“You got my stalled labor going! Through your prayers and visualization, my stalled labor began and ended 4 hours later! Your massage through every contraction was crucial for me!" ~Kelly, Sherman Oaks, CA
"Despite how well informed I was about the process of pregnancy and birth, my belief that birth is natural and excitement for my own child, early on, I experienced anxiety and wavering self-confidence. I knew that if I continued through my entire pregnancy in such a negative mental and emotional state, I was headed for a difficult pregnancy and a long, complicated "labor." So, I went on a search to find a Doula. She had to be someone who could look me in my eyes and remind me of what I already knew, that I could do it, as women have before me since the beginning of time. I know for a fact that having Angela, a spiritually grounded, naturally intuitive and supportive Doula assisted me in tapping into the confident and radiant birthing woman that I am, which allowed me to experience a completely natural, powerful and effortless 2 ½ active labor (3-10 cm) birth. Not bad for a first child! I Love you Angela” ~Sayida, Covina, CA
"I am so grateful you were a beautiful part of my daughters birthday, a day I will never forget. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your love and support during my labor. From the moment we met during my pregnancy and throughout my labor, you were there for me both physically and emotionally.
I never imagined such commitment and endurance from anyone. You helped focus my energy on giving breathe to my baby. You held my hand, massaged my back, in Hebrew we say Dayenu! You breathed with me and always gave me encouraging words and prayer. You believed in me and the birthing process giving me the confidence and strength I needed. Lack of sleep didn't keep you from giving me your all. My labor transformed me, and I feel more powerful as a woman because of it. Thank you for helping me realize my dream. You are an incredible and beautiful person, and I felt truly loved and supported by you. Love and gratitude," ~Cara, Redondo Beach, CA
Supporting women through pregnancy and childbirth is my life's passion. People ask me all of the time, I don't know how you do it. The unpredictable hours, up in the middle of night, home two days later, women yelling and out of control... I let them know this has not been my experience. I love this work! I am called to this work by way of my soul. It is not about the hours, time, emotions of a pregnant woman, etc. It is about the love I have for honoring a new life when he or she comes into this world. It is about anchoring a consciousness of unconditional love for a pregnant and laboring woman when she has moments of doubt, confusion, and fear. It is about anchoring a high vibration and prayer vibration for the new souls coming through. These new babies coming through require that we are spiritually grounded and connected to our God-Source. We must be aware of the Intelligence that we are, we must know that Love is the only energy required at childbirth, we must know that fear is not real and has no place in birth. It is about reminding pregnant women that they have the power, strength and grace to birth forth their child in the energy and activity of love. Childbirth takes time, takes work, takes patience, takes deep surrender of a pregnant woman's perceptions and judgment about yourself.
In gratitude and love,
