My Doula experience was wonderful from start to finish. I had four previous pregnancies where there was constant worry, misinformation, misguidance and lack of educating by the hands of my ob/gyn, nurse, and peers.
I met Nyasia through my sister, I met her thinking I would basically learn different calming techniques for labor boy was I wrong. I learned about myself, my baby and my body . The amount of information she gave me gave me confidence and insured me that I was choosing the best birth plan for my baby and I.Talking to Nyasia itself gave me confidence and a sense of comfort and relief. I felt as though I had a Sister that helped me every step of the way. I have never had such a positive pregnancy, or birthing experience.
I would definitely refer Nyasia to whomever i know with child her spirit is Positive, Powerful, Enlightening, and Gentle yet firm.
She is very passionate at what she does and it shows. I think I have a Sista for life!!!
Honestly, even though I knew about placenta encapsulation and have friends who have spoken of the advantages, I did not think much about getting it done prior to my daughter's birth. it just felt like another thing to deal with that I did not have the energy to take care of. However, after evey was born, Nyasia, who was the assistant midwife for my homebirth, offered to take home the placenta and encapsulate it for me. Her explanation of the benefits associated with taking the pills, her low fee and her willingness to tend to all the details (including using vegi-caps to accommodate my vegan diet) within 24 hours made me go ahead with the offer. Without hesitation I would recommend Nyasia's services to other women. I am extremely grateful to Nyasia for the thorough job she did with the encapsulation and would be confident suggesting that other women use her services in the future.
To whom this may concern,
It was at a family gathering that I met my future doula and midwife.Nyasia is very loving, caring,and informative.In general, she made me feel like I was in the best hands to have a home birth. I was taught the true meaning of birth and delivery, how to properly practice my breathing, and overall how to trust in my body to do the most divine act that I had been preparing for. I wouldnt trade nor do anything different in my labor and the delivery of my son. In the future, Nyasia will be who I look to for devotional love in labor and delivery.
I have to admit, i was a little nervous being a first time mother and having a midwife and doula instead of your "standard" OB/GYN. I must say im very pleased with the decision i made to go back to my roots and choose a more comfortable care for my pregnancy. I believe i had and easy pregnancy because of the services given to me. I appreciate the time spent as well as the knowledge given to me. Especially when it came to what to do with my placenta. I was a little shaky on eating my own placenta until my wonderful Midwife Assistant/Doula explained the different processes of how it could be taken and the benefits. SHE WAS RIGHT!!! After giving birth i was drained for 3 days straight. I quickly popped ONLY two placenta pills and within an hour i felt like i wanted to do back flips. If it weren't for my doula and her placenta pill knowledge she gave me, i'd be some where crying and eating ice cream and donuts. I really appreciate the time spent to ensure my satisfaction. The fact that personal bonds were made and it wasn't all about the money or trying to get to the next client made me feel warm and secure with my pregnancy. If i have another pregnancy i will definitely take this route again!!!!!!!
I am so glad I chose Nyasia as my birth doula for the birth of my son, Zokyas! Nyasia is extremely knowledgeable, professional, patient, and kind; and she was a tremendous help to my children and I before, during, and after the birth. When we were considering a homebirth, I knew that I wanted someone who would help me to understand what was going on and to feel empowered to make good decisions about the home birthing process but who would not push a particular type of birth or philosophy; Nyasia’s style was an excellent fit for what I wanted in my birth experience.
