Here's what my clients are saying!
Luana, Gustavo & Baby Alyssa
Since I discovered I was pregnant I knew I wanted to have a great Doula to help me during pregnancy, labour and postpartum. I knew Nidhi was my Special Doula since our first email. The way our energies connected was awesome. She helped my husband and I throughout the pregnancy with some tips, advice and techniques to prepare for labour and motherhood. I had a very long and painful labour in the middle of the pandemic and Nidhi was the breeze of fresh air as well as the strongest support that we could have asked for during very difficult times. She cared for me, my husband and my baby in an unique way, but most of all she understood me when I was going through the most painful moments in labour and during my traumatic postpartum. Nidhi will always be in our hearts and we are forever grateful for her love and support. Love you my dear Doula
Andria, Greg & Baby Wilemina
Having Nidhi be part of this journey with us was the best decision! She is knowledgeable, intuitive, and a wonderful support person. During pregnancy, she shared extremely useful information and helped us prepare physically, mentally, and emotionally for childbirth; we really appreciated her holistic approach. We particularly benefitted from the rebozo exercises she taught us and from the meditation she led for us in our home. During labour, she had beautiful energy and knew exactly what we needed in every single moment, which I feel was especially important for an unmedicated birth. In a moment of fear, she gave me the words of encouragement I needed to give me the strength to continue with a natural labour, and I am so thankful she did. She played a vital role in welcoming our daughter and worked really well with my partner and midwife as a team. Nidhi clearly cares about what she does and the people she supports - I can’t imagine having done this without her, and she will be one of the first people we call if we are fortunate to expect another child!
Lila, Leandoro & Baby Luke
I gave birth to my son Luke in the middle of coronavirus pandemic and I couldn’t have Nidhi with me physically during my delivery, which doesn’t mean that she was absent at this very important moment. I felt safe and secure communicating with her through phone. She was always asking how I was and she guided me and my husband through the steps of the delivery and explaining everything to us. As she couldn’t be with me in my labour, she was even more present and supporting in my postpartum period. She brought groceries and food to the hospital when we had nothing to eat. I really don’t know what could have happened with me emotionally if she wasn’t there for me. Being apart of family in moments like these are hard, but Nidhi was always family, since the day I met her. She took care of me and I could not be more grateful to her.
Danielle & Baby Shale
There is so much uncertainty when preparing to become a first time mom. I knew from the get go that I wanted a doula for post partum support because having anxiety issues in the past put me at a higher risk for post partum anxiety. I set up many interviews with doulas, and a long list of needs. Nidhi was the first doula I met. I instantly felt a calming connection to her and cancelled all my other meetings! I knew she was the one I would want to guide me through those first few weeks of motherhood. Nidhi has incredible intuition about what both mom and baby needs. She is not only a warm individual that offers hands on support but she is also intellectually engaging. She has deep knowledge and expertise about women’s health, birthing, human anatomy, and child development. Before my baby was born and even months after, Nidhi continually shared links, resources, academic findings, and tips directly with me about babies and motherhood. Nidhi provides that feeling of sisterhood and wisdom that every mom needs. Without a doubt Nidhi helped me stay calm, rested, and knowledgeable. I feel so lucky to have had her as part of my journey to motherhood - and I know you will too!
Nathalie, Justin & Baby Kai
When we met Nidhi I instantly knew she was the Doula for us. The support I received during my pregnancy, labour and postpartum was spectacular. It was the support from Nidhi during my labour that holds a special place in our hearts. She held my hand through very important times throughout my labour and was there for me when my partner couldn’t be. She was everything and more during the most important time of our lives. She was in the OR with us and she guided my partner and I through it all. That was a very special moment for us and to have Nidhi there with us only made it more special. The reassurance she gave me filled me with the confidence I needed to come out of my caesarean with the mindset to heal and get well for our child. To this day I strongly feel that Nidhi’s knowledge and expertise in her field made my pregnancy and delivery the best experiences of my life. I am counting on Nidhi to be my Doula as we hope to grow our family. I feel like I’ve made a friend for life and will cherish Nidhi for years to come !
