"We would like to thank you for the excellent Doula services you provided to us during the birth of our son last month. At every point during our interactions you were professional, courteous and empathetic of the pains that my wife was feeling (and me too as the husband and father!). You helped her to breathe effectively and you kept her conscious of each stage of the process and of its meaning. In particular, I'd like to point out your contributions while we were at the Hospital. Our doctor was off-duty, as well as her backup, so we were left with the on-call doctor and a somewhat ill-tempered nurse. We felt like the team we had been practicing with for the last nine months went off on vacation, leaving us with the backup squad. While they did their jobs, they didn't know my wife and they made little effort to ensure her comfort. You were the point of constancy during that turbulent time, making the overall process smooth and pleasant. Thank you also for taking such wonderful photos!" -Happy Husband, Aventura, FL
"I was so glad that we ended up working with Eyla! I decided last minute that I wanted to do Placenta Encapsulation. I contacted her actually a few days before having my baby and she was so quick to respond and get back to me answering all my questions ( and I had a lot!) The placenta pills I had back the next day and I was super glad that I ended up doing them. Postpartum for me has been a little bit of a roller coaster so that I’m so glad that I was able to do these pills and decided to do the last minute. Also, we did birth for photography as well. I ended up having a C-section, and the birth went longer than normal but Eyla was so patient and kind and stayed until the decision was made that it was not going to be a vaginal birth anymore. She was so sweet and came back the next day so I was able to do the photo shoot in the hospital with my husband and in-laws and new baby. It ended up working out and I was so glad that we ended up working with her. I highly recommend doing both the Placenta Encapsulation as well as the birth photography! They both definitely paid off!! - Sandi V., Aventura, FL
"Eyla captured the moments that took my breath away. The pictures she took my my birth are amazing. I loved that she took pictures from all angles. She has a wonderful gift. She has a beautiful heart inside and out." - Angie R., Davie, FL
"About 2 weeks before I gave birth I was blessed to have someone tell me about Eyla and her birth photography (I hadn't heard of this before). My husband and I had been thinking how we could set up a camera somewhere so we could have some photos of our birth but not have my husband miss the present moments. It's funny now to think how that was a bad idea! Well, we would have nothing even close to what Eyla gave us. The pictures she took are such a gift to us that we treasure now, and can only imagine how special they will be to us down the road.
I have to say, I wasn't sure about having another person around during my delivery but my husband and I decided to meet with her to hear how exactly things would be. As soon as Eyla came over and we began to talk I liked her! Her energy was calm and relaxed and she explained what she does with her photography so nicely that we knew immediately that we wanted her to be at our birth.
The day of the birth Eyla was like a stealth. We hardly knew she was there. I don't know how she got some of the shots she did because I never felt her in my space. Good zoom I guess :)! My midwife and doula spoke Eyla's praised to me later because she was so considerate of all of our spaces.
And to top it all off Eyla is a super, duper talented photographer! The images she gave us are beautiful and capture the essences of the moments of the most incredible experience of our lives.
We can't sing her praises enough. She gave us a service that was more then we ever imagined and we are extremely grateful!" - Coco L., Miami, FL
