Our Princess " Annelise" and her birth experience with Veronica Hinojosa

We interviewed a number of Doulas for the birth of our first child and are so glad we chose Veronica.

Veronica's prenatal visits were comprehensive, practical, and extremely reassuring for me as a first-time father (as well as for my wife as a first-time mother). Veronica brings a wisdom and confidence to birth education that I was not able to obtain from self-study using books and videos, all of it delivered with an infectious positivity and sense of humor. Veronica made us feel extremely well-prepared for our daughter's upcoming birth.

At the birth itself, Veronica was a calming presence during my wife's long and difficult labor. Empathy, motivation and massages were delivered exactly when needed, along with professional consultation about my wife's different options as the labor progressed. Veronica also interacted well with my wife's OB and the labor and delivery nurses, quickly making herself part of the team.

We are also currently using Veronica as our Post-partum Doula. Again, we are glad we made this choice, and we and our daughter are benefiting from her knowledge, skill and caring. Veronica has taught me a great deal about how to care for a newborn and the various roles a new dad can play in the first month of a child's life. My wife agrees that Veronica has been invaluable to us during this period.

Bottom line -- Veronica is terrific and I strongly recommend her to anyone considering a Doula.

The birth of Our Princess "Pocahontas"

Veronica was with us throughout our whole journey as new parents - from pre-natal visits, birth doula, labor and delivery and postpartum doula... She is now such a big part of our lives and I cannot recommend her highly enough.
We interviewed many doulas and were looking for someone with stellar credentials and recommendations. As first time parents, We were  looking for a birth doula and we were eager to learn everything about labor and delivery as I wanted to have a natural birth. We also, wanted to find a postpartum doula who could not only give the best care to our newborn, but teach us the best ways to do everything. Veronica's resume, experience and references stood out from all of the other doulas we interviewed; but just as important as the credentials on paper, we immediately felt comfortable and at ease with Veronica. It was a huge bonus that we could use her for both our birth doula and our postpartum doula. There is something magical about going through the whole journey from beginning to end with the same person.

Veronica came to our home for private prenatal visits. It's so important to feel comfortable with someone who is going to take part in such an intimate time of life and my husband and I felt completely free with Veronica. She taught us everything from different exercises to train the body for labor to positions and massage techniques. She didn't take over my husband's role but taught him how to be the best support for me.

My birth experience didn't go quite as planned as I needed to be induced and had a long, hard labor with medical interventions that weren't expected. It was very comforting to have Veronica with us during this trying time and luckily, we were able to give birth to a beautiful, healthy baby girl.

It was so comforting to come home to Veronica as we already had such a bond with her from the birth experience. The first few weeks after birth are exhausting and having the support of a baby expert in our home was priceless. Veronica is truly the baby whisperer. From soothing a crying baby to bathing, dressing, swaddling (nobody can swaddle like Veronica), and getting the baby to sleep; Veronica has the magic touch.

If you have the opportunity to hire Veronica as your doula, you will be very happy. The only regret you will have is not being able to have her with you for a longer amount of time.

Letter of Reference Veronica Hinojosa-Stang

To Whom it May Concern,

Where do I begin? Veronica started this journey with us at Cedars in the delivery room as my birth doula. She helped me relax  with  various  massage  techniques, coached  me on breathing and  her constant smile was such a reassurance through the whole birthing process.  

We also had the pleasure of having Veronica stay in our home for a week 24 hours a day helping my husband and I adjust to life with a newborn around the clock.

As  a  first time breast-feeding  mom, I could  not  have asked for  a better  experience. She  helped me figure out different techniques in assisting  my  newborn  boy  with  his  latch. She  gave us massages, helped  out  with  laundry  and  kitchen  duties. But  the  best t hing Veronica did was care for our son with tender hands, gentle touches, and  soothing  words. She  is a  gem  and  is  full  of so much “baby” knowledge. We  learned  baby massage  from  Veronica and various other things to help us care for our baby better.

She would sit with me on those first few frustrating, long nights of breast-feeding and keep me company, always making me feel good when my self-esteem was low. I cried harder than my newborn when she left. If I had it my way, I would have had Veronica stay for much longer. We highly recommend Veronica for doula and baby nurse services. We were so lucky to have her and will forever be grateful!

All the Best,

The Liebermans'

The Baron has been born

To whom it may concern,

Veronica has worked for me for the past 3 weeks for  24 hours a day.

During this time, she has treated me and my son  as her own family.  I am a single father with little experience with a new born so I have relied on Veronica for literally everything.

Not only has she taught me how to feed and care for my son,  
but also run a household taking care of my son, my two dogs and myself, cooking and cleaning and washing,  with many friends and relatives visiting. She has prepared meals for not only me,  but for my friends with children staying with us. 

She has become part of my family.

She has also given me the confidence to take care of my son in every regard and I recommend her to anyone who feels they need help with their newborn

It is with great pleasure that we recommend the services of Veronica Hinojosa-Stang. From the time we signed our contract with her she provided us with information, tips, and suggestions to help us prepare for our little one. In the weeks leading up to our daughter’s arrival, Veronica coached us in birthing techniques and educated us in the stages of Labor. Because of her labor support and valuable information I was confident and calm enough to have a drug free all natural birth. My labor lasted less that 5 hours and I was able to spend most of the time in the comfort of my home and not the hospital.

My husband and I especially appreciated the time Veronica provided us to recover and rest after arriving home. By the end of our time with her, Veronica had established a routine of feedings, naps, baths and, play time leaving us feeling like confident, experienced parents.

I cannot imagine trusting anyone other than Veronica to come into our home and be a part of such special time in our lives, Not only is he the best at what she does, she is warm hearted, sincere and loving. We wouldn’t have done it without her and she is always welcome in our home.
