To Book a Consultation
“Rarely does a day go by that we do not thank our lucky stars that we had Nicole Libschik as our doula. My husband and I were prepared for a natural childbirth, but we felt we needed that extra bit of support and knowledge that a doula has. Nicole was warm and energetic during our prenatal meetings, taking time to listen to our questions, noting our concerns and preferences, and understanding our desires for this birth. When my labor began, she smoothed the transition from home to hospital. I was a stalwart and resolute laborer, often laughing at and not complying with the requests of the hospital staff. Nicole was a calm but determined bouncer between me and the staff, making sure they allowed me to labor my way and coaxing me to comply with the more gentle demands. She did not leave my side as I labored in the waiting room of the maternity ward, as the staff did not believe I was far enough advanced in labor to be admitted. She helped my husband keep me calm and stay calm himself in the very unusual situation. She was ever the cheerleader as I pushed my son into this world. In the end, I had the birth that I wanted - absolutely drug free. Nicole is a wonderful doula and a great person. I am doubtless that she will bring comfort to many more women.”
"To have Nicole Libschik as my doula was absolutely priceless. I was fortunate enough to have crossed paths with Nicole during my first pregnancy. Not only is she super knowledgeable in her craft, but she is a soothing massage therapist that helped work wonders through my contractions. My intention was to have a drug free birth. Thanks to Nicole for guiding myself and my husband through labor and delivery, my goal was achieved. I could not have done it without her guidance, patience, support, strength, and calming effect. I could not recommend her enough!"
