Labor & Delivery
"I honestly can't thank you enough for all your support before, during & after my labor! My birth experience was so wonderful and really beyond what I could have hoped for. The support you offered me in the most intense moments of my life to date is something I will cherish forever. When I reflect back on the whole experience, I feel so fortunate to have the team I had! You’re gifted in so many ways, your ability to be completely present and how you intuitively knew what I needed and when. You had all the right words of encouragement, support, and willingness to hold the space for me to let whatever was meant to arise to arise.
You’re experience as a massage therapist was apparent first in how you deeply massaged my shins in early labor as a natural technique to induce labor, and in how you skillfully applied deep pressure to my lower back & sacrum during my back labor!! You knew just the right spot to apply pressure, all while offering words of encouragement. You have such a special way about you that is so nurturing and compassionate, and I can't imagine a better doula that I'd want at baby Leah's birth. I honestly feel that I wouldn’t have accessed the inner strength and presence required to have the natural birth I wanted if it weren’t for your support in those challenging moments.
It brings tears to my eyes when I think about how perfect the whole birth experience was and how perfectly Leah transitioned into the world. A highlight for me was when I got to scoop her up and bring her right to my chest. Flooded with joy, love, compassion, peace, pure bliss! And I'm honored that you were so willing to be there for us in a capacity that goes beyond words. "

"It was such a relief to have found nanny care from Portland doula collaborative. We only needed care for one day a week and were having trouble finding an option. We couldn't have asked for better care, It made the transition back to work so much easier knowing my son was with Mallory who was great with him and even sent pictures and updates about how their day was going! Our puppy loved having her there too. I would highly recommend working with them!"
" I am a doula myself and had an extremely hard time feeling relaxed enough to leave my itty bitty alone for the first time. I trusted Gabby because of her soft, gentle nature, and because she is a doula like myself! My son loves her....alot! I know the true role of a postpartum doula is to support me but me being able to leave my son with her knowing he is safe and cared for, for a brief time was all the support I needed that day. Thank you Gabby for doing what you do. If I could afford to have you here with me all the time....I would!"
