“I am so grateful for Supinda! It’s hard to imagine what birth will be like and what I needed, and I am so glad that I took advice from others to have a doula by my side, since I was planning a homebirth. It seemed difficult to find a doula in the area but once I set my intentions on finding someone who lives close by, Supinda showed up in my life and we clicked immediately. I started taking her prenatal yoga classes twice a week which I really enjoyed and felt super good for my body and in preparation for birth.
Supinda offers a holistic doula service that starts well before birth. The preparations were amazing and it’s great to get to know each other better before the birth. I loved the couples yoga session which really felt like a guided date with my husband before birth and was a lot of fun too. In another session Supinda shared knowledge that was very valuable to get a bit more clarity on what to expect of the birth both for me and my husband. The birth plan Supinda drafted was very much complete and on point after one conversation and very convenient that she took care of that in case we had to go into the hospital.
Once my labor started and Supinda arrived she jumped right into the tub to support me during and in between contractions. She was there for me, taking over the pressure from my husband, because she knew exactly how to support me. I didn’t know what I needed, Supinda was very intuitive and also very flexible when I did communicate what I needed and moved with me throughout the whole birth. I felt very supported.
Three days after the birth I booked a massage with Supinda which was also amazing and exactly what my aching body needed after all those hours of hard work birthing our baby girl.
Postpartum, Supinda has continued to show up. I experienced some postpartum depression because of hormone shifts and sleep deprivation and with Supinda’s help coming four mornings a week to take care of our baby, so I could sleep more which had a huge beneficial impact on my mental health. She also helped with light housekeeping tasks like food prep, dishes and watering the plants. She brought me the most amazing soups, adjusted to our vegan diet. And I cannot wait for the closing ceremony that is still part of our doula work together.
Altogether I am so grateful for Supinda’s knowledge, her experience and her intuitive approach during birth. It made the experience so much better and I felt totally supported throughout it all. It’s really great we have a doula who supports us before, during and after, so she really gets to know me and anticipate my needs in such a unique time. I couldn’t have wished for a better doula – thank you so much Supinda!” -Sivan B. and Baby L, Joshua Tree
“Supinda’s Pre/post-natal yoga prepared me physically for labor but also gave me some much needed confidence leading up to it. I loved the calming, welcoming atmosphere that she creates and the perfect amount of spiritual reflection. She modifies things for everyone’s particular needs and is so sweet and supportive. My husband and I also had a private partner yoga session where she used her knowledge as a doula to better prepare my husband on how to support me during labor. She incorporated other aspects into the session that brought us closer together as a couple.” -Alexandra S. and Baby Boy Q
Supinda was everything we wanted in a Doula. She is a great listener, and from the first time we met, I knew that our wishes for our birth would be fully supported. Since we were first-time parents, there was a LOT we didn’t know. Supinda shared so much of her years of knowledge with us, guided us through our options and various possible paths, and helped us make our birth plan with confidence. I really felt like our meetings nourished our hearts and prepared our minds for our birth. At the hospital she helped capture those first beautiful moments in photos, which we’ll treasure forever. Afterwards she even visited a couple of times, brought us soup, typed up our detailed birth story (which we will also cherish forever!), and did a lovely closing ritual with us. She was always professional, supportive, caring, calming and respectful throughout every interaction. She’s also really fun! I’ve attended some of her pre- and post-natal yoga classes and have loved them. I’d recommend Supinda 100%!

Where do I even begin. Supinda is someone I knew I wanted to be my Doula right away the day I first met with her. She is sweet, kind, honest, bold & very positive! And no matter the situation, I always want to know what she has to say when asking for her point of view or advice. She is strong & talented. She’s helped me thru my pregnancy, birth & postpartum. She is someone who is light. Very easy to get along with & easy going. She helped my pregnancy process feel smooth. She taught me to practice balance. I’ve learned to cool it- breathe, relax, meditate. Learning to be patient & working with what’s in front of me. She always kept it real of course, we like that! Whenever I am around her, I definitely always feel the calm. The first day I met her, I noticed that she took the time to really listen & to get to know my partner & I. She understood what support we were looking for even if we were still unsure. Super experienced in my eyes! She provided plenty of info and also laid her techniques & strategies on the line. I loved everything her whole package came with. She is understanding & I never doubted or questioned her because she always had my back! I would definitely choose her again.

Supinda was my doula for the birth of my daughter. I hired her the week of Thanksgiving of 2018. From the time I hired her to until the time of birth, Supinda was very supportive and very knowledgeable. She completed my birth plan for me. She helped my husband help me relax. I was in labor for 38 hours with no pain medication. I couldn’t imagine doing that without her keeping me focused, breathing and in a positive environment. Even though my birthing experience is over I consider her my DIVINE sister. She attended my wedding in May 2019 and I attend her Pre and Postnatal Yoga class when able. Supinda is AWESOME!

Supinda is a very supportive and understanding doula. As a single mother, I needed all the support that I could get. Supinda provided on-going support throughout my pregnancy and during delivery. She prepared me for birth and met with me multiple times, giving me tips for dealing with contractions, pain, labor, and delivery. She is very knowledgeable and was able to recommend optional ways to move my body and support myself. My birth ended up being a c-section delivery and Supinda continued to provide continued emotional support and knowledge throughout. The entire process is so personal and I’m so happy that Supinda was with me. I don’t think that I would’ve had such a positive experience without her.

After a lot of rest and reflection on my birth this past day and a half I could not even begin to express my gratitude for you. I feel like fate brought me to you so late in my pregnancy and you were a beacon of light and support my whole long and difficult labor. Victor and I have not stopped talking about how we could not have done it without you. We are both so amazed at your strength and focus and help to bring Enzo to us! We have so much love and affection for you it blows my mind we have only known you for a few short weeks. Thank you a million times for all that you did for us.

Supinda was my doula for my birth in April. She was a very caring and detailed person who made my whole pregnancy journey as a first time mom easier. And I cannot emphasize enough how crucial her help and support has been for me and my husband during my labor and delivery. I was induced at 38 weeks and I labored for ten hours. With Supinda’s encouragement, I stayed away from pain medication and only used nitrous oxide during my delivery. The delivery was tough, but Supinda’s presence made me feel more calm during the birthing process and confident about my birth choices. Both my husband and I felt how important her presence was for my birth. I would highly recommend Supinda as a doula because she truly cares about her client and is passionate about her supporting role as a doula.

Very sweet, caring person. Thank you so much for your support. I recommend having Supinda be your doula. She’s the best!!!

I had a very good experience with Supinda. She is good doula. She is friendly and she helped me to make good decisions for the birth plan. I felt very comfortable with her. She takes it slow and wanted me to understand everything about delivering baby and what to do during labor. She surprised me when she made my delivery room comfortable with light and music and her smile. I didn’t feel afraid at all. We enjoyed our lunch together with my cousin too. When I heard construction noise, she helped me to breath, that helped me to keep calm and know what to do when I have contractions. When we where talking and enjoying the good weather that was very helpful for me. I love her and I liked her personality. She made sure that I understand and she did everything to make me feel comfortable and not afraid. I want to say thank you so much Supinda.

We cannot begin to express our appreciation for everything you did for us! Your presence added a calm and re-energized not just Aubree, but Brian and Beth as well! And you do not know how reassuring it was when you answered Brian’s call at 12:30 am (or whatever time it was). We are currently working on your recommendation in between feedings and diaper changes 🙂 Truly and from the bottoms of our collective hearts – thank you!
