"During my labor, the quiet strength in her presence made me feel empowered, supported, and cared for."
"Gabriella was our doula for the home birth of our daughter. She was an amazing addition to our birth team!!! We were matched with her when she was interning at the South Coast Midwifery. She was excellent in keeping tabs on me during the pregnancy and we talked at length what my needs would most likely be, and even offered pre-natal massage. During my labor, the quiet strength in her presence made me feel empowered, supported, and cared for. She was as hands on as I needed her to be, and very respectful of our wishes, our home, and the rest of the birth team. She spent hours next to me while I labored, holding my hand, massaging me with oils, suggesting different positions, and making sure I drank water. My husband really appreciated that she made it clear that she was a resource for him as well. And if that wasn't enough, she also brought her camera with her to document my daughter's birth. At the time it was the last thing on my mind, but now we can look back and remember more clearly despite the postpartum memory loss. She visited afterwards to check on us too, offering once again if there was anything we needed. I am so immeasurably grateful that the universe provided Gabriella to be a a part of my daughter's birth. She was perfect for us." - Candace
"Hands down the best massage I’ve ever had!"
Gabriella is so kind and gentle. She took the time during my pregnancy to talk and get to know me and my family and I also saw her for prenatal massage a few times. Hands down the best massage I’ve ever had! I felt she was very in tuned with my energy so during labor she knew what I needed without having to ask. During labor and birth I could feel the love she had for my family and her reverence for the birth process. I was honored to have her at my daughter’s birth and would absolutely recommend her! - Miranda, Mother of 2
"She was an anchor for both me and my husband. She lent me so much strength and courage when I thought I couldn't do it anymore."
I am so happy I asked Gabriella to be my doula. From our very first meeting, she listened to my needs and concerns and I felt seen and supported and LOVED by her. I felt like me and and baby were her first priority too! She is very knowledgeable and was quick to answer my questions any time of day to get me the resources I needed throughout my pregnancy. She also helped me and my husband craft the birth plan we both desired. During my labor she held sacred space for me at the hospital, and though my goal was to have a fully natural birth, she did not judge me for getting an epidural or changing my birth plan. She gave constant love and support! She was an anchor for both me and my husband. She lent me so much strength and courage when I thought I couldn't do it anymore! She went above and beyond for us and I am honored to know her! She has so much love and wisdom to share with mamas! I highly recommend Gabriella and her doula services! She is magick! - Marissa

"I truly felt that having her on my birth team contributed to such an amazing experience."
Gabriella was amazing! I had no clue what to expect throughout my pregnancy and delivery and was lucky to get connected with Gabriella through my birthing center. Her presence was calming and I always felt at peace whenever she was around. She was attentive to my needs throughout my labor and made sure I was staying hydrated. She encouraged me and kept me comfortable. I truly felt that having her on my birth team contributed to such an amazing experience. –Amanda, First-time mom
As a first-time dad, I obviously had no clue what to expect. Having a doula, especially one like Gabriella, is invaluable. She was there for my girlfriend & I every step of the way. Gabriella has a champion-level demeanor: Calm, patient, level-headed and rational. I highly recommend Gabriella not only as a doula, but a birthing confidante, bringing a positive and encouraging energy to the birthing experience. –Rick, First-time dad
