Healing and Therapeutic Touch

Healing and Therapeutic Touch

I feel so very fortunate to have received the gift of Myla Flores by my side at Mt. Sinai Hospital at the birth of our first child. Myla was our back-up doula, and thank goodness our daughter came early, otherwise we all would have missed out. From the moment she arrived, Myla brought a calm and peaceful energy which encouraged me to stay centered and empowered in the process of giving birth. Her healing and therapeutic touch helped ease my pain throughout the process, and she was always very reassuring to both my husband and me as we faced a variety of obstacles along the way. She is a masterful optimist who knew just how to delicately balance being our advocate while respecting and appreciating hospital protocol. We were impressed with her familiarity with hospital technology and baby monitoring, and she was often able to translate what the doctors were advising in a way that was both encouraging and respectful. She was an incredible leader who was fully committed to facilitating our vision for birth, and we remain very satisfied with the outcome. We feel deeply blessed to have had Myla in the delivery room with us. With her proactive style, she captured some meaningful photographs for us, offered some helpful breastfeeding tips and also helped transport my placenta for encapsulation. Her follow-up visit was both thorough and very uplifting. It’s so clear that Myla is effortlessly using her gifts to support and empower women during their child birthing experiences. Thank you, Myla!