Valentina & Baby Arianna
Nidhi brings us a lot of positive emotions every time she comes in.
She is a true “goddess” in the world of doula practice: a real-world professional, with passion and eternal love for what she does. I could see her bond with my baby girl the very first time they met, and I continue watching their beautiful relationship, which melts my heart. Arianna was just over one month old, and was still very sensitive to any changes, and me being away even for just a few hours wasn’t easy for either of us. However, when Nidhi came, I was so relieved to see my baby being calm, relaxed and happy. Nidhi could create a perfect atmosphere, with calming music, soothing talk and looots of cuddles, warmth and love, to help Arianna feel safe and calm when I was away. It absolutely helped me get over my anxiety of leaving my newborn for the first times. I’m proud and extremely happy to say, that Nidhi helped me regain balance in my life, reconnect with myself, and ease the transition to life with the baby for our young family. With her extensive training as doula and previous medical background, Nidhi can always offer a helpful advice, or simply an explanation of the developmental, as well as upcoming, changes in my baby’s life. And, for the first-time-mom, it’s the greatest support knowing there is someone who completely understands what you are going through physically, as well as mentally, IN ADDITION to constantly worrying about being a good mom for your newborn baby. My family was truly blessed to have such an incredible person, honest and sincere friend, and a reliable, knowledgeable professional enter our lives. Im sincerely looking forward to exploring the world of parenting, watching Arianna’s first steps and achievements of her life, with Nidhi as a part of our family
Jessica & Jeremy & Baby Flora
As first-time parents, my husband and I had no idea what to expect from labour and delivery but immediately following our first meeting with Nidhi, we had a sense of confidence and knew, without doubt, we wanted her support. Nidhi had a very loving, understanding and nonjudgmental way of equipping us with the knowledge we needed to make informed decisions about our birth plan and supported us in those decisions, throughout pregnancy, labour and delivery. Nidhi offered unwavering support to both me and my husband throughout labour and it was her support, guidance and calming presence that allowed us to have the birth we had dreamed of. We couldn’t have done it without her! -
Mercedes & Baby Mini
I was fortunate enough to have had postpartum support from Nidhi since my daughter was two days old. I ended up having an unplanned, emergency cesearean section and was floored by the pain I was in post-surgery. The prospect of recovering from surgery, taking care of a newborn and prioritizing my mental health was daunting to say the least. My husband gave me the greatest gift possible in postpartum support from Nidhi. She walked into our home the first night back from the hospital, and I was instantly enveloped in a sense of warmth and calm - I felt taken care of. Nidhi spent countless hours holding my little girl so that my husband and I would be able to get a little sleep. The tenderness and love she showed to my baby girl, myself and my husband went above and beyond what I thought Doula care could ever be. I've never felt more confident entrusting the care of my baby girl with someone. Postpartum support was the single most important piece in my physical and mental recovery as a first time Mom. Despite having an extremely supportive husband, the relationship I developed with Nidhi was something that my husband couldn't provide. She was like a nurse, teacher, sounding board, and sister all in one, and my family and I could not have done it without her. Or maybe we could have, but I'm not sure what sort of mental state my husband and I would be in. Thank you Nidhi for everything, and for all the love, cuddles and countless hours in the nursery you spent with our Mini. We love you
Jennilee & Baby Joachim
Nidhi is in the right profession and I would highly recommend her services to anyone searching for a doula. I met Nidhi when searching for a postpartum doula and while she encouraged me to speak to other doulas to find a good fit, I felt at ease and incredibly comfortable with her and knew that she was the right doula for me. She is intelligent, educated, kind, organized and she possesses an emotional intelligence that makes her great in her career. As much as she offered me physical support during my recovery she offered me emotional and mental support that I didn't even know I needed. Her ability to seamlessly integrate into our family and our home was incredible. While her time with us was short, she was essential to my recovery.
