‘I have had experience with Nina being my doula twice. Both experiences were enhanced immensely through Nina being there. I had four prior birth experiences and none can compare to my experience with Nina by my side.
Nina is a calm and composed person which led to a relaxed atmosphere during my births. She even managed to make me giggle on the odd occasion during the labour process.
It was important to me to have someone I felt was compassionate and genuinely cared.
Her self- assurance breeds confidence in those around her. This was so crucial for me during labour as it made me feel like I had the strength to get through the pain.
Nina knows when to get involved and also when to take a step back. I definitely did not need someone with me who was too strong and overbearing.
Nina knew how to engage with the medical staff in a professional and helpful way. An example of this was when she organised a birthing ball to be brought into my room. I needed this at the time when I had no strength or foresight to think of it.
Having Nina as a doula, was a fantastic experience. I would highly recommend her to other pregnant women’. D.P, UCLH 2013
