Hello! My name is Nicole. I’m a Birth Doula and I also offer overnight postpartum and newborn care to new and expectant families throughout South Jersey, Philly, and surrounding areas. I believe it is a gift to be able to make a difference in the way a family feels supported and cared for throughout their journey. It’s the reason I became a Doula. I personally know what it feels like to be supported vs not. I feel extremely fortunate and honored to have been trusted and invited into many birth spaces over the years. It is a mission that I continue to take very seriously. I specialize in helping people have redemptive births after previous birth trauma, VBAC, advocacy, and physiologic birth. I aim to help people find their voice and birth from a place of power, strength and confidence!
