I contacted Nicole because I wanted a birth with little to no medical interventions and I was very interested in having my baby at home. I am a big believer that there is a time and place for medicine, however, it seems that it is excessively used when it comes to pregnancy and birth. God designed women’s bodies to deliver babies and I wanted to know what that felt like without any medicine.
After my husband and I met Nicole for the first time, we immediately knew we wanted her to delivery our baby. Nicole has such a calming and peaceful presence that made me feel comfortable and supported. Not only is she caring and kind, but she is extremely knowledgeable as well. Nicole focuses on each client and sees them as an individual rather than just a patient. Her ability to connect with her clients is something truly special. My husband and I had no idea what to expect since this was our first baby but Nicole and her team gave us a great sense of calm and confidence.
When I was 40 weeks pregnant, my labor began one day in the late morning and at 6:48 in the evening our son, Elijah, was born. I used a birthing pool to manage the pain which provided so much relief for me! During labor, Nicole prayed over me and her assistants rubbed my back and encouraged me. I felt so loved and supported by my husband and my midwifery team. It is a day that I will never forget.
I am so blessed to have been able to have my baby in the comfort of my own home. I thank Nicole for helping me to find the confidence to not only deliver my baby naturally but also feel empowered by it. I completely trust Nicole and I hope that we can work with her again in the future!
