“I am so thankful for Nicole! She helped me tremendously before the birth of my daughter. She’s very easy to talk to, and you can tell she truly cares about the moms she helps.” – Stephanie Pilisko, Austin, TX, mama of McKinley
“I really value my birth processing time with Nicole. Even though I would not describe my birth experience as traumatic, her gentle presence and insightful questions, helped me get to the root of some lingering negativity.
“The process she led me through helped me realize that one negative moment from my last birth was still affecting my attitude toward certain birth professionals. I was relieved to come away freer in myself with a fresh perspective and personal insight. I wholeheartedly recommend her.” — Alison Vaclav, doula and mama of five.
“Nicole’s one-on- one and group coaching was truly a blessing for me as I prepared for and gave birth to our first baby. I engaged with Nicole in a one-on- one setting a few months before my due date; I was very overwhelmed with the idea of birth and motherhood and needed to work through my anxiety.
“We met once or twice a month and she was so generous with her time and encouragement. During our sessions, her empathetic and supportive guidance gently helped me address a number of my fears, and I was able to change my perspective on all the negative “stuff” I had being carrying around.
“Even up to that 42nd week of pregnancy, she was there supporting me as I waddled and waded through all the emotions that come with a first pregnancy. I always felt encouraged and calmer after our sessions.
“After our baby was born, I attended her postpartum group (a six-week series) and found great comfort in the group dynamic that she facilitated. The issues she addressed during those first months of motherhood were to crucial to helping me work through all the worries that we have as new moms. It was such a safe place for us to unload, share, encourage and validate.
“No matter what stage of motherhood you’re at, I highly recommend working with Nicole.” –Erin Tholen, mama of Sloane
