2020 Daddy Doula Nicho, Story told by Katia

Nominee for Daddy Doula Award 2020

My partner, Nicho

Why do you feel this Daddy Doula deserves the award?

My partner, Nicho, is my bright light, our family’s guiding light, no matter what the storm he is consistently present for us. Present and steady. Steady is his way and for this reliability, I’m always grateful. The past eight months I’ve slowly regained my ground but through the fog of the first few months, it was his steady light I could see and feel without a doubt. He kept his loving gaze on me, he held me in his arms, following the rhythms of my birth journey closely. He was a constant source of comfort and reassurance. Through pre-labour, active labour and post-delivery he kept me at ease by holding space with absolutely no fear… We didn’t spend a night in the hospital following the birth, he knew we would be more comfortable at home and he assured me that I would know instinctively what to do. He was right. Our first night, the three of us fell sound asleep… I felt enveloped by security, my love, riding the bliss wave with my new family x
