"We were amazed by your loving and supportive presence during the labor and birth of our son. It is such a special gift to have such positive memories of our birth experience, and we will be forever grateful for your contribution to this most special event. – Michelle"
What's The Fuss About Vaccines? (*I understand this is a hot topic and controversial but many parents have been writing to me privately asking for more information. Therefore I put together a class to help those parents who would like more information without social stigma and pressure of asking questions on social media. I keep my opinions out of the topic and present the information.)
Are you confused about all the new vaccines and the schedules for your newborn and toddler?
What do you know about vaccines?
What has your Pediatrician discussed with you about vaccines?
What are your rights as parents?
This two-hour session will teach you all the basic information on evidence and how and what goes into the vaccines so you can make the right choices for you and your new family.
*Please note that you will not be told what to think or what choices to make.
Please call 917-617-7905 or email Lauren@nycdoulaservice.com to set up your session today
Hi, Lauren! It's Nicole Vasquez. Just wanted to let u know that I gave birth to my beautiful boy this morning at 6:34am at St. Luke's birthing center. It was all natural (not one drug!) and absolutely looooong! (I started early labor Sunday) But I pushed through and we are all fine and healthy! Thanks so much for all the info you gave us. I used many of your techniques and you were sooo right when u said the squatting was every Mama's least fave move bc god knows I DID NOT want to do it, but it worked as did breathing through the lip and the one leg up birth move! Here are some pics. Much love to you! xx
"Thanks so much! Your class was amazing! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!xx"
