"I decided to work with a birth doula to have a natural birth experience with my second child. I immediately knew Ariana was the right doula for me because of her passion, knowledge and experience with the birthing process. Ariana was extremely supportive and helpful. I decided at 36 weeks that I wanted a home birth, she helped me find a fantastic midwife and I ended up having a truly exceptional birth experience. Ariana also facilitated a beautiful ceremony called a blessing way to celebrate me and my unborn daughter with a few close family and friends. The blessing way was one of the most precious experiences during my pregnancy. Ariana went grocery shopping stocked my home with nourishing, healthy foods that she prepared for me and my partner after the birth. She also helped me with placenta encapsulation. Ariana prepared amazing meals that were tailored to my preferences and supported my milk supply and healing from the birth. She also helped my son adjust to having a baby sister. Words cannot fully express the deep gratitude I have for Ariana's compassion, nurturing, and support. We even gave our daughter the middle name Ariana as a way to honor the beautiful impact she has had on our lives." Kelly O. (San Jose)

She showed us tips and tricks regarding mindfulness to cope with the stress, played with our baby daughter, advised us on healthy eating and cooking for breastfeeding and relaxation techniques and was there to spend time with our daughter and be kind and empathic to us. She is great and I recommend her very much! " -Daniella B. (San Jose)
