I recently met with Nicole at Sudharma Birth Services and am curious to hear about people's experiences with her. I saw a previous thread on her but it was a few years ago and wanted to see if there were any recent opinions on her personality and what she's like to work with. My husband and I met with her and she was very nice but not very talkative. I am looking for someone that isn't going to have such a strong personality that I feel like I am birthing on a military base. I am also a southerner (living in a foreign land ) so I am looking for someone with a very nurturing personality.

I have not worked with Nicole since she has become a midwife, but while she was a midwife apprentice she was my doula for my DS's birth and I can not say enough good things about her. I really like her vibe and I instantly connected with her the second I met her. I feel she is nurturing, and she is very good at being a strong support that makes women feel powerful. She is extremely passionate about her work and her belief in women and their strength and ability to birth. The only time I've seen her become fierce is when she is fighting FOR a woman's rights. This most recently came up when one of her placenta encapsulation clients was having issues getting her placenta released by the hospital and Nicole helped launch a community effort to show a large support in eventually getting the hospital to concede in releasing the placenta.
She is a very lovely person all around and I highly recommend her. :-)
