OTHER AVAILABLE SERVICE: Hire me as your Doula or Professional Labor Coach during your birth. I will be with you from Active labor until your baby is born. Payment is on the same day. 

Requirement: You should have been able to complete my Birth Class. I would like to be with you in one of your visit with your OB, at least once, to discuss your birth plan. Acceptance fee of P1000. to be settled right after the doctor's visit. It is non-refundable but deductible to the Doula fee after the baby's birth. Some hospitals need permission for a second person/coach to be with the woman during her labor & birth, so you/we would need to acquire that from the hospital.

Important notice: Advice me, any time of the day, as soon as labor has started to allow me ample time to get ready & to meet up with you during Active Phase in the hospital. Since the time of your birth is unpredictable, I will try to proceed immediately but it is also possible that I may be late or not make it in time.

CANDID PHOTO SHOTS: What better way to capture your wonderful birth experience & remember the first time you held & smelled your baby? Lady photographer recommended by several OB's.
Please visit the fabulous touching photos she took:

20140426 A Testimony by Buddy & Noreen Isleta PCC #232, WEEEEEE DID IT!

Hi Chiqui! WEEEEEE DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!! While we were at a party the night before, she was already having contractions, but, didnt think much of it because she had been having similar contractions (so, she thought, hehehe) since her 38th week When i woke up the next day, i saw that she was frowning and thought that she was having a bad dream, only to find out that she just started having contractions. She timed it and saw that the contractions were 1 minute long and 7 minutes apart It was when we saw the bloody show that we were sure that the baby was already coming!!!!!!! 😊 She was already 7cm dilated when we arrived the hospital, and was soon 8cm dilated and fully effaced! She started pushing at around 1pm and a few hours later...out comes our baby! Woooohooooo!!! Noreen did SUUUUUUUUUPER AWESOME!!! She was quiet the whoooole time from start to finish! Using abdominal breathing only, all through out. The nurses and doctors were so impressed with her! Grabe! Ang galing niya talaga! Thank you very much for you have taught us well! We knew what was happening, we knew what to do, and, we knew when to do it. We were prepared! More importantly, i didnt panic! Hehehe. I didnt faint too! Hahaha! What a wonderful experience that was! I was having all sorts of emotions, jumping from one emotion to another, and back again, during the whole time. Hahahahaha!!! Thank you, thank you soooooo much!!!
