our delivery. Have is a number of options to help prepare for delivery and sat with us through a few false alarms. If you’re looking for someone that is going to advocate for YOU, your needs and what’s best for your family Auntie Gina is the one! Should we decide have another addition to the family it’s Gina to the rescue!
