"Nicole was a phenomenal doula who exceeded all of my expectations! She played an instrumental role in helping me achieve an incredibly positive birth experience at Lifecycle WomanCare. Throughout our discussions during my pregnancy, she gave me the confidence to actually look forward to birth and overcome some of the fears I had as a first time mom. She often did so by sharing her wealth of knowledge in evidence based research around pregnancy and birth." -Monica K.


2021 LOVE Award Winner: Best Doula

Family Focus Media has been building community with Main Line Parent and Philadelphia Family since 2010 and our annual LOVE Awards celebrate the BEST local resources for families, thanks to thousands of nominations like this one:

"Having a baby in 2020 came with a whole set of worries and concerns we did not expect. We knew we wanted to have doula at our hospital birth and when we met Nicole we knew she was the right fit for our family. As our due date approached, Nicole worked with us to prepare for birth and what to expect for during a hospital stay when Covid cases were very high. She also was able to attend the birth of our son and help us every step of the way. Having Nicole as our doula allowed me to have a beautiful birth experience during uncertain times and I am so thankful to her!" -Kimberly D.

 

"Nicole was our doula for the birth of our first baby in late October 2020. Her knowledge and guidance during pregnancy and as we prepared for labor and birth were exactly what we needed. She was incredibly compassionate and intuitive about our needs and desires, both as the birthing person and the birth partner. She takes an evidence-based approach to pregnancy and birth and is full of interesting facts and stories about all the possible ways they might unfold for different people. When I was several days past my due date, Nicole came over to our house to talk about natural ways to jump-start labor so I wouldn't end up needing to have a hospital induction and could deliver at The Birth Center as planned. She helped me through some Spinning Babies moves and did acupressure for labor induction on me. My water broke and labor started 4 hours after she left! During labor and delivery she was such a calm, comforting presence. She was incredible at reading my body language as to what sort of support and comfort measures I needed throughout the process. After our baby was born, Nicole stayed with us for a few hours making sure we had everything we needed and were comfortable. A few weeks later, she met with us virtually (she offered to meet in person or virtual - our choice) to chat about how the birth had gone, see how parenthood was going, and how we were all doing in general. Throughout the whole process, Nicole was super responsive and available to answer all our questions and address our concerns. We're so happy we had her as part of our birth team!" -Hanna V.
