Esta is an amazing doula, I highly recommend her. Her experience as a labor and delivery nurse in combination with her compassion made my pregnancy and delivery so much easier. Before labor, I felt safe to know that there is a highly skilled person who I can always text or call with any questions or concerns. Especially in late pregnancy, a lot of insecurities can come up, where having such a person is worth so much. During labor, I surely felt that each contraction was much more manageable as she guided me through them one by one. Also decisions I had to make came easier with her around. Finally, I was not far away from having to have an emergency c-section, Esta played a large part in keeping me positive and energized and thus avoiding this outcome. If you choose to have Esta guide you through childbirth you will definitely have a much better experience than without her!

Esta was a wonderful guide and support for my first birth experience. As a first time mom, I was anxious about pregnancy and the childbirth process. I sought out a doula to help guide and support me. I was pleased to find Esta based on a recommendation from my OBGYN, who knew Esta from her many years as a labor and delivery nurse. Childbirth is full of surprises and I was so glad to have someone with Esta's knowledge and experience to guide me through it. She was always available by text, phone and zoom (during the pandemic) and took the time to get to know me and my husband and answer all our questions. She was reliable, always on time, and answered my texts immediately. She was also right there when I had a scare on a weekend and had to go to labor and delivery 3 weeks early.

Esta is such a calming presence. Her emotional support was irreplaceable and when you combine that with her actual knowledge about how things really work at the hospital, I can't imagine a better combination for a doula. Having Esta on my team made me feel more confident in my ability to get through whatever was thrown at me - and she did get me through it! She helped turn what could have been a traumatic experience into one that I felt went well and ultimately felt empowered by. She is also a wonderful amateur Iphone photographer and captured beautiful photos of my baby girl and our new family! I can't thank her enough and I recommend her highly to anyone looking for a doula.

Esta was perfect. Everyone should have a doula like Esta. My only regret is that we didn’t have Esta early on. She is exceptional in so many ways. She is professional, attentive, empathetic, and reassuring. Her services and care deserve the highest praise. Marie and I felt so comfortable and ready when it was time for delivery. As a concerned husband Esta provided a level of emotional support that made the birthing process so much more comfortable for my wife.

Esta empowered me to approach labor with confidence. She taught me a holistic approach to birthing my daughter, which includes engaging my mind, body and spirit. And she was an absolute advocate for me during my labor as well. I recommend Esta enthusiastically!

We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Esta. We were especially excited to work with someone so well known and respected by the doctor and hospital. She provided such valuable support throughout our pregnancy and delivery.

Our family of three is very grateful to Esta for the support and guidance offered before, during and after the arrival of its newest member. We will fondly remember Esta for her very competent, compassionate and non-judgemental help during a stressful yet wonderful time of our lives.

We had the honor to have Esta Desa as our Doula in 2019. Her kind hearted spirit, positive energy, and her extensive experience as a professional nurse guided us throughout the whole delivery process with such ease and encouragement. Esta is a very sweet and genuine person with a heart of gold and will do anything for anybody. I would highly recommend her to anyone who will be giving birth in the future.

Esta was honestly a blessing to have found. She was thorough in her class with all of the information and made it easily understandable. She approached birth from both sides, holistic and medicinal so that we can be well informed to make our own decisions when the time comes. She was easy to listen to and was very patient. She always asked if we had any questions and is always available before and after class should you forget to ask her anything. My husband and I would highly recommend her! 🙂

We want to thank you so much for today's class! I learned a ton and am feeling a lot more prepared, relaxed, and armed with knowledge, and we definitely got some good laughs out of it throughout the day.
Jeremy, Mimi and Miles
Thank you again for such a great class on Saturday. It really helped both my wife and I get more information and a feel for what to expect and to plan ahead for. It has been difficult with the pandemic to get a lot of face to face time with doctors especially since I cannot be there with my wife for her appointments due to restrictions. Thanks again for everything!
Hadley, David and Riley
Thank you so much for yesterday's class! David and I found the information to be extremely helpful and insightful as first time parents. You've definitely eased our minds quite a bit when it comes to labor and delivery. We will most likely be in contact with questions as we get a bit closer to our due date. Thank you again for taking the time yesterday to walk through everything and answer all of our questions.