Brandy & Baby Lucy
Being a first-time mom, I had no idea what to expect once my baby arrived. I was a bit skeptical of accepting help from someone outside of our family, however, my husband insisted and I am so grateful he did! We received a few referrals for potential postpartum support doulas, but when I met with Nidhi in person I knew she was the perfect fit for our family.
Nidhi has such a calm and inviting way about her. She is incredibly nurturing and caring and I felt total comfort having her care for my baby while I got much-needed sleep! In addition, she was always there to offer valuable advice and words of encouragement, and went out of her way to make herself available by phone or text during the day when I had questions.
Any family would be lucky to have Nidhi's post-partum support. Nidhi - thank you for being so great with our little one and helping me get the sleep I desperately needed. You are one of a kind!
Nicole & Baby Aurora
I was going through an emotionally devastating time while I was pregnant and explained my situation to Nidhi. I was concerned about some of these things that may have surfaced during labour and she was very understanding and supportive. I had specifically requested no medications or Epidural as my first born was a medicated birth and was extremely unpleasant. Nidhi arrived at The Birth Centre before I did and prepared the room to my specifications. It was dimly lit, with calming music. We were even able to smudge the room! If it weren’t for Nidhi’s application of pressure to my lower back during contractions I wouldn’t have been able to do it without meds!
The ability to meet my daughter with a clear mind and feel we were embarking on our new life together in a refreshed way, rather than us both being medicated was very empowering and I believe better for my baby’s health. My daughter was the calmest newborn I have ever encountered.
Bonnie, Brendan & Baby Ruby
We hired Nidhi as our doula for our first baby. We had such an amazing experience! She was super supportive, positive and just made us feel really calm and prepared. Nidhi has so much knowledge to share from both a holistic point of view as well as medical. She was such a huge support for my husband and Iduring the labor. It was amazing to have someone there to guide us and keep us going, really making me feel like I could get through it. It was also super helpful and reassuring to have her to check in after we were home with our daughter. Nidhi was there to answer all our questions and ease our concerns in those first weeks. She still checks in with us and send us articles and podcasts with great information for us. I would totally recommend hiring Nidhi, it’s a great relationship you get to build, you really get the sense she is in it with you.
Carly & Baby Liv
Nidhi contributed to an incredibly positive labour and delivery process. From keeping me, my partner and my mom comfortable, hydrated, informed and well-taken care throughout the entire process. Nidhi was kind, gentle and approachable from our very first meeting and continues to be through my postpartum recovery. I hope that Nidhi be present at all of my future labour and deliveries. My “team” wouldn’t be complete without her.
Natalie & Baby Lily
I had such a lovely experience with Nidhi. She helped me with postpartum, kept the house clean and tidy, ensured I was fed and helped with my daughter, so I could get well-needed naps and rest. Nidhi is so supportive, sweet and caring. She is so intuitive and is so nurturing. She helped me to understand my own journey through motherhood and remained extremely positive.
Dawn, Wai & Baby Cody
We were so blessed to have Nidhi as our doula. Our paths crossed in an unexpected way—our original doula was ill with the flu and Nidhi thankfully stepped in. While we met briefly in case such an instance was to happen, my partner and I were both pleasantly surprised how easily we took to Nidhi during “go time.” Nidhi is a bright light and immediately, she made us feel comfortable, cared for, and supported.
We had a longer labour (over days) and Nidhi was there with us the whole step of the way, first by phone and then at the hospital once we went in. She was easy to talk to about all things in life when we were passing the time and she assisted us non-judgementally in making some important decisions moving forward in various parts of the delivery. She was so encouraging during the active phase of our labor experience. Wai felt supported and relieved that he had guidance as a first-time dad. Nidhi actually held me and encouraged me for however long I was pushing. We both agree that we couldn’t have done it without her. My mom was also in attendance and was so happy with her expertise and support. She was immediately like one of the family.
If we are blessed to have a number 2, we hope Nidhi will be there with us and our family.
