Hiring Naima and Michele was one of the best decisions my husband and I made during my pregnancy. I can’t imagine my labor without Michele. She was an unrelenting advocate for me during the birth and kept me calm and focused during a process that was full of unexpected twists and turns. She knew exactly what to do at every juncture and acted as my very own cheerleader, coach, and spokeswoman throughout. She was very supportive of my decision to take the epidural but minimize other interventions, and thanks to her I had a labor that was exactly what I wanted (and now have a beautiful baby boy!). I wouldn’t hesitate to hire Naima and Michele again and would absolutely recommend them to any parent wanting to humanize and demystify the birth process.
