We had a great experience with having Reina as our doula. She was frequently checking on me and offering me tips and tools to help me have a stress free labor and delivery at home. She was here right when we needed her, even though it felt like maybe it was too early to call her. We were so at ease with her presence our labor. Even if we weren't sure what we needed, she would help us find out what it was! Thank you for everything Reina. We are lucky we found you so late in our pregnancy !~ Jaime 11/24/19
I met Reina 1 week before my baby came. She was highly recommended by another doula and honestly we hit the jackpot. Having not had a great experience with our first my husband was very hesitant on hiring one for our second. He didn't meet her until the day our baby came because we had scheduled a home meeting which never happened because baby girl decided she wanted to come before. I can honestly say we have made a forever friend and my husband as a medical doctor can't believe what an amazing experience she brought to our birth. Reina has a way of presenting things in a way that people are not intimidated by her. All the medical staff at the hospital we birthed in raved about how professional she was. She never told me what to do but simply suggested and I really appreciated that. She knows what she's doing and she has the knowledge to make you feel safe along w the quiet , calm yet nurturing bad -ass- mama aspect that you want from a doula during your birthing experience
I honestly can't praise her enough. You can't go wrong with this incredible woman. And if you're lucky enough you might even be able to call her a friend.
THANK YOU REINA. We LOVE YOU!~ Michelle 11/24/19
What an amazing person/business! I had the privilege of experiencing Reina at my partner and I's first birth and was blown away by the compatibility she created between herself and my new family. She has an excellent knowledge regarding all things birthing to go along with her incredibly awesome bedside manner. She encapsulated my partner's placenta and we couldn't have been happier. She answered all of our questions regarding the encapsulation to help us better understand the process and made us feel more than comfortable with what she would be doing.
If you are in the LB/South Bay area and are interested in learning more about placenta encapsulation or lactating THIS is the person you want to request!! My partner and I have already decided we would be using her services again for our next birth. ~ Sascha 04/20/2019
Reina was my doula for both of my pregnancies. I hired her due to my FEAR of labor for my first baby, she was very supportive and informative about all my questions, she guided my husband to help me as well. I would say she was there for us for the whole process before, during, and after (breastfeeding, colickybaby, etc). Thanks to her, I was able to enjoy the most wonderful experience of becoming a mom. Automatically for my second pregnancy, I booked right away. She would be right by her phone at any time for any question, and of course, she was with me the entire time at the hospital for which I will be grateful forever. I should add that she is very respectful with all the medical staff and she makes sure we understood everything going on at the hospital. ~Yosabeth 03/17/2019
Reina was a wonderful doula, she was supportive, knowledgeable, patient, professional and kind. She was my doula for my first pregnancy with my son, Mason and she was my doula for my second pregnancy with twins, Mila and Miles.
She was responsive, even in the middle of the night, and she was our advocate in the hospital and helped explain the procedures to us in ways that were easy to understand during both stressful times. She was an excellent support for us and extremely valuable.
At first, we did not consider a doula, but looking back, I am so glad that we decided that Reina would be part of our birth plan for both pregnancies. I highly recommend Reina because she's very knowledgeable in what she does and is a great support to have during the most important thing a women has to go through.~ Yadi 02/11/2019
Reina is amazing. My wife is a nurse and a first time mom. When she got pregnant it was a whole new world for both of us. She originally had an alternate Doula but when she had to terminate our contract Reina stepped in and stepped up! Without batting an eye. She is kind, loving, generous of her knowledge and time and SO supportive of my wife first and foremost but me as well. Should you choose to hire a Doula she is the best...you, your family and you precious little one will be forever better with Reina ~ David 11/26/19
